This story was beautifully written with wonderful characters that would have worked for me if not for one problem — I have no doubt that this would never happen.

I have no problem believing in the Band of Thebes, a brotherhood of male lover warriors, because that was based in a society that valued male worship. But, I ...more
Well, this book had a very interesting premise. I must say, I have never read anything like this. The two things that made it a bit harder for me to love this book were: a paranormal touch to the story - I felt like it wasn't to the point and that the story would have benefited from the removing of this part. And the second thing was that it was too short. The story was really a nice one and I would have loved to know more about those military guys and their relationship :)

Edward von Behrer’s mother was surprised when he came home from his first day of school in tears. "They didn’t teach us to read today, and you promised they would. That's the only reason I went," he wailed. His cousins still talk—decades later—about the stories he spun during his summer visits to their home in Chicago a few years later. Obviously he was fated to write. That sort of thing seems to ...more
