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.”

Sylvain Reynard gives us, his readers what we crave, an intriguing storyline, an enigmatic new character, and some more time with our beloved Professor. 

The imagery alone is enough to make one believe in the Supernatural, enough to make one long to be part of the Underworld of Florence.

Who knew SR would be a master in this genre as well?   THIS GIRL!!!  THAT’S WHO!!! 🙂 He could write the ingredients to tooth paste and have me swooning… I hope he continues to give us romantic books, swoony heroes, and happily ever afters.



“Darkness shrouded the city he loved, like a blanket. He felt it wrap tightly around him, feeding his pride.”


“Her husband was reclining on the bed, shirtless, clad only in his favorite pair of worn, faded jeans.”
