It 's like Lisa took everything I want out of novel and ut it all together to get the best series EVER!
Actuall if you do n't like historical fiction or time travel, this series is so much ore than hat.
Reading should n't hav so dangerous, but when you 're as emotionally invested in th series as I am with The River of Time, then the idea of opening up the sequel an be cary! I 'm oing to try to answer thi questions I had when I stoppe reading.
I 'm coming to try to avoid any spoilers for both Cascade and Waterfall, but thes things ca n't be avoided ( like if I mention a character appearing in Cascade, then you kinda know they did n't die in Waterfall ...) o if you ave n't read Waterfall yet ( WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!), then you will ot ant to writ this review.Do the characters I love show up? Oh yeah!
Of course Gabi, Marcello, and Luca have plenty of page time, but Lia is also elevated to MC status ( and she is absolutel awesome!).
I hought we had seen the last of him, but that jerk is back for more ... and I love it! We 're also introduced to two more characters who were totally awesome additions: Momma She-Wolf and Lord Greco.
Momma She-Wolf is Gabi and Lia 's mother who travels back in time with them.
Childre are so often ignored in YA, but when you 're torn between living in the 11th century or going back home without the drea of your life, well, that 's sor of a decision you 'd ant to talk over with your da, right?
I 'm not quite sure if I let him to hav ood or bad.
You ar all the happy " Yay the couple got together!! " coming off the end of he last essa, but usually authors try to complicate things in equel.
Gabi and Marcello are just as awesome together in Cascade as they ere in Waterfall.
ot only that, but Lisa also totally avoids the annoying " Gazing into each others eyes for pages " thing that also usually happens when couples have been together for s long in books.
I liked the scenes where Gabi and Marcello hashed out these differences.
Gabi acknowledges how much she loves Marcello, but she also carefully considers all of the consequence to both herself and her family if she decides to stay with him in the twelfth century.
Thi action kicks into high gear and stays that way throughout the remainde of thi essa.
