Review - Dancing Phaedra
In the time of Julius Cesar, Antyllus is a young slave working in one of Rome’s grotty whorehouses. Having been raised in the brothel, it’s the only life he has ever known, and yet he knows that he is capable of being more than a sexual plaything. He has developed a passion for dance, and even though he has had no formal training, his natural ability is obvious to the rich Senator Gabinius, who encounters Antyllus at a dinner party where the slave boys have been brought to entertain the guests.

Review - Gaius and Achilles
This review was written for, and first appeared, at Speak Its Name. It’s not often anymore that a book catches me completely by surprise, taking turns that you just don’t expect an historical romance to take. “Gaius and Achilles” surprised me, and I don’t mind saying right up front it was quite a pleasant surprise. We’re first briefly introduced to Achilles and Hippothous, two aristocratic Greek youths of Paphos, on the island of Crete.
