A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking.
Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples - cracks in time. Are his powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before he 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' return, the Hourglass organization is given an ultimatum. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on the 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 unusual powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough...
Why I Chose This Book:
I wanted a novel based in Tennessee. It has been several years since I read Hourglass, book one in the series, but I remember how much I loved it. Myra McEntire is an amazing author, the covers are perfect.
What I Loved:
The main characters are each struggling with conflict in their lives. Alcoholism, mental health, feeling needed, trust issues. They are overcoming their weaknesses one day at a time. The Hourglass novels have an interesting premise of time travel mixed with physics and individual paranormal gifts. Both male and female readers will be pulled in.
What I Would Change:
Read these books in succession. It’s hard picking back up on the series after five years. I had forgotten a lot of the plot line. There are some light horror-like moments which I didn’t like, but I’m not a fan of anything scary ;0
Oh, Myra McEntire how I have missed this series! I ordered book number three so I can continue on Kaleb and Emerson’s adventure. Why did I wait so long?
Swearing, drinking, moderate violence, heavy kissing and reference to sex.
About the Author
Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated. She’s chosen, instead, to channel her “mad word skills” into creating stories. She’s an avid Doctor Who fan and will argue passionately about which incarnation is the best.
