Présentation de l'éditeur

One hour to rewrite the past . . .
 
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
 
Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.

Biographie de l'auteur

Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated. She’s chosen, instead, to channel her “mad word skills” into creating stories infused with her love of music. Hourglass is her first novel. You can visit her online at www.myramcentire.com.

Emerson n'est pas une adolescente comme les autres, elle se trouve cinglée, a même fait un séjour en hôpital psychiatrique, traversé une longue dépression, tout ça suite au décès de ses parents et au fait qu'elle seule voit des fantômes ! Elle en croise à tous les coins de rue, ne sait plus trop qui est réel et ne l'est pas, il lui arrive aussi de parler dans le vide, de se couvrir de ridicule, du coup elle préfère s'isoler et se tenir éloignée de son lycée où ses camarades ont vite fait de la cataloguer.

Désormais sous la tutelle de son frère, elle ne peut éviter les tentatives de celui-ci de vouloir guérir son mal-être. Son dernier recours se nomme Michael Weaver, consultant pour l'agence Hourglass. Non seulement ce garçon est sexy en diable mais il possède une capacité d'écoute réconfortante. Sitôt en sa présence, Emerson parle comme jamais et en vient à se confesser. Elle qui pensait être un cas à part se découvre des points communs avec ce garçon furieusement canon (l'auteur insiste, même la nana fait une fixation sur les lèvres pulpeuses et les muscles saillants du jeune homme, ahem !).

Bon, le truc qu'on ne dit pas, c'est que Michael a d'autres motivations en aidant Emerson - il a besoin d'elle, besoin de ses capacités à voyager dans le passé, ceci grâce à la combinaison de leurs dons, et dans le but de sauver l'agence.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 With witty banter and wonderful characters 18 mai 2012
Par Crossroad Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The cover of this book is so neat looking. It is unlike anything I have ever seen. I believe that the description gives a good idea of what the book is about. With maybe some things left out. But, that doesn't take away from the book but adds to it.

This book started out so well! With witty banter and wonderful characters.

Yet as it went on it just got boring. It lost my attention and didn't do anything to grab it back. It just kept dragging on and on.

I did finish the book and towards the end it started pulling me back in.

I was disappointed a little that the book just went on and on and on. I don't like books that drag. Authors/Editors could cut it down and take out some of the nonessential crap and make such a better book with fewer pages.

I did enjoy the ending of the book. I think it ended with a somewhat cliff hanger but not such a big one that you would be pulling your hair out until book 2 came out. So thats very good.

There are so many books out there about time travel. I LOVE that in this book it takes more than one person to do it. I have never liked that books like Tempest, and tv shows like the Time Travelers Wife. Where they can travel alone without help. It never set very right with me. (I don't know why- Maybe I was a traveler in another life)

This book again is about Time Travel but also toward the end it turns into a love trio. I think that could have been skipped all together. With the connection that Em and Michael have trying to add another person to that love is just plain stupid if you ask me. I understand why it was added. But it could have been ended before the next book. It added an extra element that it just didn't need.

Ok Characters! I LOVE EM! She is awesome! She will kick your ass if you mess with her or her family! I love that. You don't get a lot of female characters that know how to use what they have. With Em its martial arts and yes she kicks some ass.

Michael he is a great male lead. I do think that he was kinda of stupid towards the end of the book. But it all works out so thats fine. But again it kind of adds an extra twist that the book just didn't need.

So all in all I did like the book. I think that this is one of those books that could go either way.
So Ill give it two rating.
3 stars it could go either way and 4 stars it made me ripple with excitement

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting concept 11 mars 2013
Par Dani - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
3.5/5 stars

Story & World. Time travel is a concept that I find fascinating and that I’m drawn to time and again, though I find thinking on it too hard makes my brain hurt – alterations to the time line, paradoxes and the completely over-my-head theories. Though McEntire does a fairly good job of keeping the technical aspect of time travel simple, there were still aspects of this story that I had some trouble wrapping my head around.

There were also many elements of this story that felt pieced together from other things I’ve read or seen – just vibes that reminded me strongly of other stories. These things didn’t make it unenjoyable, one just hopes for a little more originality, I suppose.

Characters.
Emerson. McEntire’s character development, particularly in regard to Emerson, is fantastic. So many protagonists today have that snarky, sarcastic gene. A generous amount of sass is practically a requirement for any leading lady, yet while Emerson is all of these things she adds something far more uncommon – a dynamite sense of humor. Emerson doesn’t employ any kind of verbal filter, and as a result her sharp comebacks and quick quips are often extremely witty, pointed and hilarious. Another thing I really appreciate about her character is what a volatile balance of confidence, decisiveness, and toughness she is, while also being fragile, vulnerable, and uncertain.

The Boy Toys. While I found Michael tantalizingly intriguing at first, he became somewhat one-dimensional as the story progressed. Kaleb, on the other hand… Now HE is all kinds of long-term intriguing and appealingly broken.

“Baby, just say yes.” Ok… let’s talk about connection. The romance in Hourglass was a bit… strange? I’m a little over the “instant connection” thing, the “I can’t be with you for reasons you’re not allowed to know about” thing, and the love triangle-ish thing was a little… sudden? Weird? Something. I just can’t help but wonder, when your ability to choose is stripped from you by some kind of super-human, chemical reaction, is it really “like”… or “love”… or something in between? Barring all sci-fi weirdness, would there have been a different outcome? There are at least two more books. Perhaps this will be addressed later on?

Overall. Though Hourglass didn’t blow me away like I’d hoped, ultimately I’m still drawn to the whole time travel concept McEntire’s created and to Emerson, and I’m extremely curious as to where she’s is going to take the story next.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book! 6 avril 2013
Par Chelsea @ Starbucks & Books Obsession - Publié sur Amazon.com

Emerson Cole sees dead people. She doesn't know how or why but all she wants is to be normal. Then she meets Michael Weaver and he has sees things too. Her world is turned upside down as she learns that she isn't actually seeing ghosts and that she isn't alone in this world of special abilities.

I loved Emerson. She built this wall up around her and she uses sarcasm as a way to keep it in place. I loved her snarky attitude and the way she never let anyone tell her what to do. She always breaks the rules and beats to her own drum. Michael is your typical white knight who wants to help Emerson and needs her help too. He wants to keep her safe and protect her. He is sweet and charming and handsome.

At first, I didn't think I was going to like this book because I had a hard time getting into it in the beginning. However, when I got to chapter 5, my interest was peaked and I couldn't put it down after that. I just loved the way that Emerson responded to the information she learned about herself and how she rebelled against everyone when they tried to tell her what to do. I really started to like the book even more when they introduced Kaleb. I loved his brazen attitude and his rebellious personality. The interaction between him and Emerson was entertaining. Even though the book started off slowly, the intrigue and action progressed well and I was definitely surprised by some of the twists and I ended up really liking this book in the end and looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Southern Time Travel Goodness 24 août 2012
Par Jennifer L. Golub - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've had Hourglass sitting on my Kindle shelf since it was on sale for $1.59. I read the synopsis and for some reason I just couldn't get into it. It's not like I even cracked the book open and started reading - I just wasn't in the mood for it based on the synopsis. I finally did read it this month because one of my groups on Goodreads chose it as the Book of the Month for our group to read. I then procrastinated until close to the end of the month.

I don't know what my problem was! This book was really good. I started reading the first chapter and got sucked right in. I couldn't figure out what all the previous hemming and hawing was about. I really like books set in the South, and Hourglass is set in Tennessee. The chapter opens with Emerson coming home and sticking her hand through a Scarlet O'Hara style Southern belle. When I read this, I was thinking, "What is this all about?" I became more and more intrigued - especially when I found out that this wasn't a ghost story!

I like Emerson for the most part. She has had some horrible things happen in her life, and she seems to be trying to make the best of things. She is spunky. She kicks butt. I love that she is into martial arts, and it talks about how hard she worked to become a brown belt. I like when characters work to be skilled and aren't just magically able to suddenly kick butt. I find Emerson to be funny, strong and dedicated. The one thing that I don't like about her is that she is one of those females that is so headstrong that she goes against what everyone tells her - just to spite them. On the one hand, I see her point, that if it involves her life, she should know, so that she can make a well-educated decision. On the other hand, I hate it when smart, strong, female characters put themselves right in the line of fire for stupid reasons.

Enter the love interest, Michael. He sounds attractive, but he doesn't quite do it for me. It seems like he plays with Emerson's emotions a lot. He withholds information from her, telling her it's for her own good. I hate when people do that. He should have been honest with her. He was trying to gain her trust so he could essentially use her to accomplish a goal he desperately wanted to accomplish. So while I dislike female characters that ignore the "it's for your own good" statements and put themselves in danger, I dislike more the male characters that withhold information resulting in the female putting herself in that situation. It's kind of chauvinistic. Emerson had to pretty much fight for every piece of information she received throughout the book.

I also dislike that Michael would be all into Emerson one minute and then blowing her off and making her feel bad the next. Emerson was a little clingy about it at times - but this tends to happen when a guy is bi-polar about his feelings. I dislike the whole thing with Ava. Michael wasn't very firm with Ava when it came to her advances, and he let Ava make Emerson feel bad about herself and insecure. That being said, I have to respect Michael for his self-sacrificing actions later in the book.

Hourglass does have a sort of love triangle. Kaleb, Michael's close friend, is closer in age to Emerson. He has lost his parents like Emerson. He is more of a bad boy- acting out because he can't deal with his grief or his powers in a healthy way. I personally prefer bad-boy Kaleb over Michael. Kaleb is definitely trouble - but he does make Emerson question her feelings for Michael - especially when she discovers that her feelings may not be her own.

There is a whole slew of side characters that are well developed and interesting. I love Emerson's brother and his wife. Dru is very maternal and I love how she really makes an effort to make Emerson feel part of their family. I really like Emerson's best friend Lily, and I hope that she gets more attention in the next book. It doesn't seem like they get to spend a ton of time together in Hourglass and I'm fairly certain Lily has some amazing secrets of her own. The rest of the members of the Hourglass society are interesting too - except for Ava - she is really unlikable.

I loved the world-building. I like the descriptions of the buildings and the towns that Hourglass takes place in and the descriptions of Thomas and Dru's renovations of the old buildings, their home, and restaurant. I loved all the information on time travel and rips. The different things Emerson see's is so fascinating - my favorite being the three being the three piece jazz band.

Overall I gave Hourglass 4 stars, because it's definitely different. I liked the way it was written, though I've seen a few people complain about the lack of "he said" "she said" when people are talking. I think it was fresh, easy to read and fun. I can't wait to read Timepiece. I can't wait to find out what consequences Jack and Emerson's travels cause for the present time. I hope maybe Emerson sees the value of Kaleb and what a sort of schmuck Michael is. Go Team Kaleb!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Start to a Series 1 juin 2012
Par kindlemom1 (My Guilty Obsession) - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book, this story, these characters, where to begin? They were so much more than I expected. So much better. I know you have heard me say it before but I truly love it when that happens and it just makes it so much better to read a book that blow my expectations for it out of the water. It makes it hard to put down.

Emerson was a feisty character and I loved her sarcastic dry sense of humor. She was a fighter and a survivor. She didn't take no for an answer very easily and she definitely wasn't one to sit around and play the damsel in distress. She turned out to be a pretty fierce kick butt herione.

Michael, Kaleb, both wonderful leading male characters, in fact, I had a hard time picking which one I liked more. Truth be told, I still don't know.

Thomas, Dru and Lily were fabulous secondary characters too. I think Dru was my favorite. She gave Em so much love and support that I actually teared up a little at the conversatiosn and interactions they had at times.

I loved everywhere this book took me. It was never dull or very predictable and it actively kept me turning the pages and wanting more. I am so glad that I have the next book in the series already so I can jump right back into the story and see what happens next.
