Cover Reveal: The Raven by Sylvain Reynard

From SR who brought us the Gabriel Series, we now have a new book to look forward to.

The Raven

Synopsis

From the New York Times best selling author of the Gabriel Series comes a dark, sensual tale of romance shrouded in mystery…

Raven Wood spends her days at Florence’s Uffizi Gallery restoring fine works of 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 semi-conscious when their assault is interrupted by a cacophony of growls followed by her attacker’s 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. She returns to the Uffizi, but no one recognizes her and more disturbingly, she discovers that she’s been absent an entire week. With no recollection of the events leading up to her disappearance, Raven also 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 baffled police force identifies her as its prime suspect, Raven is desperate to clear her name. She seeks out one of Florence’s wealthiest and elusive men in an attempt to uncover the truth about her disappearance. Their encounter leads Raven to a dark underworld whose inhabitants kill to keep their secrets…

Author Bio

I’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself. 

I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.

This book will have an early 2015 release date.

As SR mentioned in his September post (here), readers of Gabriel’s Redemption will be able to read an excerpt from The Raven at the end of both the paperback and e-book editions. But to hear the exciting news that he did NOT mention in that post, go to SR’s website here!

There is no release date for for The Raven yet, but SR and/or his trusty PR rep Nina (@ennbocci) hope to have one soon. According to SR, “This novel marks my transition from a contemporary love story to a paranormal one. I hope you’ll join me on this journey and that if you have friends and family who enjoy paranormal novels, you’ll help me share the news with them.”

And just a reminder (as if you need one!), December 3rd is the North American release date for Gabriel’s Redemption. US fans can enter a contest to win the novel on Goodreads here. There is also an exclusive excerpt and contest running on Romance Times here.
