The Forgotten Locket (Hourglass Door Trilogy) e-book

by Lisa Mangum


Ships from and sold by A Poets Dream.

The Forgotten Locket book. The Forgotten Locket is an incredible, beautiful ending to the Hourglass Door Trilogy. The only way to rescue the future is to alter the past. With the ending of The Golden Spiral, I was more than anxious to read the sequel, to see what would happen, and finally have everything come together. Lisa Mangum created an intricate, timeless tale with her story of Dante and Abby. It flows with the breath of time, circling into my mind, taking root, becoming one with me.

Deseret Book Co (2011). The future is uncertain. The battle to control the past has begun. The final book in the riveting Hourglass Door trilogy begins when Abby steps through the black door, and she doesn't dare look back. Though it means leaving Dante wounded, bleeding, and possibly blind she knows it is the only way to save her family and stop Zo from manipulating the river of time and throwing the future into chaos. In the end, Abby must face a final confrontation that will take her to the very origins of the hourglass door.

FORMAT: The Forgotten Locket is the third book in the Hourglass Door Trilogy. Lisa Mangum absolutely knows how to take a story, develop it right before your eyes and wrap it up with no loose ends. It is a YA novel that contains a mixture of time traveling, romance, magic and action. Events within The Forgotten Locket pick up right where The Golden Spiral left off and it is imperative to read the previous novels before starting this final book. Everything that I loved about the previous two books, mainly the characterizations and plot line, continued throughout The Forgotten Locket. Abby, Dante, Zo and Valerie continued to become fleshed out characters that are multi-dimensional.

So, this is a good series, and a good conclusion. ** SLIGHT SPOILERS**
Dante has been a weak-sauce male character throughout the series, but this book.......oh my heck. He get's captured every other chapter i SWEAR. And if he is NOT captured, he IS mortally wounded. The plot keeps repeating itself over and over, Dante is a weak male, and Abby has to come save him. over. and over. and over. and over. It was cute the first time, but it gets annoying/old after the 3rd time. I feel that the author had really nothing else to write about in her story, and so she kept writing the same "rescue Dante" bit, and was just adding fluff so she could fill pages. I honestly kept closing the book to see if i was more than halfway through yet because it got SO OLD. And Zo is also captured, and breaks free a million times, and it's irritating. Yes, i enjoy a good, strong, female lead character, but this... it just made me hate Dante. He only got one good punch in (literally, one punch), and isn't good for anything in this book except for being bait for Abby. SUPER sappy, and repetitive. Speaking of repetitive, is there ANY OTHER way to express affection other than "he cupped my face in his hands"?!? Make your characters do something else. something sexy, and different. Make me WANT to root for them. Also, I was disappointed because usually the characters develop in a conclusion, but Dante just got weaker. And the writing was a bit confusing, when they had a solution for a problem they had, the answer "just clicked" for the character, and the reader is left to wonder.. what...?? what clicked? i don't get it. On a good note, It DOES wrap everything up and tie up all the loose ends, but muscling your way through all the fluff is tough.

Overall Review: "This is where the story changes," Valerie whispered to me from behind her hands. "If Dante says yes, the story goes one way. If he says no..."

How often do we really think about the things we do and the decisions we make and how they will affect our future? The whole focus of The Forgotten Locket are those itsy bitsy decisions that change the entire course of a lifetime: One small word, one seemingly insignificant look, changing your mind about where to go to lunch... It all matters and it can change everything!

I enjoyed following through with Abby and Dante. There were definitely a lot of interesting twists and turns in this final installment! My favorite character has to be Valerie (turned Oracle), as she just adds almost a comic relief to most of the story. Abby and Dante's relationship doesn't change, even as they are fighting for their families and friends through time. I enjoyed the unfolding story and loved the back and forth through time and meeting of so many new characters.

I had very high expectations for this book (I really loved the first two!), but I felt like it fell a little short. The writing is very different this time: there were a lot of big problems arising individually, then 20 pages later we hit a climax and resolution, and then we start all over again with a new big problem, climax, and resolution. This goes through memory loss, insanity, love triangles, blindness, broken hearts, etc. At times, it almost felt like a lot of mini stories on the lives and travels of Abby and Dante, but it worked. I wondered if perhaps it was written this way on purpose--almost as a symbol of the river of time that was being diverted, polluted, frayed, and destroyed. Everything was spiraling out of control bit by bit, one piece at a time.

On the whole, The Forgotten Locket provides a satisfying, albeit predictable, ending to The Hourglass Door Trilogy. It makes you think twice about ever wanting to go back in time and change something... and one can only hope that time travel will never be achieved! Overall rating is 4 out of 5 stars.

Content Review:

PROFANITY: One moderate instance

VIOLENCE: Mild to Moderate throughout

SEXUAL CONTENT: A few mild instances

MATURE THEMES: Mild to Moderate

RECOMMENDED AGE GROUP: 16+

There is one instance of profanity where a character tells others where to go.

All the sexual content is mild and includes some kissing and mild tension (with phrases like "She leaned against him and her body was a perfect fit").

There is a great deal of violence and some of it became a bit more graphic, mostly to show the intensity of the feelings and the situations. There is more description of the branding with chains around the wrists, and a lot of reviewing past violence from the previous novels (stabbings, deaths, etc.). There is an evil and dangerous character who wreaks havoc wherever he goes and delights in it. He steals away family members, threatens everyone (and follows through), constantly desires revenge and destruction of those opposing him, and wishes to destroy all time. A character stabs another through the heart. A character attacks using fingernails to claw at another's face and draws blood (this happens multiple times). There is a moderate fight between two characters that include fist-fighting, punching in the face, and stepping on fingers repeatedly in order to break them (and there is description of the state of the broken fingers and the mutilated face many times after). Two characters break objects that are important to each other in order to incapacitate the other. A character melts (not unlike the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz) very slowly.

The mature themes are mostly mild, such as time travel, dealing with memory loss, overcoming odds, and realizing the importance of friends and family. Some of the moderate themes deal with the evil nature of one of the characters: the overwhelming desire for revenge, destruction and death.

The Forgotten Locket is recommended for ages 16+.

THE FORGOTTEN LOCKET (Hourglass Door #3), the much awaited final book of this unique trilogy proved for a strong finish. Picking up right where book two left off; Dante had been blinded (slashed through the eyes by Zo) and Abby has gone through the hourglass door alone, assuming the permanent consequences of time travel, binding herself to the bank. Making her first trip back in time in an attempt to stop Zo's from further destruction, save her family and.. Well, basically save everyone from Zo's God-complex and put the river of time back on course.

I really enjoyed this last installment of the Hourglass Door Trilogy, but it did rank slightly less than the prior two books for me. Although there are some exciting nail-biting moments of solid action scenes and fantastic character growth and development, I felt the pacing was a bit off here and there throughout, slowing the story down a bit more then I would have liked. But other than that, THE FORGOTTEN LOCKET is truly a great read and terrific end to a favorite series. Oh and Kudos to Mangum for the Epilogue, which was especially appreciated to truly give a sense of completion to this intricate story.
