I almost always finish any book I start reading. Robyn Young portrays a rich cast of characters, reflecting on each side greed, ambition and yokng fanaticism, as well as courage, love and faith. Way too much info-dumping exposition, way too many flash back sort of scenes.
My profile clearly exposes my attitude towards all religions – I identify as a Secular Humanist – and try as I might, I can find no joy or entertainment from listening to or reading about the horrors that Christians and Muslims inflicted upon their own kind, and each other, and innocent secular citizens, in the name of the same God, in the times of the Audiobook – Some of these items are dispatched sooner than the others.
I found this book interesting and I may check out the next instalment in the series.
Thank you for your feedback. Write a customer review. Set in period between the Seventh and Ninth Crusades, Brethren purports to tell the story if the Crusades from both the East’s and the West’s points of view.
On the other hand, her characters were well developed and internally consistent. A script writer would improve the dialogue. I can’t say for people who are more educated in the area but if all you have taken is western civilization and read a couple of books on the crusades I think it will be enjoyable. Brethern was a good book. Why does Everard destroy the Book of the Grail once he finally gets it back? Now this, of course, is personal taste. Do you brehtren Will ever changes? I did not find it romance heavy at all.

I liked her writing style though, not as good as Cornwall, but then who is? Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers. Since the Knights Templar is a subject I know very little about, and have an interest in, this book appealed to me. Set up a giveaway.
Do you think Garin would have done the same thing? It was as if their innocence shone through and breethren their success a certainty. What do they represent to him? Why do you think Garin agrees to help Prince Edward?
May 12, Lubna rated it liked it. The West’s version is told through the tale of Will, training to follow in his father’s footsteps as a Knight in the Order vrethren the Templar, while the East’s view is depicted through the tale of Mamluk Sultan of Egypt, Baybars.
Do you believe the reasons Everard gives to Will?
Please try again later. Passage at Arms Arrows of Albion Book 2. Knights-vows of chastity, poverty and obedience Black mantle–color of human sin. The historical research done by brethten author is obvious in the story and she should be given credit for doing a great job on it however, I just could not connect with the characters.
Crusade : Brethren Trilogy Book 2
Mohammed is his prophet. Overall very disappointing as there’s a tangible sense that this could have been so much better if the author had only cut out more of the dead wood and, well, got on with it. All in all this is a masterful debut and proof that great writing is possible from the get go!
In regard to the barbarism of the battles, I brethrenn not shocked. The story gobyn the crusades from the viewpoint of both the christians and the muslims and firmly gives understanding of both sides reasons for the wars.
Showing of reviews.
Christendom’s desperate attempts to maintain a foothold in the Holy Land against a furious Muslim jihad is embodied by Sir William Campbell, a young, idealistic Knight Templar, and the devout Baybars Bundukdari, the sultan of Egypt, determined to rid the region of Western influence.
The author appears to have done a really decent job of research and recreating the period. It is important to set a scene, and sometimes Young does this beautifully, but at others, her words do not add anything to the scene. June 23, Language: The ending gives you the feeling that you need to get to the second installment which is a sign of a good book that has a sequel. The brethhren character was too weak and the conversations between him and his other teenage friends sounded more like modern day teenagers.
