Wanting a new supernatural modern day read with a hint of time travel and history slathered with the romantic language of the italians ?
Review: The Hourglass Door - The Hourglass Door Trilogy Book #1 - Lisa Mangum - May 2010
When I first started reading this book , I was in two minds and thought , not another fallen angel/ vampire novel as thats not what I was in the mood for -though in saying that , it's not that I don't enjoy reading them but sometimes you just have to be in the mood. The Hourglass Door turned out to be an amazing read and I definitely was hooked to finish it to the very last page and it was also one of those novels that even in the last few chapters , you didn't actually know how the novel was going to turn out and then there were bits and pieces , that the author could have played on and turned it a whole different direction. The Hourglass Door features the life of Abigail Beatrice Edmund aka Abby or as some of her friends call her ABE - Due to her initials. Abby is sick of her life as it has always been planned out for her and she wants it to change , starting with her birthday party as they have been doing the same thing since she was four. When Abby meets newcomer Italian Dante, it seems that the sparks fly between the two of them , however there is a much deeper depth and more than meets the eye to Dante as he reveals his true age to Abby, he's not a vampire , however is similar in sorts. Pushed into the future, can Abby help save Dante and her friends or will he be returned back to his time and Abby and Dante torn forever with time seperating them for eternity ?
