From the author of the New York Times best sellers Gabriel's Rapture and Gabriel's Inferno comes the epic conclusion to the captivating romantic trilogy.
Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he's confident that they can face any challenge. And he's eager to become a father.
But Julianne's graduate program threatens Gabriel's plans, as the pressures of being a student become all-consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation - research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel's darkest secrets.
In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.

I truly loved the emotions that emanated from Professor Emerson & Julianne. Also, how the author did a fantastic job tying up all the loose ends that remained in book 2. I also loved that in the end, Gabriel foresaw what the future held for them. I thought that was an important element for closure.
He brought the book to life! He has a wonderfully seductive voice that fits the character of Gabriel perfectly. However, I would have preferred a female narrator for Julianne's character.
Yes, it's a great book and a great series.
It stands on it's own, can't be compared is unique!
Great read, italian pronunciation is great, awesome job reading it.
This series already got a special place in my heart.
I was more than honored to have been able to read an ARC copy of the last installment of Gabriel’s Inferno Series by Sylvain Reynard.
This story has stuck with me since the very beginning, when just a few chapters had been written and started to follow it, impatiently waiting for the next chapter to be available. Then the first book was published; of course I got one of the first printed copies. My admiration for Sylvain Reynard and the books went beyond, I started re-reading Alighieri’s work after I firs read it in high school, with a different angle all together making it one of my interests today. I love that this series not only writes about a couple falling in love, but teach us about Alighieri’s and Botticelli’s work, SR also allows the readers to get to know other writers such as C.S. Lewis.
Gabriel’s Redemption is the perfect ending to a story so well written, a story that deserves a special place in contemporary romance. A must read for anyone and everyone. It’s kind of sad to let this story go, but I couldn’t be happier with how this last book wrapped it all up. I will be looking forward for some cameos of my favorite couple in SR’s next project “The Raven”
I don’t like spoilers so I’m just going to say that what each character faces in this part of the story will mark you forever. Gabriel and Julia’s life show us how people can overcome everything, the character might stumble, have setbacks but at the end you’ll find that every character get’s their own end in the story. How Gabriel finally confronts his demons and Julianne finds herself facing hers, teach us also that hope is what you should never lose, and as SR says “the greatest virtue isn’t charity; it’s hope”
Thank you SR for writing and sharing this wonderful story with all of us, I will forever be grateful for your friendship and will be always looking forward for the next adventure you want me to take. Enn thank you also for supporting SR and your friendship, for all your hard work in making this story reach more readers each day and for allowing me to help with whatever I can, this story deserves more readers and it has already gotten a permanent place in my heart and my library.
I cannot say enough of how wonderful a series presented by Reynard. A beautiful, refined love story steeped in literary ambiance, featuring well developed characters.
I plan on purchasing more books by Reynard.
Paranormal smut-loving freak!
It pains me to give this 3 Stars, and truthfully, I think I'm being generous. I loved Gabriel's Inferno and Gabriel's Rapture, but this third and final installment has forever altered my opinion of Gabriel and Julianne - and not in a good way! I have read other reviews stating that this book was not necessary, and I agree. While a good epilogue would have sufficed after Gabriel's Rapture, instead we have 15+ hours of ridiculous bickering followed by PG rated make-up sex - over and over again! I'm exhausted. Gabriel comes across as a pretentious drama queen and Julianne a whiney, selfish twit - both are two of the stupidest "smart people" ever! If you decide to delve into this one, be prepared for lots of eye rolls and "Are you f**cking kidding?!" moments.
I love this series of books. I just finished my third time through them. Love everything about them. Thank you Sylvain Reynard for a story about love, loss, and second chances. Simply amazing.
The most beautiful, passionate, Invigorating ,I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this book. This was the Best series I have ever read and heard. Thank You!! Also Thanks for naming the baby after me;)
I dream about you wide awake in my arms It’s the last time I sleep alone dreaming of you in my arms I’ll kiss you every day & every night
Loved loved loved this book, the Professor came a long way and came with love, grace and hope :)
I appreciate how the author didn't always take the expected path in scenes. When we think something could lead to a conflict or misunderstanding and then it's not or like at the end of a chapter
it terminates a sentence with a word that in the next chapter or paragraph it's in a completely different context in a different character's opinion, did you notice that?
I feel this story could be real.
Life isn't perfect, not everything works. We grow up with our issues and outside problems that come and go, we try to adjust, isn't easier to follow our dreams as a married couple. But what's important, like family, love and hope, will help you get through anything.
This book made me laugh with all the snarky remarks and the Superman story and the Clark Kent glasses! :D
(Parenthetically writing: Did you know I always imagine the male character has the actual Superman actor Henry Cavill :) He is always the male, the alpha male in my readings... so in this book Gabriel is perfect and actually Superman :) that made me laugh out loud!)
Definitely the best book of 2013 in my shy reading, I didn't read a lot! But I will re-read it!
Thank you Sylvain Reynard!
I recommend reading all the three books more than once!
Now to the Florentine Series, must read/listen!
The story and character development is so well-written.I especially liked the narration by John Michael Morgan. I really enjoy narrators who put so much feeling and emotion into the words. I've listened to this trilogy many times and love this story.
