Reviewed by Patrice F.



In the last days of Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius stirs while high ranking men like Lucius gorge on power and pleasure.  Lucius purchases Xina, a beautiful slave girl in the market place.  He is consumed by passion for her from the start.  Jealousy, passion, deceit and danger surround the handsome general and the sensuous young virgin that has become his obsession. 

Darkly emotional, Whom Gods Have Favored is an exciting and well-crafted tale plush with historical details that yanked me in until the curtain closed.  Denysé Bridger’s characters are complex, riveting in their vices and weaknesses.  It’s fascinating the way she explores the more sinister aspects of the human psyche.  Lucius and Xina are lovers and much more in the making.  In reading this wondrous story I got into the “making”, their evolvement along the course of love.   Ms. Bridger paints a somber and visually stunning portrait, hammering out line after line; a gifted wordsmith with a luminous imagination.  If you haven’t encountered this author before, this is an excellent intro to her style and first rate talent.
