The Book Quadrant: Brutus by. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with another review.

 

Brutus by. Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

 

Disclaimer: This review is based on thoughts and opinions of the lead writer of this blog. Please respect her thoughts and opinions on this book!

 

Last time on Immortal Matchmakers, we saw our hero Brutus heading towards the Amazon to find a tribe of Amazons that were founded by Semile in order to bring back to his men so they can avoid the apocalypse! Zack, God of Temptation, promised Minkie, the invisible unicorn, that he would be bound to her and do what she wants and gets taken away to a private place in order to bring back his long lost love, Tula.

 

Now in this installment, Brutus is now captured by the Amazons and used as their sex slave at first but when the beautiful Fina comes into his view he gets hypnotized. He finds out not only she is a princess but a well-educated one because she was sent off to university to bring back knowledge to her village to make their lives better but her queen mother has held that back by bringing more tyranny on the tribe because of what Semile had told them many centuries ago.

 

Fina has been raised to be a warrior until she has been sent off to be educated in the real world and wanted to make the tribe’s life better by showing what she has learned and be able to live more civil lives instead of the ancient ways that her mother kept on them. She even hoped to bring men to the village until Brutus appears and her heart starts to beat for him. Despite being strong and keeping some of the traditions her falling for Brutus shows that she is deprived of something for so long that it makes her insides ache and hard to resist his good looks until she meets the Mistress of Bees. She wonders is he still loving her or is she the truly the one for him?

 

While Zack is in a cave with Mikie trying to figure out how to get Tula back since she still has Tula’s body inside of her. Even though the evil unicorn cannot reveal the secrets in getting Tula’s spirit back into her body he figures out how to save the world from its own annihilation and that is what he was sent to Earth to do and that is match making.

 

Thoughts: After reading this book I felt that it was great to have that old Mimi Jean comedy again especially in this series. I liked how Brutus had his interactions with Fina and her tribe throughout the book since he had to basically be used for his…you know…sorry guys! Kind of keeping it as family friendly as possible here! It did make me have the George Takai “Oh my!” moments while reading this book. His interactions with Fina were pretty on point since in the last one he did get his heartbroken by Kelol after all since she did end up with a florist. I wasn’t expecting her to save Brutus though since Bees and Brutus have been friends for a long time and it was cute how she was pushing him towards Fina which makes sense in friends helping others to move on if they get their heartbroken like in most rom coms! It was great to see Zack get to play another big role in this book since he is trying to save the world after all with love and his comedic moments were pretty entertaining, especially when we get to see more mythical creatures take the stage alongside the other gods that haven’t been paired up with anyone yet. Like with most pantheons of course there is a thunder one in this set too.

 

I do have to say though with the ending it was unexpected though! I feel that Mimi should keep going until I read the last few pages where we could see more by next year. I don’t want to give too much away in what happens but we do get to see a bit of mystery with what takes place, heck even now Tula is going to take the stage in main character status, which reminds me! Ever since I read book one, which I need to read two and three of course, she was just so innocent and cute, even pure but by this book she definitely became more of a stronger person and a hard ass. I guess being a spirit since Forgetty finally made her realize that she needs to live more once she becomes whole again and heck Zack was surprised when she started having a Sailor’s mouth in this book. I guess going from the dresses that you tend to see older women wear and having your hair in a bun turns you into something different later on. I can’t wait to see what happens to her in the next installment depending on how it’s written.

 

Rating: Five Shooting Star Pawprints out of Five! Even though this book kind of felt like a nice end but knowing with Mimi’s writing it doesn’t feel like it’s the end. I feel that this series has been one of Mimi’s best alongside the Accidentally Yours Series and Oh Hell No! Because the comedy is well balanced and I love the interactions between the characters, especially our god characters with different humans, demigods, and other fantastical creatures. I can’t wait to see what else Mimi has in store for any of her other books.

 

Before I go, I would like to mention this and that is while reading this book I ended up losing a very close friend. If you guys have noticed how our YouTube videos have changed for a little while is because of our video Editor and best friend, Rayne. On August 27th, he went into a surgery to help him transition from female to male and well due to complications after coming home the next day he passed away after a heart attack hit him. His husband, Tobi, another awesome friend of ours and has been on the team too is more devastated as much and even more. He has been raising money to help with funeral costs.

 

I do want to say is that Rayne has been an amazing person and even though he had so much ahead of him that it felt it shouldn’t have been cut off so soon especially when he just started school for his film degree since he loved doing film and photography related things since high school. Also, he did start his own photography business which he was going to be our photographer during Omni Fandom Expo this year but due to the pandemic the convention had to be pushed back to next year and he was going to move with Tobi back to Pennsylvania and would help us with events up there by giving us content from Northern events. Unfortunately, the death happened and not sure what will happen next for us. I know we will still go to Ranger Stop Pop next year since we got word that it got switched to a new location and had to switch our reservation to there and will be talking about the event around November or December for you guys. But do want to say this before I go! It’s going to be hard without Rayne because he has been a very important person in our lives, especially here with Nerdy Shique Universe. He has given us advice and has helped with editing too. No matter what we are still a team despite what happened to him and of course we will keep his spirit alive by keeping the website, YouTube, and anything else alive because this is not the end. He has been there even when I was told to end this blog back in November after RangerStop, but I said no! Someone outside said it don’t worry. So, rest in peace Rayne. You will still be in our hearts and despite your star is gone from the Nerd Universe, but Aquarius will keep shining. Rest in Peace my prince!
