Summary

"'Shall we allow criminals to roam the streets at will because we're afraid to take the chance of harming an innocent prisoner?'"

 
A bloody knife from a crime scene becomes a mystery to be solved and a foreshadow of trouble to come.

 
The ties forged between the noble-minded Eternal Dungeon and an abusive foreign dungeon have set off an unpredictable chain of horrific events, in which the love between two of the Eternal Dungeon's Seekers (torturers) will be tested to the straining point. Caught in the middle of the struggle are Barrett Boyd and Seward Sobel, loyal guards who will find themselves questioning their most fundamental beliefs about the royal prison's ideals.

 
Barrett must help his Seeker determine whether their mild-mannered prisoner is an attempted murderer. His friend Seward has pledged to guard his own Seeker against an assassin . . . or should Seward be protecting the dungeon inhabitants against his Seeker? But when the guards' two Seekers fall into a lovers' quarrel, that is when the real danger begins.

 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this tale of friendship, romance, and suspense can be read on its own or as the fourth volume in The Eternal Dungeon, a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips.

 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Young Toughs, Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    Prophecy says he’s the one who will find the lost Rhomanii homeworld. Fate has governed his whole life. But he’s not letting it control his future.  
    The Rhomanii are looking for the man foretold in the prophecy, a leader that will unite the clans and lead them home. Some addled seers decided that man is Rafe. That caused a bit of an issue, mostly because there is a second foretelling, one calling him the destroyer. Cooler name, but it comes with attempts to kill him, mostly by his uncle, the archduke for the enclave. 
    But what’s a little blood and murder between family members? 
    Rafe is older now. Wiser. And most definitely deadlier, which is why Rafe is returning to the mighty wheel housing his clan. It seems his uncle has some of the artifacts he’s seeking. 
    Not for long. 
    Rafe is so close to completing the puzzle and solving the mystery. Maybe even finding the mysterious path home. Time is running out, though.  The forces for and against him are rallying. Grumbles and whispers tell of entire families gone silent. Who is killing them, and is rebellion the only solution?
