Marie1 Stars Out Of 5Don't Read These Books!!!December 20, 2016MarieQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I am 14 years old and I was hoping to find a good book to read. However, I do not recommend these books for anyone to read. Mainly all that is in the books is killing, battles, hatred, anger, and too much romance and sex. The language used is coarse, and neither side fights for what is right. Most of the characters in the book focus on evil and glorify the evil. All the characters are selfish and greedy. When either side has prisoners, they torture them. The characters lie a lot. Also throughout all the books the issues seem to get worse and worse. I also don't like the idea of using magic to get back in time and using magic to bring people back to life. None of the characters seem to have a personal relationship with God. They only cry out to him when they need something fixed. It appears that the two guys whom the two "Christian" girls marry are not Christians. These books are geared towards 13 to 17 year olds. These books aren't appropriate for any age. These books are supposed to be Christian books. They are not. These books are trash.

GB3 Stars Out Of 5Not what I expectedMarch 25, 2016GBQuality: 5Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I had been looking for a Christian Historical Fiction for awhile and was excited when I found one with an interesting twist, that being time travel. I read half way through and had to stop reading. I knew that it had some romance in it but, didn't realize how much! Definitely different from the sample they give you. I really wish it wasn't like this because I really enjoy Lisa Bergen's writing.

A very thrilling read indeed, just like I was promised by a good number of readers when I was searching for a good read.
With Waterfall, Bergren unlocks a door to ancient Italy and invites readers not just to peak in but to step in and see, and experience it for themselves. The research was clearly well done - she even provided a bibliography at the end of the novel, wouldn't you know- and this read engrossed me so much, I just kept flipping pages! One minute, I'm on page 80 the next, p. 200. And I just could not stop smiling while reading.
I like a heroine with spunk, tenacity... that 'try-me-and-you'll-see' vibe and Gabriella is all that and more. (She gives them soldiers a gooood run for their money.) Marcello is a gentleman and a knight in shining armor through and through and I think every romantic will find the romance in this book quite enjoyable. (Watch out for the kissing scene, ladies!!)
That being said, what I liked less: (* COULD CONTAIN MINOR SPOILERS!*)
- Didn't understand why at one point, Marcello told Romana that Gabriella confessed having feelings for him, when at that moment, it was unnecessary for Romana to know that and what he said wasn't entirely the truth.
- LUCA! Dear Luca. I so dearly hoped that he might end up finding a lover in this book... Gabi's sister maybe. But as it turned out, Evangelia can be quite selfish many times.
- While reading, I kept on hoping that Gabriella would reveal her secret because the more she kept it to herself, the more confused Marcello became and I found that unfair. (When you truly love someone you don't do that to them.)
And lastly, just a side note, I found the pace slower toward the end of the novel. I want to keep on reading this series though, I sense that there are more good things to come. And one thing is for sure:
So help us, Lisa T. Bergren is able to write very, VERY well
