My Review:

Review also posted on Goodreads

We have reach the final chapter of William York and Raven Wood’s story as they face new threats that can endanger their lives. Raven and her sister, Cara, are with the Florentine vampires as they’re bound to Rome to meet The Curia, giving them as a peace offering. It’s unknown if William is alive or a new Prince has taken over Florence. The safest option right now is to be with Father Kavanaugh. However, William is alive and he’ll not allow anyone to take his lover, Raven, away from him. She is his hope and light to his darkness.

William decided to seek The Roman’s advice and asked him for alliance / support. It’s risky to deal with the most powerful, ruthless ruler of Italy. He’s the one who made William a vampire. At the beginning, I’m wary about The Roman. I knew he is unreliable and can’t be trusted. This battle put our main characters in a vulnerable situation. Saving the city and Raven at the same time seems impossible. This war can destroy them. Both alliances and betrayals happened but one thing is for sure, Raven and William are in this together. Life or death till the end.

What a great conclusion for The Florentine series and I’m amazed once again to Sylvain Reynard’s writing style. His stories have depth and well written. It’s filled with heartwarming, passion and love. The characters are lovable and well developed. Raven, despite of her physical disability, she remained loyal, brave and selfless. William is swoon worthy, brilliant, loving and thoughtful. These two shared a lot of intimate moments and downfalls, it’s wonderful to see they got a happy ending. However, I feel like it’s a cop out because of these reasons:

Despite of my sentiments, it’s still a great conclusion. I guess I’m just conflicted.

  1. It has been a while since I’ve had my cup of hot passionate love story because I’ve been into funny and cheesy stories at the moment haha! I like vampires but I think it’ll be a while until I get back into these kind of books, but I’ll keep this series in mind. Thanks for reviewing Bea! Happy holidays! 🙂
