To be honest, I wasn’t a fan of Gabi’s dad. He didn’t have much impact on the story in the long run, and most of the time I couldn’t help but feel that I should be waiting for him to breakdown. He got sucked back through time with his family that is spontaneously several years older than the last time he saw them… but after his brief initial reaction… he just gets over it. I was expecting more conflict surrounding him that never came.
Other characters, such as Rodolfo, didn’t play as big a part in the story as I had expected. At first, it felt as if Rodolfo was going to create a bit of a love triangle between the main characters. There was a hint of it—just a little—but then he too stepped to the sidelines and let Gabi and Marcello have their way. It was a little too easy. I wish there had been more conflict there.
Those points aside, I genuinely enjoyed the book. Like the first two books in the series, the narrative was action-packed, full of daring adventures, battles, tragedy, and heart-warming moments of love. I literally squealed in delight a few times. Despite all the negative things I could nitpick about this book, and this series, none of it matters in the long run. The book is so well put together, and the characters so vivid and well-written that it is hard to let the little negatives get to me. I loved the story despite it’s problems, and that’s a sure sign of a great book.
Would I recommend this book? Yes. Definitely. Would I read it again? In a heartbeat. If you enjoy YA fiction, you’ll love this series. I’m honestly anxious to move on to the next two books. I can’t wait to see what happens!
I don't know what it is about these novels that makes me love them so dearly. Is it the author's fantastic craft? The heart-twisting imagination? The dashing Italian knights? The feeling that, at any moment, anyone -- or everyone -- I've grown to love over the course of these three books could die? Well, it's all that and so much more. It's love. Honest-to-goodness, true book love -- for Torrent, as well as Waterfall and Cascade, the other two books in the River of Time series.
Inserting fresh intrigues, new twists, and secret brotherhoods into the third installment of this romantic adventure, the author grows the presence of newer characters (like Lord Greco) and forces the existing cast (especially Gabi) to mature emotionally through adventures of both a physical nature and of the heart. Torrent is the perfect conclusion to this trilogy -- not only because it satisfies on every level, but because it keeps you hoping that the younger She-Wolf of Siena (Lia) will get a series of her own sometime soon. (Hint, hint, wink, wink to Lisa T. Bergren and the Publishing Powers That Be.) I adore these books and plan to read the entire series again as soon as I get the chance!
Rapturous romance and spine-tingling adventure await you within Lisa T. Bergren's medieval Italy, so don't wait another minute to let yourself get swept away by the River of Time.

Seriously, I cannot praise this series enough for its amaizingness. It has that rare ability to keep the reader completely glued to the book… guessing what would come next and being completely shocked and taken aback when it did! I feel like I might have just read my new favourite series… ever.
It’s hard to talk about without giving away spoilers from the first two books but let’s just say the she wolves of Sienna are back for a whole new crazy time travelling medieval adventure with their family and their men behind them. There’s more battles, more romance, more medieval storylines that really do cut these books very close to a fine line between YA and adult fiction.
I feel like I’m just repeating everything I said in my reviews for the first two books but I do feel just the same way about all three books. They are all fantastic and absolute literary triumphs in my opinion.
I know the author is writing a fourth (originally unplanned) book in this series and normally I wouldn’t want a series that is perfect already to be added to, in case adding to it makes it not as good anymore. But in this case I am desperate to read more in this world. I think there is definitely scope for more storyline and I have every confidence in this amazing author to pull off another brilliant story.
Can we have more please Lisa.
There were some narrow escapes and exhilarating chases, that kept me biting my nails in anticipation. Threatening circumstances just kept happening one right after the next, and you clearly get the picture that life in this age was very different, where death is always hovering in the balance. What it did was infuse these characters with an appreciation and zest for life, to live every moment to the fullest, never knowing when it could be the last opportunity. And that mentality was infectious, at least for me. It really got me into the warrior spirit, and inspired me to keep fighting for truth and justice, where I am, in my every day walk. I'm just glad this isn't the last book in the series after all, as was previously advertised, because they're quite addicting!
