Publisher's Summary

Raven and her sister, Cara, are at the mercy of a small detachment of Florentine vampyres who are delivering them as a peace offering to the feared Curia in Rome. Though she's unsure William survived the coup that toppled his principality, Raven is determined to protect her sister at all costs, even if it means challenging Borek, the commander of the detachment. In an effort to keep Raven from falling into the hands of his enemies, William puts himself at the mercy of the Roman, the dangerous and mysterious vampyre king of Italy. But the Roman is not what he expects.

Alliances and enmities will shift and merge as William struggles to save the woman he loves and his principality without plunging the vampyre population into a world war. This stunning conclusion to the Florentine series will take listeners across Italy and beyond as the lovers fight to remain together...forever.

Excellent Conclusion To Florentine Saga!!

Great ending for William and Raven. Even great ending for Gaberiel and Julianne. Listening and Reading at the same time, the printed book was very different from audiobook, phrases changed, some sentences omitted. Audiobook better. The richness of the literature and history of Florence, Geneva, Prague, and other cities sighted in audiobook was very enjoyable. Love the cariture devolvement as spane over four books, some lovable, some pure evil, some a little of both. A must read. New narrator was fair needs to know the correct pronunciation of Beatrice.

Sylvain Reynard is my new favorite author

I loved it. I still feel like there should be more to their story. I hope Sylvain will give us more of William and Raven's story. My emotions were ALL over the place. I'll definitely listen again. I gave an earlier bad review of the narrator at which I am correcting now. I recently very sadly found out that John Michael Morgan, the previous narrator of the Gabriel's Inferno and The Florentine series had passed away before he could narrate The Roman. I unfairly gave Robertson Dean a bad review simply because he wasn't John Morgan. As I relistened, I began to enjoy listening to him without the irritation I had before. I realized I'd been very unfair.

Performer

A series is better when the same performer is used for the whole series. Did not like this performer who read the story…
Most likely will read audio version and get hard copy

AWESOME NOVEL 💯♥️🌹🌟

The Florentine novels are very Entertaining and the Best Vampire Romance I've listened too 💯x9 👏🌟🌹♥️📚🤗
Each character demonstrated their strength in different ways. The Prince, the most Powerful vampire took the forefront as a leader and adversary to those whom he ruled. He's also a Gentleman, Lover/Husband, Stratagist and your worst enemy (if anyone ever crossed him). Loved the Romance between William & Raven 💯♥️
Bora Bora 🏖⛵🌊🐬 Awesome Novels!!!!
Looking forward to listening to the next audio "The Man in the Black Suit" ✍☕📖

Just my opinion -

Book 1 and 2 “5 stars” great stories and side characters I liked and wanted to know more about...

I usually do not like to leave a negative review-but the ending was very so so for me...

It gave a conclusion for the story-but I feel with how Book 1&2 went -I was just let down and I did not like what happened with the main character in the end-but that’s just my opinion

Loved it

I loved this book couldn't put it down. Raven and her sister Cara are being taken by vampires to the Curia to show that they want peace. William and Aoibhe started to fight their way out of being executed. When William reached Raven and Cara they went to Rome to asked for their help with the Curia. William and Raven and Cara went back to Florence after speaking to the Roman and William was again the prince. When Ibarra killed someone and put him on display for everyone to see, the Romans sent an ordered for William to sent Raven to him. William made a deal with the Curia to be changed back to human against Raven's plead, but when the exercism was complete William was dead.

A series saved

With the passing of the previous narrator I went into this audiobook blind. The performance given does justice to both the work and his predecessor. Bravo. An interesting conclusion to the series.

Great story

Another fantastic story by Sylvain Reynard, this time paranormal which is a first for me and what a great introduction it was. It is also a love story and in typical Sylvain Reynard fashion is very tastefully told.
Robertson Dean brilliantly narrates The Roman picking up from the late John Michael Morgan.
