Okay, I'm kind of stuck with this review because its late, my eyes feel constricted and I have uni tomorrow. *le sigh* But I will try my best to write at least a good review for your pleasure.
I was pretty excited to start reading Hourglass even though I wasn't too enthusiastic about the first book.
The events in this 3rd installment were more whole and exciting to the extent that I couldn't stop reading. Though the series started out with a book that was very predictable; Gray's writing slowly improved and became more unpredictable. The tension between Bianca and Lucas completely took me by surprise and it kept me wondering whether or not they'll actually make it together (not that their relationship is failing or anything like that)
Even though I was completely rooting for Balthazar to be the main hottie. It didn't happen much. *disappointment* You can't have everything you want now can you? I really love Vic and Ranulf. Their characters just crack me up so much and I love how weird and laid back they both are. Especially Vic. Hes just so freaking cool! I heart you Vic!
I think the only character that annoyed me the most is Raquel. Shes just stupid sometimes. Just her overall pessimistic attitude makes me want to go on a murder spree. Lol.
Overall, I never thought a third book of the series would actually be unputdownable mostly its either just the first and then fades with each book or goes on throughout the series or never happens in a series. But I'm glad this was something different. Honestly, I rather found this book to be very unique in different ways. Though the writing seemed a bit rushed. Gray's work still is great. I can't wait to get my hands on Afterlife! I can not believe what a huge cliffhanger Claudia left behind! This book was unputdownable! 4/5 stars!! :D
