Inhale by Kendall Grey

Written By: Kellie - Feb• 15•12

ARC provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Synopsis: 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. -Goodreads

Review: Despite the fact that I also write for a self-pubbed book review site, I can still be a little wary about reading self-published or indie books… Inhale has proven to me once and for all that these types of books can be just as good, if not better, than their traditionally published counterparts. Throughout the entire book it was so clear that Kendall Grey is infinately passionate, not just about writing and whales but about life as a whole. It made for a pretty fantastic read.

Now, I’m guessing that any of you who aren’t familiar with Inhale are probably thinking… “huh? whales?”, so I’ll jump into that for a second. We all have our random things that we’re passionate about, that we try to learn everything we can about, that we dream about turning into a career. Well for Kendall Grey and one of her main characters, it’s all about whales. Zoe is a whale biologist who clearly cares about her work and it doesn’t take long for the reader to become just as passionate about everything Zoe cares about.

You will quickly come to feel like you really know Zoe and Gavin and care about what happens to them. They are both fully fleshed out characters with believable personalities and complex histories.

The plot flows smoothly and easily which made this book so easy to get hooked on and stay hooked on. I finished it in just a couple of days. I don’t want to give anything away since this book is fully powered by ‘what happens next!’, so you’re just going to need to trust me and go read this book!

If you haven’t guessed it yet… I highly recommend this book! If you’re a die-hard urban fantasy fan, then this is a must read! The book comes out May 1st, so be sure to keep an eye out for it as it’s already getting a lot of hype in the blog-o-sphere.

Check back in tomorrow for a special guest post from Inhale’s author, Kendall Grey!
