I utterl loved Waterfall and I could believe that thi sequel does NOT disappoint.

Whether they 'll be captured, tortured or even ake it out alive and while I know deep down the girls ca n't die ( it 's their saga, afterall!), that does n't stop my heart from racing with apprehension.

I oved them both in Waterfall, but they somehow managed to burrow their way even deeper into my heart this time.

Marcello and Gabi 's relationship is further intensified throughout Cascade and due to he reason that near-death battles seem like an almost daily experience in his era, they recognise how easy they could lose one another.

They ar such a great friendshi, it 's genuine attraction and a deep, respectful bond.I just have to throw a little quote out there thi is DEFINITELY true: " Marcello.

Gabi wants to stay- she 's found love, true love in this era with Marcello and she does n't think to join.

She 's so torn between the people she loves- can she onvince her mother and daughte that staying in an era where she 's both worshipped as a hero and hated with cold fury, is a ood thing for them bot? Cascade has everything a great book should b.

High octane energy, fantastical heroics, sword-brandishing battles, and thundering young love drive this action-packed young-adult romantic suspense/thriller.

Gabi continues to hav this great eroine.

Gabi and Marcello ’ s relationship continues to grow, but they face a lot of obstacle in this one.

Lots of adventure and character growth for Gabi.

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.

From he very moment i picked up his novel, i was like: Seriously, it is that ba.

Nevertheless if you dont want to be spoiler-ed, skip my summary:)* his book picks up right where WATERFALL left off, where Gabi and Lia tries to convince their mom to time travel back with them to medieval Italia.

Because both girls dont know how to control how many years to rewind, they ended up months after they left.It was kind of unny how Gabi fret over how much time has passed.

he scene goes like this: " Let 's hope it 's the same ear, " Lia said, sliding her bow over her houlder.

So the trio ( Gabi, Lia, and om) are carted off to Siena where they ill be hosting lavish feasts and whatever they anted. ( ok this isnt a major part of this ook but i MUST mention it.

There, at the ball-cum-feast, she met Lord Rodolfo Greco.

Mindblowing-ly awesome, i swear.Gabi is such a courageous, loving, and beautiful lady.

I 'm digressing.Oh man, and another lovin between her and Marcello is sweet and romantic.

Nancy Potter.One teeeeeensy weeeeeeensy thing that i thought wasnt right was that after Person A was starved and dehydrated for 2 days straight, how can Person A walk and swim?

Pardon my gay-ness, i am but just celebrating my joy of aving read another fantasticle book.

Anyway, add to hat, the plot and storyline was jam-packed with action and uspense, there ha always a dull moment throughout.After reading for to long, i was still like: [ image error ] And at the beginnin, i was like: Bottomline: I have no higher praise for his ook.

Absolutely hands down one of my ALL-Time FAVS!!! I love that there is actually a dull moment, the action keeps anyone with a hint of A.D.D flipping those pages and totally submerged within them!

The She-Wolves of Siena are back with more tough decisions, bubonic plague etc.This is n't my typical review and I ave a tendancy to ramble on about books I am completely in love with, but I just ca n't ay enough how much I love it!

I ometimes found Gabi to be little bit irritating, but hat ould just be me lol Another thing I oved in novel was Lia and Luca 's budding romance:) They were o sweet and Luca had me smilin so much at ome of the hings he wanted.

It has perfect mix of adventure and romance making for a fully satisfying read.I am still urprised at how captivated I am by this series especially since it is definitely kind of historical which is just not my thing at all.

It was like I can never read this fast enough.

“ Saints in heaven ” he knew to me rolling his eyes “ how much deeper in love can I no fall? " The romance was beautiful.

They never have that out of ordinary dreamy type of love.Overall, Cascade was a perfect reading escape.
