    About "Clodia Metelli"

      • Clodia Metelli

        I write historical and fantasy fiction, usually featuring gay protagonists, sometimes with a strong romance theme, sometimes not Most of my historical fiction is set in the ancient Greco Roman period, which I studied for many years and which remains a passion with me reading Suetonius can have a terribly corrupting effect on a young mind I aim to offer an alternative, internalised window on Greco Roman society, the emotional and cultural lives of courtesans and poets rather than the deeds of gladiators and victorious generals An elegiac rather than epic perspective My fantasy fiction so far includes both urban vampire fiction set in contemporary London and high fantasy, set in the decaying ancient civilisation of Laurentium.

    1. Ancient Rome BDSM m/m romance -- seems like my kind of thing, right? Achilles is a Greek youth who was tragically captured by pirates and ends up owned by Gaius, and Gaius introduces him to the various pleasures of the flesh even as Achilles angsts about being a slave and about whether his (kind of an asshole) boyfriend Hippothous, also captured by slavers, is still alive.The author has a PhD in classics and it shows. I don't mean it's dry or boring writing -- although I have to admit I skimmed [...]


    2. The story is standard master and slave relationship. What makes it a bit different is that the slave used to be a noble Greek who is educated in poetry, music, etc. And he has a boyfriend since they both were young. Gaius is a Roman noble. Achilles is a Greek noble from Cyprus. When Achilles and his long-term boyfriend (a fellow young Greek Noble by the name of Hippothous) were on the way to Athens for a Greek Tournament, they were captured by pirates and were sold as slaves to the Romans. They [...]


    3. This review was written for, and first appeared, at Speak Its NameIt’s not often anymore that a book catches me completely by surprise, taking turns that you just don’t expect an historical romance to take. "Gaius and Achilles" surprised me, and I don’t mind saying right up front it was quite a pleasant surprise.We’re first briefly introduced to Achilles and Hippothous, two aristocratic Greek youths of Paphos, on the island of Crete. The two young friends consider themselves lovers, alth [...]


    4. There's so much about this story to love, but it's the setting that won me over. The author knows exactly what details to include to make the Roman world, and the characters who inhabit it, spring to life.Achilles and his lover Hippothous are aristocratic young men from Greece whose ship is attacked by pirates. They're sold into slavery to different Roman masters, with each dreading that he'll never see the other again. After suffering harrowing abuse, Achilles ends up the property of Gaius, a w [...]


    5. Achilles, an elite young man from Paphos, is captured by pirates on his way to the Pythian games, then sold into slavery in Italy. His new master, Gaius, who is friends with notable 1st c. figures like Clodia and Catullus, turns out to be not exactly what he expected as he learns to embrace submission in the bedroom (but not exactly anywhere else, sort of).First: the author definitely does know about Rome, and this really felt like a book about Rome as I know it, not the Rome of most books/movie [...]


    6. The best part about this book (aside from the fact that the author clearly knew what they were doing with late republic Roman culture) was Catullus and Clodia showing up and being that couple that always fights in public.


    7. It took me a while to get into this story, but it was a pleasant enough tale. The relationship between Gaius and Achilles was sweet, and the subplot a nice diversion. The BDSM was a little too preachy although it was nice to see the insistence on, and respect for, safe-words as well as the concern expressed by each participant for the other. However the dialogue seemed to be far too modern for the era in which it was set; for example, I thought the 'f' word only came into use in the 1400's and w [...]


    8. Downloaded the sample from Smashwords.Decided it wasn't for me as I wasn't in the mood for a historical novel with a BDSM theme set in Ancient Rome. Also, the overuse of commas was driving me slightly mad.That said, it's obvious the author knows her period. Just wasn't for me.
