Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sylvain Reynard returns with the fourth installment of the beloved 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 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 their new family, 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 vulnerable in Boston, or will he abandon the chance of a lifetime in order to ensure his family's safety?

Love Book 4... EXCEPT for new unanswered questions

I have to start with praise for Robertson Dean. After the sad loss of John Morgan, I wasn't sure that there would be another narrator who could properly capture the snobbery and snark that is Professor Emerson. This is my first narration by Robertson Dean, and I all I can say is very well done, sir! His narration was excellent, and his interpretation of Professor Emerson, Julia and all the other characters we know and love was both excellent and true to the first 3 books. I cannot recommend the narration more.

My issue is with the story. While I was very happy that Sylvain Reynard wrote this 4th book, I had been content with the completion of the trilogy. I felt all the characters' story arcs had completed quite satisfactorily. What this book did was provide me a lovely look into what happened next with the Emersons, but it also left me with quite the list of unanswered questions. Who is the new nemesis? The version of Paul who could be untrue is also disheartening. What happens there? I know that these books have been options to Passionflix for movies. Are the unanswered questions purposeful in order to create a need for more books to require more movies?

Do I recommend this book? Yes. Is it worth the credit? Yes. But go into it forewarned that you will not close the cover with a contented feeling of closure. I would not go as far as to say that there is a cliffhanger, but I would say it feels as though there is a missing chapter or two. Be on the look out for Gabriel 5.

Disappointed

I loved the first three books in Gabriel story and super excited to see Gabriel's Promise. The story was rushed and left unanswered questions. Hate I wasted a credit on this book. Unless Mr. Reynard is planning another installment this book was a wasted read.

it was ok.

didnt like the reader in this one. I know the original voice passed away but this voice was to raspy and I didnt like the voices he used for the other characters especially the women.

the story itself was ok. I felt like I kept waiting for something to happen but nothing did. it sounds like there will be another book. it was enjoyable but it could have been better. alot of unanswered questions with all the characters involved in this series..

Ugh

I love love love this series! However this book was not the same as the others, the passion was not the same, and Julia acting dumb and keeping her issues hidden from her husband made my skin crawl!!!! I wanted to strangle her! The book left a lot unexplained and open ended with no reassurance that there would be more to come however I have a strange feeling that is because the storyline does continue in The Raven but since I have not read it yet I can’t say for sure so all in all I loved the book only because I absolutely love Gabriel! ♥️♥️

There has to be another book following!

The ties/hints to The Prince and The Raven in this book have to be resolved.
I was so used to Mr. Morgan doing the narration, this narrator left me somewhat flat.
Loved the interaction between Gabriel and Claire. Julianne seemed to be still meek.
I look forward to another book!

Most anticipated!

I’m not going to lie it’s been so long since I've read the trilogy but it’s Gabriel so why not indulge in some hot sensual reading again, Reynard’s style.

Every chapter made me warm up for what was yet to come and everything Gabriel’s came back to me. And actually add a little more of what I was missing.

Gabriel as a dad. His devotion to Clare was perfect like all the songs he chose ;) Loved his devotion to Julia as well and what Julia accomplish.

Loved the sense of family.

Everyone joining in to ease all Gabriel’s and Julia's issues/troubles.

This book didn’t disappoint in therms of story, some things are still yet to tell.

Family priorities, work drama in the Dante world,

stalkers and sisterhood flamingos :) captivated me.

Had some good laughs as well.

I hope this is to be continued.

Thank you Sylvain Reynard for taking this journey for us

Horribly intimate

The story was very good. Remove the descriptions of love-making! Distasteful and a bit embarrassing to listen to

I miss the narrator from the first 3 books.

The story is pretty good, not as deep at the first books in the series. But I just cannot get behind this narration. His voice is too deep and ragged for my taste! just my opinion though!

Superb addition to The Gabriel Series!!!!

Gabriel is a new man. Beautiful story SR, Gabriel has embraced fatherhood. Juileanne has become even more fierce as a women, mother and student. The reaction to Flamingoes made me laugh out loud. I do hope we see the Emerson's again. A wonderful addition to this superb and outstanding book series.
