Review & Giveaway! Tributary by Lisa T. Bergren!!!



Tributary by Lisa T. Bergren
Series: River of Time (#3.2)
Amazon / B&N / Smashwords / Goodreads

About the book:

TRIBUTARY, a novella (1/2 the length of a normal novel), picks up a year after BOURNE... Lia struggles to overcome the fear that constant battle has heaped upon her; Gabi and Marcello face an unexpected crisis; and Lord Greco just may be ready to leave the grief and loss of his past behind him, so that he might grab hold of the future... Volume 3.2 of the River of Time series.

My thoughts:

The River of Time series is one of THE BEST series I've read so far! Tributary, the newest addition, was no exception because the greatness continued in this novella!

My favorite characters from this series have pretty much always been Lia and Luca (he's on the cover of Tributary) and I was so glad that a majority of this story featured them. Oh, and the scene where Luca gets a haircut courtesy of Lia was hilarious and probably one of my favorites! I just loved it!

Filled with romance, suspense, action, humor, and so much more, Tributary held my attention throughout and is now one of my favorite books! It seems like with each addition the series just gets better and better. Bourne used to be my favorite in the series, but I now think Tributary is - it was THAT good!

I am desperately hoping for more River of Time books because one: I love the series, and two: Lia's story doesn't seem "finished" (in my opinion). So... Lisa, PLEASE write more!!!

If you are a fan of YA, time-travel, or romance/fantasy novels, you should definitely read this series. All of the books are great and I think they should be read in order because otherwise there would be major spoilers.

*I received a complimentary PDF copy from the author for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. I also purchased a Kindle copy via Amazon.com. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
Book giveaway!




One winner will win their choice of one of the River of Time books - Waterfall (Print or eBook), Cascade (Print or eBook), Torrent (Print or eBook), Bourne (eBook only), or Tributary (eBook only).

  71. WOW! Based on the number of comments, this must really be a great series! I like your blog, too. It's nice and clean, not cluttered with stuff in every corner like so many I've seen. I'm throwing my name in the hat, although I won't be able to do most of the options on Raffle Copter, because I don't (and won't) join any of the so-called social networking sites (I had a bad experience with FB).

    Have a great day!

  82. I enjoyed the first 3, but the 4th one was the best. It had the most spiritual elements of any of them, making it much more of a Christian Teen Fiction book. I'm hoping #5 is the best yet! I'm quite eager to read it!
