Infinityglass Blog Tour! Review and Giveaway!

About INFINITYGLASS (Egmont USA, August 6, 2013, $17.99 HC)
 


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 trav­elers 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?

Book Review:
Infinityglass is the finally installment of the Hourglass trilogy.  The Hourglass organization has figured out that the Infinityglass isn't an object, it's a person.  They quickly figure out who the person is and send Duke to teach her how to harness her power.  Infinityglass is told from the dual perspectives of Duke and Hallie (the Infinityglass herself).  This was kind of fun because we got to see a lot more than just the Hourglass.  Hallie lives in a completely different world than the kids at the Hourglass.  She is sassy and a lot of fun.  She and Duke strike up a friendship than blossoms into something more.  I enjoyed their interactions and watching them flirt, tease and sass each other.  The story focuses a lot more on Duke and Hallie's relationship than it does on anything else.  Like the previous installments, I found the concept of The Hourglass to be very murky and a little confusing.  But overall, I found Infinityglass to be a solid final installment on par with the rest of the series.
