About the book:
From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Gabriel’s Rapture and Gabriel’s Inferno comes the epic conclusion to the captivating romantic trilogy.

Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.

But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation—research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.

In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.

My Thoughts:
What a perfect end to a series that I love.  Sylvain Reynard's writing is beautiful and he exceeded my expectations in this final installment to the Gabriel's Inferno series.

This is an incredibly romantic and thoughtful read.  The common struggles Gabriel and Julia go through as a newly married couple were written in such a realistic way that I felt every emotion and every feeling they experienced.  That's what I love most about SR's writing - his ability to make me feel SO many emotions while I read each book in this series.  His words are so powerful and touching.

Gabriel is an amazing, loving man and his Julia is so kind and compassionate.  It is impossible not to fall in love with them and their beautiful love story.  Although there is some minor drama to keep you in suspense throughout the book, it's in a non-frustrating way that I approved of.  I loved how SR incorporated chapters about other important characters in this story - it was a great way to wrap up the lives of everyone who played an important part in the series.

I can't express enough how much I adored this series, and I'm sad for it to come to an end.  Gabriel & Julia will always hold a special place in my heart as one of my all time favorite couples.  Their love story is beautiful and a must read!
I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book:

"Every night when I fall asleep with her in my arms, I thank God she's mine.  Every morning when I wake up, my first thought is that I'm grateful she married me.  I will never be worthy of her.  But I spend every day trying my damnedest."

About the Author:
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.
