Brotherhood of the Lion by Roger Wellington Nason is a story about Remi and Andre, two disfigured twin boys raised in the Abbey of Cluny in the 11th century. The twins are mistreated and discriminated against by some monks at the abbey and the townsfolk. One day, the twins stumble upon a hidden room in the abbey that tests their belief in magic and bestows supernatural abilities on them. They regain their form and are granted whatever they wish. They are given rules by Lady Agnes, a mysterious being who resides in the hidden room, to use their powers for good and help the poor and vulnerable. No one in the town recognizes them. When the twins discover a plot to overthrow and kill Abbot Odilo, the head monk of the Abbey, the twins form an order called the Brotherhood of the Lion to stop the evildoers from seizing power.

Brotherhood of the Lion will bring you magic, adventure, and action. I could not put this book down because the story was intriguing and the characters were awesome. Remi and Andre are identical twins, but their personalities are completely different. Remi is calmer and believes in the power of magic more than his brother Andre, who is cunning and mischievous. Andre’s plans were hilarious, but they helped to escape dire situations. The main villain is also well-defined. He is sinister and resourceful. The suspense of Andre and Remi’s secret being discovered is palpable throughout. The tale of these seemingly unworthy children saving an entire town just goes to show that the least among us can be the greatest. I loved reading this book and cannot wait to read more by Roger Wellington Nason. A great story.
