As a child, Elias Chacour lived in a small Palestinian village in Galilee. When tens of thousands of Palestinians were killed and nearly one million forced into refugee camps in 1948, Elias began a long struggle with how to respond. In Blood Brothers, he blends his riveting life story with historical research to reveal a little-known side of the Arab-Israeli conflict, touching on questions such as: What behind-the-scenes politics touched off the turmoil in the Middle East?

The last thing FBI agent Will Brody remembers is the explosion - a thousand shards of glass surfing a lethal shock wave. He wakes without a scratch. The building is in ruins. His team is gone. Outside, Chicago is dark. Cars lie abandoned. No planes cross the sky. He's relieved to spot other people - until he sees they're carrying machetes.

Story line developed fairly quickly which helped keep interest. Flow seemed a bit choppy but didn't distract from the plot to much. Pace was ok. I think the ending was a bit vague considering detail provided earlier during reading.

Interesting, though far fetched, story of a female smithy in medieval England & France. Main character is quite strong in many ways yet weak in the main theme with her protagonist. I thought the tale could have been sharper if shortened. Generally the middle of the story lagged and then the ending seemed abbreviated.
