REVIEW: Hourglass

Hourglass (Hourglass, #1)Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Pages: 397-US Hardback
Publisher: Egmont USA
Released: June 14, 2011
My Rating: 4.5/5
Book Summary: One hour to rewrite the past . . . 

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

My Thoughts:
BRAVO! Myra McEntire you have come out with something incredibly special here. Seriously, could this plot be any more intriguing and any more brilliant? I didn't think so. Addicting to say the least and blows your mind with every chapter. 

Emerson has recently dealt with the loss of her mum and dad and her biggest task in life? Just trying to figure out how to function. Between mental hospitals and boarding school Em still can't seem to get her life back on track.. that is until the handsome and oh so seductive Michael comes into the equation. DUN DUN DUNNNNN. 

That's when this story hits epic proportions of OMG moments and I CANT BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED. I had to start using my toes to count the amount of times i gasped out loud(during lecture thank you very much.) Oh, yes and did i mention there is TIME TRAVEL...?! holy s!@#.  I'll keep this short and sweet. Don't want to spill too many beans. 

Hourglass is a beautifully told story that weaves together the perfect amount of science, mystery and forbidden love.  I can't wait for installment number 2.
