The Brotherhood Of The Rose
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I read a scanned copy on my Nook, and the format was something awful. So I KNOW that affected my reading. Mainly because with all the jumping around the story does I had to pay over-attention to make sure which/who/what storyline I was following.
I saw this as a movie/miniseries for tv back in the early 90’s when it was a rerun. I don’t think I saw the whole thing, just enough to burn the idea of it into my mind.
The idea is awesome! 2 orphans, now brothers, superbly trained as the best of the best, carrying out covert missions for their father figure. And then, betrayal, backstabbing and the harsh reality of the intelligence gathering world.
Sadly, I wasn’t as enamoured of the carrying out of this idea in this book. It was pretty cool, but there were quite a few times where I was wondering when the action would start up. There is a sequel, The Fraternity Of The Stone and I’ll read it to give Mr. Morrell another chance.
