Truman and Camille’s father has returned to the magical Breath World in search of a stolen orb that keeps the balance between his world and our own. Check out Kidzworld’s book review of The Ever Breath by Julianna Baggot.


Family History

Still struggling with their father’s disappearance, twins Truman and Camille spend winter break with their grandmother Swelda (whom they’ve never met). And she’s definitely strange. No wonder their father never talked about his past. Who would have believed that he grew up in a beat up house sitting next to the 17th hole on a golf course? Or that his kooky mother believes that they’re from a place called the Breath World?


Maintaining Balance

According to Swelda, their father returned to the Breath World for a very noble purpose: to retrieve a magical orb known as the Ever Breath which keeps the two worlds in balance. Without it, dreams and imagination will eventually disappear from the real world.


Magical Creatures

Truman and Camille soon find the entrance to the Breath World, and discover a land where ogres, dragons and fairies live among them, and vampires and werewolves are feared predators. An organization called the Office of Official Affairs is using brutal methods to preserve the “good” in the Breath World, assuming that everyone who disagrees with them is “bad.” The Office of Official Affairs is on the hunt for the twins’ father. Somehow Truman and Camille must find their father and help him recover the Ever Breath, before their identities are revealed.


The Bottom Line

At 229 pages, The Ever Breath by Julianna Baggot is a quick and magical story. It’s a great book for young adults who love fantasy novels. And best of all, it’s the first book in a series! Give us your opinion on The Ever Breath in our comments section below!

    Chapter 2- "Dinner's ready! Oh who's this?" a woman said, staring at me. "Mum, it's the Doctor!" Valetina replied. "The Doctor? Valentina, stop beling everything you watch!" her mother told her. "He's real.  Just look at him!" Valentina  told them both. "Calm down, Valetina." I told her. she nodded and continued to smile. "I am sorry. She has ADHD."  the man told me. "Oh." "It's also because I've veen often depressed." Valentina added, afterwards. "Why?" I asked. "I'll tell you later." Valentina told me with a wink. "Alright. Lets have a fanastic meal!"  the woman annouched . Valentina and her father left to the kitenchen, and I followed. I found an empty seat next to Valentina.  They had a cooked pig. "Is this fine?" the woman asked me. " It's fanastic!" I yelled. I cut a peice off and put it on my plate. "May I cut Valetina a peice?"  I asked. "Sure."  her father told me. I cut a peice for her and put it on her plate. She smiled at me and ate. I eyed the others then decided to take a bit. It was good,with a flavor I never tasted.

    (Most characters belong to BBC, the creators of Doctor Who. The referances belong to their owners) You don't know what your fighting for.  What you came here for, feeling all alone. You have loved. You have lost. How does this keep happening? All alone, on your own. But you shouldn't give up, don't ever do that. Chapter 1-  Clarla. Oh how I miss her.  Why does the memories live on, after the battle with the daleks? I  hid my tears once I entered my TARDIS, feeling the erge to go on.  I remembered something. Something old. I glanced out of my TARDIS and gazed at the stars. Oh, Gallifrey, glowing lighly. I sighed once some clouds invaded the sky. "Why are you out in the cold?" a man asked me.  "I was just enjoying the stars, when the clouds shaded my view." I told him. "Oh you must be cold, come on inside." the man told me. I followed him into his house. "Hello!" a young girl came to me smiling. "Hi,"  I muttered pulling out my sonic screwdriver. "You must be the doctor! Oh, how I heard stories about you!"  she  told me, loudly. "Valentina, you do not speak to  a guest like he's the King of England!" the man snapped. "It's alright."I told him. "My wife is cooking dinner. Mine if you stay?" he asked me. "I would stay for dinner." I told him. This made Valetina smile. *Stay tuned after the break please do not coment*
