Waiting on…TIMEPIECE by Myra McEntire

Posted 22 February, 2012 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | | 15 Comments

Time travel books can be done really well or really poorly. This series? Done really well. I enjoyed the entire premise and the set-up in HOURGLASS and can’t wait to see what Myra McEntire does within the world she created. It sounds like this book as a different main character (Kaleb versus Emerson) but that Emerson and Michael and the whole Hourglass group show up. Interesting… And I like how the cover follows it’s predecessor, though it looks like the girl’s struggling a bit more to keep her grip on things. I also like the funky angles of the wall and ceiling. It’s rather eye-catching.

YA Paranormal
336 pages, hardcover
Releases on: June 12, 2012
Publisher: EgmontUSA

A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking…

Kaleb Ballard’s relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never before been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb’s powers expanding, or is something very wrong?

Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he’s stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devestating results. Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Jack. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough…

So, what are you waiting on?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  1. I’m share Missie’s yikes, I haven’t read Hourglass yet either! I feel like I can’t keep up with all the amazing books out there, but it sure is fun to try:)

  2. Kaleb’s POV? I’m not exactly sure I want that. I loved Emerson SO much! Oh well, I’m sure I’ll still enjoy this one no matter what. Great pick, Mary!
