Review: Deluge by Lisa T. Bergren

About the book:
WARNING TO MY BELOVED RIVER TRIBE: HARD THINGS HAPPEN IN THIS BOOK. Get your Kleenex ready...If you're not ready for some special characters to perish from plague and in battle, you won't want to read it. Seriously. You can walk away now and we can part as friends. BUT, that said, there's also a ton of romance and suspense and fun too! To embrace life, and live it to the fullest, we must appreciate the day--and occasionally face down death--and our beloved Forellis and Betarrinis learn that all over again. Ready? Ready. We can DO this... --Lisa

IT'S ONE THING TO BATTLE FOR LIFE...BUT WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN DEATH ITSELF COMES HUNTING?

The Bettarinis and Forellis have found rich fulfillment together in medieval Italia. But after fighting off countless enemies, they now must face the worst foe of all. As the Black Death closes in upon them, threatening everything and everyone they hold dear, Lia and Gabi–and the knights they love–must dig deep within to decide how they might remain safe…and if they need to risk it all in order to truly live as they’re called.

My thoughts:

Deluge had been one of my most anticipated reads for a long time (since I heard about it, really). I could not wait for this next (and hopefully not last) installment in the River of Time series. I was nervous starting it because of the warning Lisa gives us in the description...really nervous. 

Still, I dived into the story and I'm so glad I did! Yes, there's a lot of death and danger in Deluge, but that made the story realistic and Lisa's warning prepared me to expect tragic things.

Luca has been my favorite character from this series since probably the first book. I loved him in Deluge, too, and he's still my favorite. Love how he is so sweet to Lia and just a really fun guy. I also loved all of the main characters and seeing how much they've changed since book one.

Overall, Deluge may possibly be my favorite book of the series -- it was so good and I loved it! I'm hoping for more books with these characters (maybe a spin-off series??), but if this is the end I'll still be really happy. What a fabulous series this has been! I definitely recommend it! 
*I did not get this book for review. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

  1. I'm REALLY glad the main characters don't die because when I saw Lisa's warning I decided against reading it! I have to reread the series first before starting this one because it's been sooooooo long since I read them! Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I like to give it a try! :)

  2. I finished this a couple days ago and I could not love it more! I doubt their will be anymore to the series, but all good things must come to an end. And all great things, such as Deluge, will be remembered by people like us forever.
