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?
I doubted Myra’s POV change once and was completely wrong so I don’t know what made me doubt her again (I was wrong again if anyone cares). The third and final installment of the Hourglass trilogy brings readers 2 new POVs, one being a completely new character and the other being a familiar face. The story picks up right where Timepiece left off with the search for the Infintyglass. We quickly learn the true nature of the Infintyglass and spend a great deal of the rest of the novel figuring out how to use it to fix the problem.
Infinityglass starts off with a bang with Hallie. Hallie is different and that is why I loved her. The first female POV we got was Emerson and Hallie could not be more different. She is reckless and speaks her mind and has a special time gene of her own. Hallie also had me laughing out loud at several points in the book. Another interesting part of Hallie is that her views on the time gene and rips are different than that of the Hourglass gang. It was great to see a view on the time gene that was not connected to Hourglass.
Dune is definitely a strong, silent type and that completely worked for this storyline. Throw Dune and Hallie together and you have a lively pair that has quick witted and snarky conversations but also a pair that connected on a deeper level. Dune shares his past with Hallie, which is quite a difficult feat for him. Dune also knows how to handle Hallie. Most guys can get spooked by Hallie’s ability but Dune accepts it. He is the perfect knight in shining armor for a girl who doesn’t need a knight.
There are plenty of twists, jokes, kisses, special powers, swooning, action, witty banter and more kissing. The story is unique to our two narrators while still bringing in information supplied by our two pervious. My only complaint is that I want more. But then again I almost always want more so don’t listen to me.
This is the section I have left for my fangirl-ing. I can honestly say that Myra McEntire is one of my favorite writers. She is an absolute hoot on Twitter, bringing a perfect amount of fangirl mixed with crazy writer and topped with southern charm. If that wasn’t enough I am totally blown away by Myra’s writing style. I feel like I am part of the Hourglass crew when reading about their journey. I get all of their jokes (even some of the absurd ones) and find myself part of their family. I have laughed with them and even shed a tear or two with them and I can honestly say even though this series wraps up wonderfully I am going to deeply miss reading about this world. Thank you Myra for introducing me to some great friends.
