My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
I recently finished ‘Waterfall’ (which was the first book I’ve read by Lisa T Bergren) and I loved it so much that I was eagerly anticipating the next addition in ‘The River of Times’ series.
‘Cascade’ picks up where ‘Waterfall’ left off. Gabi and Lia return from their trip through time, but Gabi wants to return because the man she loves is there – Marcello.
Gabi and Lia return pretty much right away – with their mother this time – and learn that months have passed in Marcello’s world. This time they must battle the Plague as well as wars and imprisonment.
I love how the story continued. The relationship between Gabi and Marcello is so sweet and I am rooting that everything works out for them.
In ‘Cascade’ we see a lot more of Gabi’s mother than we did in ‘Waterfall’, which I liked. They didn’t really connect with her much in their time because she was mostly too busy, but in the 14th Century they spent more time together, and became closer.
‘Cascade’ also showed hints of romance between Lia and Luca, which makes me more eager to read ‘Torrent’. I did not like a couple of slang phrases that were used. That aside, I really, really, really loved ‘Cascade’. I am therefore giving it 5 stars!!!!!
I highly recommend ‘Cascade’ if you enjoy YA or romance/suspense books, but I would suggest you read ‘Waterfall’ first.
