The action in Dying Breath, book 6 in Kory M. Shrum’s Dying for a Living series, is off the charts! The end of the world is quickly approaching, and Jesse Sullivan is in the thick of it, determined to become the apex that will either protect or destroy all of humanity.
Book 6 picks up right where book 5 left off, with a car chase through the Arizona dessert. There are only four partis left, and while Jesse is all too ready for two of them to meet more permanent ends, there’s one in particular that she can’t bear the thought of losing: Maisie, Jesse’s half-sister who’s been snatched up by her homicidal mother—and fellow partis—Georgia. A morbid family reunion in a tiny desert town kicks off this spiral toward an apocalypse that Jesse is only just beginning to understand her role in. Some hard decisions have to be made, and the final choice lies in Jesse’s uncertain hands.
This book took place over the span of one very thrilling day. Every page was packed with action and emotion. The POV was split between Jesse and Maisie, and I really enjoyed the contrast of personalities between the two sisters. I’m so looking forward to the final book next year! Jesse’s story has been building beautifully through the past six books, and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.
