Overview

Blood Brothers by Michael Schiefelbein

Juan Ramón Fuertes was only seven years old when he witnessed his parents’ brutal murder by their business partner, Martin Esteban, in a deal gone awry. He spent the next fifteen years enduring brutal Spanish orphanages, studying Esteban, nursing his hatred, and vowing to avenge his slaughtered parents. When he sees a newspaper article about Esteban’s son, the pious but troubled Brother Bernardo, Juan Ramón’s perfect plan coalesces: he’ll use Bernardo as the instrument for his revenge.

Bernardo thought he’d finally conquered his sinful desires, just in time to ensure his ordination. One look at the newest addition to the monastery, however, shakes his conviction. Juan Ramón is everything Bernardo has wanted: compassionate, supportive, and understanding. To be with him threatens his dreams of becoming a priest, but those dreams seem empty without Juan Ramón.

Juan Ramón’s scheme has one flaw. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and the feelings he has for Bernardo are anything but. Shaping Bernardo into the perfect vessel for revenge isn’t so easy when he sees how tortured delicate Bernardo becomes. Will love soften Juan Ramón’s resolve, or will he sacrifice the one thing he didn’t know he wanted to achieve his long-awaited revenge?

What makes this suspense novel good? Schiefelbein has created, in a very readable style, two haunting and memorable characters: the hard-focused, reserved Juan Ramon, who has devoted his life to a plan for self-styled justice, and the vulnerable and sensitive Bernardo, whose need for love causes him to risk everything he holds sacred. What makes this novel great? You'll see something of yourself in either Juan Ramon or Bernardo, which is an unexpected jolt. Outwardly these are simple men who lead simple lives. But beneath that facade they struggle with issues of love, faith, ambition, commitment, revenge and betrayal. As in life, none of these are resolved in nice, neat little packages. I look forward to "Blood Brothers, II", because their saga begs for continuance.
