it was amazing

Cascade picks up right where Waterfall ends, so there is no disruption in the action. From the start, the plot is packed with adventure and danger. The pace is steady with moments of heart-pounding close-calls. Amid the tribulations that Gabi and Lia face, they mature into strong young women and lose their hearts a little more to Italy and the Forelli family. Thankfully, character development is not sacrificed for action. Gabi's story is told from her first-person perspective, with the interesting and fresh take on historic Italy from a modern day teen. Without knowing the thoughts or motivations of some other characters, the reader is left to question who is good and who is bad. The mystery is as propelling as a swift undercurrent.

The introduction of Gabi's mother adds an endearing family element to the plot. Watching her adjust to medieval Italy and observe her daughters in their element is both heart-warming and funny. Her mother shows just as much spunk as her daughters, and their combined penchant for finding themselves battling fierce enemies create a multitude of exciting twists and turns. I truly never knew what was around the next bend.
