Infinityglass by Myra McEntire
"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 have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time travelers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order.
With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does.
But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn't an object. It's a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last?"- summary from Amazon
I absolutely love this series and was so excited to get an early look (at the time- I read it in July though the review is just going up now) of the final book. I've been eagerly awaiting it since finishing Timepiece and it's just so good.
My only problem with going into this and Timepiece is that so much happens in each book and each one has a different narrator that it was a little difficult starting the book. Things would be mentioned and I'd be so confused; McEntire does do some background and especially with the addition of a new character, past events are brought up to bring her up to speed, but sometimes I was a little bit lost.
Anyway, I loved the dual perspective and McEntire employs it very well. I really enjoyed getting into the mindsets of Dune and Hallie and reading about their lives and backstories. There's some interesting reveals and wonderfully written action scenes, but there's also a sizzling romance (a bit too insta-love though) and great chemistry between the two. Lots of humor and witty banter as well which I always enjoy.
Overall, a fantastic conclusion to the series. If you've not read this trilogy yet, get on it! I cannot wait to read what McEntire writes next!
