Sylvain Reynard – Gabriel Series Reading Order

by Maryse on October 15, 2012 · 30 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

What our fellow readers are saying (Gabriel’s books are so often recommended and he is so very loved!!):

Annie: OK – dying to know what you think of this book – I absolutely loved it and the next one as well – Gabriel’s Rapture.

Jo:  I now have another man in my life Professor Gabriel Emerson, he’s a well respected Dante specialist by day, but boy does he have a dark side.

Jeannie: I am a little over halfway through Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard, and it is amazing!!! Seeing the types of books you have recommended (and are now on my pile of TBR), I think this is definitely one you should try.

Cindy: Have you read Gabriel’s Inferno?  He reminds me of Christian!

About book #1:

Enigmatic and attractive, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a man tortured by his past. Though he takes great pride in his prestigious role as a Dante specialist, he knows he is a magnet for sin, especially lust.

When the virtuous Julia Mitchell joins his graduate seminar at the University of Toronto, she alters their lives irrevocably. Through their connection, Gabriel begins a journey that forces him to unravel the mysteries of their past entanglement, as well as face his many demons.

A sinful exploration of sex, love, and redemption, “Gabriel’s Inferno” is a beguiling intelligent romance filled with intrigue, seduction and forgiveness. Told through witty, dark humor, the narrator relates a captivating tale of Gabriel’s odyssey through the Inferno.


Here’s a tidbit from the author about book #3:

“I was determined that Rapture would be the final book. But as time went on and I received message after message asking for more about the Professor and Julianne, I began to contemplate what a third novel would entail.

Then, one morning I began to write …
So I’m pleased to tell you, the readers, that the third book is in progress and it’s being written for you in response to your messages. Thank you for your continued support of me and my writing. I look forward to sharing the novel with you.”

I read the first two this past summer. I am a fan I didn’t know that there was going to be a third book. I thought there was closure with the second book. Any idea where the plot will go?

Maryse November 28, 2012 at 3:03 PM

Hi Amy! Sylvain said this one his Facebook page on October 31st: “There isn’t a release date yet. I’m still writing. But hopefully, we’ll know more soon, SR”

Trina December 10, 2012 at 9:00 PM

So excited for book 3. What is everyone reading now…I am looking for something similar…I have read Fifty Shades and Bared to you (both),and a couple of other random books. Any suggestions?

Guerlande December 12, 2012 at 9:49 AM

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy reading those books, I made a mistake by reading the “Rapture” first before the “infeno” and I had to read them again , so I can honestly tell you I read the books four time and i’m going to read them again and again

I can tell my favorite parts its when Gabriel wouldn’t make love to Julianne until they’re married.
I am looking forward to read another book , but i would like it to be as wonderful as Gabriel Infeno and Gabriel Rapture if you can have a third book that would be nice too. And I can’t believe a man wrote this wonderful love story

Guerlande December 12, 2012 at 9:52 AM

So there is gong to be a third book

Amy January 5, 2013 at 8:03 AM

so does anyone know yet when the 3rd book is going to be released because ive been waiting ages now !!

tt January 5, 2013 at 9:41 AM

I just finished Gabriel’s inferno and Gabriel’s rapture in three days. I am hooked. I could not put the book down. After reading The 50 shades series, nothing compared until I read Sylvain’s books. I can’t wait for the third book. It was so well written. Thanks for continuing Gabriel’s and Julianne’s story.

selmich January 7, 2013 at 9:18 AM

So when is book # 3 going to be released?

Maryse January 7, 2013 at 1:34 PM

As of December 10th 2012 this was the author’s latest update (on his Facebook fan page):

“At this time, I don’t have a release date or an official title.”

*sigh* ;)

Courtney January 16, 2013 at 5:08 PM

did you ever review Gabriel’s rapture? I have read it but I like to read your reviews anyway :)

Nicole Estes January 17, 2013 at 7:40 PM

I’m heart broken that I finished the second book. Feel such a tragic mourning for fictitious characters. I could not put the first or second book down. Even have coworkers reading them. Please please please get #3 book out!

Hazeldene January 21, 2013 at 12:39 AM

If you like the books, then listen to the audio! The narrator has a luscious, mellow Canadian voice that is so easy to listen to. Listening to the delicious words flow so smoothly is just devine listening. I am about to finish the audio of Gabriel’s Rapture for the second time, having read the books ( and the original fanfic) twice. It is such an intelligent, articulate story. Love it Love it, and it certainly encourages me to walk twice a day so I can listen on my ipod. Can’t wait for book three, but meanwhile I will start again listening to Gabriel’s Inferno. My very favourite series.

Gwen Evans January 23, 2013 at 11:32 PM

Love, Love, Loved both books. Great transitions. “Gabriel” has fueled my love even more for Renaissance Art and Artist. The series are hot and sizzling for the imagination…I love the trip to Florence, the parallel between Gabriel, Julie, Dante and Breatrice Botticelli and his muse La Bella Simonetta . Brilliant! Hope book three tells what happens to that snake Christa.

Linda Knop March 22, 2013 at 3:49 AM


I am currently busy reading Gabriels Rapture, these books are fantastic, I love the way it is written, and it is absolutely addictive, can’t put them down, please please write more trilogy’s after Gabriels Redemption. You are one talented talented author!!!!!!!!!!!

Julianne April 25, 2013 at 11:03 PM
