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.

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 ending to the Florentine Series

I have loved The Florentine Series from the beginning, The Prince; The Raven; The Shadow & The Roman. In typical Sylvain Reynard fashion the story never got boring but The Roman had more twists and turns than I thought possible.
I was very saddened to learn of the passing of John Michael Morgan who narrated the The Raven & The Shadow (and the Gabriel Series) and was such a brilliant narrator but I have to say that Robertson Dean did a wonderful narration of The Roman.
All in all this was another great audiobook.
