Editorial Reviews

Review

"The descriptions are detailed and vivid and make ancient Rome just come to life.  It is exciting and fast paced and kept me eagerly turning pages to find out the fate of our heroes and their plot to kill Nero.  And it is a sweet tale of two men who find love amidst great pain.  Really great story and one I'd definitely recommend."  - Joyfully Jay

"The writing is vivid in people, places and action. I can see each of these places in the story...Ms. Henry's books always play like a movie in my mind." - La Crimson Femme

Since I became obsessed with the TV show Spartacus I've been on the lookout for books featuring gladiators/Roman life and immediately became drawn to He Is Worthy. There's a lot happening in the shortened length of this book and I became thoroughly immersed in this world and the outcome of its appealing characters.
Novius Senna has grown tired of doing dirty deeds at Nero's request and has luckily stumbled across the one man who can help him end Nero's nightmarish deeds. Aenor's life took a brutal turn the day he went from trader to slave and after being brutalized by Romans for entertainment is hesitant to trust Senna and the feelings being generated. Aenor's desire for revenge and a gentle hand have him agreeing to a plan that will result in both of their deaths but will end Nero's tyranny.
Knowing their lives are quickly coming to an end has them clinging to each other quickly. Senna was gentle with Aenor during their sexual encounters and it was sad knowing that almost every previous encounter for him was abusive. Seeing this other side of Senna, being caring instead of killer, was appealing and showed why they needed to be together. Senna liked himself with Aenor as Aenor drew strength from Senna after being emotionally defeated for so long.
There were many names being bandied about which made it hard to keep track of who was who at times. Some of the political/war talk became a bit distracting at times as well but the images and language of that time felt very realistic. It was easy to picture what was happening and helped me immerse myself in the story. The conclusion of the story was a bit rushed and after the big build-up of the assassination plan there was a bit of a let down.

These Warriors of Rome books published by Riptide are not for the faint of heart. The first in the series is "The Left Hand of Calvus" and though it was brutal it wasn't sexually explicit so I was a little taken by surprise at the sexual torment that takes place in this one. If you haven't read the first book and are interested in this one, no worries, these two are only connected by the ancient Rome setting.

I need to say something before I begin here because I know this sort of thing is a trigger for some readers and many prefer to avoid it. He Is Worthy contains descriptive scenes of sexual torture and the multiple rape and humiliation of an innocent young man. There are several scenes that will make you shudder with revulsion. It's not an easy read and there really aren't any moments of levity to make it any less grueling.

He Is Worthy is set in ancient Rome where an emperor named Nero , insane with power, terrorizes his people for pleasure. Oblivious to the pain and terror of the innocents he harms, his reign of terror gets more brutal with each passing day. Senna grew up with Nero and is in a very precarious position. He realizes his childhood friend has gone off the deep end and he is increasingly disturbed by Nero's actions but standing up to him means instant death. And he should know. It is Senna's job to visit those the emperor believes have betrayed him. When Senna utters the words "you no longer have the friendship of the Emperor" they fall upon their own sword. Senna is the messenger of death and feared by most men in Rome.

He is Worthy, Lisa Henry's novel in the Warriors of Rome series is gripping and edgy. Set in 68 A.D. Rome, the tale illustrates life under one of Rome's most feared and disturbing men, Nero. Senna, Nero's friend and henchman lives a dangerous life as the deliverer of Nero's madness. Aenor is a newly captive Bructeri, enslaved by Nero for his demented pleasure.

Turmoil surrounds the time period as Nero grows more insane, brutalizing his friends and enemies alike. Torturing slaves; raping and pillaging are among his depravities. Senna realizes that all is lost under the realm of Nero and soon takes matters into his own hands as to eradicate Nero from Rome. He encounters Aenor in Nero's palace and immediately is drawn to the tortured slave. Battered and horrifically beaten, Senna sees past the physical and into the soul of a beautiful creature who contains strength and passion burning in his eyes. Aenor, although hating all things Roman, agrees to help Senna destroy Nero. Deceit and disloyalty lead to treason and sends the two men on a downhill spiral where the only ending can be tragedy. A commonality develops between the two men as a hatred for Nero and affection for each other blossoms in a world where the delineation between master and slave is never crossed unless taken by force.

Ms. Henry delivers a tale that kept me on the edge of my seat as I could not put the book down. I became enraged, cried and cheered for the underdog in this enthralling story. The demeanor of Senna and Aenor captivated my mind and led me on a journey of the human spirit not found in contemporary writing. The sex between the two men is not one of erotic lust, but a careful exploration between two desperate souls finding their way in a tumultuous time.
