On one level, this book was very entertaining. I found myself smiling, and, occasionally, laughing out loud. However, on the flip side, there is a dark tone. Appropriate, as you would guess, for a series featuring a demon.
The overall ambiance of Blood Brothers was very well written, much better so than in Morrigan’s Cross, the first book in the Circle Trilogy. However, unlike the Circle Trilogy (with the exception of Morrigan’s Cross, which was flat as a pancake), the characters weren’t as well developed as I’d hoped they’d be. Maybe that will come with The Hollow, book two of this trilogy (Sign of 7). I can only hope.
While I enjoyed Blood Brothers, generally speaking, I was also left with a feeling of dissatisfaction.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
