Publisher's Summary

The author of the Gabriel's Inferno Trilogy reveals a beautiful yet deadly underworld where creatures of the night roam and Gabriel and Julianne become the target of a powerful but elusive enemy...
Raven Wood spends her days at Florence's Uffizi gallery restoring Renaissance art. But an innocent walk home after an evening with friends changes her life forever. When she intervenes in the senseless beating of a homeless man, his attackers turn on her, dragging her into an alley. Raven is only semiconscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attackers' screams. Mercifully, she blacks out, but not before catching a glimpse of a shadowy figure who whispers to her...
Cassita vulneratus.
When Raven awakes, she is inexplicably changed. Upon returning to the Uffizi, no one recognizes her. More disturbingly, she discovers that she's been absent an entire week. With no recollection of her disappearance, Raven learns that her absence coincides with one of the largest robberies in Uffizi history - the theft of a set of priceless Botticelli illustrations. When the police identify her as their prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence's wealthiest and most elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets...

A romantic vampire love story

I wanted to get this book last year but put it off until closer to the release of book two. I'm so glad I did because it would have killed me to wait for the continuation of The Florentine. This was such a beautiful and romantic love story. Although it didn't end with a huge cliffhanger it did leave me wanting for more. Thanks goodness I have already per-ordered 'The Shadow'. John Morgan's narration was outstanding as well.

The Raven

Loved this book! SR has outdone himself with the first book in the Florentine series. This is a beautiful love story between two of the most unlikely lovers from different worlds who are brought together as a result of an unfortunate incident involving Jane "Raven" Wood and William York, the Prince of the vampire underworld of Florence who comes to her aid. Thanks to John Michael Morgan, narrator who's voice is music to my ears. I could listen to him narrate a story all day and all night long. hmmmmmm.
