When Aisling turns 21, she starts to change.

A few weeks later, and 10 years after her mother was killed in an accident, Aisling's grandmother passes away; leaving her with the surprise of her being a witch, a grimoire (spell book) that belonged to her mother, and endless questions she has no idea how to get answers to.

Clueless as to what being a witch meant for her, Aisling searches the library useless book after book with no luck .

Until Connor walks into her life unexpectedly, agrees to help

This is a very beautifully and detailed written book and the very first in the Earthen witch series.The scenes described can almost make the reader picture themselves in a movie.

My full length, in depth review of Just Breathe can be read at my book blog Another World . Below is an overview of my thoughts after I read the book.

I've bumped up my rating to 5 stars, and I'm very happy to do so. This is one of those story's of which the deeper the insights you have into it, the more rewarding a read it becomes.


How is it possible I didn’t know that Kim Harrison and J.R. Ward had a secret love-child who goes by the name Sarah Doughty? I have no idea,

I think this book was well written and the characters were strong, yet vulnerable. There was adventure and romance as well as gripping chapters. Sarah, proud to know you and entertaining read.
Looking forward to the series.

The book 'Just Breathe' follows the story of a girl who just finds out that she is a very powerful witch. In her normal life so far, she realizes that she is not so normal after all. The book, which is the first part of the Earthen Witches series, beautifully traces her transformation from a simple girl to a powerful witch. The book is very beautifully written. The characters are introduced in such a way that you form an instant connection with them. The book has all the elements that make it am ...more

I came across Sarah Doughty on WordPress and that was why I originally read this book. it is generous of her to distribute these books free. When I read it I found it really steamy and sexy. Whew! I must be getting old. It is supposed to be for young adults and people who like the paranormal romance genre will love it. One thing I found really interesting is that there are descriptions of aura colours and what they mean throughout the story. Some people can see auras and they would recognize the ...more

Reading Just Breathe was akin to taking a breath of fresh air. It’s just so…refreshingly different. Sarah has taken many common tropes found within urban fantasy and paranormal romance and has turned them on their heads, thereby creating the perfect start to what promises to be an action-packed, exhilarating series.

The first aspect of this novel that I want to draw attention to is Connor, a light witch who tasks himself with the job of guiding Aisling as she enters an, until recently, unknown wo

okay, so I'm not a huge fan of witches or vampire kind of books, but having said that, I downloaded the e-copy of this book. Initially, it was all blur, but as the story took pace, my excitement also increased and ended up liking the whole concept of natural powers! I want that power too!! haha author has very well kept the readers on seat. And I read that the author ended up writing this book and probably a series of books from mere a single dream. That's commendable! Looking forward to read mo ...more

The book covered all the bases of a good fantasy novel. If you like vampires, werewolves, guardians, witches, romance and deranged witch hunters this book is a must read. Aisling Green must learn to access her power while trying to keep herself and her mate alive. She must battle power hungry, power stealing witches and learn to access her own power at the same time. She must also come to terms with the abuse she suffered as a child at the hands of her step father. This is a fast paced page turn ...more

It's a whole new world and view on witches and the supernatural. I really enjoyed that we get to learn about the world with the main character, as the story develops and she learns about what she can do we also learn about her and the world she's in. The excitement and curiosity builds up and Sarah's got us on the edge wanting to know more.
The characters are well built and you just crave to know more about their stories.
Just Breathe got easily on my favs list.

Having post traumatic stress disorder my self I must say I really appreciated how Sarah presented her characters. Even with so much to overcome they show vulnerability yet a strength of heart and character. Add onto that a delightfully new take on "powers" and the whole spectrum of fantasy type characters and I was sold. Wonderfully written and full of heart. Kept me coming back for more.

Once again, Sarah Doughty doesn't disappoint! Be prepared to be transfixed as her novel is one which you will be unable to put down as you join Aisling on her new journey of discovering more about herself and finding her true love.

I fell in love with the setting, the characters, the pacing, and the authors attention to detail. All of these elements held the story together beautifully, highlighting the central theme of strength through the healing power of love.
