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…

Armchair BEA 2013: What Did We Miss?

Today’s genre topic asked “What Did We Miss?”

I think under the broadest of terms the answer would be none. But, today I’m going to talk about two sub-genres that fall under the umbrella of Fiction.
