    Ms. Bergren has done it again!

    EPIC. That was the first word that came to mind when I finished Cascade. I didn't think it was possible to love a book more than I loved Waterfall, but Ms. Bergren proved me wrong. This book was even better than Waterfall. The stakes were raised even higher in this installment. Gabi and Marcello are forced to really think about the direction of their relationship. For Gabi to stay in the past, she would have to force her family to stay with her. She would also have to start thinking about marriage-people got married at a much younger age back then (they also died earlier). When the three Betarrini women travel back in time, they find themselves in the middle of a war. No one is safe; especially the "She-wolves of Siena." Gabi and Lia are confronted with numerous obstacles in this sequel. The enemies of Siena are constantly hunting them. As a source of hope for the people of Siena, Marcello and Luca, the girls must survive. I'm going to stop talking about the plot here, because there is just too much that happens and I really don't want to spoil it for anyone. Just know that there are three things the girls are up against: 1) The plague, 2) the war, and 3) the choice to either go back to the present or stay in the past.
    Okay, now for my gushing! I. Love. Marcello. I might have said that in my Waterfall review, but I don't care. It's true! Ms. Bergren created a hero that is charming, swoon-worthy, and...Italian! All my favorite scenes involved Marcello. Ahhh, I'm smiling just thinking about him. Ms. Bergren did add a new potential swoon-worthy guy, Lord Greco. His status in the book is a bit complicated, so I'll just say this: YUM! Yep, he has the whole Ash (from the Iron Fey series) attitude. He's goal-oriented, sly, and is more than meets the eye. He is charged with capturing the Betarrini women. After accepting the task, he finds out that this is much harder than it seems.
    Cascade was exhilarating! The story never stalled. I was constantly turning the page wondering what happened next. Whenever Gabi overcame one obstacle, there were two more waiting for her on the next page. Just when I thought "Thank God they made it!" the suspense comes creeping back. Usually authors have an action scene then a relationship scene. Ms. Bergren effortlessly blends the two together. The reader feels the urgency the characters are feeling, throughout the book. This made me feel like I was a part of the story; like I was right there in the battlefield/forest. This sequel was much more emotional than Waterfall. Ms. Bergren was not afraid to kill off characters. Gabi, as well as Lia and their mother, had to deal with death at a much closer and bloody level. They begin to realize how tragic and dangerous this war is. They have a responsibility towards the people of Siena whether they like it or not. Whatever Gabi felt, I felt. I could feel her pain and sadness over each death. War is so tragic; it was heartbreaking to read it through Gabi's POV. I couldn't put the book down! The only problem was that it ended. Ms. Bergren took me on an exciting adventure that I will never forget!

    Is a must read

    I may not be far in this book, but it is a really awethome (awesome) book. Try to read it abd you will understand why I am in love with book. Al try reading the MazeRunner seiries, it pretty much can match this book try & you'll like it, and as the old saying goes....don't judge a book by its cover.

    What I loved most about this book, is that it had me on the edge

    What I loved most about this book, is that it had me on the edge of my seat from the first chapter. It was a whirlwind of a book, as Gabi and Lia find themselves running from one adventure and into another.  Gabi also went through a tremendous growth in her personality, and comes out on the other end for the better.  In the mean time her mom has a few surprises for the girls, she's not all scientific but have stronger metal lying underneath. Marcello and Luka risk all to save the Gabi and Lia from an aweful fate, if I say anymore I'd give it all away.  Let's say that with great sacrifice comes great love.  The ending left me wanting for more, simply having to know what was going to happen. Definitely a great read, and I'd recommend it to anyone. It is clean and romantic, but nothing that tweens can't also enjoy, so family friendliness is a 5 in my book. You can feel comfortable reading this with your tween.

    great read

    The story continues when the Gabi convinces her sister and mother to help her get back to the fourteenth century where Marcello is. At one point through their adventures in the 14th century Gabi, Lia and their mother decide that with the time travel maybe they can return to the present century and then with correct timing return to before their father died in an automobile accident and rescue him. The suspense and romance really intensify as the 3 ladies succeed in returning to the present time before their husband and father died. They then decide to try and return to the 14th century so they can remain together

    Awsome!

    I loved the first book and could not wait to get my hands on the second. I found the tone of this book to be a bit more serious then the first. The plot thickens as gabi and marcello's relationship progress and enimies become anxious for the she- wolves blood. But i found this book to be even better than the first.

    Another great book

    I was so happy that I could read this book right after i finished the first. This series is full of adventure and romance but not mushy just right. These books keep you thinking about the characters and how this will turn out for them.
    This book is anout two sisters the men they love and medieval knights, battle, power and how these two sisters create a family in a completely different world they have come from. Just donwload the sample and youll be hooked its worth every penny!

    Great read!

    This book was just as good as the first. I started it and just couldn't put it down. It is the kind of book that a person can lose sleep over. The author did a wonderful job; can't wait to read the next one.

    Favorite Series Ever

    Cascade is a fantastic book, and it is highly recommended, everyone should read it. There is something in it for everyone. Please read Waterfall first though. I love the characters, they seem so real, and Marcello and Gabi are great. I have read a lot of books, but this series is probably my favorite, and I can and probably will read them over and over again {already read the entire series waterfall, cascade, torrent, and bourne twice}. You won't regret reading this books.
