Teaser Tuesday: Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!  

Timepiece by Myra McEntire.

Timepiece - EgmontUSA

The first rule of Hourglass is that you don’t talk about Hourglass. Like Fight Club, but without the merciless beatings.
-- Chapter 3

“Em said that the only emotions you take from people are the painful ones.” She looked at the book on her bedside table.Grimm’s fairy tales. “I’m guessing there are consequences when you do. Magic always has a price.”
-- Chapter 30

I suppose I have already broken the rule mentioned in the first quote. In my defence, I’m not a member of Hourglass and actually have no time-related ability whatsoever. If I did, I would certainly spend less time travelling from place A to place B. Or something to that effect. Providing that it was such an ability. Anyway. I really liked Hourglass and Emerson and Michael and I was a little worried about the change in perspective for this second book ... and I’m rarely this happy to be shown that my worries have been entirely in vain. Kaleb is a great narrator and I enjoyed being able to peek into his head. I think I can understand his actions in Hourglass better now that I know him better. Also: Southern Drawl!

What are y’all reading this weekend?
