This second book of the five-part Dominus series picks up exactly where the first installment left of: with the death of Gaius' old friend, and sometimes lover, Lucius. The mystery of who killed Lucius, and why, is a major theme of this book, although the relationship between Gaius and Allerix remains the core of the story. Allerix seems resigned to his fate as Gaius' slave, although he still plots his revenge against the Roman emperor, and Dominus takes steps to protect his slave's true identity, a secret that could mean death for both of them if it becomes known. Both men have motives for what they do, but Gaius and Allerix are both struggling against their hearts' feeling that the other means more to them than they should.

<p>The story of Hadiran and Antinous has provided great fodder for gay historical romance. After all, there are few male historical figures that we know had sexual relationships. Even Alexander and Hephastion may have enjoyed a purely platonic affair. But that Antinous was Hadrian's sexual partner there can be little doubt. The many memorials left by Hadrian to Antinous seems to suggest there
