Waiting On Wednesday: 1.26.11

Well, I can break out of a book slump long enough to do a WoW post. :)

Waterfall: A Novel (River of Time Series)by Lisa T. Bergren

About the Book (from "Gabriella has never spent a summer in Italy like this one.
Remaining means giving up all she’s known and loved…
and leaving means forfeiting what she’s come to know…and love itself.

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Bentarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives with their parents, famed Etruscan scholars, among the romantic hills. Stuck among the rubble of medieval castles in rural Tuscany on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds… until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

And thus does she come to be rescued by the knight-prince Marcello Falassi, who takes her back to his father’s castle—a castle Gabi has seen in ruins in another life. Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting. But what do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?"

I have a thing for time travel, so I was instantly intrigued by this one. The cover is interesting, but I saw the book for the second book (out in July) and it is really, really pretty. Is it bad I might read this only so I can read the second book? Hehe.

Waterfall: A Novel (River of Time Series)will be officially released on February 1st, but according to you can order it from them right now:
