A Brother's Price by Wen Spencer
I re read this book the other day. It is a interesting fantasy romance mystery. It's hard to actually put it in that category, but that's the best I can do. In this book the main character, Jerin, has to deal with the pressure of having to be married off so that the family will have enough money to do other things. The surprise is that Jerin is a man. In this world, the roles are switched. Woman are dominant because there are so few males. Males are considered property and sold or traded with other families to get a husband for their family. The families are huge, with a man having to marry 10-30 women from the same family. lol. Imagine how long a month would be for one of those women having to wait her turn... All in all a very enjoyable book. It's quite mind boggeling to think about, but it makes for a very interesting story. 5/5 Stars!
