BLAKE CARVER RETURNS IN AN EXPLOSIVE NEW THRILLER

In Washington D.C., an American senator is the victim of a depraved murder. In London, a senior member of parliament is brutally slain in the tunnels beneath Whitehall. Only one thing appears to link the American and British politicians – the archaic ritual used to kill them.

As wayward intelligence operative Blake Carver hunts for the perpetrators, he discovers an ancient order of assassins thought to have been dissolved centuries ago. During an epic chase that takes him from the corridors of Washington to the wilds of South Africa and the catacombs of Rome, he finds himself caught in a shadow war that threatens to engulf the entire world.

Editorial Reviews

Book Boogie - Craig Miyamoto
“Put me on the list of those eagerly awaiting William Tyree’s follow-up novel. He had me by the short hairs with the never-ending roller coaster ride in The Fellowship. It’s Indiana Jones meets The Da Vinci Code. Exciting, intriguing, even scary.”
BestThrillers.com - Staff Editor
"Superb. One of the year's best thrillers so far."
Ragazine - Matt Hoffman
“A smart and stunning brew of shadow operatives, double agents, renegade scientists, secret societies, historical precedent and globe-hopping action that is both immensely entertaining and startlingly plausible.”
author of The Candidate - Paul Harris
"The Fellowship has enough twists and turns to keep even the most demanding thriller fan happy, but Tyree binds it all together with the sort of taut prose that keeps you turning the pages and makes it hard to put down."

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book as I'm not usual

    I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book as I'm not usually one who reads (and likes) action/thriller books, however a friend recommended it and I decided to give it a go and I am glad I did. The Fellowship is a thrilling action/adventure novel is extremely well-written, filled with exotic sites, secret societies, murder, political intrigue, a far reaching conspiracy that threatens the world at large and a brilliant protagonist who you can't help but love. The writing is lush and vivid, filled with descriptive words that perfectly paint the scenes and add an edge to the overall tone of the novel, keeping you on your toes and eagerly flipping to the next page as you read about Blake Carver’s efforts to unravel the mysterious murders and the ancient society of assassins that have nefarious goals in mind. I was completely caught up in this fast-paced novel and was completely entertained up to and beyond the very satisfying end.

    My book club, which is all women, wanted to read something different than the usual romantic, love story type of novels that women
    normally gravitate towards. We chose The Fellowship by William Tyree and I am so glad we did. The story line is very riveting, and at times educational
    too, the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat.  I was so engrossed in the story that I accidentally burned dinner one night.  Well I guess
    I shouldn't blame my absent-mindedness on the book but I was reading it when I smelled dinner burning. LOL! 

    The way the author entwines accurate historical facts throughout the entire book makes it hard to determine the line of demarcation.
    Even the biblical references were well researched and accurate.  Not only did I take notes and highlight several sections that I want to
    discuss with my book club, I also hit up Google a few times to determine if some of the passages were true history or if he had switched
    over to fiction.  You know it has to be a great read whenever a work of fiction causes you to second guess your memory of world history.
    The book is definitely worth the read. I can’t wait to discuss this one with my book club.  Great, great book, nothing like a book that keeps
    you guessing.

    At over 500 pages, "The Fellowship" might seem at first glance to be a bit of a daunting read. But by the time you've read the first chapter, you'll be so pulled in, the pages will fly by.

    The story of Blake Carver, a CIA agent investigating two murders that have ties to an ancient Vatican order, is a fast paced, edge of your seat thriller. The investigation leads Carver around the world, as the answer to the mystery spans both time and continents.Just when you think you've got it figured out, the story takes another turn. There are enough twists to keep even the most seasoned thriller fan guessing.

    Though it is the second in a series, I feel this one stands on its own very well. I have not read the first book, but there is enough backstory given that I never felt in the dark about the characters or their relationships.

    If you're a fan of political thrillers, you would do well to read "The Fellowship"

    The truth is, I see “The Fellowship” as one heck of a book. With the perfect mixture of fact and fiction it was extremely easy for me to fall in love. I am happy I have the opportunity to say all this aloud so potential readers can know that they would be getting a solid story to dive into. I certainly didn’t have time to get comfortable while I read it, the author injected enough passion, excitement and action in the story it was no difficult task for me to get hooked.

    An awesome read that packs a hefty number of plot twists and characters without getting tangled into a mess. It's brilliant, really.
    The Fellowship is not what you would expect from a traditional thriller. It brings something quite new to the table. In D.C., an American senator is the victim of a murder while in London, a senior member of Parliament is brutally killed in the tunnels beneath Whitehall. While this may seem like a coincidence, something links the murders--the archaic ritual used to kill them. Following the incidence is a gut-twisting adventure through half of the world where intelligence operative, Blake Carver, hunts for the killer(s). And no, it doesn't read like a cheesy, thriller-wannabe!
    As a stand-alone novel, this is absolutely brilliant. I'm absolutely enthralled with Tyree's prose and ability to keep me on the edge of my seat through the entire novel. From the first page, I was completely hooked.

    Tyree's novel will keep readers glued to their seats with this fast-paced thriller. The action never comes to a halt and book lovers will enjoy trying to solve the heart-thumping mystery behind it all.
