The Forgotten Locket by Lisa Mangum

"The finale of the award-winning Hourglass Door trilogy!

"What is your name?" he asked, but not like he wanted to know. More like it was a test. 

"What kind of question is that?" I laughed. "It's . . ." I started. "My name is . . ." And then my mind went blank. Or rather, it went black, the darkness creeping in from the edges of my consciousness. Terror followed, slipping in behind the shadows. How could I not know my own name? 

The only way to rescue the future is to alter the past.

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 or 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."

I must say, this last book was the perfect ending to a series I will always treasure. Lisa Mangum lives in Utah, and I had the pleasure of meeting her at my school in September, as well as introducing her, having a nice chat with her, and having her sign my books. It was an experience I will never forget.

If you haven't read The Hourglass Door or The Golden Spiral, the first two books in this trilogy, I highly recommend that you do -- even if you're a guy. Yes, it is a romance, but the plot is so intriguing and original that even the male species will enjoy it. I recommend it to everyone, especially if you love to read. So go and pick up a copy at the nearest library or bookstore! You won't regret it.


Rating: 5/5 stars
