Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples--cracks in time. Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before Kaleb can find out, Jonathan Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?
 
In the wake of Landers's return, the Hourglass organization is offered an ultimatum by a mysterious man. Either they find Landers and the research he has stolen on people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered--with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.
 
Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their extraordinary powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? Even if they succeed, just finding him may not be enough. . . .
 
The follow-up to Hourglass , Timepiece blends the paranormal, science-fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.

I liked it a lot. Not as much as Hourglass (a lot of that was Kaleb's perspective; he was a lot harder to relate to and I just enjoyed Emerson's voice better). But still totally worth a read! :)

Really enjoyed this as a summer read, light, fast-paced and comfortably sizzling romance told from a male perspective, which was refreshing. -- Though I have to wonder if a 'bad boy' like Kaleb would really be as sensitive and melancholic... but, then again, he is an empath!
Timepiece is hard to understand without having read the previous installment, "Hourglass", as the story involves some unique theories on time and time travel.
