William and Raven are facing the toughest times in their relationship. Throughout her life, she has protected those she loves from terrible circumstances. She must also now protect William, her bashert. She is fierce. William has lost many in his existence. His beloved Alicia, his beloved teacher The Saint. There is a war coming in his city and he must protect Raven. William's seeks counsel from his Maker. But no one can be trusted. They were taken from each other in The Shadow, the coupe that overthrows the Prince and by the Curia.
Thrilling is a word I have used in short versions of a review for this story, and it is. You started to feel the anticipation in The Shadow as he fights for his city of Florence. Now he must find his Cassita. He'll have forces trying to keep them apart.
The whole of the series should be read from the beginning. You begin to see the references in the final book that were unfolding throughout the series. Sylvain Reynard is an excellent story teller. He has an amazing way to intertwine, in his characters, the ability to find their redemption in his stories. It is a testament to the persona SR must be in life. We are all worthy of grace and love, that is an important theme in the Florentine series. While some look at only beauty on the outside of a person, Raven has great inner beauty that William finds, and she accepts. I, as a reader, was greatly touched by the emotion he shows in this book. He writes about great loss with such feeling. Grief is an incredible emotion. The feeling of pain, numbness and emptiness were very relatable, I have gone through this in my life. He has captured these feelings on point.
I am going to miss William and Raven. I hope that someday SR will revisit them.
The entire series is a contemporary romance steeped in history, art, religion, mystery, suspense, and the beauty of all things Italian -- but it's so much more. Sylvain Reynard has created a labyrinthine underworld of vampyre royalty and hierarchy, ferals, hunters, and complicit humans that simply defies description. Even if you're not usually a fan of paranormal romance, this series is so much beyond what you've come to expect that it transcends the genre. If you love unforgettable, larger-than-life characters; passionate romance; suspense that will keep you riveted to the pages from beginning to end; twists and turns that will shake you to your core -- all woven majestically with themes of good and evil, hope and redemption, darkness and light -- you should not miss this masterful work of fiction.
The Roman is a stunning conclusion to this epic series - which must be read in order. William and Raven have reached the point of no return, struggling to hold on to their love at any cost as emboldened enemies gather strength, and conspirators plot to tear their world apart at the seams. The story is deeply emotional and intelligent. It makes you think -- to question assumptions, to challenge the concepts of good and evil. It fearlessly exposes the dark side of human existence - rigid belief systems that are based on tradition, myth, and "black and white" thinking; the quest for power at any cost. It will make you question your own limits -- how far would you go to save the love of your life? Your kingdom? Your soul?
William York is a dark hero, complex and powerful, yet tender and compassionate with Raven, the woman who's captured and freed his heart. Raven is courageous, resilient, determined, resourceful, and devoted; her predicament is perilous at every turn, but her love for William is absolute. The chemistry between them explodes off the page. Their commitment, the risks they are willing to take, and the suffering they are willing to endure for each other is so powerful you will never forget it.
The build-up to the ending -- and the ending itself -- will blow you away. I had no idea what to expect, but I knew what I hoped for. The Roman delivered more...more of everything.
I didn't want The Florentine to end; I procrastinated up to the last minute because I didn't want to say goodbye to these two amazing characters. I feared for them; I longed for them; I hoped with them. And I will do so again, because it's never enough to read Sylvain Reynard once. This series has set a new standard for contemporary paranormal romance-suspense, and has reaffirmed by devotion to Sylvain as an author worth reading again and again and again.
This final book in the series starts with Raven and her unconscious sister being transported to Rome by Vampyres. Raven thinks William has been killed by the new Prince of Florence and the only safe place for them is with her Priest friend in Rome.
But of course William isn't dead. Well, at least not deader than he's always been. ☺ He's hot on his pet's trail.
And together they have to try to convince the Curia and The Roman that Raven can stay with William. And they need to get her sister safely out of Italy too. And that's only the beginning - we have lots of other things happening too....very dangerous and deadly and sexy things.....
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH RAVEN & WILLIAM? WILL THEY GET THEIR HAPPILY EVER AFTER? READ THE BOOK TO FIND OUT☺☺☺
The final book in this beautiful series! ☹ And it was just as great as the others. We have a lot to do until our darlings can even think of riding off into the sunset!
It's a very suspensy and exciting and moving last book. It takes us a very long time to get all things sorted and it still might be possible that not everybody will survive this series. You won't be able to take a deep and relaxed breath until you've read the final word in this book, this series.
Get ready for an amazing finale!!!!
►► THE ROMAN was the perfect ending to this beautiful series! Run to your nearest amazon to find out if and how Raven & her Prince will get their HEA!!!
