WOW. This book drew me in immediately, right in the first few pages. Then it blew me away. The plot line in Hourglass is just amazing. Emerson has been seeing people from the past since her parents died, and her brother will do anything he can to help her. Cue Michael, a consultant who know he can help Emerson. When she learns what's really behind his motives, she's thrust into a drama where she feels compelled to save the life of a man who has already died.
I really don't want to give anything major away about this plot because I really do want to you experience it for yourself, but let's just say, there were twists and turns I didn't see coming... and I loved it! Particularly near the end of the novel I found myself saying out loud, "WHAT?!" at the end of a couple chapters. And the chemistry between Em and Michael was very compelling. Throw some Kaleb into that mix (who doesn't love a love triangle, no matter how minor) and you've come a great love-y side plot.
This book was so beautifully written. The language was modern but beautiful; the chapters were short, which made reading "just one more chapter" that much easier. This was such a real page-turner that when I finally had the time today to sit down and finish it, I whipped through it. Everything about Hourglass was great, even the cover. Look at that cover! Now turn it sideways. Whoa. Guys, this is a must read for 2011 and I'm so glad to have finally read it. I'm looking forward to the sequel in June, we had some unfinished business here after all and I'm hoping to see more of Kaleb. ;)
