Torrent by Lisa T Bergren with US giveaway

Synopsis:~

When Gabi and Lia finally learn to surf the river of time, they realize they must make hard choices about life and love in the third and final book in the River of Time series.

Gabi and Lia Betarrini have learned to control their time travel, and they return from medieval Italy to save their father from his tragic death in modern times. 

But love calls across the centuries, and the girls are determined to return forever-even though they know the Black Plague is advancing across Europe, claiming the lives of one-third of the population. In the suspenseful conclusion of the River of Time series, every decision is about life and death. 

My take:~

Lisa T Bergren has captivated my heart, soul and mind with the stunning conclusion to her epic River of Time series.  Torrent hurtles readers back to medieval Italy with Gabi and Lia, this time with parents in tow.   Intrigue, corruption, secret societies and one gorgeous but ambiguous villain intensify the danger and romance, as Lisa weaves twists and turns together with heart pounding adventure into another unique and thrilling tale.  While penned for teens, this series' appeal extends to any reader who craves exceptional storytelling, brilliant characterisation and a legendary love story.  Torrent left me both breathless and invigorated and as much as I would love to say more, there is no way I am spoiling the adventure for those who haven't yet read Waterfall and Cascade, but will say I was both surprised and delighted by the conclusion of the series.  That said, nothing would please me more than to hear that Lisa is able to write more books in a new series about the Bettarini women, the Forelli knights and said ambiguous villain!  I can't wait to dive back in to this amazing series ~ that is how fabulous they are.

Thanks for the contest! Considering Ms. Bergen is on your "Top 10 Authors to Read" and that I don't have this book, it might inspire me to add a new author to the TBR pile! :)

Thanks for hosting!
