Raven Wood spends her days at Florence's Uffizi gallery restoring Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semiconscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attackers' screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her . . .
When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. Upon returning to the Uffizi, no one recognizes her. More disturbingly, she discovers that she's been absent an entire week. With no recollection of her disappearance, Raven learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history--the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the police identify her as their prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence's wealthiest and most elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets . . .
Sylvain Reynard has done it again. If you liked Gabriel’s Inferno you are going to love The Raven. It is very well written and had me not wanting to put it down.
You meet the Prince in the book The Prince but you only get a snippet of him in there. You get the full effect in The Raven. This vamp is freaking hot. He is from the old school but he keeps up with his times. He is called the Prince because he is over the city of Florence. He is the go to guy for everything. Now this book can be read without reading The Prince but I would suggest not doing that because you get an insight before actually getting into the book. By the way he has a real name but I will let you read it to find it out.
Raven is a girl who is like every girl we know. She isn’t this little skinny minnie. She is voluptuous in the right parts that the Prince adores. She has a disability and she has every insecurity I think every other woman has about themselves. She is a fighter though. Her life wasn’t full of rainbows.
I am highly recommending this book to read. You will get lost in the story and will start begging the author for the next book.
I am giving this book 5 hearts.
