River of Time Trilogy

I love to read!  It's my favorite past time.  I don't get to do much of that during the school year, but I've done a lot of it this summer.  I've read a bunch of good books. I seem drawn to Young Adult Fiction this summer. 

This trilogy, River of Time, hooked me with the first book!  And dang it all, I'm just about ready to commit to not reading trilogies, because I go crazy wondering what is going to happen in the next book.  Luckily, the third book, Torrent, comes out in September of this year!  (I won't really stop reading trilogies, just wait for them to all be out!)

The books are about teenage sisters who accidentally find a way to travel through time.  They travel back to 14th Century Italy.  They come during a time of violent war and find themselves fighting for their lives.  They both learn a lot about themselves there. They also learn about love!

The books are action packed and keep you anticipating every move that Gabi will make.  Whether she is fighting for her life or fighting for the man of her dreams. The characters are rich and full of depth.  I'm especially fond of Luca.  Which is slightly funny as he is not the main love interest.  However, I just like his character immensely.
It's a beautifully portrayed piece of historical fiction.  I am attached to the characters and find them entertaining.  I love the girls, because they are strong women and I think that is important to portray to young girls. 

Overall, this is a great summer read.  I would recommend them to any teenage girl! If you have read it, I would love you to comment and hear what you thought!
