Shelves: reviewed, 4-star, horror
Brothers of Blood has an interesting idea and some creative language. It belongs to the transgressive mode and the horror tradition as you might have guessed from the title.

The idea behind Brothers of Blood is one of its best components. The story focuses on a brother and sister over two periods of time. The first part sees Beau, the older brother, going into a murderous rage that he drags his sister, Belle, into. The second Beau comes back from prison a reformed man to find Belle has taken up

Perchance the precocious antiheroes were more parsimonious in their incessant utilization of polysyllabic enunciations, and the scribe not so fond of extemporaneous bouts of inordinate description, this literary endeavor may be more palatable. Rogers writes as if somebody bet him that he (Rogers) couldn't use every word in Roget's Thesaurus in a single book. I personally also have an extensive vocabulary, but I don't use it in every sentence. The storyline itself was interesting, but the ...more

I received this book as part of a free ebook promotion and honestly, I don't know what made me actually take the time to read it before hand. However, it is a far more intelligent book than I expected and even though it is indeed graphic, it wears its literary influences on its shoulders. He quotes Edgar Allen Poe in a pretty good show of the main character's brain power. Her slick handling of her friendships to better manipulate them into murders is just as impressive.

Not ever character is

I was scared, I cried, and I laughed a lot. You wouldnt know it by the synopsis, but it's pretty dang funny. I hope there's a sequel!

Pretty dark and sometimes graphic, but it does really seem to be for plot purposes and characters. Id love this for Netflix or HBO!

This book reminds me of what Less Than Zero would be like had it been written by Chuck Palahniuk. The content of the book is controversial and the transgressions of the characters themselves may cause certain readers to throw it away unfinished. I, on the other hand, found myself unable to put it down. This was due in part to the authors risky but successful tactic of 'removing' one of the main characters for 2/3 of the story after only the first few chapters. The first chapter alone contains ...more

Good story. Totally worth your time.
Needs a proofread for spelling and grammar though.

If A Clockwork Orange existed in the present, it would look like this. Gritty as hell! Frighteningly realistic regarding the mindset of some of today's youth

Brothers of Blood begins with a confused narrative voice that is somewhat cleared up by the middle of the book but not soon enough for the reader to enjoy the story, if this is a story one can be said to 'enjoy'. Characters seem to face little consequences or conflict to do with the vile acts they commit and the novel feels more like a fever dream than a glimpse into the life of Belle and her brothers. Read with caution, perseverance is needed to wade through the thesaurus heavy writing, and ...more
