Review: Hourglass by:Myra McEntire

HourglassHourglass by Myra McEntire

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A new book about Time Travel with a fresh new voice, this is the first book written by Ms. McEntire and has that new feel. There are times that the novel feels rushed and has holes within almost as big as the wormholes and theories that she tries to present within it's pages - but the story is good, the villians are somewhat unexpected. I do wish that the story was stronger but I can hope that Ms. McEntire has just given the reader a taste of what she can do.

Emerson has lost her parents, is in the custody of her brother and his wife, and has only begun to tap into the powers that she has. Having been seeing the dead for a while, her brother, Thomas hires Michael from the Hourglass (an Institute for special people and the studies within) to help Em with this. The sparks between the two are undeniable neither is the tie that binds them from the past, present, and future. When Em is needed to help travel to save an important part Hourglass and the Team, she risks everything to do it.
