My experience with time travel and books is pretty small, in fact, the only one I had read before Myra McEntire's series was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. But, if every time travel book is as interesting as the Hourglass series, then count me in!

I was thrown at first because I did not realize that Timepiece was going to be written from Kaleb's perspective, and I was somewhat upset that I wouldn't get to see more of Michael and Emerson's romance (still a little upset about that), but I did get a sneak peak into a guy's head. Plus, I did get some romance with Kaleb.

The best part of this book is the twists and turns. There is also plenty of action as the Hourglass members rush to try and locate Jack. Thank goodness there was plenty of action and questions to keep me guessing because I might have lost interest with the lack of romance.

I really liked that Myra introduced a bit of mythology into the mix with the idea of Chronos. We are left with more questions than answers in this book, but I do think it was a good set-up for the next book.

Overall, it was nice to get a guy's point of view (especially a hottie with a side of brokeness--very sexy!), but I still found myself missing that girl connection. What can I say--I like to imagine myself as the protagonist! I felt like all that emotion and connection that was built up between the reader in Hourglass was just thrown aside because we really don't see much of her at all in this book.

Still, I devoured this book quickly and enjoyed seeing inside Kaleb's head.

I'm interested to know whose pov the next book will be in--hopefully we will get both, differing from chapter to chapter.(
