Review: Cascade by Lisa T. Bergren

In this second book of the River of Time series, Gabi and Lia convince their mother to return with them back to the fourteenth century.  Gabi has left her heart there and is desperate to return to the man who holds that heart.  The people of Siena hail the sisters as heroes and a great celebration is held in their honor.  Meanwhile, the Florentines are plotting and planning ways to destroy Gabi and Lia and take over the Siena rule.  Gabi knows that to stay in this time with Marcello would be asking much of her family, who would also have to stay.  But, how can she leave the one person who has become everything to her?  And will they even survive the turmoil surrounding them to have the choice?

I loved this book.  Waterfall was a fantastic read, but Cascade was even better in my opinion.  I would get reading and totally forget that I was also supposed to be reviewing.  I’d have to try to go back and take notes on all the stuff I just passed over.  This book is fast paced and exciting.  I love strong and capable female leads to match those strong and capable (and hunky) male main characters.  I love the romance and developing relationships.  I just really enjoyed reading this book.  Bergren has really done her homework on the time period and it shows.

I was so excited when Lisa Bergren sent me a copy of this book to read and review prior to its release date.  I’m her newest, BIGGEST fan.  And even though I have an electronic copy, I went online and bought both Waterfall and Cascade so I could have them on my shelves.  My daughter is Lisa’s next to newest and biggest fan.  J  We will be anxiously awaiting the fall release of Torrent.
Cascade will be released June 1, 2011.
