      *****FOUR STARS*****Netgalley ARC(BR with Mel)"I like the way you feel. I like discovering new things about your body--how you react to my touch, to my kiss, to my body when it's inside yours.

    2. The second book in 'The Florentine' series, 'The Shadow' continues the story of William and Raven. After a brief separation, the two find their way back to each other, despite their obvious differences. Finally being honest about his feelings, William and Raven seem to have found happiness in their relationship, only to have William's responsibilities as the prince wreak havoc on their lives.Perhaps it is just me, but this time around the storyline seemed a little flat to me. Don't get me wrong, [...]

    3. 4.5 StarsThe Shadow opens with an uninterrupted timeline from The Raven as William and Raven are committed to each other wholeheartedly. There isn’t anything William won’t do for his Cassita and when he promised to give the gift of vengeance for her past, he takes his oath seriously.

    5. The Shadow is the second installment in Sylvain Reynard's The Florentine series. There is so much world building going on in this continuation. I found it very informative about the history and structure of the vampire world. In my perspective, some parts were dry but there was plenty to keep me engaged and eager for the next installment, such as romance, action/suspense, vengeance, betrayal, and some family drama of the human variety. The Shadow was a likable continuation in my opinion and I pl [...]

    7. The Shadow is a lush, passionate and complex story, filled with romance, art, history and suspense. I am not a huge fan of paranormal stories but I make an exception for Sylvain Reynard’s books. I LOVE the Gabriel’s Redemption series and Professor Gabriel Emerson makes an appearance here. What more could you ask for?William and Raven are reunited in this story but William is battling forces who are trying to sabotage him. He has finally found the love of his life and he wants nothing more th [...]

    8. Raven and William continue their passionate relationship in The Shadow, but there are things brewing in the background that become front and center by the end of the book. One of the things I like best about this series is Raven and William’s romance. There’s never a question about their love, they’re completely devoted to one another to the point of obsession. No worries of a third party causing doubts here. Instead of looking for their own gain, both Raven and William are selfless in the [...]

    9. The Prince, The Raven & The Shadow connect our beloved Gabriel Series to Sylvain's new paranormal Florentine Series.YOU NEED TO READ THE RAVEN BEFORE READING THE SHADOW!And if you haven't already, read THE PRINCE first and before that The Gabriel Trilogy!!! ☺This 3rd book starts with a little time travel - we see how William lost his first love many 100 years ago :(Then we go visit the Emersons - to kill them?No, he promised Raven not to hurt them.but he'll have a little talk with Gabriel.

    10. “Here is a feast for my senses as well as my heart.”Well, what can I say that I haven’t said before? Honestly. Hands down my favourite book in this series which once more truly showcased the brilliance of Sylvain Reynard’s writing. This Author has always had a moving and striking way with words and once more I was amazed at the perfection and beauty. It’s not just words; it’s poetry – it’s listening to a song whilst the heart beats in tandem to the tune – furiously thumping its [...]

    11. As always, Sylvain Reynard never fails to mesmerized me with his words. I love the way he tells a story with a delicate of history and romance in it. It's amazing and consistent. The Shadow is one of the books I'm excited to dive in this year. I'm eager to know what happens on William York and Raven Wood's story "I'm not a good man. I'm not a good man at all. But I love you and my love is certainly steadfast." The story starts on what's left on The Raven wherein William York is about to give Rav [...]

    13. Despite my best intentions, my review for The Shadow is a year overdue. This is a book I’ve thought about a lot over the months, knowing my review would be wholly focused on William York. After reading The Prince and The Raven, I had hopes that The Shadow would be pivotal in helping me to figure out the mysterious Prince of Florence once and for all. When I read The Prince, William’s visits to Santa Maria Novella and the Spanish Chapel stood out in my memory as a great opportunity to study h [...]

    14. One of my favorite books of 2015 was The Raven, the first book in this series. I have loved every book by Sylvain Reynard that I’ve read, and he continues to amaze me with his beautiful writing. I was beyond grateful and excited to receive an advanced copy of the second book in the series, but honestly I was hesitant to dive into it immediately. I always worry that the next book in a series, by one of my favorite authors, may not live up to my high expectations. I was nervous and put off start [...]

    17. What an absolute pleasure it was for me to read The Shadow by Sylvain Reynard. As much as I enjoyed the first book, The Raven, this second installment was just that much richer and bolder. I think it was also better because I felt a stronger bond and affinity with the characters. You can read the rest of my review here: bookishtemptations/2016/02

    18. La verdad fue un poco decepcionante Esperaba más de este libro.Me encantó la trilogía del Infierno de Gabriel. Esta nueva serie, no me esta gustando tanto. Por un lado, en este libro, sus apariencias se sienten forzadas. Además, no creo que haya mucha química entre Raven y William. No es suficiente para justificar todo el drama que los rodea de todos modos. Algunas historias / razones simplemente se sienten demasiado superficiales.La escritura de Reynard sigue siendo la misma y aunque la di [...]

    19. Reread 2018: still as good upon reread. I cannot wait to get to book 3 and finally see how this series ends!Ahhhh so good!!! I can't wait for the third book!! I'm glad I wasn't let down by this one like I was by the second book in Gabriel's series.

    20. Such a great story! So passionate and sensual as well as action packed!William and Raven are such interesting characters. There is a great amount of passion between these two and they have a remarkable connection. It's breathtaking, romantic, and exciting. There were some ups and downs and bits of drama and emotion. I found it all very captivating. It's a wonderfully written story, almost lyrical in a way as the words flow, drawing you in.I loved learning Williams background and about his change [...]

    21. Full Review to come closer to release. This is a book for lovers of complex characters and paranormal suspense. It explores the moralistic ideals of good versus evil, and the transformative effects of love and hope. Now I just need to trim my review that has turned into a thesis on vampirism. My William, the Prince of Florence ARC was provided by the publisher.

    22. PHENOMENAL!!!! I literally could not put this book down and AHHH!!!More review to come!!!I am not even sure where to begin this reviewI truly love anything Sylvain Reynard creates. His Gabriel Inferno's series was amazing and when I heard he was going to step in to the paranormal genre, I was beyond ecstatic.So, as I dove in to The Raven--getting the opportunity to meet these intriguing characters--I was immediately hooked.I read The Raven right before reading The Shadow and for two straight boo [...]

    23. A sensual and gripping continuation of William and Raven's love story. The passion and intrigue flowed so easily with every turn of the page. This engrossing romance plays out like a movie in my head and fascinates me to no end. SR's lyrical prose keeps me enthralled and consumes all my thoughts while taking me on a spellbinding journey filled with romance, passion, emotion, and suspense. I needed William and Raven's happily ever after like I needed my next breath. I'm counting down the days unt [...]

    24. FGMAMTC Blog Review4.5 starsI really liked The Raven, but for me, The Shadow is even better. The plot picks up exactly where it left off. If you enjoyed the art and history intermingled with vampire fantasy and carnal desire featured in The Raven, you're in for more of the same depth. Features that I didn't notice as much from the first book but loved in this one mostly include the action and twists. There is a war brewing. The reader has to try to deduce who is bad or good. Also, several little [...]

    25. THE SHADOW is the second book in the Florentine series but really, it should actually be considered a continuation series of Gabriel Emerson. While I have no problem knowing that this is a spin off series, my real issue with this series so far is the fact that the author is still grounding this entire series on past characters. I enjoyed Gabriel and his wife but their story has come to a beautiful end. This Florentine series marks a change in several areas of Reynard’s writing. This is suppose [...]

    26. Dang, this series just keeps getting better and better! <3Literally squealed when I saw there was a third book.

    27. The Shadow, brings so much more to this great series! Along with a beautiful continuation of the love story of Prince William and his Cassita, Raven, ahhh, we get conflicts that lay a great foreboding in the principality, building up to The Roman. Thank you, Sylvain Reynard! To quote Raven describing William in chapter eight, this book is both beautiful and terrible! There is so much beauty in Sylvain Reynard's writing. He gives so many meaningful scenes, with hope and longing being strong. SR's [...]

    28. SR has done it again with his new release of The Shadow! I've followed him along with the other muses of Argyle Empire through Sylvain Reynard's Gabriel Series, to The Prince Novella that bridges his series, and now through The Raven and The Shadow of The Florentine Series and can't wait for the final installment planned thus far. I truly loved getting to know the dark Prince of Florence, William York in this book and seeing him evolve and reawaken parts of himself that were dormant before he me [...]
