this is where we used to live

Just finished reading Fire from Heaven this morning (spent most of last night curled up with it instead of being online).

While I find Renault’s style a bit… tedious overdone, I’m anxious to get home tomorrow because I have The Persian Boy sitting on my end table, waiting to be read. Is there a lot of Hephaistion in it? I’ve always been a fan of Hephaistion, in the other stories of Alexander I’ve read (much as I immediately latched onto Patroclus in the Iliad. [Well, Patroclus and Hector, because mmm…Hector… ahem.] I think it’s a function of my sidekick love, and also, of course, the whole best friends become lovers thing), and would like more of him.

Anyway, I kind of really really loved Fire from Heaven and Alexander and Hephaistion’s relationship. ♥
