Brotheren Rouged is a timeless piece of literature that will resonate for years to come, regardless of whether your personal challenges are those shared by the characters in the book or ones unique to you, Semaje outlines the strength, courage and brotherhood needed to see them through.
Semaje from start to finish pulls readers into a brotherhood with such detail that the reader not only shares the pain, anguish and joy of “the pack” but often time makes the reader feel like the fifth member of “the pack.” Through an astounding use of detail in key moments the reader has no choice but to live in that moment with the character and mentally share and decide if he/she would support or oppose the characters actions in that moment - a skill not all authors accomplish but one that Semaje showcases throughout his debut novel.
Semaje flows seamlessly between moments of joy, pain and sorrow that mirrors the ebbs and flows of real life, making the words and storylines on the page both believable and entertaining.
This book was a joy to read and one that will have you eagerly anticipating Semaje’s next novel to find out what he has in store for such amazing characters.
What can I say ! This book was AMAZING! It really allowed me to get my love back for reading! The story line is well thought out and it is VERY cohesive. TURN THIS INTO A NETFLIX FILM !!

I absolutely loved this book!!! Reading this book touched on real life issues, which are going on as of now. I’m going to read it again! It’s like watching a good movie over and over again. “Brotheren Rouged” is a MUST READ!
This was a great read! Not only was it's story line about brotherhood, but it covered so much more that the world relates to, regarding the struggles of grief, influences, hardships and trust. The author did a great job in pulling the friendships of men together emotionally, which was great to see from African American men.
What can I say. After reading the first couple of chapters I knew SemajE would have me on a roller coaster of emotions. And that he did. I read the book in ONE day because I could not put it down and was excited to see what happened next. And let me say he did not disappoint. Brothern Rouged shared with us all the bond that true brothers share. Through thick and thin, good or bad. READ THE BOOK. You will not be disappointed. I could go on, but I need you to purchase and see what the hype is all about. Great read from a first time author.
Great read!....This book (Brotheren Rouged)was masterfully written with complex characters and jaw- dropping scenes!. It will keep readers turning the pages. This is definitely a book I would recommend!.. Dont sleep on Semaj...This book. (Brotheren Rouged) will keep you woke!
A descriptive story about the lives of four Africian American men with a dream to make a difference in their lives that I can relate to. This book was a page turner and I'm looking forward to book two. Great Job SemajE!
This was a story that has you hooked from its opening pages. It is a well crafted coming of age story of a group of friends that takes you on a roller coaster through a fictional plotline that pulls at the heart strings every page. Through one of these stories you will find that you have been there and can relate. If you are looking for a great bit of material to read, look no further.

"A room without books is like a body without a soul." This book written by a strong, confident, brilliant, and power author James Smith, is one that I would read every day of every year. I give this book 5/5 stars. The imagery and meaning is evident from beginning to end. I learned tons of new things reading this particular book and I would recommend it to any open-minded avid reader.“
