Publisher's Summary

In the second book in The Evermore Chronicles by Emily R. King, Everley Donovan plunges into the roiling waves of a strange new world to hunt a wicked prince who cheated time.

Everley Donovan’s mission: retrieve the hallowed sword of Avelyn stolen by the wicked Prince Killian, who slayed her family and left her for dead. Should she fail, the seven worlds will come to an end, as could time itself. And no one treasures time more than Everley, whose lifesaving clock heart cannot beat forever. She has set sail with a rogue crew for the otherworlds, where the key to dethroning the prince lies deep within the Land Under the Wave.

But passage through these unknown seas - where horrors lurk and pirates rove - proves a treacherous gamble. The Land Under the Wave was not made for humans, particularly one with a fragile clock heart. Here, Everley’s tragic past resurfaces unsolved questions. Here, too, the prince has hidden secrets more precious than pearls, secrets that could fracture the future forevermore. Everley must take back her sword and break free from this watery world before her time runs out…or so will everyone else’s.

her voice changes volume too much, it is distracti

The constant sudden changes in volume a d pitch of voice is distracting. It is difficult to focus on the storyline, when I have to constantly turn up and down my speaker volume!

Play at .75 speed

I have the series of the 100th queen and other books who feature this narrator, but this has got to be one of the worst performances I have listened too in a long time. I have the first book to the series and had to play at .75 speed also. My mistake was not listening to the first book again. The main character the tick tock girl is so angry, shrill and speaks with such meanness to all that she interacts with that the performance is ruined. Over 80% of both books is like being screamed at for hours on end by some mad woman. She screams at her uncle, brother, friends, husband, people she just meets even the god who gave her the clock heart,, it makes me even question if I am in madness myself for listening to it.
I feel sorry for the narrator since her voice must of suffered with all the hours of yelling that she had to read through.
Maybe reading the book and not listening to it would be a better option.

Good story, not great narrator

This is the second book in the series and it continues to entertain and keep me interested in what comes next. The author does a great job with her descriptions of the different places the protagonists go in their tale. My only complaint is the narrator on the audiobook. I usually read books, but I was going on a long road trip and I figured that I would listen while I drive. Bad idea, the entire time I was tempted to shut it off so I didn't have to listen to her overly dramatic reading. Honestly it was too much. I wish it was toned down a lot, it took away from the climax of the story because most of the story was being yelled. I recomend the story in the book format, audiobook listeners listen at your own risk.

Stealing Time!

This book speaks to clarifying the legends of the seven worlds. Apparently because humans have such short lifetimes and even shorter memories, the legends have been rewritten without the humans noticing. As Everly progresses through this story she learns more and more about the true creation story. She also hears a new version of the legend of Princess Amadara.
Everly also learns quite a bit about her own past. She even learns just how powerful the heart of an Everwood tree truly is considering she has one in place of her original heart.
This book is amazing. As a serial, the ending points towards the next book, but it also wraps up a few storylines that run parallel to the maIn tale.
I recommend this book.

Shaping up to be a good series

It took awhile to get into this series. I will never understand why authors keep making their main character so unlikable. Evie has a great back story and a lot of her personality is understandable to a degree, and possibly it's a vehicle for other things in the story but I don't think it's needed.
There's a great love story, exciting adventure, and a really decent plot, but I had to get past her being such a b*tch to get to it.
One thing I found really weird is that it's fantasy with fantasy characters and settings but there is a a scene in one setting (I won't spoil it for you) but it almost ruined the whole story. I don't know why but I found it more absurd than the thought of 7 worlds that work together but seperate.
Still its good enough to move on to the 3rd book.
Lauren Ezzo does a great job telling the story with tons of emotion and good voices

Amazing Adventure!

Into The Hourglass by Emily R. King is the second installment in the Evermore Chronicles.
I just loved reading this story and was swept away on a magical journey!! The world and characters are so richly written. This story picks up where the 1st one left off and explains more detail and expands the world more. Such a magical world with a little bit of everything including mermaids, magic swords, giants, elves and so much more. I really enjoyed this journey and am looking forward to next one!!

Good story

Overall it is a good follow-up to Book 1. The narration was just okay - a bit too over dramatized for my liking.

What a story! Unexpected again...

Often the sequel does not rise to the original book. This was spectacular. Vivid mental pictures, and character that were real. Fleshed out to the point you can feel their whoas and their triumph. The narrator is so emotional that my perception is that The is everything portrayed the author wanted to me to feel, see and experience. Open your mind and soar!! You won’t regret it.
