The only way to rescue the future is to alter the past.
When Abby stepped through the hourglass door, leaving her beloved Dante blind and bleeding on the other side, it was in full faith that she could find a way to repair the damage to the river of time and restore him — as well as her family. It was a desperate chance that seemed worth taking.
But Zo had other plans.
Now Abby is trapped in a full-fledged battle for her own mind and life and heart. Even worse, Zo's evil intent reaches beyond simple revenge against her and Dante. The whole world is in danger of collapsing unless Abby can summon her courage and undertake a journey that will lead her beyond the origins of the hourglass door.
“Give yourself time to read them because once you begin, you won’t be able to stop!” — Holly Newton, Meridian Magazine
“Move over Edward; Dante is bound to eclipse you!” — Emily Watts, bestselling author
“In a time when copycats abound, Mangum has created a unique story with interesting characters and an intriguing plot. And because Hourglass centers on relationships, fantastical elements feel believable rather than, well, fantastical.” — Deseret News
This book did not disappoint in wrapping up the series! I read it along with my teen age son, who enjoyed it also. It was fun to discuss it as we went along. I recommend the entire series - it is a wonderful way to get lost in an adventure!
There isn't much more I can say about this book other than it is fantastic! I read the whole thing in one sitting; I just couldn't put it down. There were times when I was so frustrated at the characters that I thought I would throw the book across the room, but there were also times when I just wanted to hug the book I was just so happy. It is a testament to Lisa Mangum's writing abilities that the reader can become so engrossed in the novel. Lisa has done a fabulous job of character development and she ties up the loose ends seamlessly. I couldn't have asked for a better ending to a series.
I was a little disappointed in the last book of the series. It wasn't as strong as the first two, and the power struggle between Dante and Zo became tedious.
