Goodreads description:
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?

My Thoughts...

Warning: there will probably be spoilers in this if you haven't read the first two books in the trilogy! The good news you can currently get both of them for an insanely good price on Amazon! (Hourglass and Timepiece)

In the third and final installment, Ms. McEntire managed to win my heart for yet two more characters and splendidly wrap up a great trilogy.

What I Liked:
First and foremost--Dune and Hallie.  I really loved them.  I know a lot of readers didn't want new narrators for this final novel but I absolutely loved how the story played out with these two and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.  Their personalities were perfect for the roles they had to play and I loved how their relationship developed. (As a sidenote, I actually had a much easier time getting into Dune and Hallie's dual narration than I did getting into Kaleb's when I read it directly after Emerson's).

The twists that went on in this story were perfect.  I felt like I couldn't quite always tell who was out to get what, especially with Teague and Poe.  It was the little nuances that kept me on my toes with this one.  As the rips became more prominent and dangerous, I found myself getting nervous for Hallie and Dune and Poe (and the rest of the gang) to figure out what Hallie's role was and what it really meant to be the Infinityglass.

...Less Liked Things:
Honestly, nothing prominent comes to mind!  Sure, I missed some of the other much loved characters, but I also realized that their stories were pretty much over and this was the right direction for the ending.

Overall...
This was a fantastic series ending! It wraps up everything nicely with enough twists to keep you guessing and turning the pages.  I loved both narrators and the book as a whole was probably either my first or second favorite in the trilogy. :)

I love this series. It has been so interesting. I look forward to seeing how it ends. The first book is still my favorite, but I can't wait to see what happens in the end.
