The Blood of Brothers (Sycamore Moon) (Volume 2) Paperback – November 19, 2014
From the Inside Flap
The smoking pit, as some called it, was just a stretch of dirt in the backyard of Sycamore Lodge. There was no place to sit except for the small stoop immediately next to the door, so patrons wandered in the empty space whenever they needed a moment of downtime. The smoking pit was a graveyard of customer complaints and underhanded plots, scattered cigarette butts, like headstones, the only evidence of the past.
"What the fuck do you have me involved with?" demanded Maxim, his mask of complacency torn away. Gaston and the detective stood against the back wall at a distance from the few smokers who might overhear. "Am I protecting a bunch of murderers here?"
Gaston worked his jaw, unused to this sort of antagonism, but he took Maxim seriously enough. "It wasn't us. I swear."
"You don't know who could've done this?"
Maxim looked Gaston in the eye, trying to glimpse any sign of deception. The Seventh Sons president showed nothing but weariness.
"Diego said you backed us. You released Clint. That says something, right?"
"I don't think he's involved," admitted Maxim. "But he's being an asshole with that fancy lawyer. You too, getting in my way at the clubhouse."
"That's a sensitive area," said Gaston. "It's in both our interests for some things to stay hidden."
Maxim winced at his inclusion in the motorcycle club's inner circle. Partners in crime, partners in time. Gaston was a fool if he thought the detective would be a partner in anything illegal.

Everything that I wanted more of in The Seventh Sons Finn was able to deliver in The Blood of Brothers. More action, more intensity, more interesting characters. While the first book was focused on introducing us to Finn’s brand of werewolves, book 2 was able to really explore their pack lives and social dynamics.
Starting out strong with a unusual murder investigation, that actually made me think Finn was going to introduce another paranormal creature. Alas he didn’t be he fooled me again! The leads detective Dwyer down the whodunnit road. Uncovering a rivalry between two packs of werewolves. Throw in an FBI investigator (similar to Assistant U.S. Attorney Lincoln James Potter in my mind) to the party and basically you have season 4 of one of the best TV shows, ever. But with werewolves.
This was a great second book in a series that I see sticking around for a while. This did not suffer one bit from sequel syndrome at all. The best part about this series is that there are no expectations because it does not let what you expect to get from a werewolf story interfere in anyway. In fact I could see some wanting more “typical” blood and guts that one would expect from a werewolf war. However, the paranormal aspect is just icing on the cake of a solid modern detective story with plenty of twists, turns and surprises.
This time around I knew what I was going to get with Jason Jewett’s performance and overall was, in my opinion, a more solid showing for his vocal skills. Creating great characterizations, my favorite is still Maxim Dwyer, raspy almost evil sounding. Switching from that to Diego, Mexican accent, with ease.
Even though he is a relative newcomer to audiobooks, I am going to keep an eye out for more from Jewett.

What would you do if faced with something like that? It's definitely a great start down the road towards the Seventh Sons and the small community of Sanctuary and Domino Finn's Sycamore Moon Novels..
The storyline was well thought out, the characters detailed enough for you around them, and especially to let you get to know what drives them. The events happen at an excellent pace that keeps you reading. The sentence structure with a lack of typos, or minimal enough so they don't register in your brain, keeps you completely enthralled, turning page after page as the story unfolds. Then before you realize it, you've reached the end of the last book. I just love when that happens, it's a sure sign of excellent writing.
The first two end with an opening for a possible "next" installment in the series, but more importantly for those like myself that extremely dislike cliffhangers, are left with enough closure and feeling satisfied. I would definitely recommend this series to those readers out there who enjoy a break from reality every now and then.
NOTE: All Three books in this series are currently on sale for only .99¢ each! Not sure if it's for a fourth of July weekend sale or a few days after as well, either way be sure to grab them fast before the price goes back to the normal price. If you don't enjoy them as much as I did, your only out $2.97 which when you think about it, is less than the normal cost for just one of these great books.
Domino Finn has this new side of the paranormal that I've never seen before. It is a detective story-line dealing with the paranormal from the human side of things. That is why his books are on the top of my list of, I love this series. And yes please keep it coming!
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes the author keeps you on edge from beginning to end. He main character is a detective that understands that keeping an eye on the wolf biking gang is a must. He also understands that he has to protect the people and the law. He is consistently finding himself walking that middle line in the road.
Which character – as performed by Jason Jewett – was your favorite?
Book 2 is not centered around Detective Maxim Dwyer as book 1 was but Maxim is also my favorite. I can't help but feel he is the true hero in the story-line no matter what anyone else does right or wrong. I like that thin line that he walks for the paranormal and the normal people. Protecting us all from those things we can't protect ourselves from.
Jason Jewett really surprised me this time. When he added the new voices to this story line. American Indians, Mexican accents, and American English bikers. I think he has an amazing talent. His voice really adds that extra drama to the story-line.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No it too long for that but that is nice too. You are entertained for more than a day for an addictive story well written.
Any additional comments?
Just that I really enjoy getting lost into well written story's. I'm always looking for something new and different and Domino Finn fills that need for new and different.
