"The Raven was a fabulous Gothic treat of a book filled with ancient vampires, dark vendettas, and star-crossed love."—Deb Harkness, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Life

Product Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel series comes a dark, sensual tale of romance in a city shrouded in mystery . . .



Raven Wood spends her days at Florence's Uffizi gallery restoring Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semiconscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attackers' screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her . . .



Cassita vulneratus.



When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. Upon returning to the Uffizi, no one recognizes her. More disturbingly, she discovers that she's been absent an entire week. With no recollection of her disappearance, Raven learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history--the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the police identify her as their prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence's wealthiest and most elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets . . .

Kindle Friends Forever: Reviewed by Sharon Thérèse Nuttall

For a reviewer, describing an author’s modus operandi used in a book overflowing with the unexpected, refreshing to the point in its perplexity only to be revealed with a style like no other, is a humbling experience. Therefore, my mild alternative to explain how I felt about this book was for me, a personal challenge. Sentences morph into prose, prose become poetry and I was ashamed to highlight and underline words and verses as I thought my vocabulary was up to par. Although this genre is not my preference, there is no doubt that I was gripped from the first page. The lack of dialogue at the beginning of the read was not an issue, either. The two protagonists voice their opinions in third person and more important, their doubts for the future is told in an unmeasurable timeline that makes for what I would consider, nothing less than a masterpiece. I have always valued a good book which offers creativity in a solid storyline and personality development. So while reading between the lines and trying to fathom out what could happen next to the major characters, not only resulted in me being left spellbound, but also left me in awe of the writer. When dialogue is introduced, putting this book down wasn’t an option. After mentioning the author’s style of writing to my sister-in arms, her reply didn’t surprise me. “He’s the best, no question!” How could I possibly argue with her!

I have always steered well clear of paranormal and much less anything to do with centuries old dark, blood fetish fiends. Neither have I watched films or series about them. After the author’s publisher kindly offered this book to me for reviewing, was when I realised that I had already one-clicked the book and the audible.

Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 stars--THE RAVEN is the first full length novel in Sylvain Reynard’s adult, contemporary The Florentine paranormal, romance series focusing on an ancient vampire known as ‘The Prince’ or ‘William York’ and Uffizi Gallery art restorer American Raven Wood. There is a character crossover with the series as the Prince is on the trail of Professor Gabriel Emerson and his wife Julianne from Reynard’s GABRIEL ‘S INFERNO contemporary romance series. Emerson was in possession of some stolen art-art that once belonged to the Prince. You can find the background information in the prequel novella-The Prince.

Told from third person point of view, the premise follows The Prince as his subjects and people continue to battle the rogue vampires who have infiltrated the Florentine Prince’s territory. An attack by the rogue vampires against a young human woman finds the Prince coming to her aid only to discover that something about the ‘Rubenesque’ woman calls to his heart and to his soul. The Prince does not do relationships; does not do love but protecting the woman known as Raven Wood becomes one of his top priorities.

The Prince is an ancient vampire; a man whose authority is final; his word is law; and a ruler who is quick to destroy anyone who questions his power. His relationship with Raven will become more complicated as the storyline develops because saving her from the rogue vampires also meant saving her from death-a death from which needed a vampire’s blood to survive. Their connection is immediate but Raven is unaware of what has transpired leaving her vulnerable and asking questions of the wrong people. When her life is threatened, the Prince offers up the only thing he can do-for Raven to become his own.

I quite enjoyed this novel and usually I am not a paranormal fan. I did enjoy this author's previous books so I purchased The Raven. It was a great book with many inter-woven relationships as well as beautiful descriptive(he does this well)scenery.
