When his only son Isis suffers the deadly sting of an arachnid wasp, Oz Noble ventures into the swamp, where Zelda--a witch and perhaps the only being who knows of a cure--dwells. Zelda predicts that Isis has one day to live, and she sends Oz across a land crawling with poisonous snakes, carnivorous trees and beasts that lurk in darkness, in search for the last hourglass tree, the only hope of saving Isis’s life.

Sticky Web
"Draws you into a sticky web. I highly recommend it."~Nora Weston, author of @hell

World Weaver
"David Lester Snell has done something unique in Hourglass: given us a story of a magical quest through a land of fantasy that mimics neither J.R.R. Tolkien nor J.K. Rowling. Hourglass is set in a fantastical world of unique creatures, plants, and races. You won’t find orcs, hobbits, or teenage warlocks in this adventure but you will find arachnid wasps, nail trees, creatures made of pure darkness (destroyed by light, of course), genetically engineered beasts, irradiated landscapes, and many other wonderful figures and locales. Is this the future? The past? An entirely different reality? It doesn’t matter--Snell has woven a world that, while not familiar, is instantly comfortable and enchanting in a classic fairy tale way. Not only are the set pieces of Hourglass imaginative, but the writing is quick and precise with a sense of emotion and adventure flowing easily through the words. There is never a dull moment as the story twists and turns its way to a surprising finale. David Lester Snell has proven himself an apt world-builder and storyteller with Hourglass--expect great things from him. I for one am hoping Snell will hand us a return ticket to this land in the near future."~Jacob Kier, Permuted Press
