Review: Rule Four and Five (My Brother’s Keeper #2) by Adrienne Wilder

This is book two of three. All books are full-length novels and must be read in order. All books are available now. 

The My Brother's Keeper Trilogy 

The town of Gilford has a Big and Terrible secret hidden in the ground. 
Infecting those it touches. 
Exploiting their darkness. 
Consuming their souls. 
It’s hungry. It’s vile. It’s evil. 
And it wants out. 


Book Two: Rule Four and Five 

A new chance at life comes in many forms: For Jon it’s a family made with Ellis and his brother Rudy. For Ellis, it’s Jon, who has brought the outside world into the protective life he’s built for his mentally disabled brother. 

Together they have discovered true happiness and what it means to be loved. 

Then one perfect disaster after the other pushes Jon’s resolve to its limit and Ellis over the edge. If they have any chance of saving what they’ve built both men must face their deepest fears. 

It’s a test Jon thought he’d already passed and one Ellis never imagined he’d have to face. The journey will forever change who they are and redefine who they were meant to be. 

It has to happen. 
And all things happen for a reason.

“You’re smart and Jon is smart. I want to sound smart too. Then I can be smart and gay.”

I absolutely love the way Rudy views life. The childlike happiness of that man has made reading this series a true pleasure. Jon, Ellis, and Rudy are so easy to like. Once you’ve met them you want nothing but happiness and hearts and flowers for them all. They are each deserving of all the good things life has to offer. In Rudy’s case you want baseball cards, waffles, and smiles. Real life is none of those things all at once or all the time.

The Big and Terrible seems to have its sights set on this trio. Or perhaps the Big and Terrible wants the whole town of Gilford. None the less the Big and Terrible has many sinister plans. Those plans are ugly and dark and full of violence. The darkness is going to put too many strains on Ellis and Jon’s relationship. The beautiful new happy relationship will have to overcome so many obstacles. I’m enjoying the dramatics of how it is all unfolding. The dark and twisty are keeping the pages turning. The unknown of where it is all leading has me excited for the next book. I’m beyond curious how it will all play out. When you put all of this into play you have an intense read inside of an incredible book.

I have to admit. I’m not happy with these rules. Just because it has to happen doesn’t mean I have to like it. As for the reasons it has to happen… I guess I’ll find out soon enough.

Favorite quote, Ellis to Jon: “I’ve got you Jon, and I promise I won’t let you go.”
