[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with THE FRATERNITY OF THE STONE.]--Two different books have similar plots--both offer excellent suspense and are well delivered. In THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE, listeners follow the lives of two orphans, Chris and Saul, through their "adoptions" into the intriguing world of their "father," Eliot. In THE FRATERNITY OF THE STONE, Morrell details the life an agent, Drew, who attempts to leave the agency by faking his death and entering a monastery. In both works the full cast delivers edge-of-your-seat suspense. Both thrillers offer plots that depart from the usual, and the narrators maintain the titles' fast pace and quickly developing characters. Either of these titles, by the author of the first Rambo novel, could easily translate into a big screen offering. R.B.T. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
