But almost immediately, things start to change, and Abby’s worst fears are realized when Zo begins targeting her past specifically.As Abby’s world fractures around her, she must face a terrible truth: either Dante didn’t make it through the door, or he is lost forever.

Her relationships with Jason, Natalie, and even her family are threatened to the breaking point—and beyond. Zo’s power is greater than Abby ever imagined, but as she struggles to free Dante, she receives help from an unexpected—and unlikely—ally.

My Review:
This is the second book in Lisa Magnum's amazing Hourglass Door trilogy and I have to say I absolutely loved it. Even better than the first one.
While it wasn't as concentrated on Abby and Dante's romance and more stopping Zo and the his interference with the River of Time, it still had moments of sweet tender romance between Abby and Dante.
Magnum has an amazing way with words and description that just draw you in and capture from the first sentence. You feel everything the characters feel, see everything they see, smell everything they smell. It truly is amazing. I found myself completely wrapped up in their world, their struggles and trials, their love for one another, their sadness and anguish and their hate.
I can't wait to read the next and final installment in this trilogy. I will admit, I am going to be sad to see the end of such a great unique story,
