Eromenos by Melanie McDonald, reviewed by BL Kennedy
Seriously Good Books
I was born in Bithynia, in the town of Claudiopolis, during the reign of Trajan, and named Parthenos Antinous.
This books is the first novel from a new press called Seriously Good Books that specializes in historic fiction, and you can imagine my surprise in not only getting the book, but amazed at how well written it is. This is just a beautifully executed novel by a young writer, who, it is my prediction, you will be hearing a hell of a lot more from, and I strongly urge that you hunt down and buy this book. I am not joking here. This was a treat of a read, and something that I think that any lover of fine literature would really enjoy.
So if you have the cash, and trust me, in this economy, that’s always a big if. But IF you have the cash, hunt down this book either online or at your local bookstore, and snatch it up, because this is one fine read. As for the writer Melanie McDonald, I only have two words: thank you.
