Warning! Mild spoilers below.
Fans have been following Raven and William since Sylvain Reynard began The Florentine series with The Raven. Sadly, its finally time to say goodbye to Florence and its beautiful history and art. Its also time for Raven and William to have their HEA.
Before Raven and William can have their HEA, they have to go through quite a number of dangerous obstacles Sylvain Reynard has prepared for them.
The Roman picks up right after the ending of The Shadow. Raven and her sister are being delivered to the Curia (a political/religious organization stationed in Rome with the goal of eradicating the world of all supernatural beings) as a trade for peace in Florence after the death of the Prince. Believing William has been killed, Raven is determined to protect her sister from the ones who are taking them to the Curia. Luckily, Raven and her sister are saved by William himself and thus both are reunited.
Unfortunately, not all their problems have been solved.
William needs to have his city back in order and wants to make peace with the Curia who want him to give up Raven to the Curia. If you know William then you should know that’s one thing he will not do. So in order to go against the political odds against him with the Curia, William must make an alliance with the most oldest and powerful vampyre: the Roman. However, as always in a suspenseful series like this not all things go as planned especially when one is betrayed.
Overall, The Roman was an excellent conclusion to the The Florentine series.
I really enjoyed it and I am going to miss reading novels about William and Raven because their love story is one of few to have been able to capture my heart. Its not everyday that you are able to find a relationship with a love so powerful and magical. This love changed William from the heartless vampyre to a one that would sacrifice everything for just one woman. This love also made Raven an even stronger woman than she was before. Correction. This love showed us what a fighter Raven is no matter what got in her way to happiness.
Yes…The Roman is a must read story and conclusion to a wonderful series.
So if you’ve read The Florentine series then do not think twice and go buy it once it is out.
