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!
Gabi and Lia save their father from death in the present and travel with him and their mother back to medieval Italy. When they return they find that the nearby castle is occupied by Marcello's enemy and rumors are that Fortuno is being held captive. Gabi and family must find Marcello and try to bring peace to realm.
Gabi is a tough heroine, she came off as a bit unrealistically tough at times even given the fact that she has sword fighting skills. At one point she is wielding a broadsword and another she climbs up a wall; both would require incredible strength. Still I enjoyed reading about her, she is easy to engage with and definitely a good character.
Marcello comes off as a bit too alpha male for me at times as well. Gabi and him definitely don't see eye to eye on her position in his castle and his life. There is a love conquers all theme to this book, but in reality I wonder if Gabi and Marcello would be able to resolve their differences in a peacetime scenario.
There were a couple small things that bothered me about the story. All of the characters were a bit too noble for a war situation; I mean Gabi is captured and surrounded by soldiers yet the idea of her "honor" being compromised is only mentioned in passing. Since this is YA I guess we can expect a lot of the violence seen in a war situation to be glossed over...but at times it was all a bit too roses and daffodils for me.Read more ›
