"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

A young boy stood out among the rest with his green eyes and friendly face helped him withstand his challenge and from that day on Eryx and him became inserapable! Axio and Eryx were the complete opposite of the other. Where Axio questioned the reasons for war Eryx was determined to be the best Spartan Warrior! Through the years Eryx was just what Axio needed to help him develop into the Spartan Warrior that he needed to become! Along the way the two found they shared more then just friendship but a love like no other! Axio felt he had so many weakness as he watched so many of his brothers die at the hands of their enemies but in truth Eryx had the biggest weakness of them all his love for Axios!
This is ABSOULETY the best story of love, friendship in the era where war was brutal and young men died at such early ages! The Story of Axio and Eryx as they journey through the trails of brutal training together, friendship that turns into a powerful love, until they reach manhood and into many wars as Spartan warriors this is a must read!!!
The author takes you on this great and very realistic journey to becoming a spartan warrior. The things these poor boys have to go through at such a young age. The things they have to endure…. will break your heart.
They break these young boys down and build them back up to be emotionless killing machines.
It was hard to read at times. I felt for them. For the life that was so cruelly dealt to them. They never had a choice for anything. They did what was told of them.
As I read on these boys became men and I understood why they had such hard training from an early age. Going to war was no joke. They needed every skill possible in order to survive being out in war.
My stomach would be in knots every time they went off to war!
All the characters in this book were wonderful. I felt like I knew them personally. Having read about them from age 7 all the way on up to their mid thirties. Haden, Theon, Quill had my heart just as much as Eryx & Axios did.
They all started off as strangers then turned in to friend and at the end became brothers.
These characters will stay with me for a long time!
Watching Eryx and Axios relationship unfold from the beginning was so beautiful. The love they had for each other was so strong. You could feel the love they had pouring out of the pages as you read them!
“There is nothing I wouldn’t do for you,” he whispered, pressing his forehead to mine. “I would kill any man, go any distance, and burn the whole world down if it meant keeping you safe.”
They showed each other everyday how much they loved each other and at the same time they knew the reality of their situation. They were warriors. And had a duty.
“I do not fear death because I’m afraid of dying, Ery… I fear it because it would take me from you.”
And that was a constant struggle. They only had little glimpses of peace here and there. Because their duty of being a Spartan warrior was always hanging over their heads.
“I love you, Ax,” he said, becoming serious. “I know we may not ever have the life you wish to have, but I hope having my word is enough. My heart and my body are yours until the end of our days. I swear it to you, by the gods.”
I loved everything about this book. This is the first book by this author that I have read. It most definitely won’t be my last. I just want to thank her for bringing all these characters to life. I’ll never forget them.
“For as long as there is breath in my lungs, I will love you. Only you. And even when I leave this world, I will still belong to you, for my soul will forever seek yours. In both this life and the next.”
“My warrior. My lover. My heart.”
You will need your tissues handy in this book. I'm not a cried and I was a blubbering mess by the last chapter. Totally invested in all aspects of the book and it's characters. The secondary characters are just as delightful.
This book is my #1 read for 2017. This is saying something as I read a book a day. I have been feeling a real slump lately as the stories just seem to repeat the same ole theme. This book is nothing like you have read lately. I don't read the M/M genre too often but this books title and cover intrigued me. I am SO GLAD I dove into it. It's fast paced, steamy, descriptive, action pact and the best part is the most beautiful love story you have ever read.
I highly recommend this book to all. Please get to know the heroes of this book. They are real STARS!
