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 c...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 am convinced this needs to be a movie series!
I had bittersweet feeling when I started Torrent, because I thought it was the last book in the series, and I wasn't ready to say goodbye. But thanks to my awesome goodreads friends I see... It's not over y'all!!! (dances). There's novellas and a book #4, lol, I'm soooo excited.

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

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.

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
This is my favorite of the series so far! It was so good. I loved how the romance was in this! And it was not predictable at all. I really want to read the rest of the series even though this did not really end on a cliffhanger.
I finished the first 3 books a while ago but I feel that I need to write this review. I know mine will not matter much but I need to try to get ...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
If you enjoy learning through historical fiction, this 3rd book holds intriguing facts about Rome, the Catholic church, and social norms of the time. I'm ready for book #4.
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.

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
This has to be my favorite book of the whole series, or at least dead-even with Waterfall.
In the beginning it was so awesome. The plot twist left me gasping.
In this novel you get so connected with all the characters. (view spoiler)[If one of them dies or almost dies, you die. Inside. It's ridiculous.
Why do you do this, Lisa Bergren!!!
I'm only kidding. (hide spoiler)] Thank ...more
Lots of adventure and romance (clean). I didn't want it to end.
Clean rating: Some bloody violence.
