Can’t decide what to read? Can’t get interested in anything? This book will ignite an inferno inside of you that just leaves you wanting more and more.
Gabriel’s inferno not only focuses on Professor Gabriel Emerson and Julia Mitchell but Dante and Beatrice as well. Like almost every romance you read, these character’s don’t just fall head over heals in love with each other at first sight. They start out with a platonic relationship. Julia, having grown up with Gabriel’s little sister, knows all about how haunted Gabriel can be, especially after spending a night in his arms at the age of seventeen. Having believed herself madly in love with him, she chooses to become a Dante specialist and enrolls into his class. Professor Emerson can come off as a bit rude and snobbish but he ultimately warms on you. Julia and he begin a relationship slowly, though, with the school’s fraternizing policy, they can’t be seen out in public while she is his student. Professor Emerson makes moves to protect Julia from harm by finding another Professor to take her on for her dissertation, the fear of being found weighs heavily on their minds. As their relationship grows, both Julia and Gabriel must come to terms with their past.
The story focuses on the emotional sides of relationships and how the past can hurt you without redemption and penance.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It not only captivated me, but made me feel as if I was next to Julia and Gabriel, watching as they fell in love. I loved how Mr. Reynard romanticized his writing, not only this way but how he took us through the scenery and made us feel as if we were there and not sitting in class or in bed reading. Gabriel and Julia’s relationship was conflicted, of course, but they fight for it and they endure the hardships. Reynard does write differently than other authors.
