|Book 1, debut novel|
Now she is mixed up with an organization called the Hourglass. Their intentions are not exactly clear. And now, she is surrounded by other teens with special-ish abilities. So yay, she isn't the only one! Oh, and we can't forget the big bad-Jack. He has been a naughty man playing with timelines, messing things up, messing up people's minds.
So, Hourglass turned out to be about time travel. Or, as the book calls it, time-slip. Hm. Not what I was expected, but holy cow so awesome debut by Myra McEntire! The characters were likable and believable. Even though at times my brain had issues comprehending the science, I still got it. Be ready for leaps, bounds, and secret shock moments!
If you need one more reason to read the books, then try this one. Emerson is talking to Michael on the front porch.
"...I pushed up forcefully from my seat on the stairs, cracking my head on something hard before feeling the sensation of cold slime sliding down my back. I twisted around to see Dune holding a cooler full of mud and crawfish heads. The other half was all over me."

A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
It is the continuation, but this time the focus is Kaleb instead of Emerson. Kaleb is the bad boy from book one. Kaleb has a lot to lose in this installment. He is approached by another party who warns him if he and his friends do not stop Jack, a traveler who has been manipulating timelines, and who also stole time-gene research, there will be heavy consequences. Consequences resulting in a reset, including Emerson.
And because of Jack screwing up timelines, everyone at the Hourglass is seeing ghosts. And not just one or two, but entire towns, etc. This is not looking so good for our intrepid heroes. Will Kaleb and the others be able to stop Jack in time to save Emerson and really everyone else if you think about it?
I love, love, loved book two just as much if not more than the first. I loved Kaleb. For an example of just how awesome he is, ponder this here quote:
“I'm a bad ass. A bad ass who bakes when he's depressed.”
Hehe-full of win! So, go out now and read the books!
