I absolutely loved the first in this series "Finding Magdalena" and I had very high hopes for the second book "The Brotherhood". As expected I wasn't disappointed and I really enjoyed following Maggie's story after she and Mateo moved to Milan. The story picks up exactly where the first book ended, although there is more than enough information in this book for it to be read as a standalone novel too. I don't want to give anything away about the story, but just when you think things couldn't get any worse for Maggie - after everything she has been through - things do! However, if you have read the previous book you'll know exactly how Maggie will deal with these events and although very upsetting at times, the author has done a fantastic job of conveying only what is necessary whilst still achieving the full shocking effects. Maggie also uncovers a secret organisation called 'The Brotherhood' and discovers its sinister and shocking plans. Along with the help of Shep (her ex boyfriend's step father) and his covert team they aim to bring the organisation down. It's a dangerous mission that tests Maggie's physical and mental strength once more. This is a really fast paced story with action, tension and plenty of emotion. Once again I loved how Maggie was portrayed and her determination to free herself of an abusive relationship and bring justice to a corrupt and deadly organisation is to be commended, especially after all the ordeals she has had to endure before the age of nineteen. I do hope the author has another story penned in this series, now that Maggie is a major member of a special ops team, I can truly see more adventures in the making!! Another 5 stars for a brilliant book written by the talented author Shannon Condon.

The Brotherhood by Shannon Condon is the second book in the Magdalena series that takes place where Finding Magdalena left off. Maggie is a nineteen-year-old who has just married her fiancé, known as Mateo, when the couple finds themselves in Milan for his job and her scholarship at the Milan Conservatory. However, things are not as happy as they seem on the surface as Mateo has suffered a complete personality change since their marriage, which is putting their relationship in jeopardy. Maggie ends up enmeshed in a secret organization known as the Brotherhood, but thankfully she has Shep’s black ops team to help her bring them down. Will Maggie be able to save her relationship and take down the Brotherhood? The Brotherhood by Shannon Condon is a well written, fast paced, drama and action/adventure novel, which I absolutely loved! I did not read the first book in the Magdalena series, but that did not detract from my enjoyment or understanding of the plot or characters. The only aspect that I did not enjoy was the domestic abuse, but I felt like Shannon Condon did a good job of not making it too graphic, but I would not recommend the book to anyone triggered by domestic abuse or sexual abuse. That aside, I found the plot line to be riveting and I quickly found myself really loving and sympathizing with Maggie as I felt like I could understand her motivations and feelings. Overall, I am left with a feeling of excitement and hope for a third book in the Magdalena series.

Maggie Murano hasn't had a normal life by any means. Being orphaned as a teenager she had to grow up quickly and be very strong. The Brotherhood picks straight up from where Finding Magdelena left off, at a running pace! Married life with Mateo is not turning out as Maggie expected it to be, and she needs to turn her life around, and quickly - her life could depend upon it! A very fast-paced, action-packed story with many twists in the tale. Could easily be another book to continue Maggie's adventures.
