This 2nd novel in the River of Time series is even more masterful than the first! The many complex relationships between characters are wholly believable (romantic, parent-child, sisters, friends), the combat scenes and historical details are so precisely described and emotionally linked to the characters and readers that you forget you're reading a book, and there is absolutely nothing predictable about this book.
The author perfectly blends so many genres, from romance to adventure, action to historical, Christian to sci-fi...which means this book should appeal to virtually any reader.
Absolutely one of the most engaging and most well written novels I have ever read!
Cascade is a solid prequel to Waterfall, and never lets you go from the first page, starting off where we left off. Gabi and Lia, return back to Ancient Italy this time with their Mom! I think this book is actually MORE DANGEROUS than the first, again *I WON'T SPOIL ANYTHING*. Yet my only complaint is I thought from Lia on the beautiful cover, that this book would actually give Lia a chance to share her side of things and love story with Luca. Instead their relationship is more in the background. I hope to see this change in Torrent.
