Remy The Brotherhood Files Book 2 Book Review

This morning, I am pleased to share my review of Remy:  The Brotherhood Files by Isaiyan Morrison.  I do enjoy paranormal stories with vampires and unique, fantasy worlds.  What did I think of Remy?

Urban Fantasy/Paranormal

About the Book
For Deamhan, revenge is the best dish of all.

In 1840s Paris, vampires aren’t just at the throats of humans. Split into two warring factions, Dorvo vampires wage war against the Deamhan, their paranormal cousins created by dark magic and who feed on the psychic energy of their human victims. In this strange new world, Remy, a bourgeoisie, is sired as a Deamhan by Julian. But the intoxicating rush of becoming a powerful psychic vampire is soon eclipsed by the presence of Ruby, a beautiful yet elusive Dorvo vampire.


Betrayed by his own, Ruby feeds his undesirable urge to have his revenge against Julian and the rest of the Deamhan. But he doesn’t know if he can trust Ruby. She may have given him his freedom, but she’s still the enemy who has vowed to vanquish the Deamhan, the very same Deamhan that betrayed him. Now it’s up to Remy to decide who to trust -- and who to destroy.

In Remy, The Brotherhood Files, author Isaiyan Morrison presents a paranormal urban fantasy about fractured relationships, mistrust, and forgiveness. Here in the City of Love, it’s anything but, as Remy’s caught between two warring sides who both want him gone. Will his desire for revenge cloud his judgment? Or will he figure out who he can trust once and for all? In this wild journey from the graveyard and through the dark alleys and cobblestoned streets of Paris, Remy is both hunter…and prey.

My Review

Morrison crafts a well rounded story in Remy.  When I initially agreed to review this novel, I wasn't aware that it was part of a series--nor that it shared the stages with the author's The Deamhan Chronicles.  I haven't read any of the other novels--but, never felt that I was missing anything as I read Remy.  The author does a wonderful job sharing the paranormal world of her characters and developing both the characters and the plot so well that the novel is a stand alone story that is difficult to put down.

Twists, turns, flawed characters and darkness surround Remy.  I enjoyed the author's writing style, as she was able to take us deep in the mind and experiences of her main character as we explored his "new" existence and discovered the perils of the new realm with him.  The author keeps just enough twists and turns and doubts flowing into the storyline to create, not only a well rounded story, but a well done character study for her series.  Readers will watch Remy grow and change--and develop along with the storyline.  Don't expect to love (or trust) many of the characters. Instead, plan to feel and understand the motivations within.

Would I recommend Remy:  The Brotherhood Files by  Isaiyan Morrison?  I read a lot of urban fantasy and vampire / paranormal novels--but, I found the world building stronger and more intriguing in Remy than in many similar works.  I loved the author's setting and world development--and I loved seeing her world through Remy rather than simply alongside him.  If you enjoy vampire stories with stronger character development and a focus on the darker elements of our real-world, human nature (deceit/betrayal) in a non-human, urban fantasy world--then I recommend Remy.  I enjoy the author's writing style and characters so much that I have added the other books of her series to my reading list.
