murders in the city after having come together as a group in public areas swarming in on one victim and attacking until they die.The police are no closer to solving the murders and tracking down the Swarm than they were a couple of years ago when the attacks began so Lia has been determined to get justice for her father When Lia figures out how the group communicates she finds herself right in the middle of the most recent attack.There is something about realistic fiction that just pulls me into a story even , perhaps just the added fear of this could be anyone Every Stolen Breath had that extra curiosity about it within an action packed fictional thriller However, there are little details in here that I just didn t feel were overly believable lowering my rating to 3 1 2 stars.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.Forreviews please visit Kimberly Gabriel s heart racing YA thriller Every Stolen Breath was such a delight to read and truly hard to put down

Gabriel s heart racing YA thriller Every Stolen Breath was such a delight to read and truly hard to put down Filled with tension and inspired by the real life flash mob violence that occurred in Chicago nearly a decade ago, this is a must read thriller this year.Lia is such an interesting and unique character She suffers from debilitating asthma and she also is still working through PTSD since the murder of her father two years ago I really grew to love Lia from the very beginning of this book She s an unlikely heroine emotionally fragile and physically she s a bit of an underdog But her heart is what motivates her, and it is an unstoppable force.I live in Chicago, and I remember the chaos of the Magnificent Mile flash mob attacks Groups of people, often coordinated via social media or other difficult to track ways, would assemble and when they got the notification to activate, they would stage horrific attacks on businesses and people in the area It was a really scary time and one that was disturbing for so many residents.In the book, Lia s father was a prosecutor investigating a string of similar attacks when he becomes the victim of one himself Lia knows that these attacks are not as random as they appear, and for two years she follows any thread she can find And finally, it pays off She deciphers a tweet that indicates where the next attack will be and she shows up after forwarding it to the police.The events of the book are so suspenseful, I was truly on the edge of my seat at times Along the way, Lia partners with a group of others who are interested in uncovering what is happening behind the attacks I was particularly intrigued by the characters of Adam and Ryan in very different ways , who offer hacking and reporting expertise to her investigation These skills are needed for Lia to make progress, but her drive, tenacity, and intelligence are key as well There s a lot to learn about both Adam and Ryan, but I don t want to spoil anything so I ll leave my thoughts at intriguing The attacks themselves are appalling and involve quite a bit of violence, though I thought the author did a fantastic job of leaving out any graphic content The darkness of the individuals behind the attacks was prominent and shocking I felt the terror these attacks would spark, and I appreciated the way Lia refused to back down from finding answers.Fast paced and filled with tautly wound tension, this is a fantastic thriller that will appeal to fans of both YA and adult fiction Thank you to TLC Book Tours for my copy Opinions are my own

for Kimberly Gabriel s brilliantly plotted debut I couldn t seem to resist the intriguing synopsis and a colorful book cover that required a full stop and several minutes to thoroughly examine Ms Gabriel s storylines were diabolically clever and fiendishly crafted while populated with uniquely compelling and intriguing characters of all ages and levels of mistrust and suspicion I was immediately sucked into Lia s mono focused and quivering vortex of distrust and dramatic catastrophic thinking This mesmerizing tale was written from the first person POV of an angsty sixteen year old asthmatic who proved to be rather unstable with significant features of PTSD including panic attacks, auditory and visual hallucinations, paranoia, delusions, and crippling anxiety and self consciousness She was also stubbornly persistent, grief driven, highly resourceful, and had the arrogance of youth in her toolkit With cunning and deftly written twists and turns, Ms Gabriel has made a stunning and flawless debut As I was making my way through this tautly penned and complex tale, I had a striking epiphany of why I tend to eschew this genre while simultaneously realizing this book was well worth the disheartening and stark reminders of the painful sense of powerlessness and nettling subjugation and disregard experienced as a teenager with two XX chromosomes While I vastly enjoyed her work, I still haven t decided whether I should thank the author for the personal insight or swear a pox on her instead Kimberly Gabriel s debut was tense and riveting An addictive YA thriller based on true events Two years ago Lia s father was killed by a swarm of wild organized teenagers and he was not the only victim of the swarm since The attack Lia has suffered from PTSD that

this book to be so remarkable Fast paced, action packed, and completely absorbing from first page to last Lia was a fantastic character and completely Drew me into the story I was right there with her trying to figure out who the guilty parties were and who she could trust There is a bit of a romance in this book, but it definitely took the backseat to the Mystery I can t even imagine being killed by a swarm of angry teenagers so scary and what made it scarier is that this actually happened in Chicago in 2011 I am glad to see that there areandyoung adult mystery thriller s being released, but I have to say this book is perfect for readers of all ages A wild ride that will keep you guessing until the bitter end Looking forward to what is next from Miss Gabriel.This book in emojis The Swarm Is

Sentences shorten Paragraphs condense Action leaps forward So often when I read, I find my inner editor wanting to slash irrelevant or repetitive content, but nothing s wasted here Though I m a big fan of love stories, in this particular case, the romance took a back seat for me, and I think intentionally so This is a story about a girl driven to uncover truth That s the engine, and one I think readers will thoroughly enjoy following There are just enough characters to build a suspect list while the story never gets bogged down with too many names to sort out We always have visuals to anchor to and yet not a page goes by without something happening.As a long time Chicago ite, I also loved seeing the city play such a huge role in the story It s not just background It s a character all its own ESB is a great read for lovers of suspense and political intrigue A strong willed but flawed heroine A hint of romance A corrupt but compelling city And a constant uncertainty about who s an ally and who s an antagonist Great stuff Look forward to seeing what Gabriel writes next From the moment I picked up Gabriel s debut YA thriller, I was completely immersed When I wasn t reading it, I was thinking about it I was absolutely hooked from the get go needing to know what would happen next With its fast paced plot and cast of complicated, well developed characters, it s become a new favorite
