    "This novel was very boring. It felt like I was reading a script from the Bad Girls Club."

    "Brethren is a great book, but it is set in 1667 Jamaica whereas I prefer books set in a dystopic future . I enjoyed the romantic struggles, but the setting did not appeal to me. I would not recommend if you are looking for dystopic thrillers."

    "This is a book about gay pirates. What's not to like!? It can be slow at times, but W.A Hoffman does a great job bringing to life a complex and detailed plot with fantastic character development."

    "I think many gay historical fiction books loves sailing and boats or ships. It is hard to find a decent historical gay romance or fiction books. If you are interested in those genres, you should look at Brethren but keep your expectations low. At the end, it is just a romance book, nothing special."

    "If you are looking for the best gay historical romance book, you should consider 1: Brethren because it fits just what you are looking for. It is the first novel of four that explores a relationship between two men set in Jamaica and it shows a crazy adventure of romance and pirates. I definitely enjoyed this book for its originality. "

    "Love triangles are complex, and gay love triangles are even more so. The novel 1: Brethren is the most compelling and best novels with gay love triangles. The book is very romantantic and enchanting, yet at the same time full of love and desire."

    "One of the best gay romance novels in my opinion is Brethren by W.A. Hoffman. It is beautifully written and the author makes you feel as if you were there among all of the characters in the novel. This book does more than most in that it explores the many facets of being a human and dares to try to let the reader have a look into the lives of the complicated characters."

    "Gonna be honest, this was a very unique book to say the least, but you will be entertained. The book is a gay novel, so do not be surprised if you find this out while reading. Entertaining, and would recommend!"

    "If you're looking for an interesting gay novel for young adults, Brethren is the perfect book. It's a book about a pirate adventure and about two sailors who fall for each other. It's a really good read!"

    "This is a gay romance novel but it's not paranormal. Not good if you're looking for something about aliens or ghost. Awesome book though, especially if you like gay lead characters. "

    "This novel has a very cliche'd name, not really many good points in my book except the historical fiction aspect of it. I love stories that take me somewhere else."

    "Brethren is a great book for someone that is looking for a novel that is all about gay characters. I definitely enjoyed reading this, although I myself am not gay. I think this suits the topic perfectly."

    "This was an okay story, just not too exciting. The writing wasn't the best in the world, either. Serviceable."

    "I first read Brethren when I was stationed in Italy back in '07. I used to frequent a small pizzeria, or whatever those Italians call it, where I would eat the most delicious calzones. It was there I met Clozy Turk, a refined gentleman whom I am to understand had some trouble on a horse ranch that is not to be spoken of. He lent me his copy of this, and I believe the message was clear immediately, and thereafter I spent no more lonely nights in the "Boot of Europe". Even if you're not an English lord, I believe there is much you can come away with from this splendid little romance."

    "I found this a rollicking read. It is a gay love story with action (and I don't just mean sex) set in the Caribbean in the 17th century, with pirates and lords and exiles. If you like historical novels, and gay romance, then is a good choice. I think I'll read the rest of the series. There is a lot of potential here."

    "I wanted to expand my mind with some reading. I decided to look into gay books, and found this one. It was a very interesting read. If you're looking to explore gay literature, this is as good a starting point as any."
