Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

24 Apr

I absolutely love this cover!

Brief synopsis: 17-year-old, Emerson (what an awesome name for a girl in my opinion) sees shadows from the distant past… But those are just the start of a whole ability for time travel. Along the way she meets Michael, from the Hourglass organization, and he helps her learn her true power and what it can do to save his world from falling apart as well as protect others like herself.

This book was awesome! I know it has its fair share of critics, but I really liked it. I thought the concepts were fresh and the characters were interesting. Emerson does occasionally have some “Bella-esque” qualities, but she is after all a 17-year-old girl. Plus Myra McEntire’s writing skills are far superior to Stefanie Meyer’s! The twist on more traditional time traveling fiction was really interesting and much more complicated than the usual “time-machine” scenario.

I am very much looking forward to the sequel Timepiece (due June 2012).

Rating: didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing (my current rating)
