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?
My Thoughts:
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 unintentionally alternating Hallie's abilities.
Dune Ta'ala knew it was time to grow up sometime and this job opportunity is the chance he's been waiting for. He never thought being a bodyguard to ultimate power could even be possible and still shocked that the all powerful mythical object known as the Infinityglass is actually a person. 
But the ripples in time are quickly multiplying and taking over this world. Dune and Hallie could repair it, but  the question is, could they survive it?

The Infinityglass is the final installment in the Hourglass series and what an explosive ending we got!
Myra McEntire has such a fierce gift for storytelling. I love the voices she gives to each of her characters. It's always filled with good humor, witty dialog and amazing chemistry. Time travel and supernatural abilities are the perfect combination for a fascinating and intriguing concept. It was so much fun seeing how this latest mind-blowing situation would all play out. I've really grown to love the outstanding cast and this freshly unique world and I'm so sad to see it end.

Told in two alternative pov's, Dune and Hallie are a sharp and sassy pair that fans will fall in love with.
Hallie is such an awesome character and I'm glad that McEntire introduces her into this world. Hallie is quite the handful. She's a challenging character who's smart and demanding and knows what she wants and goes after it with a zest and zing. She likes to play with her toys when she's bored and all the teasing and flirting just comes natural, but when real emotions are behind it, Hallie is out of her element. I loved seeing the impact of how sincere emotions affected her. I also love her ability to transmutate. That little talent started to get a bit crazy throughout the story, it was impressively entertaining and completely unnerving at the same time,
Dune has the ability to control water, the tides and even the moon phases. It's not always easy to control and has been a haunting memory for Dune since he was young boy. I really just loved Dune in this book! He's the kind of guy who's clean cut, walks the straight line and always plays it safe, he's Mr.Dependable and morally correct. It was really great to see Hallie get under his skin, taking down each resolved layer and finding something they never thought could happen. I really loved the way these two brings out the best in each other. The banter was comical and the romance was a seductive little dance between sexual attraction and emotional need. They made my heart happy.
It was also really great to see Poe, Emerson, Michael and Kaleb again as well as some of the other characters from Hourglass. I loved what they brought into this installment. It wouldn't have felt complete without them.

All in all, I really had a great time with this book. It was action packed, pulse pounding with a steady stream of intrigue and excitement from the very first page till it's gripping conclusion. I'm looking forward to tackling McEntrie's next escape, what ever that may be. Till then, fans of the Hourglass series are going to love this final adventurous addition. What a brilliant way to end an amazing series. This is one world I'm truly going to miss!

  1. Another series that I'm so tempted to start..why are there so many series out there? Gah!!

    1. LOL I know what you mean. So many books, so little time:p Hope you enjoy this one though:)

  2. I am so glad you enjoyed this. I am in the middle of it and REALLY enjoying it. I LOVED Hourglass but Timepiece was a bit of a letdown (I still gave it 4 stars). However I LOVE Dune and Hallie, and like you said, I am glad McEntire introduced her to this world.

    fantastic review and thanks for the giveaway, I would LOVE the poster!
