Reviewed by: Roxanne

Synopsis:

No time like the present.

No time in the present.

No time left.

From the moment the Hourglass group violated the rules of the space time continuum to rescue a murdered loved one, time has been in flux. People from other centuries slide into our time, intruding into our space, threatening our world.

Frantically seeking a way to turn back this tide, the Hourglass begins a search for the legendary Infinityglass, tracking it to the city of New Orleans, a place where the past rests easily with the present.

Quiet, reliable Dune, the group’s favorite geek, is selected to travel to the Crescent City and somehow retrieve the renowned object.

But there’s a problem.

Because the Infinityglass is not an object, it’s a person.

A beautiful, headstrong dancer named Hallie, a girl so enticing Dune can’t take his eyes off her.

And time is not on her side.

Quick & Dirty: Time is not on their side…

Opening Sentence: “The only reason you want my help is so you can see my girls in a corset,”I said.”

Excerpt: No

The Review:

The third Hourglass novel sticks with the previous two novels and offers to new POV. Hallie, who we soon find out is the Infinityglass and Dune who is Hourglass’s expert on the Infinityglass. Hallie can change her appearance, which is why she has been pulling jobs for dad with the help of her best friend, Poe. Dune has just discovered that the Infinityglass is not a what, but a who with the help of Hallie’s father. Dune has been placed in her life as a bodyguard to keep her safe from her mother.

Although they soon realize that she already knows she is in the Infinityglass and that her mother wants something from her. As time continues to unravel all around them, and the rips in time being so attracted to Hallie, will they be able to figure it all out in time?

Sigh, so plus side this was my favorite novel of the bunch, so if you are a fan you will enjoy the conclusion. I will knock out what I didn’t like about the series as a whole. First, switching POV’s with every book. It works really well for some trilogies, it didn’t work for me with this one. Also, I felt like the time travel was kind of random and all over the place. I just feel plain confused by the entire series, and mainly I mean what was the point? That being said, these are really my only complaints.

Hallie and Dune were probably my favorite couple besides Emerson and Michael. I did love seeing all of the main characters back in this novel and taking such a big part. I really do like the time travel aspect and the consequences of their actions. The rips in time totally had my attention, and the possessions were downright freaky at times. I was on the edge of my seat at times trying to figure out what was going to happen.

Notable Scene:

“The dead had come back to life. Time had been rewritten. The space time continuum had been damaged. Anyone with the basic gene could see ripples; imprints of people from the past, which has turned into entire scenes, streets full of people, even buildings. These rips were getting worse. Their latest evolution had trapped Michael and Em inside one, and they barely escaped. Liam’s answering smile was more of a grimace. “Too true. There is one thing we haven’t discussed, and it should’ve priority. Is it going to be difficult for you to be near so much water?”

Hourglass Series:

1. Hourglass

2. Timepiece

3. Infinityglass
