This is going to be short and sweet simply because It's so hard to write a review and do it justice on a book that completely sweeps you off your feet in every way possible!!! Cascade was another addicting addition to River of Time series. I can ramble on and on but if you have read Waterfall, you are in for another AWESOME reading experience that will linger in your thoughts for quite some time.

I read this a while ago now, and I still feel giddy when I think about it! It is a MUST read! I love that there is never a dull moment, the action keeps anyone with a hint of A.

D flipping those pages and totally submerged within them! You get action, romance, deception, a heroin with more will-power and determination that makes your heart pump at an excessive rate those who have cardiac conditions.. Not only that, but let me tell you, Marcello is not only all of the above but he has a heart of gold and a deep devotion of love for Gabby that anyone with a fairy-tale dream generated guy in their mind will fit him in that place. You want secondary characters that blow your mind and add just as much flavor to the story Cascade picks up right where Waterfall left off.
The She-Wolves of Siena are back with more tough decisions, bubonic plague etc. This isn't my typical review and I have a tendancy to ramble on about books I am totally in love with, but I just can't say enough how much I love it!

These 21st-century gals quickly acclimate to their new environment by adapting skills they had acquired in their own time. Gabi and Lia were full of courage, intestinal fortitude, and blessed with beauty as well. All the characters were realistic and the secondary characters were full of their own warmth, personality, and depth. The sequel was packed with just as much danger and intrigue as the previous book, and actually captivated me even more!
This adventure opens with Gabi and Lisa anxious to jump through the time portal back to the angst they had just left behind with the knights they suddenly can't live without and feel the need to help protect. Their mother will only approve if they take her with them, so they can make a detour to rescue their father, who had been killed in an accident several months before the story began.
When they arrive, Castle Forelli is under attack and there is a reward for the girl's deaths.

Prepare for nonstop action adventure as they help the ancient Sienese. There will be no shortage of daring sword battles, heinous trickery, political drama, heartwarming romance, and hilarious teen hijinks all within the terrains of ancient Italy. The author researched the time and area very well, allowing her to build a rich and intricately designed, historical world.
This historical fiction was very Interesting to me and compelling enough to read each story in only one day! I failed to ascertain where the titles came from. The conclusion also left me with other unanswered questions that may perhaps be revealed in the next book of the series.

Cascade is a clean piece of entertainment aspiring to capture the attention of young adult readers, but also exacting enough to reach readers of all ages. This family experienced history first hand and grew up much more quickly thanks to an adventure full of history, humor, and hormones. Even though there are some grammatical, they don't detract from the story. I highly recommend it! I liked how this one picks up right where the first one leaves off. This is one series where all the books are great, maybe even getting better as they go. Gabi continues to be a great heroine. I thought she was easy to relate to and easy to like.
She is tough, but believable. She is courageous and fiercely loyal. When everything seems overwhelming and futile, she is still brave and speaks her I liked how this one picks up right where the first one leaves off. When everything seems overwhelming and futile, she is still brave and speaks her mind. She uses her wits and I just loved being along for the ride. I liked that Lia plays a bigger role in this one.
Same with Luca and Marcella, the book is at its best when they are all together. I love how committed Marcello is to Gabi, he would literally do anything for her and puts her first. Even with all his other responsibilities he will drop whatever it is to come to her aid. Luca continues to add a fun comedic element, but he can be all business when he needs to be. I like the relationship that is building between him and Lia. There is more to him than we get to see and it leaves you wanting to know more of his story.
Luckily, we do get more of him in the next book and boy does he add some good conflict to the story. The plot is exciting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Lots of adventure and character growth for Gabi. A great addition to the series! Content: Clean, PG Clean romance, no language, moderate violence.

Cascade: A Novel
A rare jewel, in that it's morally astute and cleanly written, showcasing young women in a positive light as heroines with verve and grace. All the way around, an exceptionally great read. Not quite as appealing to me as Waterfall - the first in series. But even so, both were most enjoyable. And I would imagine teen girls and young women will be thrilled with the fast pace, and totally gaga over the swimmingly dreamy romance within the pages of Cascade.

However, this may have been because, at the time, I was reading several other books at once, and I just couldn't seem to get into it.
But I am so glad that I decided to pick it up again : It started to get better for me around the half-way mark.

The "She-Wolves of Siena" were very funny and likeable characters for me, but I definitely think that I like Lia's character the most. I sometimes found Gabi to be a little bit irritating, but that could just be me lol Another thing I loved in this book was Lia and Luca's budding romance : They were so sweet and Luca had me laughing so much at some of the things he said. Lord Greco's character had me very intrigued and he kept me wanting to read on until I knew more about him and whether or not he could be trusted.
All in all, I am very glad that I decided to get back into this series and hope that I can start the third book, Torrent, very soon! View all 7 comments.
