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 :)
3,5 Sterne, weil mir vor allem das Ende sehr gut gefallen hat. Ich mochte die Perspektivwechsel, das hat dem ganzen etwas besonderes gegeben. Allerdings fand ich alles viel zu schnell abgehandelt.

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

Probably the best book of the saga. The characters are really witty and the plot more interesting than ever. I would give it three and a half stars if it was possible.
4.5 stars

There was a subtle, slight hitch in her breathing.
"Your breath just caught." I said it without thinking.
"Maybe it did. So what?" She angled her chin up at me.
"Nothing. It's's only fair. You make mine catch all the time."

After a pawnshop job gone wrong, Poe Sharpe transported himself and Hallie Girard just a few blocks away from the bad guys, but he actually set off a genetic stressor to trigger the effect of the Infinityglass gene.Thus changing the space time continuum and uni

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

This is book 3 in the ‘Hourglass’ series, and kicks off where book 3 left off.

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

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

Oh My God! I am love this series! I love the characters and the writing of it. It took me a few days to finish but I finished it. I could read the whole series all over again. It is so good. I just wish there was more in the series. I just want cry because there are no more books in the series. I am so sad!

Full Review: a really hard review to write.

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. Hourglass is my go to recommendation for people

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

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

3.5 stars.. This was a quick and entertaining read. I took one star off solely for the fact that the main characters from the first book played a very, very small role in this one (boo!) Petty thing to do but IT'S A SERIES NOT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT BOOK OKAY. I fell in love with those characters, and the main characters in this book were decent but just didn't add up. Took half a star away because I felt the dialogue was slightly choppy, and the book was overall just a little too cheesy for my ...more

I finally finally read Myra McEntire's Infinityglass! It's been eons since I last read the first two books of this trilogy and there was no recaps of those to be read since the series is rather old. This final book is already over four years old. Diving into a series finale like this practically blind was a challenge. Luckily, I do remember that the first two books all dealt with different characters, same group of people and whatnot so it worked a little in my favor except that I pretty much kn ...more

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.

From the first few moments of Infinityglass, 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 in Infinityglass is the titular character herself, Hallie. Hallie's

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.

*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.

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

This one is also pretty good! I did have a few issues, but it was mostly enjoyable. This one has duo POVs between Dune and Hallie, and Hallie's voice is so different from the previous books. I really enjoyed her voice most of the time, and the duo POVs are unique to this book in the series, and work pretty well. Dune and Hallie are super flirty, and the build-up and tension bet

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

Oh goodness, the love affair I’ve been having with the Hourglass books just got more intense. This is one of the few series enders that I was really happy with. So lets talk about it.

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

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 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
