Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples—cracks in time. Are Kaleb’s powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before Kaleb can find out, Jonathan Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?

In the wake of Landers’s return, the Hourglass organization is offered an ultimatum by a mysterious man. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered—with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.

Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their extraordinary powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? Even if they succeed, just finding him may not be enough. . . . The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science-fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.
HOURGLASS was one of my favorite reads of 2011 and I couldn’t wait to delve back into the wondrous world that McEntire had created. I fell in love with the characters and after some shocking revelations; I had to find out what would happen next. This series is unlike any that I’ve read and it’s so refreshing to read more about the Hourglass.

One of the reasons that I enjoy this series as mentioned above is because of the lovable characters. One character in particular immediately grabbed my attention and became one of my favorites. So guess how excited I was to learn that this book was written in his perspective. Kaleb is one hot tamale! He embodies what I love in fictional characters. He has the bad boy, tortured soul factor which I eat up every time. It was great to see things through his eyes; it made me fall for him all over again.

We learn so many things in this book about the Hourglass and its members. There are consequences that come into play as a result of Emerson’s decisions to go back and change things in the first installment which opens up a whole can of possibilities some not so good. This book wrapped up nicely but I know the next installment is going to be a whopper just by the revelation that was revealed in the end. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
