I remember noting this error. I suspect some typesetter made a "correction" from "her brother Larak and Afra" to "brothers" thinking that that was grammatically correct - not realizing that indeed it should be plural as Afra was her husband not brother! Anne can talk you an earful about typesetters who introduce errors into books no matter how carefully the galleys have been read.
