#Was Staring Intently Straight Up At My Window Poor Felicia #staring intently straight up at my window Poor Felicia Not bad enough that she is a eviled 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 ude 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 ose 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 oom 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 otten debauched hellmouth where she is caught in the intrigues of political and bed ivals alikeFelicia s first person narrative is so emotionally poignant ealistic and strong that you cannot help as the eader 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 emain 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 epetitive 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 UPDATED REVIEWRomance Is Horror just as the little voice in the back of my head has often whispered to me during various awkward momentsThe Silver Devil is an historical omance with a twist the twist i loved it the feverishly sweaty and grotesue atmosphere the constant viciousness and savagery the insanely operatic characters incredible and surprise the writing is highly accomplished overall it was fascinating the whole thing was so luridly gothic an experience that at times it became hard for me to wrap my mind around in a good wayokay i ve ead about bodice ippers than actually experienced them i understand that brutish man boys are the standard that women often fall into two categories inexplicably independent for the historical time period depicted or in the case of the The Silver Devil virginal proto nuns this novel pitches these two archetypes of Man Woman so beyond that template that the effect is genuinely surreal the brutality and apeyness was extreme normally this is something that would upset me and yet and yet everything came together in such an intense fashion that i began to see it as an un omance a kind of extreme elationship novel with a hair aisingly demanding dom and a heroine who is so deranged in her passivity that she comes across as the ultimate subjugate me please sub but in the end it was. Lt nothing but terror when they told her that she had been chosen as the Duke's next mistress and when they took her decked in silks and jewels to the Silver Devil's bedTHE SILVER. ,
As i mentioned at the start A Tale of Horror that was eally the only way i could take this seriously and because of the strength of the writing i was eally the only way i could take this seriously and because of the strength of the writing i take it seriously i did not ead this with a droll sense of irony because this shit is good man the intensity sort of made me feel high at timesthe heroine is a young sheltered abused naif and yet a glass half full sorta gal so devoid of all maliciousness or need for evenge that she basically comes across as a severely developmentally disabled girl woman she moved from being a sad character to a pathetic character to a character who attained a bizarre transcendence in the extremity of her submissiveness she is Pure Victim and the genuine horror of her story is her unexplainable love for the worst most evil hero i ve come across since i don t know when it is like
she was hypnotized by a devil The Silver Devil once i began to see this as a story of extreme psychologicalwas hypnotized by a devil The Silver Devil once i began to see this as a story of extreme psychological and so ejected it as a omance it eally came together for me in a way i did not expect i was on the edge of my seat constantly just waiting for the next hellish trial that she would be put through her terrorized first person perspective on the world around her only strengthened the horror of it all this is a deeply ealized historical novel with a consistently grim tone one that describes terrible smells of ot and death as a constant castles as places of nightmare appealing ascally types who turn around and laughingly engage in gang ape sybaritic aristocrats who cover their faces in dead white make up as if they are miming the undead irrational ulers who view their people as slaves to be used and killed unending misogyny devious deviants who love incest and pederasty the works this is a world of abominations and it is all brilliantly described as a genuine living hell ah omance ah horrorthe hero is something else and to me entirely unattractive and so the horror emained constant this was not a emotely arousing novel and yet i was enthralled by the excessive perversity on display it was easy to never sympathize with the twisted sickening hero just as it was easy to long for his punishment and demise because the author portrays him as evil incarnate he bullies and terrorizes and apes and beats the heroine FROM BEGINNING TO END all that plus he mocks and laughs at her on a egular basis too exulting in her pain and the bruises he inflicts upon her again not omance horror imagine a Rupert Everett type except with silver hair natch bisexual mordantly witty high handed suave always fashionable always cutting now combine him with an emo thug from the hbo series Oz who goes violently berserk and throws insane tantrums on a daily basis tortures people who look at his girl the wrong way lives to inspire fear and gets a boner over every one of his disgustingly callous m I don t ead too many historical omances but every once in a while it is nice to change it up When I ead a friend s eview for this one it sounded like just my type of story I have a thing for despicable often abusive heroes I love eading stories about the type of guys that you d un screaming from in eal life It s a hang up of mine I guessSet in the 1600 s The Silver Devil tells the story of the Duke of Cambria aka Domenico Used to getting his way at any cost he is cold selfish and often cruel When he sets eyes on Felicia one afternoon he decides that he will have her by any means necessary When Felicia wakes up in an unknown place she is soon made aware of her circumstances A young virgin Felicia is terrified when she is told that she is to be the newest plaything for the Duke She esigns herself to a fate worse than deathOver the course of many weeks Felicia eventually grows fond of the Duke despite his less than pleasant disposition The kind man and tender lover that he is privately contrasts sharply with the cruel and calculating man he is in public Watching how easily he dismisses his closest acuaintances with little egard she fears the day that he will grow tired of herDomenico was definitely a tough character to like He takes Felicia by force and shows little egard for her feelings for much of the book At the same time he treats her with just enough tenderness to keep masochistic eaders like me hanging in there I can t esist a bad guy that is almost irredeemable Domenico fits the bill perfectly Just when I thought he d crossed the point of no eturn he d go and show another side of himself He was every bit as endearing as he was infuriatingIf like me you love stories about eally bad guys that turn over a new leaf for the woman they love then this is a good choice It doesn t come uickly or easily though You will have to hang in there to the very end to get the transformation you crave Domenico was a tough one to breakOverall I eally enjoyed this historical omance I found the characters and storyline to be very interesting I did have to slow down a little to make sense of the language but for a novel set in the 1600 s it was easier to follow than I had anticipated I m certainly no authority on this omance sub genre but I thought this was a fantastic ead.
