Review: Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren
Waterfall - Lisa Tawn Bergren

Title: Waterfall
Author: Lisa T. Bergren
Series: River of Time, 1
Format: ebook
Length: 702 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 4 stars

 

Synopsis:

What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaelogist parents. Stuck among the rubble of the medieval castles in rural Tuscany, on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds...until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

Suddenly Gabi's summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

 

Favourite character: Luca Forelli
Least favourite character: Cosmo Paratore, Lord Vannucci

 

Mini-review:

This was a such a good book. And I finished it just in time to start with a blank slate for Booklikes-opoly tomorrow. (Which is less than hour from now.) 

I love books like this. Most times when I get annoyed with historical fiction it's because the main chick doesn't do much except embroidery or proving to men that she's not weak, but not actually doing anything. This has action, two warrior princess, as Gabi and Lia are deemed, are in the thick of battle. And so much other stuff. It's so jam packed full of drama, it's just... AND IT'S SET IN ITALY. I've always wanted to go to Italy.

Reading progress update: I've read 1%.
Waterfall - Lisa Tawn Bergren

Yes, I'm still at 1%. I've been organizing myself for Booklikes-opoly, which I'm super excited about.

 

Now that I've got everything (I think) ready I can sit back and relax until tomorrow. And the best way to relax is to read.
