Waiting on Wednesday (42)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine so that (this is me paraphrasing) we can all FREAK OUT TOGETHER about some rocking upcoming books. Warning: extreme fangirling may occur.

Timepiece (Hourglass, #2)Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Add it: Goodreads
Publisher: Egmont
Format: Hardcover, 336 pages
Release Date: June 12, 2012

A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking...
Kaleb Ballard's relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong?
Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devastating results.
Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Jack. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough...
The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a non-stop thrill ride where every second counts.

Let us ignore the gorgeousness of the cover. (I thought it was worth a shot... *eyes jump back to it*) Seriously, how AWESOME is that??

Okay, so I loved Hourglass. Time travel is waaay up there on my list of things I adore reading and that aspect of it was really well done. Kaleb was such a fascinating character... I liked him even more than Michael despite thinking he's a better match for Emerson and so I am THRILLED that he'll have centre stage in the sequel.

Kaleb's POV! EEEEE! <3

What are you waiting on this wonderful Wednesday? :)

  4. I have yet to read the first book Hourglass even though I do own a copy of it. I was so excited for this series and I have put off reading if for some unknown reason. Since you and so many other people rave about book one I'm going to have to try to read it before Timepiece comes out.

    Hope you love this one just as much as Hourglass!

    Happy reading
