Part of the 90's generation Gay Youth Chronicles, it furthers the story of the Graymoor Manor's history with a tale of a contemporary young man coming to grips with his illusions and confusions. Unusual in the GYC series in having a straight protagonist, the new point of view makes total sense.

So different from the other books in the series but wonderfully done! And there was a mention, more than once, of my fave characters Brenden & Casper!

Captivating read. I enjoyed this book a great deal. The weaving of this story is intricate in its simplicity.

One thing I can say about reading his books is that Roeder has a knack for introducing a character, situation, or theme briefly that make you want to keep reading more of his books to discover it. I have to say that, I know there is a suggested reading order of his books, but I think I ...more
