I looked at my notes and this was everywhere: 0_0.
I read Timepiece without even rereading Hourglass and I was baffled and confused because I couldn't really remember much about Hourglass. I really tried remembering to no avail so I told myself that I'd give Timepiece until 100 pages to provide some background and clear things out, if not I'll reread Hourglass.
But you know what? Timepiece was really compelling and addictive. I didn't even get the chance to browse through Hourglass. I went in blind and I think it is a rare feat that I will really like a book I have trouble keeping up with. When I reached the 100 mark, I was still in the dark but it just got better and better that I just kept reading.
From what little I can remember, Hourglass narrator was Emerson but this time in Timepiece it was Kaleb's POV. At first I struggle to place him because I cannot for the life of me remember him in the first book but I grew to really like him. He was not all what he seemed to be. He was a compassionate and loving person and when he gave himself the chance to be that, he really shined through.
Lily. Oh Lily. How much do I love thee. She was incredible. I really love seeing her in Kaleb's perspective. She just perfectly complemented Kaleb.
The atmosphere in Timepiece was incredible. I felt creeped out by all the rips. How suddenly they are everywhere and how they could suck you from the present to the past and future and left you stranded there. Jack was ominous as ever and we are introduced to new villains that's why I am definitely excited to see where the next installment would take us.
I could definitely say that Timepiece will have a very special place in my memory now and I will surely reread Hourglass and Timepiece again. This is a must-read, people!
