Torrent (River of Time #3)
“Hold tight,” I said. “No matter what happens, do not let us go.”
“We won’t,” my dad said.
“Never,” Mom added.
And with a look at Lia, we laid our hands upon the prints.
Gabriella and Evangelia Betarrini are just two normal American teenagers. Normal except for the fact that they time travel to fourteenth-century Italy, where they’ve lived in castles they’ve seen as cr...more
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 Ga ...more
A rush of excitement. A rush of intensity. A rush of exhilaration. Torrent, the third book in the River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren, was the perfect ending to a story that has captured our hearts and minds, eliciting a fervor from us that we never expected when we picked up Waterfall, the first in the series. The final book in a series is always the most delicate. It must be well crafted and live up to those beginning books that so captured our interest, while closing out the s ...more
I can't wait till Tributary comes out!! More Lord Greco. Yay!!!
After Cascades emotional and fantastic ending, Gabi and Lia find themselves racing back to 14th-Century Italy. For Gabi she is racing back to her true love, for Lia she races back to save her family and an unspoken romance that has risen in her own heart. Coming back this time however will have its consequences, getting back home will be almost impossible and perhaps out of the question now that a life hangs in the balance.
Gabi knows her family will be making a huge sacrifice to ...more
The characters are still awesome, and I especially loved that Lord Greco was in this book.
The storyline was super fast-paced and entertaining. I finished Torrent in two days, and immediately went to the novella, Bourne.
My favorite scene was the wedding–I’m not going to say who’s be ...more
If you've heard me talk about the River of Time series before, you know I thought Waterfall was awesome and Cascade was awesome-er…but I think Torrent was awesome-est!! Each book just kept getting better, and better, and better! Starting Torrent sometime in the afternoon, I did not stop reading till I finished it. Clinging to the pages in breathless suspense, I devoured the new adventures that Gabi and Lia go through with their guys, Marcello an ...more
One of the major flaw ...more
I wondered, going into this book, what Lisa could possibly have in store for us. How could ...more
The River of Time series is a Timeless Masterpiece that will capture your heart…
1. a stream of water flowing with great rapidity and violence.
2. a rushing, violent, or abundant and unceasing stream of anything: a torrent of lava.
The title Torrent is so perfectly suited for the third and final installment of the River of Time series. Since falling deeply for Waterfall and Cascade, I couldn’t even fathom the idea of not completing this series. It had me completely and utterly captivated ...more
The adventure that Gabi and Marcello go on this time around just had me shaking my head and talking to my book, hurray this is awesome, a ...more
Wow. I'm sad. Because this series is over. Do you know how fast I devoured it? I read Waterfall one night, Cascade the next... was pining for Torrent's ARC release... Which I finished within one night, too, when I finally got it.
**Spoiler alert: Do not read this review if you have not read this series and are afraid of reading any spoilers. I highly recommend you simply close this page, and open those of Waterfall, Book 1.
And that's partly why this i ...more
The River of Time books transport us to an utterly enthralling medieval world, enchanting us with knights in shining armor and their chivalry, but also never letting us forget the difficulties of the time period. With the extravagant gowns and the propriety we also experience lives governed by the point of a sword–often lived fast and lost quickly–as accompanying the gallantry we find greed and a desire for power; just as with loyalt ...more
I tried not to include any spoilers for the whole series.
Series can be tricky things. The first part needs to hook you, the second part needs to sustain you, and the third part needs to knock your socks off AND satisfy you.
Torrent is a win all around. Lisa T. Bergren so totally knocked my socks off and left me beyond satisfied (except for the fact that I want more, but I'm a glutton like that). Torrent was everything a concluding book should be and more.
Picked up ...more
Lots of adventure and romance (clean). I didn't want it to end.
It took every last molecule-sized drop of my will-power to keep from flipping to the last page in TORRENT to find out what happens at the end. Will Marcello and Ga ...more
I could read this again and again and again - so detailed is the world Lisa has created, and so heart-warming are the motley cast of characters she ha ...more
First off, the story line and plot pacing is amazing! The story line picks up right where it left off and you are off to another world. With new elements, Ms. Bergren sweeps the reader off their feet before I can even finish the first pag ...more
I had to go back & reread the series after Deluge. So, so good!! Just as much of a page turner as it was the first time I read it. Enjoyed getting to experience little moments I'd forgotten about throughout. Love these characters & their story!!
I hugged Torrent right after I finished it, literally. It was SO good!!! Went way beyond my expectations, which I can assure you were very high. I still can't believe it's over. :P
Torrent took me on yet another incredi ...more
This review is about to get spoilery. You have been warned. :)
Let’s start with the part of the story that pained me most. My dearest Fortino. Still captured and repeatedly tortured at the hands of the enemy...for 15 months! It just broke my heart. I wish things had turned out differently for him, but I understand why they didn’t. It’s still very sad and unfair that it would happen to him of all people. My heart broke for Marcello at ...more
This is such a hard review to write because in my previous reviews of Waterfall and Cascade, I declared my complete and utter devotion to this series. And you know what? Torrent did not disappoint.
So why is it hard? Because, darn it all, it’s the end and Lisa executed a plot that took me to a point I didn’t think I’d find credible. Yes, it’s true. Because I knew their father would be there and that would complicate some matters (i.e. the enti ...more
I like time travel. So I liked this book, but I don't think it matched my anticipation after reading the second one. There was a lot of action, which I like. I also liked the fact that the dad was brought back in time for this book. It helped to solidify the family unit and it was made strong with this novel.
The one thing that was overly annoying, was that this book seemed to h ...more
