Review: Silencing Breath by Joanne Brothwell

Silencing Breath, book two in the Stealing Breath series.

Just as Sarah Ross is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an Indigo Child and settling into a normal life with her beloved Evan, her entire world shatters when Evan disappears without a trace. 

Desperate to find him, Sarah’s search leads her to a sadistic serial killer who confirms her worst fears are true; Evan has been kidnapped, and he is once again in the clutches of his abusive family of necromancers. 

Sarah uncovers not only Evan's dark past he tried so desperately to protect her from, but also The Key of Solomon, an ancient text for summoning the dead.

Knowing her abilities are limited in the face of this ancient power, Sarah is forced to face the Malandanti in order to save him. However, one question remains: once he is found, will Evan be the same man she fell in love with?
My Review:

This was truly a phenomenal  sequel to the action-packed introduction Stealing Breath.  We begin with our star-crossed heroes settling into their now comfortable lives.  It had been two years since the last attack and Evan and Sarah have stopped looking over their shoulders and started rebuilding their relationship.  They should have known better.  Evan's evil brother is bent on revenge and has resurrected a shocking ally from the grave.  The work together to not only kidnap Evan, but begin the "cleansing" process to bring him back to their side.  The throw unimaginable tortures upon him and allow his spirit and body to slowing die.  Is there no hope for our hero?

Sarah gathers her friends together again and researches every angle for possible clues.  How did this happen?  There are some surprising developments inside her circle of friends and some lives are lost.  When they finally free Evan, he is no longer the man she fell in love with and their connection to each other is severed.  Can Sarah find a way to bring him back?

This book ends on a horrible awesome cliffhanger!!  I was so mad, but it was a happy mad.  I desperately begin searching for book 3 and found to my immense relief that it was out and is now in my possession!  I simply must know how this story concludes!  It was that good!!  I really enjoyed the suspense, the build-up, the plot twists, and the character changes.  This definitely keeps you on your toes!!  Excellent read and I am still loving the unique concepts behind the story.  This is a must read for paranormal lovers!!
