Review: Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Timepiece (Hourglass #2)
Author: Myra McEntire
Publisher: Egmont USA

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...
I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with Timepiece. I really had high expectations for this book because I loved Kaleb in Hourglass and Timepiece was written from his POV. However, I felt that the book was lacking something that I couldn't quite place. Now, I think it was actually Kaleb's POV that took the luster for me.

I wasn't able to connect with Kaleb in Timepiece and I found that reading from his POV took away some of the charm that he showed in Hourglass. I liked him because he was edgy and kind of the bad boy. However, in this book I didn't feel any of that like I did with the first. His personality was lacking in this book. Lily was a lot more prevalent in Timepiece and I really liked her. She was a really strong character and she didn't put up with Kaleb's crap or let him make excuses. She tamed him a bit and I did like that she had that affect on him. 

I was still intrigued by the plot in this book and it continued to develop really well and added another dimension. However, it was a little scattered and all over the place and I found myself confused a few times. It felt like it jumped back and forth between a couple of different things and I couldn't quite keep up with where it was going. It definitely had some interesting developments and the cliffhanger ending killed me a little. Even though the second book lacked a little, I will definitely be picking up the third book when it comes out to see how it all ends.
Favorite Quote:

"Hayrides were the perfect place to make out with a girl and get grabby hands. Could always blame it on bumpy farm roads." ~Kaleb (Timepiece by Myra McEntire)
