The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series.
The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time travelers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order.
With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does.
But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn’t an object. It’s a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last?
My thoughts: I love this series, which begins with Hourglass, then Timepiece, and now the second installment. Once again, Egmont did a fabulous job with the cover. Gorgeous. Here’s what I had to say about Hourglass: Hourglass is a fabulous YA novel that involves fascinating characters, time travel, adventure, and romance. Plenty of good versus evil. And for a pleasant surprise, a cover that fits beautifully with the storyline of the book. McEntire’s writing draws you into the story and the pace keeps you turning the pages. I highly recommend this one!
And Timepiece: Read the ARC, which was loaned to me by a friend. And all I can say for now is WAY TO GO Myra McEntire! Was so surprised to discover that Kaleb narrated this second book in the HOURGLASS series. Loved it. Since the novel isn’t coming out until June, 2012 I will wait to update my review until then. But let me urge everyone to get their hands on and read HOURGLASS asap!!! and add TIMEPIECE to your “to-read” list. This series will completely suck you in.
Oh, and isn’t the cover just gorgeous??? The designer nailed it!
So, now I can’t wait to find out what happens with all the amazing characters and the Hourglass organization!
