But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?
In Gabriel’s Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabriel’s Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the reader’s mind, body, and soul, forever.
My opinion: Pain and Love. In this book we see Julia's and Gabriel's transformation. The compassionate Julia finally finds the strength to stand up for herslef in more than one occasion. We also see Gabriel's journey and how he changes through that ( a change of 360 degrees). We watch as the two lovers learning each other. Their love blooms.
I like Paul's character, he is in love with Julia but he tries to be a good friend, even though this is killing him.
There are many people who wants them apart... Is their love strong enough? Will they be together at the end?
