Katiebird reviews The Prince by Sylvain Reynard

a prince


The unveiling of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy at the Uffizi Gallery exposes the unsuspecting Professor Gabriel Emerson and his beloved wife, Julianne, to a mysterious and dangerous enemy.

Unbeknownst to the Professor, the illustrations he secretly acquired years ago were stolen a century earlier from the ruler of Florence’s underworld. Now one of the most dangerous beings in Italy is determined to reclaim his prized artwork and exact revenge on the Emersons, but not before he uncovers something disturbing about Julianne …

Set in the city of Florence, “The Prince” is a prequel novella to “The Raven,” which is the first book in the new Florentine Series Trilogy by Sylvain Reynard.

“The Prince” can be read as a standalone but readers of The Gabriel Series may be curious about the connection between The Professor’s world and the dark, secret underworld of “The Prince.”

Fans of the Gabriel series will love this book for a number of reasons. It should be no surprise that everyone here at Bookish Temptations are big fans, so I was thrilled to get back to reading about one of our favorite couples…


Katiebird's review


Like the summary says you don’t have to read the Gabriel series to read this book, but if you are one of the few people who hasn’t…Where the hell have you been? This book is a basic intro into SR’s paranormal world of vampires ruling the Underworld in Italy. It didn’t surprise me a bit that art would trigger revenge. Too bad the main character, the Prince, makes the decision to exact revenge on our favorite couple.

Having been to Florence since reading the Gabriel series, my perspective has changed with regards to the intimate scenes in the Uffizi Gallery that we get to read about. I fell more in love with SR’s writing style, because I could totally picture the landscape and atmosphere.

Being the resident paranormal romance girl, and lover of all things vampire, I am very excited to read The Raven, and love that SR gave us this glimpse into what will be an amazing adventure, for sure…
