Any lovers of Twilight out there? Pay close attention to this title…
THE. GOLDEN. SPIRAL.
Yep, that’s the one.
(Not that THE GOLDEN SPIRAL has any kind of male with vampirish tendencies. But, wow, if your daughters want to read about a dreamy guy, get them this is the book. This one is nice clean fun.)
Here is the information from the back cover:
“His eyes. His touch. His kiss. Now Dante’s gone, and Abby will do anything to get him back…
“The hourglass door has closed behind Dante, sending him back in time to hunt down Zo, Tony, and V. Abby knows that Dante, as a Master of Time, is the only one who can stop them from destroying time itself. She also knows that he will need her help. But almost immediately, things start to change, and Abby’s worst fears are realized when Zo begins targeting her past specifically.
“The bank is eroding. The barriers are thinning. And time is running out.”
THE GOLDEN SPIRAL is the second book in The Hourglass Door Trilogy. Not only is it imaginative, but I loved the author’s experimentation with the physics of time. Truly a delightful read. If you’re looking for a fun book to get for a long car trip this summer or to read while on the beach in Cancun (or any other kind of family vacation), this would be one you’d enjoy…and then wait eagerly for the final in the series due in 2011. :0)
P.S. Do know that the book gets intense at the end and without being a “spoiler”, there is a knife involved. If you do not like peril, you might skip quickly through that scene. You’ll know it when you get there. As I pondered it later, it made sense that it needed to happen. It was just a little sad. 😦
