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.  

Goodreads Summary

The only bad thing about this book?  That the series is over!  I loved every single part of these books and am extremely sad to see them over.  However, this book is something to look forward to.  The last in The River of Time Series, this book is the continuation of Gabi and Lia's time traveling escapades. 

Gabi and Lia have better control over their time traveling abilities.  They go back in time to get their father, previously deceased...then they had back to the fourteenth century.  Marcello is still as charismatic and handsome as ever, he always has to rescue Gabi.  Gabi and Lia aka The She-Wolves of Siena are in constant danger; they were attacked periodically throughout the book.  This book has no lack of action.  The reader will be entertained and involved in the outcome of these attacks. 

The relationship with Gabi and Marcello continues to develop to the point of love, as does Lia's and Luca's.  Their sweet and somewhat innocent romance is perfect for this book and also allows reader from ages 13-20+ to enjoy Torrent.  The characters are very well-developed, the reader will grow attached to them.  The secondary characters are just as interesting to get to know.  Some are devious and evil, others are more neutral and/or their intentions are obscured, and others are simply charming. 

The book is situated in Italy and the author clearly did her research; the book is full of subtle historical facts that provide detail without sounding like a history lesson.
The events are fast-paced, the reader will finish this book quickly as it is impossible to put down!  The ending...I couldn't have imagined it any other way.  This book is recommended to teens/young adults/adults.
