The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourlgass 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?
If you've been around the last week or so, you probably know that I've fallen in love with Myra McEntire's Hourglass trilogy. Well the final book, Infinityglass, has completely solidified that love. It was exactly the kind of ending I wanted for this story, but it was also a whole lot more.
The Hourglass needs to find a way to stop Chronos and Landers. Until they're stopped, time is just going to keep getting more and more messed up. The way to repair all the damage is to use the Infinityglass. But first they need to find it. Until now, everyone thought it was an object, but thanks to Lily, the Hourglass now knows the Infinityglass is a person. And so Dune goes to New Orleans to protect and learn more about the Infinityglass. But once he meets Hallie, Dune realizes that his job might be more difficult than he thought it was going to be.
I've said this many times recently, but I am so beyond happy to have finally discovered Myra McEntire's Hourglass trilogy. With every book I read, my love for the story just kept growing more and more. Since Infinityglass was the conclusion to the story, I had pretty high expectations for the book and I wasn't disappointed. There was just so much that needed to be explained and resolved, I just wasn't sure how it was all going to happen. But it all played out perfectly and I was so happy with how it all turned out. I also really enjoyed seeing the story from both Hallie's and Dune's perspectives. It definitely kept things interesting since each had access to different information. And getting to know two more characters the way I got to know Hallie and Dune was pretty awesome.
Dune was always in the background in the first two books, but in Infinityglass he was front and center. Dune was amazing and I pretty much love him. Don't get me wrong, Kaled is still my favorite, but Dune was like a big teddy bear who was fiercely loyal and incredibly caring. It was just hard not to love him if you want to know the truth. And I loved the playful side Hallie brought out of him. Hallie took me a a little by surprise and I didn't expect to like her as much as I did. There was definitely more to her than met the eye, and because of that, she's kind of hard to put into words. But regardless of all that, Hallie more than deserved to have someone like Dune in her life. Really, they were perfect for each other.
Infinityglass was the perfect conclusion to Myra McEntire's Hourglass trilogy. It was exactly what I hoped it would be. And the epilogue? It totally put a smile on my face and made me laugh.
