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.

The Roman by Sylvain Reynard Full Review by MJ Once upon a time a Canadian author invited us to join him in a very exciting, but dangerous journey, to a world created by his fantastic imagination. We packed our bags and on January 15, 2015, we visited for the first time the Underworld of the city of Florence in "The Prince." Little we knew then what Sylvain Reynard had in mind for us because, as he mentioned in a Facebook chat a week ago, it was all part of the plan. He always knew how he wanted William and Raven’s story to end. And I can’t feel any happier of the conclusion of their story in "The Roman." If you want to know what “the plan” was all along, you will have to read The Roman! For those who haven’t read the Florentine Series, now’s the time. Ask Santa to get you all the books, and witness the powerful and transcendent love story of the most improbable lovers. Two lovers who found in each other hope. Their differences only complimented each other to become a better version of themselves. Raven and William are soulmates, and their love is breathtakingly and beautifully penned through the Florentine Series. No matter if you’re a new reader, or you’ve been reading his stories for a while, I believe we all agree: Sylvain Reynard never disappoints. After seven books, I think it's safe to say his writing style drags you into a magical and unforgettable world. A world that once you get to experience, you don't want to let go. As always, in “The Roman,” you'll end up wanting more. Will it always be this way? Always wanting more of these fascinating stories? I believe so. I also believe there’s more to say in this story. Our hero and heroine deserve more, and we definitely aren’t ready to let them go for good. Raven starts a new journey at the end of the book that I’d love see in more detail and be part of it. I love character growth because we can learn so much from it. And in SR’s hands, we can rest assured, we’ll find the wisdom and hope that sometimes we so desperately look for. Thus, I’m really hoping for a fourth book in the future. The Roman is a fast-paced story full of action, angst, betrayal, sacrifice, unconditional and powerful love, a burning passion, renewed hope, and redemption! Unexpected plot twists will surprise you here and there. Every word, every scene, takes you into an emotional roller coaster so deep, that it’ll get under your skin like a tattoo and stay in your mind like an indelible mark. You'll never be the same after reading stories as profound as Sylvain Reynard's. His poetic and flawless writing style is a pure delight to all your senses. The character's development through the series is simply moving and incredibly well-developed. William is the lover we all dream for, and Raven deserves someone like William, someone who admires and worships her as he does. His Cassita will fly in so many ways, and his love for her will spread her wings to soar. William’s love for Raven will break your defenses, too. It’s inevitable to not fall for William York. But life isn’t perfect, and to live a love like this has a price to pay … Will they be willing to defend their love against all odds? From all SR's books in both series, in my opinion, this is his best work so far. Simply fascinating. My admiration and most sincere congratulations to Sylvain Reynard. I'm in awe and completely blown away by this story. Raven and William will always be part of me. I give The Roman a gazillion of stars. Perfe

This book wraps the series up in a wonderful way. Nothing is really left hanging, but there's room for more if the author ever chooses to continue. I love the way The Florentine books show historical people, places and art. Artwork is a major focal point throughout The Roman as it was in the others. With vampyres, battles and life or death situations, it still takes time to appreciate the beauty of the visual arts. I like how the idea of vampyres is approached differently in this book. The connection to religion makes it stand out from any other stories I've read. I also love how the goal isn't to become a beautiful, perfect immortal. Actual substance means so much more than outward appearance. The love is epic and felt deeply. I recommend The Roman for sure, but you will have to read the previous books first.

Have been a fan since SR was on fan fiction. This series compliments Gabriel's Inferno so well. Raven and William are great characters with wonderful personal journeys. Filled with love and sacrafice and beleif in a higher power. Loved every moment on the page!Can't wait to see what happens next. I would love to see more from this world.
