Timepiece by Myra McEntire

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

Kaleb Ballard’s relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never before been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb’s powers expanding, or is something very wrong?

Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he’s stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devastating results.

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

The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts. From Goodreads.

I am so glad that this book was from Kaleb’s point of view. It made it different since he feels everyone’s emotions. I honestly felt bad for him at points in the book because he felt that his dad chose Michael over him. But I was really happy about the relationships that got closer throughout this book. Not just with Kaleb but with everyone else.

I don’t want to give away too much because this book doesn’t come out until June 12th but I was lucky to get it from Netgalley beforehand. In this story Kaleb and everyone is giving an ultimatum that shows everyone that Chronos is very serious about finding Jack. I won’t tell you what Chronos is yet because it is all explained in the book.

You get to know more about Emerson’s best friend, Lily. You get to see more of Nate, Dune and Ava. You get to see a whole other side to Ava actually and you learn that she isn’t as mean as she wanted you to believe.  Dune shows more of his ability and Nate has his moments of comedic relief.

There isn’t much time travelling in this book but that is okay because you get more than enough of the rips throughout the book. And sometimes they are very, very real.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
