Book Blog- Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Okay, I'm cheating a little here.  This isn't middle grade.  But I've been waiting for what seems like forever before I could tell you about this book.  Remember when we were book blogging boy POV books?  I had just read this one, but I had been sworn to secrecy by the publisher.  And yes, it is from a boy's point of view, but not just any boy.  Nope.  My favorite character from HOURGLASS, Kaleb Ballard, gets his own book! 

I loved HOURGLASS, and I especially loved emphathetic bad boy Kaleb. In TIMEPIECE, Myra McEntire takes what we know about all of the characters and builds on it.  Kaleb is so wonderfully flawed.  He is a dog when it comes to girls.  He drinks to escape his problems.  And he sees way too many similarities between himself and the primary villain.  But he also cares deeply about his family, longs for his father's approval and will do anything to protect those he loves. There are layers to this boy, and it is so much fun uncovering them as Kaleb comes to terms with his faults, and eventually learns to trust himself.

But this book is more than Kaleb's journey of self discovery.  There's a quest to find stolen information, a new, mysterious organization with the ability to change time permanently, and a mindbending series of twists, turns and time flips that will leave you breathless.  And did I mention that there is a swoony romance? 

If you like HOURGLASS you will love TIMEPIECE.  Get thee to a preorder, it comes out on June 12.

Here's the summary from Amazon:

A threat from the past could destroy the future.
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 his father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?

In the wake of Landers's return, the Hourglass organization is given an ultimatum by a mysterious man. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered--with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most. Now Kaleb,
, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their extraordinary powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? Even if they succeed, just finding him 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.


Oooooo I am so with you there T!! Boy POV and it's Kaleb? Move over peanut butter cups, there's a new treat in town! Love Myra, LOVED Hourglass and have Timepiece on pre-order. Come on June!

Well,mine has been on pre order since forever, but I had no idea it was from Kaleb's point of view. I knew there was more of Kaleb in it. I saw Myra McEntire on a tour last year and she said there would be, but of course didn't spill the beans! I was still trying to get some answers out of her on Hourglass! After talking to her I understood a lot more. She told me to remember first and foremost Michael knows a lot more than he lets on and he's protecting Emerson. It made things a lot clearer. By far, this is the most complicated of time travel novels I've read, but she does it very precisely. That's the science nerd in her she says. Now I cannot wait for June! Right around the corner!


I'm totally fascinated by Myra's world, and all that is going on there. Let me just say, there's a lot that happens in this book! I highly recommend picking this book up! It's definitely a perfect read for a lazy afternoon by the pool, floating on the river or hanging out inside with AC running.
