An engaging, quick read despite the fact that the POV character, Patroclus (Achilles' main squeeze) is terribly passive, nothing much happens, and the majority of the narrative is given over to lovey-dovey navel gazing (which usually makes me want to scoop my eyes out with a spork). *Snerk* I'm not exactly sure why I liked it. Maybe I have a higher tolerance for schmaltz with M/M romance. I'm going with "author has a natural storyteller's voice." Sure, why not?
