    Incredible Historical Epic

    The first in a projected trilogy, Brethren is historical fiction at it's FINEST. A rich epic set in the Caribbean in the late 1600's, this is the story of the roguish William Marsdale. Readers will be hooked from the first page. Will left home to escape an abusive relationship, and to see the world. He becomes an accomplished swordsman and duelist, as well as a seasoned traveller. When he finally returns home to England, he is sent by his father to Jamaica to manage a new sugar plantation. Of course, he promptly puts someone in charge of it and joins a buccaneer crew! Buccaneer's have some 'questionable' traditions, such at Matelotage. It is a partnership between two men to support each other in battle, share responsibilities and to provide company. These relationships were often sexual, but not always. Will unintentionally finds himself with a matelot. The bitter-sweet love that develops between he and Gaston is believable and has great potential 'which is explored in Volume 2'. The cast of supporting characters are all fully developed and help propel the storyline as well as provide humor. Hoffman has done a lot of research into the time period and subject matter and it shows. The dialog and language is representative of the time, and extremely well written. Her descriptions of the world and people are detailed without bogging a reader down. With a a lot of action, and an engrossing plot, this is a fantastic adventure story. I read this massive novel in only two days and can hardly wait for the rest of the trilogy. I can not recommend this series enough!!
