{Review} Timepiece by Myra McEntire

 Heads up!!! Because I read both books right after each other in 4 days....I am doing a double review. Yes the header says Timepiece but right before I get to the review I am going to do a quick review of book #1 (Hourglass) and the trailer section will be devoted to Hourglass as well because well...there is no Timepiece trailer! lol So, I just wanted to give you guys a for-warning before gettin started! Thanks! :)

Pages: 336
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. {Goodreads}

Hourglass Review:
 I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into when I picked up Hourglass. I was kinda confused about what it was actually about...ghosts or time-travel? Or could it be both? Then I read it and everything made sense! This is series the most unique book I have ever read!! Myra is a complete genius! She kinda has to be to think up something like this. No. Scratch that. Because not only did she think up something like this but also because she could explain it...through science! Real or not made sense. Sometimes we create fiction but have no way to explain it but by...fiction! But Mrs. McEntire does a amazing job trying to bring science into's more believable when it can be explained right? Right! Wow! Ya it was pretty freaking genius!

 Not only was the plot and idea so unique but also the writing style and all the characters! Myra McEntire is one of those rare (and loved) authors who can pull off the description of writing in perfection...remember when I ranted about Julie Kagawa and the differences between writing styles (comparisons [too much or too little] and vocabulary [again too little or too much])? Yes!? Good! No!? Here ya go...5th paragraph...! Well anyways...with that being said/shown Myra is in the perfection catagory!! Yippee!!! Her descriptions/comparisons were perfectly done! No trouble! Her vocabulary was also! Ya, she had me going to the dictionary more than 3 times but...that's my fault! I have a TERRIBLE vocabulary! (that and a spelling problem...but! working on it don't worry haha) 

 Now for the characters: Emerson was awesome!! I seriously didn't think she would be as awesome as she was! I totally had her pinned out to be someone else before reading the book (do you ever do that? Imagine the character a certain way just based in the synopsis?) She was so fierce! And a bit abusive haha She could hold her own that's for darn sure! Hahaha her and Michael's first talk was the BEST thing ever! I laughed my freaking butt off! Goodness that was awesome! Haha and also her second..third? I dont remember...the scene when they are running(you'll know when you read it or if you have) Funny stuff! Michael was awesome! He wasn't my favorite and too be honest....I liked Kaleb for Emerson...Michael had this temper thing that kinda bugged but Kaleb and Emerson's  relationship just flowed! Idk o well! I'll talk about that later! 

 Finally......Sorry this "quick" review  ended up being a lot bigger than anticipated hehe! You all need to go get this book now! I completely regret reading this book so late! Hourglass is a beautiful unique gift that has you seeing time-travel through new eyes! It did a 180 on my interpretation of time-travel for sure. I seriously can't think of another word to use but unique because that's just what it was! And so wonderfully written so! I have a new favorite series and author! I'd rewind time over and over just to read the book again...but even though I don't get to time travel...I will re-read! So this book gets a 4-star rate!! :D
  Ugh! Sorry guys! Too much needed to be said about the book above! And time escaped me so I had no choice but to do a double review. Anyways! 

 Holy mother of pearl!!! This book was SO flipping good! You have all heard about second book syndrome right? This problem!! This book had it ALLLL!! And woah! Major shock when I heard it was from Kaleb's POV! But oh..I am SO not complaining there! I love Kaleb! He is gah!!! Indescribable! And I really really wanted him and Emerson! :( Theyre relationship like I said..flowed! They were cute and flirty and they would pick on each other and they understood each other! Sure! They didn't make electrical appliances explode (which is cute between Michael and Emerson) but they had sparks!

 The relationship in the end I accepted and really came to love but only at the end. It gained my approval because it did become really cute and uhm a hella sexy!!! ;D

 I loved the more information we get about the time-gene, the Houglass, etc.! Very enlightening haha But wow! This book was crazy!! Seriously It had soo many twists and turns!! I was cringing, about to cry, laughing my butt off!....Kaleb+a full POV from him= the funniest banter ever! God I love this boy!!! I also love how we got to see more of Lily and the secrets she holds! She became a strong character and I really came to like her! :) She is tough in so many ways and is also quite the comedian! 
 Now back to the crazy...Chronos, Teague, Jack, Poe!! Oh goodness Poe!! I think I really could have come to like you.... *sniffle sniffle* Sure you did what you did but...there were reasons. I don't think you meant them...Oh well we will see what happens I guess! But again..moving many doors were opened in this book and then some were shoved closed...right on your face! Rude!!! ;b But the biggest doors are wide open....well...maybe not. They are cracked an waiting to be opened so they can release all their secrets...but that's what the final book is for. DUH!!

 Please hurry up Infinityglass!! I need you! Like an actual need!!! Is there anyway I can time travel nto the future, read the final book, then come back!? No?? Phewy!!! >:b *sighs* So much waits in Infinityglass! This book was about all the crazy and all the time-continuum screw ups! Thanks to Jack everything is all wack and the only way to fix it all is by finding the Infinityglass! Grrrrr!!!!

 Ok. I'm gonna end this rant by saying you really need to read this series! It is truly remarkable! The Hourlgass Series will blow your mind and leave you thinking  about all that has happened long after you've read it! Again. this one word.....UNIQUE! It truly is and I'm a wee bit obsessed! Oh! Before I go....what's the chances of getting the third book from Michael's POV? Lily's?? Kaleb again!!!!!? :D Idk...I'm just super excited!! This book gets.....

4.5 Stars!! (Saving 5of 5 for book three!! Heehehe!!!!!)

lol Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a great Day!!


  1. Haha, very cute review! I've been keeping my eyes on this book, though haven't been fortunate enough to get a copy. Thanks for sharing your opinions! It sounds really great, and such a lovely book trailer too... *o*

    Vivian @ Vivaciously, Vivian

    1. Lol thanks! Awe darn! You really need too! Haha of course! My job! ;) It is! Right!?

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. Hehe, I obviously loved this book too. :) I haven't read too many books where time-travel is done really well, but this series is absolutely amazing. Everything about the time-travel is so unique and kind of genius. Like, there is no way I would have ever been smart enough to come up with some of this stuff! Hahaa and I agree with you about Poe--I think I could have come to like him...

    1. Right!? Not many can pull it off! Indeed it is. Hahaha oh dear me either! Maybe come up with an idea like it but never into words that people would understand. AWWWE! I know!!! :( I hope something changes to where we WILL get to like him??? I hope so...too sad too was pretty cute ;) Haha
      Thanks for stopping by!
