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 devastating 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…
The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts
When I heard Timepiece would be narrated by Kaleb, my hopes plummeted. I wanted more Emerson and Michael. I wanted more of her and more of them.
Myra McEntire knows how to weave a story. She knows how to give a character life and make each character unique.
Timepiece is a masterpiece. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Hourglass, but it certainly took my expectations and dumped them upside-down. Kaleb’s point of view didn’t differ much from Emerson, but the differences were there. Kaleb was an interesting character, for sure. But the plot is what had me. I stuck a toe in to test the waters and it pulled me in. In wrenched me deep into its intricacies and had me gasping for air. As it will have you.
The age-old sci-fi element of time travel takes a paranormal twist. And the paranormal powers plaguing YA flips across the sci-fi border. Myra McEntire’s brain knows no limits when it comes to writing. Timepiece takes the story seeded in Hourglass to a whole new level, with a new set of characters and an even deeper plot twist than before.
Thrilling. Riveting. Pulse-pounding. The descriptions are never-ending and positive. Recommended for those who read and loved Hourglass, Timepiece is a must-read sequel.
