I'm not the Paranormal Maven around here. That title goes to Marissa; but I am a huge fan of Sylvain Reynard. SR has a remarkable gift for storytelling and can bring the story to life with his beautiful prose. The Prince is a perfect bridge between the Gabriel Trilogy and the the new Florentine series. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

When it comes to paranormal, I am a tough customer. You've got to really dazzle me to snag me. But, having enjoyed The Gabriel Trilogy, I found myself with a copy of The Prince and some time to kill. So here we are on the other side, and I think….

I’m still not a paranormal girl…

The snobby prose that I found charming in Gabriel, didn’t charm me as much in The Prince. The main character of the story seems to be... Italy? The cover is... is that the vampire dad from Twilight?... Then all the brooding paranormal things of paranormality… I don't know. Dazzled? Meh. However, The Prince is an essential bridge between Gabriel and the new Florentine series, and I’m still curious enough to continue on and give The Raven a chance.

Bottom line: If you are a fan of mysterious grudge-holding vampires, Italy, and using your dictionary, you will probably love The Prince. (3-1/2 stars) [January 2015]

The unveiling of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante's Divine Comedy at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence exposes Professor Gabriel Emerson and his beloved wife, Julianne, to a mysterious enemy.

Now one of the most dangerous beings in the city is determined to reclaim his prize and exact his revenge on the Emersons--but not before he uncovers something disturbing about Julianne...
