Overview

Ares would permit no one to change what the Fates had set in motion. In an ancient world, the Fates decree that a Champion will soon be brought forth: a being both mortal and eternal, destined to become as legendary as the Gods to whom she will be forever enslaved. Of the twelve who rule on Mount Olympus, it is Ares, God of War, son of Zeus and Hera, who recognizes both the truth of the divination, and the one who has been chosen. On the eve of the new millennium, the Champion of Olympus is called forth by disciples of the Ancient Order of Zeus, and Amarantha finds that she must once again defend history and myth with her very life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you enjoy the world of classical mythology, you'll love this novel." - Margaret Carter, author

"Ms. Bridger brings new life to the Greek gods and to any human with the mixed luck to cross their paths, including an unusual warrior woman who might be Xena's long-lost sister. Part II in particular is a page-turner, interlocked with what has gone before in a millennia-spanning clash of mortal versus immortal love." - Patricia Hodgell, author

"This tale of an eternal champion torn between her love for a god and a mortal - and her duty to both of them - should satisfy readers with a taste for romantic fantasy." - Nancy Baker, author

"I just finished and I'm in love. I'm getting a copy for everyone I know for Christmas." - Lila Dubois, author

"As Fate Decrees is well-written and has an interesting core concept." - Dru Pagliassotti, reviewer, The Harrow

"The characters Bridger creates are intense and believable..." - Carolyn Cooke, reviewer, Surrey Now

"One of Burnside's best-kept cultural secrets is about to take the international literary stage..." - Stephen Clare, The Burnside News

"Romance, adventure, time travel, magic, and conspiracy theories all get intertwined in this one, which sets its sights reasonably high and reaches most of them." - Don D'Ammassa

"Both tales, and how they merge are masterfully done. The mythology is excellent and the story of timeless love, and fealty to the Gods is amazing. Am and Ares are together until the Fates decree she is to go and champion them at another time..." - Ellen, Amazon.com

"As Fate Decrees by Denyse Bridger is a rip-roaring yarn that keeps you reading right to the end." - Elizabeth Patterson, journalist

"At its core, As Fate Decrees is a story of true love; not just the romantic slushy stuff either, but that love you feel deep in your soul; that connects two people across time and space." - Lisa Fitzpatrick, Amazon.co.uk

"Ms. Bridger has written a tale so rich in detail and characterization I was pulled right into the novel and left breathless. I've been a fan of Denyse Bridger's romances for years now, and though romance isn't the main theme, it is present. Anyone who enjoys Greek Mythology, and even those who don't, will love this story. As Fate Decrees should not be passed up. The reviewer who gave this book one star...I doubt they even read it." - Kelly Wallace, Amazon.com

"This historical fantasy should appeal to readers who enjoy the Greek setting, complete with sword-play, warrior women, romance, aloof impetuous gods and modern-day terrorists." - Ronald Hore, CM Magazine

"As a concept for a story, I found the novel completely different from anything I've read in a long time." - Fantasy Book Spot.com

"Here is a first-rate piece of writing. It's very readable, the characters are well done, and it is an interesting look inside Greek mythology. This gets two thumbs up." - Dead Trees Review
