This is a short story but it is very well built and plotted, so much that it gives you the idea to be longer. At the beginning of the book a wealthy man, Tamasin, presents himself and his bed slaves to the readers. Tamasin is a merchant of some sort, probably no more in the primis of his adult age, he has a wife and three sons, so he has fulfilled his "social" duties and now he can enjoy some privileges of his own; every years he spent the hot months in his villa with some servants and above all ...more

In this short historical, Tamasin is a wealthy property owner and is spending time at his seaside estate in the company of three young bed-slaves. As one catamite is the custom, Tamasin’s three is beyond expected and thus he must leave them all behind when he ventures to rejoin his wife and children soon.

An Evocative Tale

This short story is well-written and evocative, bringing to mind an ancient Greek island as the setting. The descriptions are rich and colorful. Yes, there is eroticism, but it also has the feel of an instructive fable. There is a master and three bed-slaves, then disaster strikes. Which of the boys will remain faithful to his master?

It was not a bad story but it was a short parable on which lover to trust. The plot is about a master and his slaves, who are competing for the position of his favorite, well two are competing the third one is content with his place. It's this content to be used as a pleasure slave which makes me dislike the book(besides the wife and the children). There is no really great building romance, it's more about which slave provide the most gratification for the master and which one stays with him.

When summary said about love my expectation built up to it. But through the story I can't see any love, just one narcissistic, middle-aged man whining about his lack of love life which the story didn't shown me why he deserved it. It's an erotic story with nothing really called plot.

It's quite a fantastic piece.
I rather liked the atmosphere and overall tone, although I take issue with some of the tropes.
