Torrent - Lisa Tawn Bergren

*Read the full review at Witchmag's Boekenplank*


On the first of September I was very happy, Torrent was finally available! Only to find out that Amazon hadn’t put the Kindle version online yet… I actually had to wait a few days more for this great ending!


A lot happened this time in the story and so quickly, that I had a bit of a problem with keeping up. Although I got the feeling that the story was a repeat of what happened in Waterfall and Cascade. The Firenzi’s are making trouble, Gabi tries to help, fights a bit, flees for her enemies till Marcello saves her and all is well again. Okay, that’s not exactly how the story went, but it is the red line in this book, just like the other two books.


Not that the story was any less fun to read, but it became predictable. And I don’t like predictable… Of course there some unexpected twists, that I didn’t see coming at all and some upset me very much…


Gabriella has grown a lot compared to the previous book, even though she continues to act first and think afterwards. Oh well it’s probably her personality. I continue to admire her for wanting to protect her friends and family at all costs and her love for Marcello. I don’t know if I would have done the same if I was in her shoes.


Marcello *deep sigh* he continues to be the knight in shining armor, although he has some very old-fashioned beliefs about how women should behave. Thankfully he allows Gabi to be herself, otherwise she would have started a rebellion, I just know it . I still don’t have a clue how old he is. Does anyone have an idea?


Overall rating 3 HEARTS. The story was great, but as I said a little too predictable. I like it when books continue to surprise me and although there were some very surprising moments in this book, the red thread was too visible for me. I’m glad to announce that this probably won’t be the last book about the she-wolfs! Lisa T. Bergren posted on her website the first chapter of the fourth book, Tributary!
