Read from February 17 to 19, 2012

Bourne is a little taste of a book, just a small glimpse into the events going down after Torrent's battle and Paratore's death. Its a hint of possibilities these richly complex characters are going to take and how much depth character development is going to become. I could break this all down and tell you about the writing, the drama and the voice of Lia, which was well done or the heated love story of Luca and Lia, but I really only want to talk about Lord Greco.......and this is where I think Lisa can really expand on the RofT story, especially with the appeal of his character.

Greco is best described (besides the hot, swoony, irresistible factor) as an unpeeled onion, we know he's good looking and strong...however his depth of emotion and political driven aspirations truly make him a fascinating character with layers to unveil. While Greco spends most of his time in Bourne with self-loathing and bordering on martyrdom, he certainly takes the cake as character champion in the end.

This is a world of war, disease, savagery, and intense emotion....but I cant help but want to be there...I want to ride its horses, wear its dresses, wield its swords and marry its men......

Caitlin Peterson Have you already read it? I keep checking her site to see when the official release date is going to be.. can't wait!

Serena Chase Tina, you make me giggle. Between that and reviewing all the funny things I highlighted while reading, I've been having a regular Riv of Time gigglefest today.

TinasBookReviews @Caitlin- Yes! It was a short fun read...getting a bit more of what happened right after Torrent...;)

Serena- LOL!! Yup it was so much fun just getting a bit more of all the Gabi-Marcello-Lia-Greco-Luca Drama......

"Unhand her you Fool"- Luca is hysterical...

Serena Chase Indeed. Marcello, Luca, Greco -- how can you pick just one? (excuse me. Must fan self now.) I loved seeing Luca jealous. but Greco made my heart hurt for him. :(
