eBook [Torrent River of Time #3 Lisa Tawn Bergren] mental health – eBook, Kindle & PDF Read
Out of the Shadows jIn my eyesSPOILERS First of all the author is trying to be way to cool in her writing style since it s been a while I don t remember all the specific typical teenage girl words she used but I ll give you the one I remember Duh I don t even know what to say about that This is not fanfiction lady You can show in a different way that you are writing about a young teenage girl The amount of time I have been rolling my eyes reading shit like this is not normal it should have damaged them But it didn t luckily The heroine Gabriella Bergren probably tried to write about a brave young girl who her readers could relate to but it wasust laughable Gabriella was not brave she was stupid Nothing nothing less She throws herself in every dangerous situation she can forcing the people who love her to risk their lifes If she even acknowledges that later she Im Not Millie! just shrugs it off with an but I didn t ask for that attitude No you didn t but you knew very well they would do it If you don t want to think about your own safety then for goodness sake think about the safety of the people around you Selfish entitled brat in the end she dares to have a mental breakdown Your kidding me right Do I have to feel sorry now Nope sorry not happeningOk lets talk about all those dangerous situations the characters in this novel have to face Do you think for one moment they suffered anything worse then a broken bone One even survived the plague the infamous black death You know The one which killed 30 to 60% of all Europeans back then Not to worry back on his feet in a day or two One likeable fairly major character died throughout the 3 books One Let s repeat that again ONE If you don t want your characters do die Mrs Lisa T Bergren i m sure you could have found yourself a peaceful time in history without war and the black dead knocking on your backdoor It would have made everything a little believable to use your words DUH The last thing im going to throw on the table is the time travel concept Way to easy You can cross it as many times as you want nothing happens You can even take someone with you all they have to do is hold onto you really tight Isn t that great wait for it it also heals you even if your deadly poisoned Welp that s certainly easy Last but certainly not least youust simply bring someone back from the dead by travelling back to before they died and get them the hell out of there That way Gabriella her sister father and mother can be one big happy family in fourteenth century Italy But let s not forget Gabriella shouldn t have it too easy convincing her family why they shouldn t ust go right back to the safe battleplague free 21st century Practical down to earth sissy falls in love too how convenient could have seen that one coming from "The Beginning And Mother "beginning and mother father decide that in modern times we lost the essence of life or some stupid shit like that I need alcohol even thinking about it lots of it Now let me get to bed and cry myself
TO SLEEP AGAIN THAT I WAISTED ALL THAT TIME sleep again that I waisted all that time the river of time series I think a lot of what I could say in this review would be rehash from my previous book in the series Gabi is awesome Lia is awesome Luca is awesome and Marcello is awesome They all stay pretty consistent throughout the series Gabi is faced with obstacles and there are some big decisions that have to be made view spoilerI like the addition of her parents in this one while they don t play a huge role it is nice to see their family all together again It gives Gabi extra strength and motivation to keep going hide spoiler The concept of this book could have been really good I read this one because after hating the middle book I wanted to finish the series as a whole to see how the end turned out I still think the first book is the strongest of the three This one is probably ust as awkward as the second book sadly Time travel is never an easy thing to write about The language the author puts into her main characters head seems so mo Just as rockin awesome as the first time through Lord Greco wasOH MY WORD awesome Loved falling for him all over again I can t wait till Tributary comes out More Lord Greco Yay Favourite uote And yet this is part of it too This deep dark grief it kind of shakes you up makes you appreciate life love It opens your heartThe River of Time is one of my favourite series so I was super excited to get my hands on an early copy of the final installment Torrent And what an incredible read It was everything I hope for and so much Again Lisa Tawn Bergren has written another exciting and suspense filled plot There are so many pulse pounding moments as Gabi and her love ones are never far from danger But it isn t ust action and adventure but also a insightful and meaningful story It
REMINDS YOU TO APPRECIATE EVERY MOMENT YOU HAVEGOSH I you to appreciate every moment you haveGosh I these characters They are the type you admire and who inspire you to be a better person It is always hard to pick a favourite out of this outstanding bunch but it would have to be Gabi with her strength courage and kindness She really has grown and mature so much in the series Then you have Marcello and he is much than ust an Italian hottie He is smart loyal brave and has such C battles and fallen in love with handsome knights willing to do anything to keep them aliveThey've returned with their mother to the present to save their father before his tragic death and now the family travels back to the place that holds the girls' hearts. Beautiful and caring soul In this installment Gabi s family plays such a large part of the story It is great to read a book with such strong and positive family presence Now talk about swoon Torrent had plenty of heart melting moments And I was surprised as another character tempted my heart away from Marcello which I thought impossible I wish I could say but I don t want to spoil the book for you I am hoping and begging that Lisa Tawn Bergren will decide to write this character a spin off series because I am in love againOverall Torrent was amazing My favourite out of the three and a perfect end to an unforgettable series If you like stories full of adventure and romance then this is a must read Amber please click view spoilerLord Greco is all mine hide spoiler If haven t said it before I will say it again stands on soap box I LOVE THIS SERIES I am convinced this needs to be a movie seriesI had bittersweet feeling when I started Torrent because I thought it was the last book in the series and I wasn t ready to say goodbye But thanks to my awesome goodreads friends I see It s not over y all dances There s novellas and a book 4 lol I m soooo excitedEvery book I read in the series Transnasal Endoscopic Skull Base and Brain Surgery just gets better and better Gabriella Marcello Luca and Lia areust my favorite I feel like I ve seen them really grow into their own in this third installment This book really deals with the tense political climent between Siena and Florence in the mid to late 1300s You see Marcello and Gabriella taking key roles in a growing war I love how Bergren integrates real history throughout the story But don t worry there is still plenty of awesome action and heartfelt drama mixed in There are so many major things happening in this book I don t want to spoil it All In have to say is read this series Torrent was definitely my favorite book in the River of Time series so far D There was so much going on in this book compared to the others At least to me anyway P I never wanted to put it down and when I had to I couldn t stop thinking about it I felt connected to the characters and the world in this book and I could easily picture all of the beautiful scenery of Siena Italy A big plus for me in this book is that we got to see of Lord Greco Rodolfo And I have to say that I really did enjoy his character because he made the story waaaaay interesting P And is it bad that I kind of liked Lord Greco better than Marcello Lol okaaay maybe not better I Souvenirs de dbauches just thought that he made the story a little fun and it kept me on the edge of my seat I amust being honest lol But of course I still love Gabi with Marcello I mean who wouldn t Marcello is so sweet and you can tell that he really loves her Another thing I loved about this book is that we Got To See The Whole Betarrinis Family Together And I to see the whole Betarrinis family together and I that Gabi and Lia s parents were so sweet I am a little sad
"That We Didn T Get To See "we didn t get to see Lia and Luca in this book But hopefully there will be of them in the others D Now I ust need to order the last two books and I will be good to go I really can t wait to get my hands on Bourne Tributary as soon as I can Spoil Free ReviewAfter Cascades emotional and fantastic ending Gabi and Lia find themselves racing back to 14th Century Italy For Gabi she is racing back to her true love for Lia she races back to save her family and an unspoken romance that has risen in her own heart Coming back this time however will have its conseuences getting back home will be almost impossible and perhaps out of the uestion now that a life hangs in the balanceGabi knows her family will be making a huge sacrifice to stay in ancient Italy but also knows she tied to Marcello in a way that cant be broken that is until events change the political atmosphere surrounding Marcello and the nation of Sienna With a shocking wrench thrown into the plotting Gabi s life may take a completely new direction than she ever imagined While those who love her fight back and Gabi risks everything the torrent that threatens to devour them all rears it ugly headMy favorite of three Torrent was a fast rollercoaster of emotion shocking plot twists and a gorgeous well done end I cant review any of the stuff that made Torrent what it was due to not spoiling it for readers is all I can say is that things happened that I wanted to happen and things happened that shocked me Lisa threw in some added drama for Gabi that she needed in order to truly see what being with Marcello would mean she also by the end grew Gabi into a fully developed character that shreds the last lingering thoughts of a 21st century teenager yet still maintains her spunk bravery and courageNow that Ive finally docked the boat after being on a river that turns spins crashes rips you under with its current and then gently calms you with its tranuility I must say reading the River of Time series has been a
marvelous adventure I love these novels than cake and that s saying a lot Lisa Bergren with her adventure I love these novels than cake and that s saying a lot Lisa Bergren with her Master skills at romance history that doesn t put me to sleep and action that umps off the pages had me at page one in Waterfall made me fall in love in Cascade and stole my heart with Torrent This is a series that will stick with you long after you finish. Medieval Italy But remaining there means facing great risk as the battle for territory wages on and the Black Plague looms Will the Betarrinis truly be willing to risk it all Or in facing death head on will they discover life as it was always meant to be live. ,
What a rushA rush of excitement A rush of intensity A rush of exhilaration Torrent the third book in the River of Time series by Lisa T Bergren was the perfect ending to a story that has captured our hearts and minds eliciting a fervor from us that we never expected when we picked up Waterfall the first in the series The final book in a series is always the most delicate It must be well crafted and live up to those beginning books that so captured our interest while closing out the story and giving us any missing pieces of the puzzle The development and pacing must be sure footed making us glad that we followed along for as long as we haveMsBergren hits it center faced with Torrent and after the electrifying words of Cascade it was all I could hope for from the third installment Each bo Oh My Word The She Wolves of Siena are BACK If you ve heard me talk about the River of Time series before you know I thought Waterfall was awesome and Cascade was awesome erbut I think Torrent was awesome est Each book Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary just kept getting better and better and better Starting Torrent sometime in the afternoon I did not stop reading till I finished it Clinging to the pages in breathless suspense I devoured the new adventures that Gabi and Lia go through with their guys Marcello and Luca I ve said it before but I m saying it again this is a series you do NOT want to missAll the characters wereust as amazing as in the previous books I loved the twist of Gabi being forced to marry one of Marcello s enemies I kept willing her not to give up on her man All the adventures were new and had twists in the plot nearly every way they turned No one can accuse Lisa Bergren s plots of getting monotonous boring or clich When you pick up Waterfall Cascade or Torrent you Sherman Tank Manual just have to hold onto your seat and prepare for a wild rideAll the tension and suspense wrapped up in Torrent would be enough to break the weak of heart But as all River of Time fans know none of the Betarrini s are weak Each one bears up under all odds In a very hedge sort of way Gabi is told that not only will she be forced to marry the enemy of Marcello but that several prominent men would watch the consummation to ensure the plan was carried all the way out Awful thought if you ask me But then again that was the way it was back then Marriage was important and to successfully marry Gabi away from Marcello would ve aided the Firenze s plans While it might seem crudeTMI to include I m thankful Lisa doesn t ignore the gritty facts of the medieval periodThere was sensual tension in Torrent then the others as both Marcello and Gabi are itching to get married There are several heated kisses and Gabi even raises the uestion why they have to wait for their wedding night but Marcello instantly rejects the idea My respect for them went up There s also a scene where the husband is helping his wife undress for the night They begin kissing and the scene cuts off as they fall into bed Lord Rodolfo Greco was introduced in the last half of Cascade and I really liked how while he was on Firenze s side he was really trying to help Marcello and Siena A double agent Yes I admit it there sust something about the slightly bad boys that I love I was so excited to see Lord Greco back in Torrent I fell in love with him all over
again I know Gabi was in love with Marcello but man RodolfoI know Gabi was in love with marcello but man rodolfo can be with Marcello but man Rodolfo can be While I always liked Marcello and Luca I never felt head over heels for them But I sure do with Rodolfo He was totally awesomeWhile I was so sad to see this series come to an end I couldn t have been pleased with how Lisa left the She Wolves of Siena It made me want to find my own time capsule transportation and go back in time with them and find Lord Greco of course I know the River of Time series will forever be a favorite of mine and one that I will read over and over and over again Lisa Bergren has written a winner with this series An enchanting time period a complex and uniue plot and in depth characters that leap from the pages all come together to make an AMAZING and award worthy book Don t miss out Seriously They need to be read in order to get the whole effect but all are totally awesome and Torrent is sure to sweep you off your feet Words Let Me Feed You just can t do this seriesustice I finished the first 3 books a while ago but I feel that I need to write this review I know mine will not matter much but I need to try to get the number of stars down because it definitely doesn t deserve an average of 424 I mean come on Do you know who has around the same amount Diana Gabaldon Are you really going to tell me that her Outlander series is eual to this one Let me tell you this it s not even coming close If you want to read a GREAT time travel novel with admirable characters Read Outlander it will not disappointI have never been disappointed in a book I picked based on goodreads reviews I was expecting a lot because of that I probably shouldn t have the last mortal instrument got 449 Five Days at Memorial just looked that one up haven t yet read it probably will never either butudging her previous it should have never even gotten close to that or maybe I outgrew the Young Adult genre I don t know but Lisa Tawn Bergren Its Passover, Grover! just didn t deliver. Would you sacrifice your future for an uncertain pastGabriella and Evangelia Betarrini areust two normal American teenagers Normal except for the fact that they time travel to fourteenth century Italy where they've lived in castles become swept up in histori.
