Bourne (River of Time #3.1) by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Goodreads Summary: The River of Time Series–a Top 10 Pick for over 20 YA book bloggers in 2011! If you like romance, adventure and a dose of medieval Italian culture, you’ll love WATERFALL (book 1), CASCADE (book 2) and TORRENT (book 3). Hint: They’re not just for teenagers.
BOURNE, a novella (1/3 the length of a normal novel), picks up right where TORRENT left off…Find out what has happened to men returning from the battle, gravely wounded, to the Betarrinis, fighting for the men they love, and just who is hunting them next…

My Views: Phew! This one was heavy, in terms of emotions. Sad, actually. I ended up crying so many times. It’s like an eye-opener after all the previous books, showing the true and ghastly nature of battles and its aftermath. It just shook me up.
Not to say that there’s no romance, banter or life lessons. But it’s just a bit subtle and serious.
It was a bit unsettling to hear Lia’s point of view as I had become accustomed to see it all from Gabs’ eyes. It took me some time to shift between their respective POVs. But it worked well this way as it is a bit more of Lia’s story. And I have always loved Luca.
Gosh, there are so many amazing men in this series. I love at least three of them, if not more. Where are these men in real life, really? Lisa, do they really exist out there or are wiped out by the 700 year leap I made in time?
All said and done, this one has all the goods that the earlier in the series possessed. A must-read.
