What People Are Saying about the Parting Breath Series
"This is some of the purest, highest quality writing I have encountered and it makes my heart happy."
-Megan H, Positively Imperfect
"By the second page I was intrigued by the idea of the land being a living entity. That was indescribable, thrilling. It was completely new." -Rachel M, NC
"The story had me crying and laughing, and some places just plain cringing... I give it five stars and can’t wait until the next book is out... I loved it." -Jodi Woody, author
"I’m going to reread these. I feel like I’m missing a close friend who I walked a long journey with and now they have walked out of my life." -Marianne S, CA
"The trouble with good books is that once they have been read, they leave a longing that cannot be quite filled. It is an ache indeed, but an ache that stands as the mark of a book well done, for it requires the creation of a world and characters with whom we may truly fall in love. With that said, I miss Massada."
-Maria B, LA
"I recommend the book... I think Ms. Kennedy has a bright future and I am excited to see what the rest of the trilogy holds."
-Beth R, at Lit By the Tree
"Startling in its originality." -John M, Germany
"It was like an artist took a paintbrush and painted the scenes in this book. The words were like a song. It sang to me."
-Everley Dawn, Everley Dawn's Novel Reviews
"It's not often that I read a book more than once, but I will definitely read these again." -Jill W, GA
"I am hooked!" -Megan F, TX
"These books are a thoughtful adventure both in the characters' movements of mind and hearts, and in the plot itself. It's the kind of journey that seeks the ultimate good in humanity and existence without coming right out and saying so."
-April B, MN
"Monica Kennedy has crafted characters that you naturally invest in, amidst a world that lives and breathes both on and off the page. Massada and it's people are as integral and captivating as the story Kennedy has created; there are no easy escapes here, and our heroes’ work is never finished… but you'll want to see them through to the bitter end." -Danielle P, NE
