“I read the first book like that the beginning of 7th grade. Finishing the rest of the series in about 3 weeks was something that I don't do often. My connection to these books isn't as great as others but I picture myself being in the situation that the characters are in. I take this series personal in some cases because certain parts of the book tell you that there is meaning to the things they say. The main character shows bravery and independence, she was my favorite and someone I would like to follow, in her footsteps.”Danielle L wrote this review Friday, September 2, 2011.

“I remember how in the second book I disliked Lucus, but in this book I think that he redeemed himself in a way when he took care of Bianca. Also, Balthazar got hurt! I knew that was going to happen! Then Bianca died! I was totally shocked when I read 'And then I died'. Then Lucus died. There were so many tragedies in this book. The next book should be interesting, the author can still keep up with the Romeo and Juliet thing since vampires and wraiths are enemy's (star-crossed lovers!!!!).”Kristy wrote this review Monday, June 13, 2011.

“This book is a direct example of why I tell people to give a book or a series a chance- to read it through even when they don’t particularly like it. So far I haven’t totally hated the books in this series but I haven’t really, really enjoyed them either. Hourglass was different. It only took me two days to finish it. It really was an action packed roller coaster ride. The moment I thought everything would be okay for Bianca and Lucas, things twisted for the worst again. It kept me on the edge of my seat and even made me laugh here and there.
I really enjoyed the plot this time. For me, the relationship between the wraiths and vampires was very original. I don’t usually enjoy drama/tragedy in the books I read but in this instance I think the book wouldn’t have been as dynamic without it. The relationship between Bianca and Lucas really came together and although I don’t approve of sexual situations in young adult novels, their love story touched me in a heartfelt way that I truly appreciate when reading. Also, I felt myself building relationships with the characters and wanting more and more of them. I extremely love Vic and Ranulf!!!
This time around, I can’t wait to get to the library tomorrow to check out the next installment. From this point, I definitely recommend the series.

Bueno,por lo menos este ha tenido mas accion que los anteriores y atrae mas la historia aunque algunas cosas eran predecibles!
Ya que Bianca me cae mal por lo menos ahora está muerta y Lucas,pues se convertirá en vampiro ya que no puede morir porque es uno de los "personajes principales".
Seguro que en el 4º libro "After life" la cosa seguira en como será la relación entre Bianca como una aparición y Lucas como vampiro.
