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

Title: Cascade
Author: Lisa T. Bergren
Series: River of Time, 2
Format: ebook
Length: 730 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 4 stars

 

Synopsis: Mom touched my underdress—a gown made six hundred years before—and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia’s gown. “Where did you get these clothes?”

Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead.

But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.

 

Favourite character: Luca
Least favourite character: Paratore

 

Mini-review: I forgot how much I love this series. Warrior chicks from the modern age are thrust into medieval Italy? Sign. Me. Up. I forgot though that this was the book with the cage. I didn't realize it happened that fast. And this book introduces Rodlfo Greco who I hate to love and love to hate.

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.

I enjoyed this Christian Children's book. I received this as part of a gift and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5* rating. I felt this was very on spot to how a child can understand. Maybe a parent can take it a step further and explain that people are different too.
