    Decorated artilleryman Edgar Mason was forced to find new work when the British Empire replaced its foot soldiers with monstrous machines. Agamemnon Frost, however, is far from the foppish man-about-town he appears to be. He's working to protect the Earth from an alien invasion being planned by a face-changing creature known as Pandarus. And on the night he plans to confront the aliens, he enlists Mason to assist him. For a man to love a man is a serious crime in Victorian England. But when Mason meets Frost, his heart thunders and his blood catches fire.

    Story

    I like steam punk as well as fantasy and SyFi, so I thought I’d give this twist of an alien aspect in a steam punk story a try. I only made it through the first chapter, with forced effort. So I can't really say much about the storyline, because there wasn't one yet. At this point it basically consists of Mason (the valet) flashing back to past sexual encounters with short and crude references, while reluctantly drooling over Frost. I have no problem with sexual content, but this was not presented in any type of well-constructed manner. It was more or less just shoved at you. I could not quite follow the direction of this book. If it is meant to be erotic… it is lacking. If it is not… then it is not a captivating first chapter. Either way the summary of this book is misleading. To me the summary presented a steam punk story, with aliens, where the main characters are gay. Great. It does not mention some of the more explicit/crude content at all. (f**k her hard, buried his d**k in him, aching d**k, ext...) All of which added nothing to the story. It was choppy and did not flow well. It is very rare that I don’t finish a book, even bad ones. But I just couldn’t get past the first chapter.
