Keeper of the Hourglass: The Crimson Manifest
Apius is gone, but his legacy lives on with a brother's promise. Because of this promise, humanity is on the verge of extinction. Famine has swept across the globe as a mysterious pathogen is destroying the world's food supply. Even though agroterrorism is suspected, FBI Special Agent Peter Nichols knows there is much more to this.
Haunted by his long-forgotten past, he hunts for answers - answers hidden deep below an ancient Ceiba tree in the heart of Mexico. Here, protected by a deadly maze of tunnels, is a mythical temple. According to legend, this temple serves as a gateway to the afterlife. It is here where Peter must travel in order to stop the eradication, and Apius's brother, Ezekial.
But how does one stop the dead?

Readers of all ages will be challenged and enlightened by the author's sensitive approach to confronting lies, death, and sorrow.
This is a truly beautiful book that plays with the themes of life, death and time in a clever and imaginative way and also challenges the concept that paths of pre defined. An excellent book that I would highly recommend to any fantasy lover not just the recommended YA group.
