The Raven The Florentine #1Appearance Raven also 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 baffled police force identifies her as its prime suspect Raven is desperate to clear her name She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth about her disappearance Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secret The Raven is the first installment in Sylvain Reynard's The Florentine series It is marketed as a paranormal romance and it is but it is also full of art mystery Italian culture historyall with a gothic undertone that melds everything together beautifully As the story progressed the focus became centered on the romance which disappointed me just a bit as I was really enjoying how the other elements were proportioned but the vampirehuman dynamic was not your typical paranormal romance It was complex and written with a sophistication that I appreciated or maybe that was the audiobook's delicious accent Overall a great start to an intriguing new series for me I'll definitely be continuing My favorite uote “No one deserves mercy Not deserving it is what makes it mercy”Note In my opinion The Florentine series stands on its own for new readers and will feel like a companion series of sorts for fans of Mr Reynard's Gabriel's Inferno trilogy as it features cameos and references to those characters However when I read The Raven I had only read the first installment in Gabriel's Inferno and I never felt confused or out of the loop Below I included a list of both series for any interested readers EnjoyThe Florentine Series#05 The Prince 2015#1 The Raven 2015#2 The Shadow 2016#3 The Roman 2016Gabriel's Inferno Trilogy#1 Gabriel's Inferno 2011#2 Gabriel's Rapture 2012#3 Gabriel's Redemption 2013
