Review: The Shadow by Sylvain Reynard

From the New York Times bestselling 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… 

4 Stars!
The Raven is one of my favorite PR books of 2015 so of course I could not wait to cuddle up with The Shadow to get more of my favorite vampire prince. What can I say besides the fact that this installment is fan-freaking-tastic. William and Raven confessed those three little words in the conclusion of The Raven but their relationship is far from settled. Many threats are still laid out in their paths along with adjusting to their relationship.

The Shadow is a pulse pounding follow up with plenty of action, romance and sexy-time. Hard to believe but William grew more for me as a character with his devotion and love for Raven that kept me in a constant swoon-fest. As for Raven, her courageous and gentle nature is admirable and makes for a perfect heroine.

We are left with a cliffhanger but don’t let that sway you from reading this now. If anything, grab a copy and get lost with the prince and his cassita!
