From the prologue to epilogue, The Brothers Campbell is an exciting ride through 16th century England. William and Stephan Campbell, sons of Sir Douglas, have very different views of life among the gentry. William is idealistic, and somewhat naive about the treacheries that exist within the ruling class of Edin-on-Norwich, believing there is always a peaceful solution to disagreements. Stephan is older, and more 'street smart', having experienced first-hand the injustice of the local baron. When their father is murdered, it is up to the brothers to work together to find the culprit and win justice. That is where the story really starts to fly as we watch these too very different personalities come together, and grow from each other's experience.
Ms. Coffey has drawn the characters vividly and three dimensionally. The settings are authentic, and painted so clearly that it is almost like watching a movie. The plot is quick and plausible, with a lot of action, intrigue, and romance. I find it was like an good old fashioned Errol Flynn movie, where you can't help but cheer the good guys and hiss at the villains.
This is the first book in a planned series of four, and I am definitely looking forward to the next installment.
