The Silver Devil by Teresa Denys 4 Uncomfortably Good StarsHe bought her for thirty pieces of silver drugged her dragged her from her home held her captive in his cellar subjected her to the scorn of his cohorts surrounded her with jealous former lovers and took her virginity in the most violent and humiliating way When she smiled at a boy he tortured and killed him When she tried to escape he hung those who assisted her When a woman tried to drive them apart he banished her to a leper colony When a childhood friend conspired against them he had starving dogs tear him limb from limb He seduced and impregnated servant girls passed mistresses off to his friends tried to curse his father into an early grave and drove his stepmother to suicide after having relations with her on the chapel floor HE IS SPOILED NARCISSISTIC JADED AND VOLATILE He is Domenico Giordano della Raffaelle Duke of Cabria and Lord of the Marches and he should NOT be lovable but he IS HE IS BEAUTIFUL BRAVE CHARMING AND PASSIONATE And when it comes to Felicia the girl he bought for thirty pieces of silver the one to whom he asserts It is your vocation to love me above all others So like all the others the men and women boyhood friends and stepmothers alike Felicia falls in love with His Grace The Duke of Cabria The Silver Devil by Teresa Denys is not a comfortable read Like it s hero the feelings it evokes are not kind or merciful Felicia s first person narrative so vividly describes her every feeling her every thought and her every conclusion that it s as if you re experiencing all of The Duke s actions his transgressions his commands his whispered seductions and possessive caresses from within her skin Her confusion becomes your confusion her fear your fear her pain your pain her rapture your rapture and her love your love By the time the story reaches its dramatic climax you re thoroughly convinced that His Grace is everything Felicia believes him to be an over indulged inconstant opportunist incapable of returning her love That s when we finally hear Domenico s side of the story and with it all of the unkind and unmerciful emotions finally come to an end Suddenly a whole new set of feelings roll through you ones that are refreshingly sweet and tender And when they continue to linger long after the story comes to an end you know with undue certainty that despite the discomfort The Silver Devil was an uncomfortably good read For information about my rating system see my profile pageA SHOUT OUT TO Fre06 I can t tell you how grateful I am for the recommendation It s nice to read a really well written book One where you get lost in the world of the main character Thanks for recommending it to me I hope someday I can return the favor

He sat on his horse unmoving a somber black figure in startling contrast to the vivid colors about him the sun dazzling on his white gold hair Unlike the duke and his bastard there was no laughter in his face and his eyes were not searching the housefronts for diversion instead he was staring intently straight up at my window Poor Felicia Guardi Not bad enough that she is a reviled bastard toiling away Cinderella like at the inn of her portly brother and his shrewish wife in the 15th century but now she has unbeknownst to her caught the eye of Domenico della Raffaelle heir to the Dukedom of Cabria in the fictitious southern city of Fidena Italy And if she thinks this is going to mean hearts and flowers she is in for a rude awakening For Domenico does not court certainly not an unprotected tavern wench He takes what he wants A voice soft and almost teasing stopped me in my tracks Little crow When I felt his fingertips against my cheek I flinched as I would have done from a brand But he turned my face up to him as casually as he might have turned a rose to smell it and unwarily I looked straight up into his eyesThey were black so dark that they were unfathomable and impossibly horrifyingly dark in that fair face I thought of Lucifer as I looked at him of a demon s eyes in the face of a fallen angel Then as I watched a strange light began to grow in them the darkness was swallowed up in a brilliance that made them blaze silver I caught my breath and the room the house the whole city was suddenly breathless with waiting Next thing you know her brother sells her for thirty pieces of silver and she is swept to the Duke s castle a corrupt rotten debauched hellmouth where she is caught in the intrigues of political and bed rivals alikeFelicia s first person narrative is so emotionally poignant realistic and strong that you cannot help as the reader to feel as she feels sees as she sees tremble as she trembles The character of Domenico seen through her eyes is a magnificent and charismatic but always aloof and distant cold and cruel figure Nevertheless Felicia for all her vulnerability has pride common sense loyalty and bravery These inner ualities than her pretty looks are what ensnares Domenico in turn and has his entire court gaping at the unprecedented obsession that his newest mistress has engendered in him The struggle of their personalities is mighty even though the scales are so imbalanced with Felicia fighting him at every turn But in my opinion despite the odds she is the one to come out on top I knew that love would not turn the silver devil into an angel He would remain what he was subtle yet childish unfeeling yet passionate lost irretrievably to everything but his own desire But he loved me and I loved him now and forever The silver devil is also a swashbuckler of a novel with some nice Gothic touches very vivid descriptions of battles some awful torture and assassination scenes and a couple of heart stopping duels A perfect pace with enough plot twists and turns to ensure that it never becomes boring repetitive or predictableI loved The Silver Devil from the first to the last word Heartbreaking that this book is one of only two known to have been penned by this talented author whose life was tragically cut short and about whom we know so little
