Recommended to Maureen by: Paul Falk
Shelves: netgalley
As a former Ministry of Defence employee, author Nick Pope is well placed to bring us this utterly relentless page turner. The plot involves Islamic fanatics bringing jihad to British shores by means of specific targeted attacks. In addition to his own specially chosen targets, terrorist leader Saladin has called on all believers in the UK to carry out their own atrocities in whatever manner they see fit!


Saladin has declared a caliphate on the United Kingdom, and together with his right hand man

Author Nick Pope laid out a horrifying scenario that spilled out into the streets of London sending chills to the bone. In light of the current state of affairs, it just seemed all too real. The momentum of the storyline continued to build as the scenes ratcheted up at break-neck speed. The remarkable plot held me at the edge of my seat with a convincible cast of well-defined characters.

Jihad, a holy war issued from an Islamic militant group had been declared on the people of Britain.

This is a fast-paced action-packed thriller about middle eastern terrorists on the ground in London; the writing is tight and precise, and the main characters are fully fleshed out. I felt like there were gaps left in the tech expert good guy, Raj Hussain's background, but they'll probably get addressed in a sequel. There were several bits that had me pause in appreciation for this author's expertly efficient encapsulation of complex historical, military and political information. It makes sense ...more

Wow! What a book! It was more like a Hollywood movie than a book! Words like thrilling, gripping and page-turner are too less of a praise for this book!

The book is a perfect blend of politics, Intel and modern-day terror situation. What more can one ask for? The book has SAS, SIS, MI5, MI6, GCHQ, UKIP and the newly elected US President - the ultimate super-duper combination.

The story development is excellent. The story is completely engrossing. It takes you on a nail-biting adventure through the

As the combined forces of MI5 and the SAS confront ruthless Islamic fanatics bringing jihad to the UK, two former enemies are reluctantly paired together to combat the threat.

Two deadly but very different terror attacks bring carnage to London on the same day: a suicide bombing in the heart of Soho, and the shooting down of a military aircraft taking part in a ceremonial fly-past. Simultaneously, a previously-unknown Islamic radical calling himself Saladin declares a caliphate in the UK and

Thank you Net Gallery, Thistle Publishing and David Haviland for a kindle copy of Blood Brothers by Nick Pope.

We start in the beginning as the author tells us about his career of 21 years as a civilian employee of the ministry of defense and the people that encouraged him to write this book. I feel this is important to the readers to know because it helps to put this book in prospective that the author knows the inner work told in this story.

It starts in Afghanistan on Sept 17th 2008 with Matt

I was blown away by this book. It reads like a Hollywood movie full of twists and turns on every page and with the daily threat of terrorism hanging over our heads these days it was a scary but also hopeful read that we have a lot of forces fighting to protect us every day.

Blood Brothers by Nick Pope

4 Stars

Enemies can be good friends

An SAS captain, Matt Quill and his men were in Afghanistan attempting to eliminate the target, Ashraf Abdul Khan. Many years later, the same target shot down a large military plane over London with the Stinger RPG.

More chaos ensued when terrorists attacked the LBGTQ pride led by men from the Middle East.

A gay couple were beaten up by the yobs who were the radicalised Muslims enforcing Sharia law. There were also suicide bombers at the

Aircraft's going down, bombs exploding. Just another day of terrorism, in the UK. A multi agency team is being brought together to fight before the streets of London run red with blood. Add in an enemy who is willing to help, but can he be trusted? Will they be able to find and stop the threats? This book was fascinating and thrilling. Scary, because these things happen really happen. . I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes stories of military action. I received this book ...more

Blood Brothers delivers both an action-packed story as well as provocative concepts which speaks to current events. The narrative is easy enough to follow but involves complex issues and reflects the “jumping around” that events would take in a real-life terrorist attack. Well-written and tight, Blood Brothers is a page-turner. Pope creates interesting characters while being able to conceive of different worlds that each character, major and minor, inhabits. Especially thought-provoking is his ...more

"...two former enemies, who are now... not friends, but, perhaps, brothers, of a sort'.
An excellent book for boys of all ages. It has everything in much detail: guns, plains, surveillance, explosions, knife play. It has a lot of strategic and militaristic art detail that makes it all so interesting for men.
Terrorists and terrorism, Special Forces and Gay Pride Parade set on the luxury arena of London town.
A very interesting and detailed account of what happens when things go wrong, very wrong

Author Nick Pope was as a former MOD employee in a great position to have realistic background for this book.
I found it a genuine can’t put it down book ,with bang up to date issues providing a scary scene
I imagine there were some difficult topics to be written in, and I think they were well handled
Not having read this author before I will defiantly look out for more from him
Thanks to Thistle publishing for the chance to read this

Wow, couldn't put this book down! It is a dark book given that it deals with radical terrorism as the main theme and scary as the many scenarios that play out in the plot are, it's also hugely compelling. A very fast paced read that jumps from incident to incident and gathers pace and tension with each one. Highly recommended!

Blood brothers

This book was very well written. There was excitement and although at times a little dull but that is necessary. The only thing I did not like was the way in which the book ended. If there had been a fallow up book I would have like that but I don't think there is one.

A terrifying scenario that could be all too real. Nick Pope creates a gripping tale of good versus evil. Coordinated terrorist attacks across London have caused wide-spread panic. After a particularly gruesome attack, the number 2 bad guy decides to change sides. Can he truly help take down the leader? Can we trust him? Has he really flipped or is this part of the coordinated attacks?

This story reads like an action film. There are airplanes being shot down, guns being fired, blood everywhere.

From 1991 to 1994 he researched and investigated UFOs, alien abductions, crop circles and other strange phenomena, leading the media to call him the real Fox Mulder. His government background and his level-headed views have made him the media, film and TV industry's go-to guy when it comes to UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories. ...more
