From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel trilogy comes the highly anticipated conclusion to The Florentine Series.

Summary: Raven and her sister, Cara, are at the mercy of a small detachment of Florentine vampyres, who are delivering them as a peace offering to the feared Curia in Rome. Though she’s unsure William survived the coup that toppled his principality, Raven is determined to protect her sister at all costs, even if it means challenging Borek, the commander of the detachment. In an effort to keep Raven from falling into the hands of his enemies, William puts himself at the mercy of the Roman, the dangerous and mysterious vampyre king of Italy. But the Roman is not what he expects … Alliances and enmities will shift and merge as William struggles to save the woman he loves and his principality, without plunging the vampyre population into a world war. This stunning conclusion to the Florentine series will take readers across Italy and beyond as the lovers fight to remain together. Forever.

Review by Raum

For those who have been following the adventures of Raven and William York through The Prince, The Raven and The Shadow, The Roman represents the last step of a tour that took thousands of readers from all over the world to discover Florence, its history and its stunning art.

The Florentine Series is coming to an end and, sadly, it’s time to say goodbye to those characters. 
But Sylvain Reynard has prepared many surprises for the faithful readers who are willing to follow the acclaimed writer through a dangerous journey. 

The Roman will give you the opportunity to discover Rome, the eternal city. There couldn’t have been a better setting for the last act of the story of supernatural creatures gifted (or doomed) with immortality. 

We finally get to meet the famous Roman, whose role is well-known to the readers who have already enjoyed The Shadow, as well as other vampires who had been mentioned in the other novels of the series. 

International (vampire) politics and court intrigues will take the readers to Prague and to other fascinating locations as well... 

We have already experienced how dangerous the vampires of a single city -- such as Florence -- can be. Imagine what might happen when vampires from different parts of Europe fight and when their own survival is threatened by very powerful humans. 

When humans and vampires are at war, which side will Raven -- William York’s Cassita, a human who fell in love with a vampire but doesn’t want to become like him -- pick? 

And how can their love survive when her mortality and his immortality are bound to separate them?

Brave, faithful readers, get ready for adventures, scheming, fights and daring escapes!
