Gabi knows her family will be making a huge sacrifice to stay in ancient Italy but also knows she tied to Marcello in a way that cant be broken, that is until events change the political atmosphere surrounding Marcello and the nation of Sienna. With a shocking wrench thrown into the plotting, Gabi's life may take a completely new direction than she ever imagined. While those who love her fight back and Gabi risks everything, the torrent that threatens to devour them all rears it ugly head.
My favorite of three, Torrent was a fast rollercoaster of emotion, shocking plot twists and a gorgeous well-done end. I cant review any of the stuff that made Torrent what it was due to not spoiling it for readers, is all I can say is that things happened that I wanted to happen and things happened that shocked me. Lisa threw in some added drama for Gabi that she needed in order to truly see what being with Marcello would mean, she also by the end grew Gabi into a fully developed character that shreds the last lingering thoughts of a 21st century teenager yet still maintains her spunk, bravery and courage.
Now that Ive finally docked the boat after being on a river that turns, spins, crashes, rips you under with its current and then gently calms you with its tranquility, I must say reading the River of Time series has been a marvelous adventure.Read more ›
This is the third book in the River of Time series. I have loved these books since the first time I laid eyes on them. If you haven't read them yet, you really should. I found so many things to love all the way through.
Love, loyalty, time travel, action, knights in shining armor and a good history lesson... You just can't ask for more.
This third book couldn't come fast enough for me. I was hoping for all kinds of resolution and good things. I was not disappointed at all. It felt so good to end the journey with Gabi and crew. Happily. :) The book is well written and the scenes are etched in my mind.
I sure wouldn't mind reading another series starring Lia and Luca. I sure think there is more of that story to tell! Well, it could be that while I am utterly satisfied with the ending of Torrent, I still just want more.
I really don't want to give away the book and the twists so I'm just going to have to tell you to pick up these books, starting with Waterfall and Cascade and ending with Torrent. They are one of my favorite series. I will be reading these books again. I'm also happy to say that these books are clean. I can recommend these books to all my friends and even my daughter's friends. To me, that is huge.
My most sincere thanks to Lisa Bergren for writing such great books and letting me read them. Torrent comes out September 1st! I love, love, love the River of Time Series!
The River of Time is one of my favourite series so I was super excited to get my hands on an early copy of the final installment Torrent. And what an incredible read! It was everything I hope for and so much more.
Again Lisa Tawn Bergren has written another exciting and suspense filled plot. There are so many pulse pounding moments as Gabi and her love ones are never far from danger. But it isn't just action and adventure but also a insightful and meaningful story. It reminds you to appreciate every moment you have.
Gosh, I adore these characters. They are the type you admire and who inspire you to be a better person. It is always hard to pick a favourite out of this outstanding bunch but it would have to be Gabi with her strength, courage and kindness. She really has grown and mature so much in the series. Then you have Marcello and he is much more than just an Italian hottie. He is smart, loyal, brave and has such a beautiful and caring soul. In this installment Gabi's family plays such a large part of the story. It is great to read a book with such strong and positive family presence.
Now, talk about swoon. Torrent had plenty of heart melting moments. And I was surprised as another character tempted my heart away from Marcello (which I thought impossible). I wish I could say more but I don't want to spoil the book for you. I am hoping (and begging) that Lisa Tawn Bergren will decide to write this character a spin off series because I am in love again!
Overall, Torrent was amazing. My favourite out of the three and a perfect end to an unforgettable series. If you like stories full of adventure and romance then this is a must read.

A little more suspense, a little less action would go a long way. I felt exhausted by the end of the book and didn't care as much about the characters as I would have liked.Published 18 days ago by Jane
