Summary (cr: goodreads)

The unveiling of a set of priceless illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy at the Uffizi Gallery exposes the unsuspecting Professor Gabriel Emerson and his beloved wife, Julianne, to a mysterious and dangerous enemy.

Unbeknownst to the Professor, the illustrations he secretly acquired years ago were stolen a century earlier from the ruler of Florence’s underworld. Now one of the most dangerous beings in Italy is determined to reclaim his prized artwork and exact revenge on the Emersons, but not before he uncovers something disturbing about Julianne …

Set in the city of Florence, “The Prince” is a prequel novella to “The Raven,” which is the first book in the new Florentine Series Trilogy by Sylvain Reynard.

“The Prince” can be read as a standalone but readers of The Gabriel Series may be curious about the connection between The Professor’s world and the dark, secret underworld of “The Prince.” 
My Review: (also in goodreads)

Seems like Sylvain Reynard isn't finished with the Emersons just yet. Although I am not entirely sure if this happens after the events of Gabriel's Redemption. This is somewhat the transition from the beloved Emersons to a new protagonist (or antagonist? having their connection as the side story), an old underground society preparing for war. This novella piqued my curiosity for "The Raven". And of course having old ancient supernaturals is also a big factor (and I think the author loves all things Italian). Let's see if I will be as hooked in this series as I did in the previous one.

Till the next read...
