Timepiece by Myra McEntire Book Review

Timepiece (Hourglass, #2)
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 is 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 Jack and the research he's 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...

I loved Hourglass, so I was excited to read a copy of Timepiece as soon as I finished it. Timepiece was an amazing sequel, and I loved Kaleb’s point of view. He was my favorite character in Hourglass, so it was great to read from his perspective in Timepiece. 

Emerson and Michael have just saved Kaleb’s dad from Timepiece and although they weren’t the main characters this time, they still play a pretty big role in the book. Kaleb is a great, strong character. He had to deal with so much pain, especially considering his ability to feel the emotions of others.  Lily, Em’s friend, also came into Timepiece. I remember thinking her and Kaleb would be perfect for each other in Hourglass, and they were such a strong couple in Timepiece. 

I thought their personalities just really complimented one another. They were a great team, especially with having to figure out the newest developments in Timepiece. I love how in this series, the books are all so fast paced. Kaleb was an amazing character, as well, to try and relieve the burden off others. There were so many things that were realized in terms of how they time traveled. I love the theme of time travel in young adult books, so it’s really not too weird I enjoyed it so much :)

Timepiece is a fantastic read and a great sequel to Hourglass. I’d give it 5 out of 5 flowers. It’s a must read series!


  1. I still haven't read Hourglass and this series keeps showing up to me. I'm really curious about it and the covers are great. I'm glad you enjoyed this story and I hope I'll get to read it soon. Great review :)

  2. I need to read this series ASAP! The characters do sound great, especially together. Great review, I'm very intrigued.

  3. Sounds like a great mix of characters and blend of personalities. I haven't read the first yet but I def want to.

  4. Ahhhhh another series I really need to read! I'm behind on so many great YA series. I need to quit my job and just read full time, wouldn't that be ideal? *nods* I really like that this book is from a different character's POV than book one was, I love getting inside another character's head, especially when it's one I've already met and am a fan of from a previous book. Can't wait to read this!

  5. I really have to start this series. I heard mixed reviews on Hourglass, but now I'm thinking I might actually like it (and side with the positive reviews). I'm glad the sequel lived up to the debut :)

    1. I hope you love both books, when you do get the chance to read them :)
