The Vampire Diaries meets Native lore in this dark fantasy romance.
An immortal guardian.
A soul-stealing enemy.
A dangerous, new power.
Only the Spirit Breather can stand against the darkness…
Months after surviving an assault that nearly claimed her life, Emily Morrow’s summer goal is to forget about the memories that lurk in her nightmares. So when her friends invite her on a post-grad camping trip in the mountains, she jumps at the chance to escape her haunting past, even for just a few days.
But even miles from home, Emily’s past is closer than ever.
When her best friend, Kadie, is snatched by the dark creatures nesting in the forest, Emily comes face to face with the truth behind her chilling past. Together, with the mysterious Joseph Stomper, who is much more than he seems, Emily must find the courage to embrace her role in a centuries-old prophecy and harness a dangerous gift before she loses everyone she loves.
With Kadie’s life hanging in the balance, will Emily learn to control her new power? Or will the darkness destroy them both?
Filled with deadly magic, frightening folklore, and forbidden romance, The Spirit Breather is a spine-tingling paranormal fantasy that will keep you turning pages well past your bedtime.
What Readers are Saying:
“Sometimes a book will come along that will surprise and captivate you, it will draw you into the story and make you a part of the world. This is such a book!! This book was simply brilliant!!! I adored every minute of it.” – Natalie, A Book Lover’s Life
“It was so refreshing to open this book up to a new kind of story, with Native American characters taking center-stage and diving into an entire mythos of lore, spiritual awakening, latent magical powers, ageless sage leaders, and, naturally, angsty young people battling not only big scary monsters, but themselves in a conflict of deep personal struggle, of self discovery, of a painful past, and of a hopeful future.” – Dustin Street, Big Small Town Books
“The amount of detail and heart Harris put into her characters and setting make The Spirit Breather stand out from the crowd. The story is wildly entertaining, the characters are easy to love, the plot is carefully crafted, and the writing is lovely. This was a refreshing read and I’m looking forward to more about Joseph and Emily in the future.” – Amazon Customer

What author would you totally fan?
Hands-down, S.E. Hinton.
I’ve always wanted to meet her. When I read The Outsiders in the sixth grade, I knew I wanted to be an author. When I found out she was only seventeen when she wrote The Outsiders, I wanted to meet her. I have read everything she has written. Seriously, if I could have dinner with anyone and ask them all of my authorly questions, I would choose her!
What makes you cringe?
So many things! I teach 9th grade English, so I hear a lot of cringe-worthy things on a daily basis, but here are the big ones:
- When I can hear someone audibly chew or swallow while eating or drinking. It makes me want to gag while simultaneously cringing. This is definitely my “fingernails across the chalkboard” trigger.
- When people say “supposubly” instead of supposedly or “libarry” instead of Library.
Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I start with a loose plot outline–just a basic direction with key points I want to meet along the way. Then, I follow my characters where they lead me. I heard a lecture called “Writing into the Dark” that totally changed my perspective on outlining and encouraged me to trust my gut, rather than my OCD plans. Allowing my characters to drive the story also makes writing so much more enjoyable and prevents burnout.
Is there a word you love to use?
Shenanigans and bamboozled are two of my favorite words. I don’t really know why.
Also, if you have any pictures of your pet you would like to share, please attach them. My readers love animals!
Awesome! I have two cats, Ollivander, named after JK Rowling’s famed wand maker, and Daisy Faye, Gatsby’s belle of Louisville!
