    4 1/2 "Adventurous" StarsInto the Hourglass is the second book in The Evermore series and it was absolutely wonderful. I think that sometimes I enjoy the sequels in a fantasy series more because the majority of the "world building" has already taken place in the first book. I don't know if that is why I enjoyed this one more, but I definitely fell into the storyline very easily and it kept my attention the entire time.Everley is continuing to cha...

    ****4.5 Evermore Stars****It was a relief to travel back to another realm of the 7 with Everly, Killian and the rest of the adventurers. I fell into this series to the point where nothing else matters except what is going to happen to Evie and what adventure Father Time is going to send her on next.

    More deception, more discoveries, intriguing and beguiling characters, a strong book two in this engaging series.This is a well written second book in an emotionally charged trilogy. The world building continues in a creative, meticulous manner as does the story. The cast increases, the action is volatile, explosive and charged, the discoveries and deceptions endless. Smartly paced, a satisfying read, onto book three asap. Well done Emily R King,...

    This is the sequel to Before the Broken Star and sees Everley chasing the sword that was stolen by Prince Killian. Everley is determined to fulfil her promise to Father Time but to do so means she needs to convince those around her that it’s possible to travel to a world under the seas. As with the previous story it seems that Killian is always one step in front and poor Everley and her friends do seem to be forever playing catch up. I very muc...

    I received an eARC in exchange for a honest review.Another amazing adventure in the Evermore Chronicles that will keep you guessing until the last page!What I loved :1. The prologue explains that the sword is really a broken star and Everley thinks she is a broken girl because of her clock heart. Everley’s character development is truly beautiful as she realizes that just because bad things have happened to her—she’s not broken. Her potenti...
  • Alicia (Alicia Reads It)
    3 STARSAfter reading the second book in King’s new series, I have come to understand her writing style a bit more. I enjoyed the first book, but I had stated that it started off slow for me. This second book was no exception to that. It started off SO SLOW moving for me. In fact, it didn't really pick up for me until halfway through. That being said, I still enjoyed it. A few things I really loved in this book...I still really enjoy the charact...
  • Guylou (Two Dogs and a Book)
    This book has it all: Mermaids, Elves, Giants, Fairies and many more. This is the second book in The Evermore Chronicles and it is as exciting as the first one. Everley Donovan must cross worlds to find the Sword of Avelyn before Prince Killian uses it to destroy another world. She is however facing another challenge. Her clock heart is ticking its last ticks and she must return to her uncle before it beats its last tick.This series is fantastic....

    *Spoilers if you’ve not read the first book*In this sequel, Everley Donovan plunges into a strange new world to hunt a wicked prince who cheated time. Should she fail, the seven worlds will come to an end, as could time itself. In the Land Under the Wave, Everley’s tragic past resurfaces unsolved questions. She must take back her sword before her time runs out…I rated the first book in this series 3 stars... and rated this one 4 stars. I th...
  • Amy
    My blog: A Magical World of Words Source: Netgalley. I voluntarily read & reviewed this copy. All thoughts are my own.I love King’s writing. I enjoyed it in the first book of this series, and I still do. The only disappointing factor is the dialogue: it’s on-the-nose and dry, pointing out what the story needs to propel it forward, but not delivering entertainment, subtext, or character. I think it’s a pity.Otherwise, though, King’s prose ...
  • Bradley (AudioShelf)
    Ahhh! I really love Emily R. King’s mind. She has the most creative ideas for world-building. I was so excited to read this follow-up, because I LOVED LOVED LOVED Before the Broken Star. I felt like this sequel had so much going on. The adventure and action started IMMEDIATELY, giving me no time to process the start of events. You will not be bored with this book, as there is something always going on. Going back to world building, I do feel li...
  • Iza
    This one picks up right where book one ends, so don't read it without having read Before the Broken Star because you won't understand much - and you will miss out on some pretty awesome things. So without spoiling Into the Hourglass I'll say this: it has The Little Mermaid feels to it, along with some Peter Pan - which I kind of got toward the end of book one. Are you humming Under the Sea yet? Jokes aside, it really is another adventure; one aga...

    Everley is on a quest into the otherworlds. Their task … to find the sword of Avelyn that was stolen by Prince Killian. Yes, the same Prince Killian who killed her entire family and left her for dead. If they don’t find the sword in time … the seven worlds will collapse. Like all quests, the path before them is not safe and with her heart clock beginning to fail, Everley wonders if she will even survive this experience. Will Everley be able...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 StarsI loved this sequel! I read it one sitting. I just couldn't put it down once I started.If you read my review of book one, you will know that I wasn't toopleased with how book one ended, but rest assured, book two isperfect. It was a wild ride, but I enjoyed every bit of it. The slow-burn romance, the adventures, the magic, the characters,it was all good. I devoured it like chocolate.Everly's transformation in this book was...
  • Becca Mee
    With every page, this series gets more and more thrilling. Emily King sure knows how to twist your hearts with heart-pounding action and mind-blowing plot twists. I think my favorite part of Hourglass was the clear character development of the MC, Everley Donovan, as well as the relationship between her and Jamison evolves. Throughout her mission to retrieve the sword of Avenel and to stop her nemesis, Prince Killian Markham, Everley learns that ...
  • Nikki
    I received this book from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. I really liked Into the Hourglass - the land under the sea was a fun one to venture to and removed some of the characters who were lagging a bit in the first book. I did feel that in places things slot in too easily (one problem at a time etc) but honestly it’s good fun to read so it’s hard to begrudge that too much. I really liked Everley coming a bit mo...

    Actual 4.5/5 stars.
  • Princess
    I received this book from Netgalley and Skyscape in exchange for my honest review. I thought this was a solid book 2. I really hope Everley and Callahan can make it work in this next book. The magical aspects are pretty cool and I love how everyone is coming together. I am hoping to see Markham defeated
  • Laura
    Into the Hourglass follows Everley’s quest to stop Prince Killian and obtain the Sword of Avelyn, even if that means travelling to the mysterious Land Under the Wave. She was greeted by a ship graveyard (and yes it’s as eerie as it sounds!), met some siren singing merrows and discovered a sea hag’s grotto filled to the brim with yup you guessed it, house cats. This book was quirky, hilarious and the perfect sequel to Emily R. King’s Everm...

    BOOK REVIEW Firstly.... how awesome is this cover? Absolutely beautiful!••••••••••••••••••••This is book two in the Evermore Chronicles series by Emily R King. I immediately loved book one and book two was every bit as engaging.King has a real talent for description, her characters are so well thought out and portrayed that they are as vivid as any photograph. Landscapes are bright and dark in equal measure...
  • Heidi Hanley
    I really enjoy this series. It's a good story with good characters and very imaginative worlds that the main character travels between. I listened to it on the audio version and if I have on criticism it is that although the narrator is good, she does tend to make Everly sound in a constant state of hysterics. Likely she is trying to keep the drama high, but there's drama and then there's melodrama. Not an issue to keep you from listening to this...
  • Kelly
    2 StarsThis book was just barely passable for me. I slogged my way through it and the ending was pretty good but the 1st 90% was not good. It was just too much information and too hard to keep up with. I didn't really care for Evie at all. She wasn't very likeable. This book was so not good that, and this has happened only once or twice, I'm not sure I will read the last book in the series. My first thought when I was through was "finally!" and t...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Skyscape for the ARC in exchange for an honest review. **********4/5 Stars**********Into the Hourglass is the second installment of The Evermore Chronicles. Once again, we are thrust into the story of Everly Donovan, the tick tock heroine, or as she is known in this magical realm, The Time Bearer. From start to finish, this is a fast-paced, sit on the edge of your seat, action-packed tale. Everly and her friends (yes, s...

    *I received an ARC copy of this book from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review*Man, I enjoyed this book so much. The only thing I hate is the fact that I'll have to wait until December for the last book. Second books in a series always seem to fall flat for me and do not have as much adventure as the first book. Emily doesn't have this problem with her second books. Into the Hourglass had just as much if not more adventur...

    ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for honest review. Into the Hourglass is the sequel to Before the Broken Star , part fairy tale, part pirate adventure / redemption quest. It was a fun read, and I enjoyed it.This book has a great cast of characters. Jamison is the actual best, he's sweet and honorable and a great counterpoint to all of the madness going on around him. Evie is sweet and resilient and insecure. She refuses...

She’s out to get revenge and to retrieve the sword of Avelyn. This time she will journey to different lands. She discovers more secrets. Everly is in denial with her feelings for her husband.
