Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren

Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren

Tuscany, Italy evokes dreams but not for Gabi and Lia who have spent too many summers digging up ancient artifacts and long to be home.  These bored teenagers stumble into an ancient Etruscan tomb and find a passage back in time where they end up in the 14th century.

Gabi is wearing her skinny jeans and looks quite quizzical to the knights fighting each other over land.  In fact her appearance causes quite a stir and the men don't know what to make of this young lady in odd clothing. Lia and Gabi have somehow lost each other in the passage of time.  It becomes Gabi's quest to find Lia yet she is confined by the demands of 14th century society and drawn to the handsome betrothed knight who rescues her.

History meets fantasy in this fun time travel series.  Gabi and Lia are great main characters who try to fit into society but aren't able to suppress their girl power.  The girls enlighten the people of Medieval Italy with their kick-ass girl power and end up endangering their lives. 

This is a clean novel for teenagers with a mix of history, adventure, a sweet love story and strong female characters.  Bergren has created a series for teens and adults that will keep you reading long into the night.   Waterfall may cause you to dream in Medieval speak and think you need to be rescued by a handsome prince when all you really need is a pretty dress, some really good food and this book!  OK, I agree, a sword by your bedside would be nice and maybe you should rescue the prince instead. Touche'!
