The Blackwood brothers from New Orleans are about to find out. Youngest brother Will dreams of escaping his mundane life as an apprentice contractor. Caleb is a bartender whose charm and good looks see him through life. Val, the eldest, is a high-powered attorney who hides the fact that he can perform parlor tricks with his mind.
The brothers’ lives are changed forever when they receive a belated inheritance from their father: a staff with a mysterious stone on top, a pair of rogue’s bracers, and a sword that Will can barely lift. Searching for an explanation, it is not until a strange key whisks the brothers across time and space, into a terrifying version of New Orleans ruled by wizards, that the brothers accept the truth and undergo a perilous journey home. With the help of an alluring but deadly adventuress, they must break into the keep of a sorcerer known for his love of diabolical games, find a trio of enchanted talismans, and somehow defeat an evil wizard who can raise legions of the undead to do his bidding.
It seems the brothers have found their adventure. But will they live to tell the tale?
The Brothers Three by Layton Green
I am a big epic fantasy fan. Layton Green has produced a visually stunning, engaging read for someone just like me.
The Blackwood brothers are tricked into opening a portal into another world where these contemporary brothers face horrors only written in the dreams and the imaginations of the best story tellers.
Green provides a great set of characters, a skillfully crafted plot and a marvelous book escape that every fantasy reader desires.
I received this copy of The Brothers Three from Layton Green. This is my honest and voluntary review.
