Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Gabriel trilogy comes the hotly anticipated follow-up to The Raven, a sensual novel set in Florence featuring the dangerously intoxicating coupling of Raven and William....

Raven Wood's vampyre prince has returned, pledging his love and promising justice for every wrong done to her. In the wake of their reunion, Raven is faced with a terrible decision - allow the prince to wreak vengeance against the demons of her past or persuade him to stay his hand. But there is far more at stake than Raven's heart....

A shadow has fallen over the city of Florence. Ispettor Batelli will not rest until he uncovers Raven's connection to the theft of the priceless art from the Uffizi Gallery. And while the prince hunts a traitor who sabotages him at every turn, he finds himself the target of the vampyres' mortal enemy.

As he wages a war on two fronts, he will need to keep his love for Raven secret or risk exposing his greatest weakness....

This edition only - includes exclusive bonus material from Gabriel's Inferno.

Another swoon-worthy listen

The Shadow is a passionate and complex story, filled with romance, art, history and suspense. William and Raven are reunited again and the Prince will stop at nothing to protect her all while battling forces that are trying to sabotage him and his rule over Florence. I absolutely loved this 2nd installment of The Florentine Series even though it was a little slow in the middle. We finally get to learn how William came to be and the tragedy of how he lost his first love. The last part of the book was filled with lots of heart pounding action and of course it ends in a bit of a cliffhanger. I can’t wait for the next book.

Magnificent !!

What made the experience of listening to The Shadow the most enjoyable?

This audiobook is great . Usually when I purchase a new book , I listen and read at the same time. After that I just listen. The history and excellent sub plots are six stars. I would read too fast and would pause to allow audio book to caugh up. Prince not as unreasonable as in RAVEN, he is almost kind. I need to go back to Florence.

Any additional comments?

A must read. Great follow up to Raven.

Casual listening! It’s been good for painting my house. Don’t care for the explicit sex sense tho.
Planning on the next series!

Held my rapt attention for the duration

The reading was exquisite! The story unforgettable! Sylvain Reynard is one of my all-time favorite authors and he found the perfect narrator for his stories in John Michael Morgan. I can’t wait to continue the story with the reading of The Roman.

Outstanding

Would you consider the audio edition of The Shadow to be better than the print version?

Both amazing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shadow?

The Prince sending Raven away.

Have you listened to any of John Michael Morgan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

All beautiful done.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me fall in love with Sylvain's writing even more.

Any additional comments?

Waited what seemed like forever for this book but it was so worth it. Another beautifully written story with many twists and turns. The Prince/William and Raven's relationship is everything to both of them, above everything else and all that what to come between them. Plot includes intrigue, murder, action, romance, tenderness and traitorism are all here. Now to wait for the next book.
