Mark This Book Monday: Infinityglass by Myra McEntire!!

And for the last Mark This Book Monday entry of the week, the final book of the Hourglass trilogy!

Infinityglass (Hourglass, #3)Infinityglass by Myra McEntire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fantastic ending to this great trilogy! I will try my best to keep the review as spoiler free as possible, but in all probability there will be spoilers for the previous two books.

Infinityglass starts with a look back at the past, and we do so with a new POV, Hallie, and who is Hallie, you might ask? Hallie is the daughter of Paul Girard, the main guy behind Chronos, who used to be business partner and so much more with Teagan. Hallie has been raised overly protected and sheltered by her dad, but probably quite unexpectedly she's bold, sarcastic and has a lot of spunk! She's always been rash and brave, and that paired with her time gene given ability makes her quite a character! But little she knows that she's more than she could even imagine.

The second POV is Dune, the official Hourglass expert in the Infinityglass, that goes to New Orleands to try and help solve the mystery of the Infinityglass and if possible heal the time continuum that is good and well messed up. He meets Hallie, and she's quite a handful to deal with, and Dune not only has to help keep her safe, but help find out the answers in the Infinityglass lore to see what it really means for a person and not an object to be the Infinityglass.

After reading the book it's quite clear that the story had to be told by Hallie and Dune, since they are the ones in the thick of it, and any other POVs would have been telling their story for them. Hallie and Dune get through a initial deception to working together, to falling in love, and they become each other's strenght. Lily and Kaleb, Em and Michael, they do come into the story, but they are there to complete their journey and to support Hallie and Dune on their, but this is the Infinityglass show, and so they're just supporting characters.

The time continuum continues to get more and more messed up (or should I say wibbly wobbly) and the past is threating to invade the present and take over, and the stakes get even higher when Teagan and Jack come into the scene, always with an ace under their sleeve.

With a fast moving pace but allowing time to develop the new characters while moving the story along, and plenty of geeky references (including quite a few Doctor Who ones) this book hooked me from the start, surprised me with a few twists I wasn't really expecting and managed to wrap things up quite neatly in the end, with a bit of shocker in the resolution!

All in all, 4 and a half stars for this book, and probably for the whole trilogy as well! Thank you Myra McEntire for this fantastic and fun ride!

  1. Doctor Who references? I really can't resist those. ;) I haven't read the second book in this series yet, but I quite liked the first one, so it's good to hear that the trilogy ends well. Great review! :)

    1. Thank you, Sam!

      I can't wait to hear what you think of Timepiece and Infinityglass!
