5.0 out of 5 stars Historical romance with plenty of history, 27 Jun. 2009
By 
This review is from: Transgressions: An M/M Romance (Paperback)
I love my historicals to have actual history in them - and Erastes delivers that. No doubt the research was thorough, because this is a book that completely avoids the pitfalls of being nothing more "modern people in costumes telling a modern story".

People get pressed, indentured, find themselves swept away by witch crazes, religious conflicts and tossed around by outside forces in one of the more turbulent times in English history. The people are believably people of their time and place, and that alone places "Transgressions" head and shoulder above most historical romances I've read recently, and, fairly often, above many so-called historical novels I've read. While I couldn't really warm with David, there were many moments with lesser characters I completely enjoyed, such as Tobias and Hal, but my favourite was Jonathan both for the journey he takes and his temperament (and looks, I guess. :) ).

The book sweetened a short business trip for me, and helped me get through some nasty turbulences up there in the air, so thanks to the author for that. I completely enjoyed it and found it engrossing, believable and maybe a bit too short - I'd really like to know how the characters take it from where the author has left them.
