I’ve been eagerly awaiting this next chapter of the River of Time Series ever since I finished Torrent and realized that more was on the way! I was so excited when Lisa T. Bergren announced that there would be an e-novella!
I must confess I was a little nervous that perhaps Bourne wouldn’t have the same feel of the other three books ~ that maybe something would have changed or that I wouldn’t like Lia’s point-of-view. Nah. My fears were unfounded and my expectations surpassed! I finished Bourne in a day and Lisa T. Bergren had me cheering, sighing, laughing, wincing, and rooting for the characters the whole way through ~ as usual!
The turmoil, the triumph, the laughs, the life in this book just dazzle from he first word. I loved every minute of this story! My favorite part was how I felt so much ~ Gabi’s realization that she bears certain responsibilities, Lia’s wrestling with seeing a different side of Luca ~ all the heartache and joy just blasted from the page (er, screen).
My only complaint is that Bourne is about 1/3 the size of the other three River of Time novels and I was so not ready for the ending! That said, it was a great ending. At one point, I was reading through my fingers because I was so nervous…but that’s all I’ll say! No spoilers!
