The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series.

The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members -- many of them teenagers -have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can

Way to finish a series!

Mostly in trilogies we've noticed the order goes from Awesome to Awful, mostly last books disappoint us but not here. Nuh-uh.

In Hourglass series the case was completely opposite. Hourglass, the first one was an okay to good book with a very different concept but it just didn't do the trick, there was something missing. But a friend told me to continue the series and read the 2nd book, Timepiece, so I did. And it was bloody amazing. It was narrated by a different character

Please, let it be Michael the narrator. I missed more of him in Timepiece. If not let's go back to Em and have lots of Em and Michael moments :)

Hope it's either Lily or Kaleb that narrates this book. Hate Emerson and Michael (BLEH), but I like Kaleb and Lily (:

Meh, not awful but not great either. I was bored for the most part, the plot and worldbuilding was all over the place, and I didn't know what the hell was going on half the time.

-I was kind of annoyed that Infinityglass focused on two new POV's, I would have preferred to read about Emerson and Michael again — they were the most entertaining characters in the series (though that's not saying much).
I did end up quite liking the heroine (Hallie), she actually had some personality. Althoug
Dadurch das der zweite teil schon so lange zurückliegt, habe ich mich sehr schwer reingefunden und musste am Ende dann noch immer oft stark überlegen, was überhaupt nochmal passiert ist vorher. Das hat den Lesespaß echt gedämpft und ansonsten mochte ich auch dir Charaktere nicht, auf die in diesen Teil der Fokus lag :/

Review to come...

Old Update:

After Timepiece I am really expecting anything from this series. Who will narrate next? Let's take a look at the contestants. Maybe Ava? She is pretty fucked up right now, it would be interesting to see what is in her mind, but unless she has a pretty big role in the future book I find this not happening. Will Em come back? Will Kaleb continue? Or will Michael take the reins? Maybe the'll get a new cat and then the cat will take over narration, after all they can see

Infinityglass is a strong, satisfying ending to the Hourglass series. I'm pleased with how things turned out but I'm super sad to say goodbye to the eclectic cast of characters. I'm a definite fan of Myra McEntire and I can't wait to see what she does next.

Infinityglass branches away from both Hourglass and Timepiece in the setting. Infinityglass brings readers to New Orleans and it's a fabulous setting. I've wanted to go to New Orleans for quite some time and Infinityglass just made me even mor

When I read Timepiece last year, I was slightly disappointed because I loved Hourglass but Timepiece didn't really leave a big impression on me. In actuality, before I started Infinityglass, I tried to remember what happened in the previous two novels and came COMPLETELY blank for Timepiece while I remembered a ton of what happened in Hourglass. Even with that, I had to give Infinityglass a try because a) it is the last book in the series, and b) Timepiece was still good, just a bit of a letdown ...more
I was going to go ahead and finish the series, even though I only gave Timepiece two stars. After all, it's only a trilogy. Well, I made it to page 71 and couldn't do it anymore. It simply is not well written, in my opinion, particularly the characters. Dune is supposed to be a guy, a fact which I had to keep reminding myself of, because the female author cannot write from a guy's perspective--just, no. Second of all, the Hallie character is poorly written. She's a supposed genius, but a genius ...more

Hallie Girard is just your average teenager...except for the part where's practically a forced recluse because of her unnatural abilities, only leaving the house to perform not-so-legal jobs for her father's company, Chronos. Her partner in crime is usually Poe, and it's quite odd to see him doing something other than stalking or attacking mem

This novel was reviewed by my co-worker, Emily. The following is her review:

(from the book jacket): "From the moment the Hourglass group violated the rules of the space time continuum to rescue a murdered loved one, time has been in flux. People from other centuries slide into our time, intruding into our space, threatening our world.

Auf Band 3, den Abschlussband der Hourglass Reihe war ich sehr gespannt. Band 2 hat mir nicht so gut gefallen und ich habe auf einen guten Abschluss gehofft.

Vom Aussehen und der Gestaltung gibt es nichts zu Merkern. Das Cover und die Klappenbroschur sehen ansprechend aus. Besonders gut gefällt mir das Ziffernblatt im Hintergrund.Und bei jedem neuen Kapitel befinden sich wieder Schmetterlinge.

Man merkt schon nach wenigen Seiten, dass die Protagonistin Hallie eine sehr aufbrausende Person ist, die zugleich eine starke Persönlichkeit hat. Und als man Hallie besser kennenlernt, vor allem in der Zeit nachdem Dune dazukommt, merkt man aber auch schnell, dass sie sich nicht immer so stark fühlt, denn sie musste im Leben viele Verluste verarbeiten. So hat sie auch nie richtige Freunde gehabt und musste sich früh von ihrer Mutter, die sich nur für sich selbst interessiert, lossagen.

I really loved this book. Usually I don't enjoy the third in a series but this is an exception. Having a split narration threw me a little, as did one of those narrators being someone we'd never met before, but it seemed to work. The story was interesting, developing the heartbreaking truth of the relationship between Hallie and her mother, as well as developing the relationship between Hallie and Nate. I really missed the other characters so it really added to the story when they finally showed ...more

Infinityglass is the the third and final book in the Hourglass trilogy.

There will be spoilers from the first two books in the series.

In Hourglass Emerson was the narrator. In Timepiece Kaleb was the narrator. Now in Infinityglass we have two new narrators, Hallie and Dune. Hallie is Paul Girard's daughter. Dune is part of the Hourglass gang.

The idea to change the narrators in each book is interesting. The idea to use two narrators who were only minor characters in the other books is even more in

Ok, I liked how the series ended. Perfect ending. It was the other stuff that bugged. Once again, the characters say waaaaayy too much; They talk about their feelings a lot, which people just don't really do. Well, the people I know don't do that. McEntire, I want you to show me emotion, don't have the character say it out loud. It's cheesy. And weird. I wasn't a fan of the changing POV. I've seen it done well. This wasn't one of those times. And, again, the time-related abilities was a complete ...more

Dune has been obsessed with the Infinityglass ever since he was a child. He’s collected every scrap of data possible to help Hourglass find this mythical object that can theoretically fix the rip in the space time continuum. Now, it appears that the infinityglass is a person, not an object and Dune is off to New Orleans to help her understand how important she is. Hallie has never been normal.

Sometimes, books are more than just books.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the day I watched my first episode of Doctor Who* was also the same day that Hourglass arrived in my mailbox.

Though those two things are thematically consistent with each other, what is harder to explain is what those two things have come to mean to me.

I don’t want to be hyperbolic here, because there are things in life that are more important than a TV show and a book series, but on that day

Infinityglass sees the continuation of the battle between those who thirst for power and those who would thwart them, but this time from the dual first-person perspectives of Hourglass member Dune and newly-discovered infinityglass Hallie. Like Timepiece before it, Infinityglass proves to be a bit more complex both in terms of the space-time continuum and with regard to Hallie’s abilities with the rips. There are times when the explanations for how she’s able to close the rips are fleeting and t ...more

Infinityglass is the final book in the Hourglass series by Myra McEntire. Check out my review for Hourglass and Timepiece if you haven’t already done so!

Infinityglass picks up not long after Timepiece leaves off. The Hourglass crew is still on a mission to find the Infinityglass before its too late, and it’s literally a race against the clock. With the help of some awesome new characters, they may just find exactly what they are looking for.

As with the other two books in the series, Infinityglas

Infinityglass is the third and final book in the Hourglass trilogy. I absolutely adore this series. When I read Hourglass back in April 2012, I was going through a bit of a reading slump. I was so addicted to fanfiction at the time, that I was completely missing some amazing published books. Hourglass sucked me out of my slump, and blew me away. And in June 2012, when Timepiece came out, I just knew this series would go down as an all time favorite.

It is time for the Inifinityglass to be discovered before Jack and his evil minions can take her/him over and destroy the world.

Hallie is the daughter of the head of Chronus. She is also the infinityglass. Dune is the member of Hourglass that knows the most about Hallie's gift. He is going to New Orleans, and he controls the tides. Could this spell disaster?

Hallie and Dune both had problems, and yet, they are determined to not let those problems ruin their lives, but strength them. They are ver

Things get really intense this time around, so if you tend to read quickly, you may want to slow it down so you can really grasp all that is happening. I feel like the tag line from the show Big Brother “D

*My Thoughts*

Infinityglass wraps up the Hourglass trilogy with different characters at the helm. 17 year old Hallie Girard (Chronos), and Samoan Dune Ta'ala (Hourglass) team up when it is discovered by Lily Garcia that Hallie is the Infinityglass. It is Hallie's abilities that can actually heal the time continuum rips that have rapidly progressed thanks to the machinations of Teague and Jack Landers.

Hallie is an interesting character. She's the daughter of

From the first few moments ofInfinityglass,it's clear that this is going to be a different sort of story from the first two books in the series. For one thing, as with Timepiece, we have a new narrator -- but this time, there's two of them, and one of them is someone we've never met. And for another thing, it moves out of Ivy Springs, Tennessee, to the bustling streets of New Orleans, Louisiana.

The first voice we're treated to inInfinityglassis the titular character herself, Hallie. Hallie's dif

If you've been following the blog for a while, then you know how big this series is for me. You know how much I utterly adore this series. It's kind of seeped into my life, really. In the past couple of years since I began this trilogy, I've wanted to wallpaper my room with the covers. I've named my Kindle after the main character in the first book.
