The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series. 

The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -¬have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. 

Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time trav¬elers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order. 

With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does. 

But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn't an object. It's a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last? 

From moment I picked up this novel, I knew that I was going to love it. I was right; I was blown away with this book, till the end. Even when I came to end, I wished that there was more. Out of all books is Hourglass, this turned out to be my favorite, usually I like first book the most. Just like the other novels, the cover is break taking, it makes the reader curious, even if you didn’t read the series before, the cover will get you pick up the book. The cover itself has suspense written all over it. Infinityglass, was bit different from others too because instead of being told from one point of view, it’s told from two: Hallie & Dune and the characters engage you in the story. It also took place in two different locations in beginning. 

Hallie & Dune: There was something about both them I loved. However Hallie was my favorite out of those two. I love her attitude most of all, and her dedication to everything. Most of all I loved the relationship between Hallie and Dune; it was unlike the other relationships between the Hourglass members. At first, I was sure that it wouldn’t happen between the two of them because of way that Hallie acted towards him. Of course I couldn’t blame, because she did assume he was just another bodyguard at first. As book progressed, I could see how both of them cared for each other, way that Dune tried to protect her from any harm. 

Infinityglass seemed to have the most action then all other books in the series. Not just that but it had a lot of twists that I didn’t see coming, keeping the novel even more interesting. For instance, I would never figured out that Infinityglass be a person, all that time I was positive that it was a thing, I was surprised as I was. Also I had no idea how Evil Hallie’s mother was till they met up, were fighting. 

This been one fun adventure, the series. One of my favorite time travel books. Series that will keep you on edge of your seat.
