Oh. My. I. LOVE. This. Series!!! I cannot tell y’all that enough. This is my favorite series of all time. Everyone needs a book, even better when it’s a series, that really resonates with them. These books have everything I love. The setting in the middle ages in Italy is beautiful. I love that the main characters are also modern because of the accidental time travel so I can really relate to Gabi and Lia when they think things in the Middle Ages are difficult, strange, or out of their comfort zones. I can rave about the entire series all day, but let me get more specific to this book now.
This book is a novella which means it’s 1/3 the length of a normal novel. This was the only part of the book that made me sad . . . that it ended. I can read and re-read these books all day. It was also our first time to hear from Lia’s Point Of View. In the first 3 books we’d only heard from Gabi. I love Lia so it was great fun to hear from her. I look forward to the next book, Tributary, which I think will be all from Lia.
I love the romance and the romantic tension between the characters. Lia and Luca, Gabi and Marcello, Rodolfo and . . . any woman who looks at him. The kissing in this book is most definitely swoon worthy. The characters are so sweet and respectful, I just love it. I liked seeing a different side of Luca this time with more of a leadership role. He also showed some jealously and anger we hadn’t seen from him before. It made me like him even more to see more of him, and of course I still love his humor.
This book is great! Everyone who read the first three in the series needs to read it. If you love to immerse yourself in a great book, this series is for you.
