Publisher's Weekly

In this final book of Bergren's River of Time trilogy (Waterfall, Cascade), doughty heroine Gabriella returns through the time tunnel to 14th-century Italy with her sister, Evangelia, her mother, and, on this trip, her father, hoping to undo his accidental 21st-century death. Gabi's heart is in the past. She reunites with Lord Marcello Fiorelli, a handsome prince of his city-state. Although 15 months have elapsed since Marcello has seen Gabi, they reaffirm their love, but warring between Siena and Florence pushes aside romance. Gabi hurls herself and her family into a series of well-described, harrowing adventures. Her almost preternatural psychological and physical strength strains credulity, but Bergren provides glimpses into the 21st-century adolescent mind with bits of dialogue between the sisters and snippets of Gabi's thoughts, the teen's modern slang jarring intentionally with the more formal language used by medieval characters. The action precludes exploring the nuances of the Betarrini family's situation, so the resolution of their dilemma--will they choose past or present?--lacks emotional resonance. The ending, however, provides a romantic answer that should satisfy and perhaps surprise Bergren's fans. Ages 12–up. (Sept.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This review was written for Torrent, River of Time Series #3.
    Returning yet again to her distant home from the past, Gabi returns now with her entire family. Having rescued her father from a certain death, she is determined to never lose him again. Gabi, Lia and her parents again face trouble but find happiness and truly have grown much before their years and learned to accept that life is short and you must treasure each moment as if it were your last and make life altering choices from the heart to stay alive as long as you can for those you love. As much as I hate to leave the characters I grow to love in the series, every subject was discussed, and I felt satisfied upon the conclusion. Three books are fulfilling to end on.

    This review was written for Torrent, River of Time Series #3.
    When I finished reading Cascade, I planned to wait a few months before reading Torrent, enjoying the anticipation of what the pages would hold. Torrent tempted me from the bookcase for just a couple of weeks, before I succumbed to the pull. Once again, I was swept away with Gabi's story. This time, the novel begins with a tug on the heartstrings as Gabi and her family are reunited with her father. His fatherly perspective adds an extra dimension to the growing love between Gabi and Marcello, and creates some humorous moments.

    As the entire Betarrini family travels back to Italy, the excitement begins. New challenges and battles,which I will not reveal, keep the plot fresh. Romance and faith take precedence in Torrent, as Gabi contemplates her future. Although Gabi's struggles take place in another time, her questions and temptations are very realistic and relevant for today's readers. The romance element lends itself to a few "steamier" scenes, but they are offset by a message of restraint in the face of temptation. The sure and steady faith of Marcello and other characters are positive examples to both Gabi and readers. Of the three books in the River of Time Series,Torrent offers the best balance of action and emotion.

    Bergren takes the reader to other areas of Italy in Torrent, including ancient Rome. Her clear and vivid descriptions paint a scene as masterful as the frescoes that define Rome's architecture. I enjoyed the change in scenery and the new twists those changes introduced. Torrent is the perfect ending to an amazing series. I loved Bergren's references to the River of Time and the symbolism of waterfall, cascade, and torrent. The novel tied all three books together, yet left room for more...and I am certainly thirsting for more!

    I loved the book! I took my breath away as my eyes scanned through every word. The images that played in my mind were phenomenal! I couldn't help but wish I was actually there. The images that played in my mind were phenomenal! I couldn't help but wish I was actually there. The connections between all the characters just blew my mind. The descriptive writing style that Bergren uses is just amazing.

    With this book, the relationship with Gabi and Marcello take a completely big step forward. The surprise wedding just made everything better! When Fortino died, I couldn't help but cry. Would we ever see or hear of him again? was my question. The wedding took place in the grand library where Fortino had spent have his life. Nothing could compare to it. The sudden twists and turns of this book took me off guard, in a good way. That's what I look for in a book.

    There is nothing much to say about the book, just that you gotta read it and see for yourself! (:
