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 t

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 overwhe ...more

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 do ...more

I'm not sure how any of the reviewers didn't finish this book. I was interested from beginning to end. It isnt the typical coming of age tale and I felt that even when there are unrealist moments, the realism is that even the bad guys have lives and go about their days in between evil acts. I loved it. Very unconventional and oddly beautiful. ...more

DNF. I thought the relationship between Beau and Belle is interesting enough in the beginning but when other characters come into the picture, I struggled to keep my interest. I gave it until 25% in my Kindle copy but could not connect to the storyline.

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 rede
