Four Winds is a captivating end to the River of Time: California duology. It kicks off from the very start and doesn't stop until the very last page. Sieges, kidnappings, pirates, shipwrecks, fights, parties, and so much more kept this book moving at a non-stop pace. There was so much going on that huge chunks of the book flew by without me even realizing I had turned a page. The adventure is wonderful, the ending is majestic, and overall this is a book that can pretty much stand on its own two feet. Something I wondered throughout the book was with Zara and Javier talking so much about Zara being able to make the choice on her own whether to go or to stay for sure, why did Zara never think well what if I go back and then regret going back to my own time but I can't get back to 1840? She did a lot of thinking about staying or going as finite options. Maybe it's the over-analyzer in me, but I couldn't help but wonder, what if you go back and realize it's a huge mistake and then you can never go back in time again. How awful would that be? Regardless, it all turns out well in the end, so despite my ponderings, the thoughts don't have too much bearing on what happens in the end. Overall, I could read another River of Time series any day of the week.
