The Golden Spiral by Lisa Mangum

Genre: YA, sci-fi/fantasy
Published: May 2010
Source: Publisher--Shadow Mountain
Review: 3/5

Brief Summary: The story continues right where Hourglass leaves off.  I'll leave it at that to avoid spoilers.
My Thoughts:  My reaction to the second installment of The Hourglass Door series is much like the first. It has an interesting premise, likable characters, plenty of romance (a little too much sometimes), and a thickening plot.  I'm not the intended audience so the teenage romance gets pretty sappy at times.  My 12 year-old daughter loves these books and has read them all at least 3 times.
Recommendations: Great for those looking for a clean romance with fantasy elements set in a modern world.
Ratings: 2.2.1  There's plenty of kissing and affection, some violence, and mild (if any) profanity.

Thanks for reading!

The 1st and 3rd were the best in my opinion the 2nd is a little slow but still worth my time. :)
