Arthur Blauefee promised to stay away from Jeremy Tyler forever. But when he learns that his troubled, heartbroken ex-lover has been seduced and swindled out of his inheritance, Arthur is off to the rescue.
After rekindling their passionate affair, the starry-eyed lovers learn that Jeremy’s plight has gone from terrible to worse. Not only has Jeremy been cheated out of his fortune, he’s been framed for murder. Desperate to clear Jeremy’s name, the pair travels to Greece in pursuit of the nefarious conman Lazzaro Sforza and enters a shady world of sex rings, designer drugs, and international intrigue. Aided by the powerful hallucinogen Sueño Gris, Jeremy journeys into his past lives. Hopscotching through time, from the Civil War all the way back to the Roman Empire, Jeremy discovers that Lazzaro has betrayed him many times before. Can Arthur and Jeremy finally trump the scheming Lazzaro, or are they doomed to repeat their ill-fated pasts?
This is by far my favorite of the Arthur/Jeremy books. I officially think Luke Daniels may be the best narrator in the known universe. Not just for this series but for the Iron Druid Chronicles as well. This is the 3rd book in the Arthur/Jeremy books, but according to the author, the fourth book in the series; with Black as Snow as the third. But I didn't read Black as Snow and this book picks up right where Double Bound, the 2nd book, leaves off, so it's confusing. I can tell you, I didn't feel like I missed anything by not reading Black as Snow. This installment was my favorite because it really deals with Arthur and Jeremy's relationship in a tender and unexpected way. The author dives into all kinds of existential ideas and cleverly weaves in Greek and Roman history and mythology. I really enjoyed it and Luke Daniels really just brought it to a whole new level.

Excellent finish to the series. Started to tear up near the end. Definitely a must listen. Can't say more without ruining it.

...relying on reincarnation and several past lives. While it was interesting fantasy, it was stretching the imagination a bit too far into tediousness. It just became boring. Too bad, because it was part of an otherwise good series.
