Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7–10—Shaley is on tour with her mom, rock star Rayne. Just hours after being rescued from a kidnapping, and following three deaths on the tour that might be connected to the father Shaley has never met, her mother is attacked and danger could still be around the corner. While the authors set up a thrilling tale, the story is contrived and the secondary characters remain undeveloped.—Richard Winters, Wasco High School, CA

A good book for a young teenager to read.

The writing didn't seem so shallow, the plot was suspenseful, the characters were more interesting & likeable this time around...I would recommend this one, for sure.

Gives us great insight into Shaleys struggles and how she is dealing with all of the problems around her.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With his last breath, the man who had attacked Shaley O'Connor in the previous book, Always Watching, left her with a scary yet tantalizing comment: "Your father sent me." For this rock star's daughter who has never known anything about her father, these words send her into a tailspin on top of the chaos that has already plagued her in the past few days. But before she can share this information, her mother Rayne is injured and Shaley must focus on her healing. It is while Rayne is confined to her hospital bed that Shaley is finally, finally able to hear the story of her father and why she's never known him. But how can she come to terms with everything while there is a fiendish member of the paparazzi following her every move?

Last Breath picks up almost immediately after Always Watching, with Shaley's world taking a major shift after the recent murders on tour and her mother's injuries. The story shifts between Shaley in the present and her mother's story set in 1991-1992. Both points of view are equally enthralling, and Shaley comes to understand why her mother has kept the story from her for so long.

Last Breath is a short novel but a page turner. Shaley is entirely believable as a young woman desperate to know her own story, even if she is a bit headstrong in thinking she can take on anyone. There is a religious bent to the novel, but it is definitely woven well into the story and doesn't pull you out of the storyline itself. My only problem was the actual story of Rayne's past; it seemed to set the father up as a bit of a hero, which made me feel as though the author was trying to make him too sympathetic. But as the story progressed, I could see that in fact the author had plans for him that would take time to mature, so I can forgive that one minor fault. Last Breath is a good mystery that should capture anyone who enjoys watching the past revealed one layer at a time.

As much as I respect these authors, this book didn't draw me in. I seem to have become too cynical in fiction reading these days. Maybe it is the writer in me that is watchful of sentences I can guess what happens next. With that said, I want to support Christian authors whether their work appeals to me personally or not.

Format: Paperback
Shaley O'Connor has always longed for the father she never knew. Being the teenage daughter of a rock star certainly has its perks, but Shaley would gladly trade all the glamour and spotlight for a chance to meet her dad. However, two of her friends have recently been murdered and it seems like her father may be behind it all. Shaley and her mom, Rayne, delve into the past looking for answers unaware that someone is coming for them both.

Last Breath takes up right where Always Watching left off and immediately we're pulled in by the tight suspense and mystery surrounding Shaley. We're treated to a great storytelling device this time around that gives us a glimpse into the past and propels the story ahead. The suspense and mystery elements are strong throughout and Shaley's spiritual journey never seems forced or manufactured. Rather the questions and doubts come across as a natural reaction to the fear and turmoil she is facing.

Brandilyn and Amberly Collins continue to shine in a young adult market that so desperately needs quality stories laced with positive messages. Though geared towards teen girls, this series can be picked up and enjoyed by anyone who loves great suspense. Give the Rayne Tour a try and see for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

A satisfying sequel to Always Watching. This book kept me turning the pages just as much as the first one did.

THE RAYNE TOUR three books would not be complete without LAST BREATH. All three, co-authored by Brandilyn and daughter, Amberly, Collins, are exceptional (even if you are a baby boomer like others and my friend who read them all)! Wonderful imaginations put to work in writing these, exceptional skills so polished and ways of painting images that intrigue and keep you reading to the end of each of these books! Getting the three soon would be a worthwhile purchase, I believe. ~ Jaylene Shrader

I love this series I never read but this series is keeping me reading for two hours straight there are so many cliff hangers that want you to keep going. I believe I read this book in three days.
