I am so addicted to the River of Time series, to the characters… I devoured Bourne as soon as I got my hands on it! Bourne picks up right where Torrent ends, and in true River of Time fashion, I was immediately taken back to 14th century Italy.
Bourne, unlike the other novels, alternates between Gabi and Lia’s perspectives. I LOVED this… I loved getting to know Lia more, and seeing her and Luca’s relationship from the inside. Also, Lia’s modern day references had me snickering! I really enjoyed seeing more of Grecco in this novella too, and can’t wait for Tributary (book #4, title may not be final) to get more of his story.
I feel like all my reviews for the River of Time books say the same thing… but it’s true… these books are all made up of fantastic story-telling, sweet romance, and action that keeps you glued to the page! This story – these characters – remind you that life is short, a gift, and to look for and hold on to the light/love/hope where you can find it.
Bourne is a fantastic novella – generous in length (1/3 the size of full novel) – and will leave you pining for more. This is a must-read for River of Time fans!
