From the New York Times bestselling author of the Gabriel trilogy comes the highly anticipated conclusion to The Shadow, a sensual novel set in Florence featuring the dangerously intoxicating coupling of Raven and William…
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.

Angy’s Review: 5+++ Stars
I don’t think I’ve ever waited so anxiously for a book like I waited for The Roman. For the last 10 months I wondered what would happen to Raven, to William and to Florence. For the longest 10 months of my life, I wondered if Raven’s own salvation was to be turned into a Vampyre by nobody else but The Roman. And for 10 months I dreaded the end of the series, because The Florentine Series hit my heart when William stole back his precious illustrations, it hit my soul when Raven risked everything to protect her friend from those bastards at the bridge, and it hit my everything when William and Raven opened their hearts and showed why they both were extraordinaire individuals but perfect together.
Now, with The Roman, i don’t know if there was something left to hit, but it definitely felt like it hit my entire being. The conclusion for the series was perfect. There was romance, erotism, love. Of course there was the trouble with all the Principalities and Kingdom of Vampyres in Italy with The Curia, and there was the ultimate sacrifice Raven and William were capable to make to save each other and who and what they care about the most. The whole story kept me glued to this book for one day and a half. I literally devoured it. I felt like my eyes were on fire reading as fast as they could because I needed to know what was going to happen. And the moment came and I started crying like a lunatic, and when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore, the unexpected happened and I was never more grateful this novel was paranormal, because literally ANYTHING COULD HAPPENED.
All in all, The Roman was AMAZING, just like the entire series. I am so satisfied with the conclusion of the story, with the twists and twists with all these complicated characters and the beautiful writing that made everything more interesting and incredible.
I need more books like The Roman. I need more series like The Florentine. I need more book boyfriends like William. I need more heroines as perfect as Raven. But most of all, I need more authors as talented and creative as Sylvain Reynard.
