Not

all things that glitter are made of gold.

My

name is Paul Kian McKinnon. I grew up with upper class, wealthy parents who had

successful jobs, the best education money could buy, friends in all the most

popular circles, and of course ideal grades. My good fortune spilled over into

my adult life. To most people my life is what you would call privileged. At

first glance you would think I have everything together, healthy bank account,

beautiful house, good job, and great friends. Everything is perfect, until… The

door to the outside world closes.

At

home everything falls apart. In this place, I am my most vulnerable. Every

night I try silence my inner demons in a sea of sleeping pills and alcohol, but

sometimes that isn’t enough. Sometimes it gets to be too much and I need to do

more than simply just dull the anxiety, pain, and the all-encompassing

numbness. Yes, I know it’s not healthy, but it’s all I have… Well that and my

brothers, the Misfits as we are called.

We

were all brought together thanks to the kindness of Jethro-Elijah Shepard.

Through his compassionate heart and stern beliefs, we’ve grown up together into

strong, loyal, friends. We’ve celebrated each other’s wins, as well as

comforting each other in our loses. Those men have been more of a family to me

than my own flesh and blood, and yet I still can’t bring myself to share the

darkest parts of me. They won’t understand because they see me just as the rest

of the world does… Perfect.

What

would happen if I dropped the mask and let it splinter like the pieces of my

broken soul?

Would

they save me?

The

better question is… Do I want to save myself, or do I just want to fade away

into the abyss of pain and suffering?

Am

I ready to peel away the beautiful covering and let them look at the ugliness

underneath?

In

order to find out you’ll have to read my story, and trust me when I say… it

won’t be for the faint of heart.

(This

is the Second book in the Brotherhood of Misfits series. It can be a stand

alone BUT to full get to know the characters it is best to read Book One.)

When
I came across the “Brotherhood of Misfits” series by Khai L. Bayne, I
was originally only requested to read Book 2 “Paul” – but I had somehow
the feeling that would not be a good Idea so I requested to read also
the first book “Roc” – which was the right decision. My review here is
equally valid for both books.

You might be able to read them as
standalones but the story is very complex and the relationships between
the characters are not easy to handle. So I felt that you will need the
full knowledge on everything to keep up with this fast paced novel. The
leading characters are dark and gritty at their best times and
mysterious bordering (looking for the right word) crazy? at their worst.
But somehow this intense plotline works out.

Sometimes during
reading you were wondering where the story is heading as there are
several threads woven into a complex construct. And I must admit at
times I lost focus on the main character of the book as the story
equally enfolds for several characters. And while one seems to be the
lead for the book, the others still have a lot to contribute.

You
can already feel the next stories coming up with big question marks.
Usually that happens on the sidelines of the original story but not so
with this plot – here the sidelines happen in-between the story focus.
There were a lot of “firsts” for me within the storyline of these books
and I would have to spoiler too much to explain my mixed up feelings.

For
example the fact alone, that it was a GUY that was in the position that
Paul was in – was a first for me. Parts of the story are not pretty or
for the faint of heart. So be warned there are no unicorns or Hearts
drawn around the Book Cover for a reason.

I am not sure if I
could say this would be a favorite book of mine – The jury is still out
on that vote as this complex story is not at its end. Roc and Paul may
have told their parts so far but this is neither a HEA in the
conventional way nor a cliffhanger by all means.

And I feel this
is a series you need to read all the books of to come to a vote. But I
can say for sure that it has been a long time since I read such an
confusing and complex plot.
