REVIEW – GABRIEL’S PROMISE (Gabriel’s Inferno, #4) by Sylvain Reynard


Author Sylvain Reynard returns with the fourth installment of the bestselling Gabriel’s Inferno series.

When Gabriel and Julia Emerson first lay eyes on their newborn daughter, Clare, they realize life as they know it will never be the same. Gabriel has vowed to be a good father when he suddenly receives an invitation to give a series of lectures in Edinburgh, Scotland–an opportunity of high prestige–but that would mean leaving his wife and newborn child in Boston. Hesitant to bring it up, he keeps the opportunity from Julia as long as he can, not knowing she has a secret of her own.

When a frightening situation arises that threatens to break their new family apart, both parents must make sacrifices. With the family in danger, the looming question remains: Will Gabriel pursue his lectureship in Edinburgh, leaving Julia and Clare unprotected in Boston, or will he abandon the chance of a lifetime in order to ensure his family’s safety?

*****FOUR STARS*****

In the darkness of the hospital room, Gabriel resolved to protect, love, and care for his wife and his daughter, no matter the cost.

I still feel that books one and two are the best in this series. I may not have loved the plot of ”GABRIEL’S PROMISE”, but I still have so much love for Professor Emerson. He was the first professor that captured my heart and in this latest installment, Gabriel is still madly in love with Julia and completely devoted to his little family. His interactions with Clare are heartwarming. It just felt like the author threw way too many impossible challenges at Gabriel and Julia almost at the same time, and then he may have realized this and tried to resolve some of them without giving a real explanation. I think the health issues and huge career opportunities were enough to carry the story to the end. All the mystery and intrigue involving past enemies and possibly new ones was a bunch of unnecessary drama. Overall the writing as always was stellar, and I even found some of the Dante and Beatrice references interesting.

I’m hoping that the author will let Gabriel and Julia ride into the sunset to live happily ever after and end the series on a high note.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 3
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4
