The story was written after the two series were established and it appears to have been written to address some of the leaps of faith that were needed tie the two series together. If you have not read the Gabriel series then aspects of the story will not be as well understood. Reynard does review some scenes from the final Gabriel book to bring new readers up to speed but the different perspective allows the those who are reading the books in order to not feel like they are re-reading the same material.
I waited for The Prince to come out before moving on to the Florentine Series as the leap between genres wasn't sitting well with me. Because this book is written to tie the series together, the ending, while final, leaves the reader with a sense that there is more to come. It's not a cliffhanger, but the story isn't over either. This sort of ending is usually a pet peeve of mine, however, knowing that this book was intended as a bridge between the two series, and the fact that it did have an ending of sorts, leaves me wanting to know what comes next instead of rant about unfinished story arcs.
Overall, I like this book for what it is.
This is a short book but gives all the players, the members of the Consilium (ruling council) and the conflicts happening in the underworld. The Prince shows the dangerous depth of Williams depravity. Even the light of love between Gabriel and Julia he witnesses causes him even more disdain and torment. It would be hard to see William as a hero for a romantic series if this was not Sylvain Reynard writing! William's only care is for his city. He is without hope or peace even after a visit to his mentor. That scene in particular made me feel compassion for him as he showed signs of searching and reflecting. However, this was short lived. I am intrigued greatly to experience more of this series!
I'm glad we also saw fan favorites (and my favorites!) Gabriel and Julia, including from another perspective (slightly voyeuristic!) of their "museum sex" scene at the Uffizi Gallery (Gabriel's Redemption).
I’ve read “The Man in the Suit” and Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy so I know Reynard’s proclivities lean towards the tender and sweet. I’m hoping things can be more severe and darker in this series!
Absolutely loved the penultimate chapter in this novella! I could imagine such torment in vivid detail- reminiscent of Gabriel’s struggle- but this fury was so flammable!
Here we go!
