Magickeepers by Erica Kirov
At age 13 Nick's grandfather informs him that he is part of an ancient family of magicians. Not illusionists who fool people into thinking they are seeing magic, but people who can actually perform magic. What's more, his family is at battle with the Shadowkeepers over a group of magical artifacts. Nick's mother died trying to keep the Eternal Hourglass away from the Shadowkeepers. The Eternal Hourglass gives the owner the ability to stop time for the rest of the world. For the evil Shadowkeepers this would give them the power to kill and steal without anyone even knowing that time had stopped. Now Nick is living with the family he never knew existed and learning how to read crystal balls and change a tiger into a girl. But he also has a secret key given to him by his grandfather that he knows must be part of a magical mystery.
