Two Brothers Book Review




Two Brothers: Origin (A Ramtalan Trilogy)

Genre: YA

What teenage boy doesn’t want to fit in and have friends? That’s what Argus Dachel, 17, wants more than anything, but because he’s half alien, and a New Breed, that’s not as easy as it seems. And it sure doesn’t help that he and his brother, Tai, are being pursued by a secret government agency. To top it off, now in their senior year at public high school, both boys risk exposure when Argus uses his extraordinary strength to defend himself against the school bully, falls for 16 year-old Lola and then learns that New Breeds are set for extermination by another group of hostile aliens. As government agent Max Jackson gets close to discovering the brothers’ identity and the hostile alien forces close in, what chance do Argus and Tai have of survival?

My Thoughts
This was my first extra-terrestrial book. I've never believed in aliens and I've never been particularly interested in them. But... That's was only until I read the promo for this book. I was looking for something a little different and this fit the bill. Boy am I glad I read it! The author did an incredible job of putting you right in the middle of the story. I felt like I could feel the desert heat on my skin, the first love butterflies in my belly and the brotherly love between the twins. Being a twenty-something mom, I didn't fall in love with the brothers in a teenage puppy love sense (although I can see how the girlies can). But I definitely fell for them in an overprotective Auntie way. In this book you will go on an extreme adventure with two all American teenage boys as they discover their normal lives don't exactly match the normal lives of their peers. They have been raised by their aunt, (who totally reminds me of Jenna Elfman for some reason). They deal with bullies, and science tests, and first love jitters like everyone else. Only after being homeschooled until senior year, they assume everyone else has special abilities, like super strength too. They get a crash course in being extra-terrestrial just in time for an AURA agent to start snooping around. There is plenty of love and drama and excitement. The worst part about this book is having to wait for the next one to come out. I can't wait! I'm far too impatient. Go and get this book and fall for the Dachel family just like I did. Then come back here and tell me what you think.
I did receive an e-copy of this book for free in exchange for my review.
