Head of Zeus, Head of Zeus -- an AdAstra Book
In a parsonage at the edge of the moors, a widowed rector lives with his family: three daughters and their dissolute brother, Bramwell.
Though the future will celebrate Charlotte, Emily and Anne, right now they are unknown, their genius concealed. In just a few short years they will all be dead, and it will be middle sister Emily’s chance encounter with a grievously wounded man on the moor that sets them on the path to their doom.
For there is an ancient pagan secret haunting the moors, a dark inheritance in the family bloodline and something terrible buried under an ogham-inscribed slab in the church. Not only are their lives at stake, but their very souls.
My Brother’s Keeper is an atmospheric gothic novel that mixes diabolical hatred and vengeance with the supreme power of love to conjure dark magic from the tragic fate of the Brontë sisters.

Book Review 📚
My brother's Keeper by Tim Powers - 4/5 ⭐
Well this was definitely a different take on the Bronte family. And I say that in a good way. It's either your thing or it's not, but for me it's a win.
The plot was very fast paced with situations happening that make you feel the NEED of continuing to read rather then going to bed. The fact it's a fantasy mixed in with some characters from my childhood is just awesome. It's definitely the better take on the Bronte family!
Powers has Fantastic attention to detail and goes above and beyond with description within the book, it's mind blowing how easy it was to imagine the characters and the scene he was setting. It was a wonderful read and I'd definitely recommend.
Thank you to NetGalley and Head of Zeus for allowing me to read this ARC - this is an HONEST review from my own personal opinion.
