The Forgotten Locket

By Lisa Mangum

When Abby stepped through the hourglass door, leaving her beloved Dante blind and bleeding on the other side, it was in full faith that she could find a way to repair the damage to the river of time and restore him- as well as her family. It was a desperate chance that seemed worth taking.
But Zo had other plans.
Now Abby is trapped in a full-fledged battle for her own mind and life and heart. Even worse, Zo’s evil intent reaches beyond simple revenge against her and Dante. The whole world is in danger of collapsing unless Abby can summon her courage and undertake a journey that will lead her beyond the origins of the hourglass door.

So here's the conclusion of The Hourglass Door series. This series kept me interested enough to finish, and I did end up liking this book more than I thought I would. It's not really down my lane though, as the book is mostly a love story. If you are looking for a romantic book that doesn't go into bedroom scenes, this is a great choice. As soon as I forcefully put the skeptical realist into the closet, and just let myself go with it, I decided the book was good. Abby and Dante are oh so in love 'forever and always' and have to face insurmountable odds to fix the time stream. There are lots of twists and we find out a few answers to questions left dangling in the first two books. The series is interesting and the time travel is pretty cool. I wish there would've been more Italian language and poetry actually show up instead of her just talking about it. I think if I had to rate the series I'd give it a 2.9 out of 5. (It's an almost 3).
