Blog Tour & Book Review: Gabriel's Redemption (Gabriel's Inferno #3) by Sylvain Reynard

Gabriel's Redemption
(Gabriel's Inferno Series, Bk #3)
By Sylvain Reynard

Blurb:
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.

Viviana's Review:
The third and final installment in the "Gabriel's Inferno Series" has been on my WANT TO READ list from the moment it was announced! Though a third book was never originally intended, readers fell in love with Gabriel's and Julie's story and requested more! Thankfully, Mr. Reynard obliged!
A beautifully written story that captures the heart and soul! Mr. Reynard's writing style is lovely and the story flows beautifully! I stated in my review of "Gabriel's Rapture" that Mr. Reynard "has a way of describing a scene, a location, an item with great detail and feelings yet, it doesn't feel overly done. You don't get that "Alright, enough already! I get it! It's BEAUTIFUL!" thought or feeling while reading. You can almost picture it, as if you were watching a movie or actually there! Needless to say that many of the locations have been added to my "Must Visit" list!" This is holds true in "Gabriel's Redemption as well!

It's great to see how Gabriel and Julia deal with things as they come up and some not so new things that pop back into their lives. They are now married and have lots of new and exciting things going on for each of them. They both have learned from their past mistakes and have continued to grow as individuals and now as a married couple. Julia is more mature and has found her voice. Gabriel has changed the most! He's not the same angry man he was in the first book. Oh, no worries, he is still very much the Alpha Male but he has learned that caveman tendencies only go so far. LOL.

One of the things I love about the characters is that they are not perfect! Each and everyone one have their flaws and obstacles/hurtles to over come. Neither Gabriel and Julia are perfect nor is one better set up as a individual. They each have unique characteristics and they don't fall into the cookie cutters of characters as some other do.

Another awesome thing about "Gabriel's Redemption" is well, it's stated in the blurb "several individuals from their past appear...". We get additional insight and info on some of the other characters such as Paul! I do love Paul! From the very beginning I loved him! This of course means that some not so good individuals have also returned or reentered their lives as well. Sigh, you'll have to read it to know how it all turned out.

A great conclusion to a fantastic series! While I'm sad to see the series end, I'm perfectly happy how everything played out. I'm sure this will not be the last we get to hear from Gabriel and Julia. I'm sure Mr. Reynard will visit with them sooner or later and share with us!!

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.
