4.25 stars--THE PRINCE is the prequel novella in Sylvain Reynard’s adult, contemporary The Florentine paranormal series-with a character cross over from the author’s best selling Gabriel’s Inferno series that bridges between the two. If you are a fan of Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard, you will be pleased to know that Professor Gabriel Emerson and his wife Julianne play a significant if not unwitting role throughout the introductory novella.

The premise follows the true Prince of Florence (or Master as he is also known); a supernatural being; the ruler of the underworld and a man set on vengeance against the Professor for an act of betrayal.

Approximately 140 years earlier the Prince was in possession of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy that fell into the hands of thief of unknown name and origin. Fast forward to present day and the Prince will take his revenge on the current owners-Gabriel and Julianne Emerson. While the Prince follows the lovers home, he will encounter a group of assassins, not unlike himself, who have been ordered to take down the Prince and end his life. An attack against the Prince finds heads rolling; the security team on the defense; and his people preparing for war with the Venetians.

We are witness to Gabriel and Julianne’s explicit and continuing romantic love affair; a voyeur along with the Prince at every encounter as Gabriel claims his wife. Their highly sexualized relationship continues to grow stronger but there are warnings on the horizon that not all is well with Gabriel’s wife.

THE PRINCE is a revealing, fast paced, introductory storyline that sets the premise for Reynard’s The Florentine paranormal series. The Italian imagery is breathtaking; the Uffizi Gallery a work of art; the Underworld is mysterious, dark and dangerous.

HASH(0xa02d16fc) out of 5 stars This curious, dark, and mysterious read was a great introduction into this brand new world that Sylvain Reynard has created. Jan. 20 2015
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Secrets, lies, revenge, and war, The Prince will stop at nothing to seek his revenge. Nothing short of a war will keep him away from his task.

I’m constantly impressed by Sylvain Reynard’s writing style. Always extremely detailed, and with such a vivid imagination, the author transports us to the underworld of Florence with great ease. Bringing Gabriel and Julianne was a genius move. Fans of the Gabriel’s Inferno series will rejoice the first time they see Gabriel’s name in the story. The Prince will not only suck back in the die-hard fans, but is sure to lure new fans in instantly. We get the harshness and ruggedness of the prince and the sweet and tenderness of Gabriel and Julianne’s love for one another. Perfect mix. Perfect balance. Brand new journey!

The Prince is our absolutely intriguing main character in this story. You walk away from this not knowing if he will be the hero or the villain in this series. He has characteristics that steer him in either direction, and I really love that. It keeps you guessing, tempting you to come back for more. The Prince’s interaction with Gabriel and Julianne is very short, but nonetheless very important. There is hinting to there being something wrong with Julianne, something the Prince doesn’t give away quite yet, so I’m very interested to see where the author is going with that plot twist. With this only being a novella there was quite a bit going on to get us ready for Book 1 in The Florentine series, THE RAVEN. This curious, dark, and mysterious read was a great introduction into this brand new world that Sylvain Reynard has created. I will be anxiously waiting to dive right back in with THE RAVEN.

HASH(0xa02d1750) out of 5 stars an alluring, dark, brooding vampire that maintains his virtues from his mortal life... yes, please! Jan. 20 2015
By Jessica Sotelo (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Sylvain Reynard captivated readers with the Gabriel trilogy, an epic love story that paralleled the romanticism found in famous works of art and poetry. Reynard returns here with The Prince, where Gabriel and Julianne are unknowingly caught in the crosshairs of the supernatural. But this story isn't about Gabriel and Julianne Emerson entirely. This is about The Prince. The Prince of Florence, the leader of the Florentine supernatural populace.

Unbeknownst to Gabriel Emerson, he possesses the prized collection of artwork that was actually stolen from The Prince centuries earlier. Gabriel has, all this time, believed them to be copies, but The Prince knows them to be originals that once belonged to him. And now he's determined to exact vengeance upon the Emersons.

However, peculiarly virtuous, The Prince vows to never take goodness from the world intentionally. So he's determined to kill Gabriel whom he believes has knowingly stolen his precious Boticelli illustrations, but he's sparing the life of Julianne. The Prince surmises immediately that something is amiss with Julia's health, but his plan to attack Gabriel is thwarted temporarily by enemy attacks on Florence.

The fact that Gabriel and Julia's love story always traced back to Italy, their time there, the parallels to the relationship to great Italian art, sets the stage for this new series. What better vista for a centuries old vampire paranormal story than Florence, Italy. The setting is everything in this prequel, the language, the music, the art, the history, it feels so fluid, so perfect.

The Prince of Florence is mysterious, beckoning the reader to crave more of him. He's alluring and dark, brooding and clearly beautiful, but he's a stone wall, impenetrable. Which, of course, only makes me want to know more about him, see his defenses weakened, understand him. What piques my curiosity the most is that he maintains the virtues he lived by as a human. This man, determined in his drive to protect himself and his kind, ruthless in his revenge, somehow still holds something virtuous in his soul. But he's immortal, so the question is, what remains to be seen? I'm beyond excited to read more of this series, to unlock the secrets of The Prince.

HASH(0xa02d1b88) out of 5 stars A great start to an exciting & captivating trilogy! Jan. 22 2015
By BAE - Published on

This is my first experience reading the paranormal genre. I didn't exactly know what to expect, but I knew that if I was going to venture into this genre, I couldn't be in better hands.

Changing genres can be quite risky, therefore, it might be a daunting experience for any author. But after reading The Prince, I only can say that I'm in awe how masterfully SR succeeded in delivering a heart-stopping introduction to a promising and exciting new trilogy.

The Prince is a short, but intense novella that links The Gabriel Series with The Florentine Series. A bridge between both trilogies. I've always thought SR's pen has magical powers that cast spells to his readers. We have the opportunity to enjoy the always charming and lovely Emersons as well as the new characters of this fascinating story that develops in the Underworld of Florence.

"If he could be said to have a lover, her name would be Florence. He adored the city and would do anything for her. In return, she pleased and comforted him like a devoted mistress."

Even when the Emersons are a relevant part in the story, they aren't the main focus in it. Their appearances were carefully added at the right place and time. And what can I say about Chapter 10? If you are a fan of The Gabriel Series, you'll find a pleasant surprise in that chapter. That only chapter for me was worth 10 stars...

“Tonight I’ll help you touch the stars. And when you fall back to earth, I promise to catch you.”

Yes, ladies! That's our swoon-worthy Professor Emerson! ;)

The Prince is a character that I'm truly willing to see how SR develops. I love complex characters and seeing how authors work their magic developing their growth throughout their stories. And this is SR we're talking about. Redemption is a must. I’m eagerly to read The Raven, first book in the Florentine Series, and see the beginning of the transformation of this mysterious, dangerous and intriguing character.

Art, history, architecture, excellent writing style, brilliant and engaging storytelling, and the promise of a journey that will remain in our memories for years to come.

"He looked up at the stars and the slip of moon that shone above him. And he remembered Mrs. Emerson’s words about the stars. Words he’d remember forever, if he lived that long. Words he’d have to fight to forget after he’d had his revenge, just like the sound of her happy laughter."

I give The Prince 5 transcendental stars.

HASH(0xa02d1b70) out of 5 stars Romantic and mysterious, beautifully written. Jan. 20 2015
By Gretchen - About That Story - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this story extremely intriguing and captivating! Sylvain Reynard has such a specific writing style, so eloquent, it almost has an old fashioned feel to it but it's modern and fresh. I don't know how to explain it but I really, really like it!

Great introduction! It had this dark and mysterious feel to it and there's a great paranormal element at play. The Prince is fascinating and complex. I loved all the little details learned about him. There is definitely an interesting dynamic in the city where the Prince lives with those of his kind and I liked it a lot. I was excited and anticipating what would happen next. There was a nice amount of conflict in this with some action thrown in, my kind of story! I really liked how the story was laid out and got a good feel for the Prince’s world. All the characters that were introduced were interesting as well. I’m excited to see what will happen next.

I really liked how Gabriel and Julia (from the Gabriel’s Inferno series) were tied into the story as well. They are always so romantic and sensual together and you could definitely feel that in this. I found the Prince’s fascination with the Emerson's extremely intriguing, he just couldn't seem to pull his thoughts away from them.

Romantic and mysterious, beautifully written. I am highly anticipating The Raven now!

HASH(0xa02d3048) out of 5 stars Very compelling! Fast paced, and full of action with splashes of snarky humor. Jan. 20 2015
By Bookish Temptations - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Described as a bridge between Sylvain Reynard‘s Gabriel Inferno series and Florentine series, The Prince is a must read novella for many reasons…

As a reader I always consider it a gift when I can get my hands on anything written by SR, because I truly love his particular writing style. It’s fluid, and brings the narrative to life with beautiful descriptions that allow me to experience the story as I’m reading it. I also know that along the journey SR will take me on, I’ll be immersed in the arts…paintings, literature, and music will accompany the tale I’m being told, and add depth to the richness. And hey…a trip abroad to the beautiful city of Florence, Italy? That’s yet another bonus.

As for the Prince himself? Well let’s see…he’s intense, mysterious, arrogant, masterful and exudes a raw sexuality that I enjoyed immensely. I was immediately intrigued and fascinated by this new character, but I wasn’t sure whether he was going to rate book boyfriend status or not. By the end of this novella I was firmly convinced that he was indeed. In other words ladies…he’s hot :)

As a huge fan of the Gabriel Inferno series, I was ecstatic to read the scenes with Gabriel and Julianne. If by chance you haven’t read that series let me just say this…WHY the HELL not?!? It’s one of my all time favorites people, and even tho it’s not required in order to enjoy and appreciate, The Prince, I would highly, HIGHLY recommend it. If you have read it, I want to advise you to have Gabriel’s Redemption at hand while you’re reading The Prince.

The story is fast paced, exciting, intriguing, full of action, splashes of snarky humor, and left me with several questions. Will the Prince exact his particular brand of justice upon my beloved Gabriel Emerson for his perceived misdeeds against the Prince? Something seems to be amiss as far as Julia is concerned. Should I be worried about that as well?!? Because I am.

I can only imagine that it’s quite daunting when an author chooses to cross over into another genre as SR has done, but he’s done so brilliantly. He’s created a dark underworld which is complex, unique, and so compelling that you’ll be swept away and dying to get your hands on The Raven.
