Every Word - Ellie Marney
(Every Breath #2)

Released: June 1, 2014
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
SynopsisJames Mycroft has just left for London to investigate a car accident similar to the one that killed his parents seven years ago...without saying goodbye to Rachel Watts, his 'partner in crime'.

Rachel is furious and worried about his strange behaviour - not that Mycroft's ever exactly normal, but London is the scene of so many of his nightmares. So Rachel jumps on a plane to follow him...and lands straight in a whole storm of trouble.

The theft of a copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, the possible murder of a rare books conservator, and the deaths of Mycroft's parents...Can Watts help Mycroft make sense of the three events - or will she lose him forever?

Sparks fly when Watts and Mycroft reunite in this second sophisticated thriller about the teen sleuthing duo.

What I Thought: Every Word is the sequel to Every Breath, and picks up 8 weeks later. Mycroft has been following a case of the theft of Shakespeare's Folio - a book worth six million pounds. This leads to the discovery of a dead librarian in a carjacking similar to that of his parents, causing him to travel to London alongside Professor Walsh to investigate. Rachel, being worried about her new boyfriend's past, decides to jump on a plane and follow him. This, of course, leads to plenty of drama and action and a rather terrifying situation, again.

I don't even understand how Mycroft and Watts end up in these situations, and even though I find it quite realistic, I enjoyed almost every second reading these stories. Ellie Marney has given us a fantastic YA version of Shelock Holmes and somehow, with her tremendous writing, she manages to pull it off astoundingly well. Mycroft opens up to Watts about his past, his parents and his problems and Rachel has to figure out how exactly to tread these newfound waters. Plus, they are a couple now, and are thinking sexy couple things which certainly brings new heat to the story.

Every Word was an amazing sequel, with a killer ending that left me desperate for the final book, Every Move. BRING ON MARCH 2015!!
So if you haven't read Every Word yet, make sure you do, because this one may (definitely) leave you a bit breathless.

The Good: Things heat up to whole new levels between Mycroft and Watts, and it's freaking awesome.

The Bad: While I love the way these stories go, I can't help but read them with with this constant niggling feeling that likes to remind me how unrealistic some of the situations actually are. Like, shut up brain, who cares right.
