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!
