Présentation de l'éditeur

Book 1 in the JUST BREATHE Trilogy

WARNING: This book contains graphic language, sex, and some violence. NOT SUITABLE FOR READERS UNDER THE AGE OF 18.

Strangers in reality, inseparable in dreams…

After years of suffocating under her boss’s scrutiny, whale biologist Zoe Morgan finally lands a job as director of a tagging project in Hervey Bay, Australia. Success Down Under all but guarantees her the promotion of a lifetime, and Zoe won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. Not the whale voices she suddenly hears in her head, not the ex who won’t take no for an answer, and especially not the gorgeous figment of her imagination who keeps saving her from the fiery hell of her dreams.

Gavin Cassidy hasn’t been called to help a human Wyldling in over a year, which is fine by him. Still blaming himself for the death of his partner, he keeps the guilt at bay by indulging in every excess his rock star persona affords. That is, until he’s summoned to protect Zoe from hungry Fyre Elementals and learns his new charge is the key to restoring order in the dying Dreaming. He never expects to fall for the feisty Dr. Morgan…nor does he realize he may have to sacrifice the woman he loves to save an entire country.

Biographie de l'auteur

Kendall Grey, word wrangler, whale warrior, wicked wench, and lover of tongue-tripping alliteration, was born without an off-switch between her brain and mouth. She’s been called the “Flux Capacitor of Twitter” and “A little package of love all wrapped up in F-word paper,” but she’s really just a maniacal writer relaying eyewitness accounts of the rave inside her head. She writes urban fantasy with strong romantic elements and also dabbles in erotica and horror on occasion. Kendall lives off a dirt road near Atlanta, Georgia, but don’t hold that against her.

INHALE

Indie author Kendall Grey is proof that there is no coincidence. Everything happens for a purpose and most things are more connected than we know.

Ms. Grey has taken Urban Fantasy to new heights with Inhale, combining science, fantasy and folklore to weave a tale that feels frighteningly real. After all, everyone dreams, right? You will wish you could dream up Gavin Cassidy, but you will need to take him along with the night creatures of The Dreaming and their desire for your elements.

A modern take on the mythology of `Elementals', Ms. Grey does not disappoint in her world building. Her characters as so multi-dimensional you cannot help but become engaged in their struggles. The story is fast paced, and I found myself having a hard time putting it down, except when I needed to catch my breath. The sex is hot. Very hot. But, it does not overtake the plot, nor is it gratuitous. Fortunately, most of the book takes place on or near the water, so everybody has the opportunity to cool off.

The first in a trilogy, Inhale ends nicely, but leaves the reader anxiously awaiting more. I highly recommend this book to the adult reader who enjoys Fantasy with a very real feel. I suspect Ms. Grey is an author to keep a close eye on. Her writing abilities and imagination far exceed what one might expect from a `first time full-length' novelist. I predict we'll be hearing a lot more from Ms. Grey. At least, I hope so.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the best book I have read this year! 1 mai 2012
Par Delphina - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is not my review, I will write it up tomorrow, but I just have to shout: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I HAVE EVER READ!!!!!!!

*************************************************************************

OK, so here is my actual review. I was just to stinkin' excited not to post a comment when I finished it, but way to tired to form coherent sentences with anything close to decent editing skills.

I was not exaggerating my love for this book. When I decided to review this arc, I was expecting to like it. The premise was different and the buzz was good. I never expected to absolutely love it. This story of love and fate and balance and becoming the person you were meant to be was beautifully woven.

Normally, here is where I say, "I'll tell you what I liked about it", but with this review I need to say, "loved" about it:

*I have always loved whales and felt they held a kind of "magic" for lack of a better world. I really enjoyed how Kendall blended the science and fantasy in this story. I do not know how to tell you exactly what I mean here without giving spoilers, but I believed.

*The characters were not perfect or always likable, but you cared about them and understood their actions. It was fascinating to see such well developed characters as not only they saw themselves, but as others saw them. The way Zoe and Gavin saw each other was so completely different than they saw themselves and so completely different than I saw them.

*The authors use of language was amazing. Different characters have different dialects and slang and they stayed true to their voice throughout the book. The story takes place, for the most part, in Australia, but has characters from elsewhere, making this exceptionally impressive. Ok, that statement may not be true. A lot of the book took place in Dreaming, but the base was Australia. Either which way, the characters held their voices.

*The blend of aboriginal lore with the science made for a very unique story. The amount of research that went into this novel must have been immense.

*This book beyond had the "I can not put this down" factor. I felt myself anxious to find out what was on the next page. This was in the action scenes as well as the interpersonal scenes. I can not tell you why without being spoilery, but the scene at Shaggy's had me on the edge of my seat.

*If you are worried that with all my talk of science and lore that there would not be some heat, have no fear ;).

*The ending. It was a complete story, but left enough open to make you want more.

*The profits from this book and all of the books in the trilogy are going to whale education programs!!!!!!

I can not even tell you how much I am anticipating the next book in this series. I almost wish I had not gotten to read this one early because now I need to wait extra long to read the next book. Speaking of this being an arc, because of that I can not comment on what the final editing and formatting will be like, but they seemed really strong in the copy I have.

Kendall, If you read this, please release your next book tomorrow. Thank you ;)

This is not a YA read and I do not recommend it for those under 18. One of the main characters is a rock start so you see some of that world as it, unfortunately, is and the main characters do express their feelings and attraction for each other.

4.5 stars.

Inhale is the entertaining fantasy novel that introduces the talents of Kendall Grey to the world. It is my impression that she has written shorter works but this is the first full-length book which amazingly is part of a trilogy! Despite the somewhat familiar use of beings called Elementals (Fyre, Waeter, Aer and Erthe), the author creatively melds an alternate reality called Dreaming with experiences in the real world (Realis). The Elementals are "ancient creatures ... that thrive on hybrid elements created by humans...who are always hungry."

Engaging characters ensnare the reader on a breathless ride to free a trapped whale (I loved the repartee about inheritances while Zoe and Adriene struggle on the water) then drag one into the morass of emotions of Gavin and his daily fight to regain equilibrium both in his role as a musician and as a Sentinel. The enigmatic aboriginal Sentinel known as Yileen provides clues and his own brand of assistance but the ongoing struggle will require the efforts of many to try to protect humans from the depredations of the Elementals. Sizzling love scenes are intermingled with those that vividly conjure up the vast ocean and the fascinating cetaceans that travel through that medium. A mysterious nemesis lurks in the background of the real world even as an overt attack is being orchestrated in Dreaming and Zoe will have to learn how to cope against both even as she strives to determine who her allies and enemies truly are. A great start to the series introducing a talented author who is unselfishly donating her profits for Whale education.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 It's was an okay but flawed read 16 juin 2012
Par Kat Kennedy - Publié sur Amazon.com

I met Kendall Grey in Kara's chat and resolved to try and read every author who attended since they were all fabulous people. Inhale was my maiden voyage into this endeavour and came with a strong recommendation from my dear friend.

I purchased a copy and eagerly sat down to read. I applaud Grey on her imagination and unique world-building. Also her research and attention to detail gets a credit. I wasn't able to finish this novel despite rather liking both of the main protagonists and generally appreciating the magic system and society she created.

I had to stop reading though because I found the writing very difficult to submerge myself in.

It felt like every third sentence was doused in jarring, uncomfortable metaphors and the similes were not a great improvement.

Of course, the first odd bit of writing to really catch my eye was on page 19 - not a great start:

"Or innocent people woke up dead."

This reminded me of a quote from Cordelia to Giles in Buffy. Something along the lines of, "If you're not careful, one day you're going to wake up in a coma."

If anyone remembers this episode, Giles' reaction to that comment was my exact reaction to the line above.

And if that had been the worst of it I would have gotten the hell over it and gotten back to reading and trying to submerge myself in the world and narrative. But it wasn't.

"The implications rushed like a runaway bowling ball on a pre-ordained path to a game-winning strike. For the opposing team."

"The Sentinel's body convulsed, her fear producing more Fire. Like pulling spaghetti from a steaming pot, the jackals dredged out the last few red sparks and fought over them with bared teeth."

These are the examples that most stick out. It's not that they're horrible but, to me, they felt craftless and cumbersome in the text. There was an awkward, rough quality to the prose that made it difficult for me to connect to the writing.

When I realized how hard I was working to try and enjoy the story, I mostly gave up. For this caliber of novel, I expect to be swept away, not to endure a hard slog against the current.

Goodness, now I'm doing it too! Signing off before it spreads and gets worse!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but very hard to follow 16 juillet 2012

Sorry mate. I didnt quite enjoy this book at all. I was really interested in it at first because of the fact that we were going to be reading about a Scientist who loves & saves whales. I never really expected it to be covered on Aboriginal mythology? but that was great too! And the love scenes were okay yet intensely hot as well. I dont know why I couldnt get into it. I found myself skim reading most of it. Only the good parts did I actually read especially the action between the sentinels and elementals. I'm thinking this is probably just me. I just couldnt grasp the dreamsense plane and Realis plane linking together. Although its a different concept for me I guess. Im currently reading the second book Exhale only because I have to.

UPDATE: the book Exhale was excellent!! Im so glad I kept going :)
