Thursday Review: Timepiece by Myra McEntire

The Blurb: A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking…

Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples – cracks in time. Are his powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before he can find out, Jonathan landers, the man who tried to murder is father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?

In the wake of Landers’ return, the Hourglass organization is given an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he’s stolen on the people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered – with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.

Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough…

My review:
I actually enjoyed this book more than the first (and I enjoyed the first). Kaleb was a narrator I could relate to easier than Emerson and I really enjoyed his character arc and his relationship with Lily. I was very surprised to find he was the narrator because as much as I love the cover, nothing warned me Emerson was not the narrator until line one. Instead of a summary, my book had reviews on the back, which is oh so not helpful in determining what the book is about. But it was a welcome change.

I enjoyed the faster pace and the way the rules of time were changing. I think the ripple effect of book one was well handled. I can’t get much into the book without spoiling book one, but I really, really enjoyed this book. Check it out.
