Fans of Myra McEntire’s Hourglass will swoon when they return to Emerson’s world in the highly-anticipated sequel, Timepiece. This latest installment, told from Kaleb’s lovelorn perspective, offers fans new insight into their favorite characters and a daring new challenge for the Hourglass team.

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.

Everything I loved about Hourglass is back, but the stakes are higher than ever in Timepiece. Life and love are put on the line as Kaleb and his friends try to find Jack and figure out what’s really going on. McEntire once again intrigues with a well-layered mystery and sharply plotted science fiction. She weaves together a tapestry of thoroughly engaging situations, and leaves readers hanging onto her every word.

The intensity only increases with every word, right up to the very last page that sets the stage for a third book (which is officially going to be published next year!) that fans will be clamoring to get their hands on as soon as possible. I’ll be among them – because that ending, Myra? What a doozy!

Timepiece also provides fans new insight into their beloved characters. While Kaleb, especially, takes center stage as the narrator, he’s not the only character who shines. Fans also learn plenty more about Lily, as well as Michael, Emerson and the rest of their Hourglass companions. Even the enemy takes on new colors in this finely crafted sequel.

And now, here’s an exclusive excerpt from Timepiece as part of the official blog tour:

I slid out of my seat and walked round to open Lily’s door. She managed to tear her eyes away from the scenery. “What is this? Chivalry?”
“No. You have the hot Tamales.” I held out my hand. “I need a hit.”
She shoved the box into my stomach and the connection made a loud crushing noise. “Hot Tamales. Atomic Fireballs. Sizzling Cinnamon Jelly Belleys. Red Hots. I’m surprised you have any taste buds left. Or teeth.”
“Do I make the obvious hot-stuff joke here, or refrain?”
