Passenger by Alexandra Bracken (Passenger #1) ★★★★☆

Published: 2016

Format: eBook

Pages: 486

Genre: Science Fiction, Historical Fiction

On what was supposed to be her big debut, violin prodigy Etta Spencer is thrust into an unfamiliar world traveling both miles and years from her home. Nick Carter is happy with his life at sea, until Etta arrives on his ship and he is brought back into the world of the Ironwoods.

Etta and Nick must journey across centuries and continents to track down the object the Ironwoods desire and keep it out of their clutches.

There was a lot of hype for this novel when it was released which always makes me nervous. But this definitely deserved it. I completely fell in love with the story and its characters. Etta was a great character to read about, but it was Nick’s swashbuckling style which really captured my attention.

I’m on a complete time travel kick right now (an recommendations are more than welcome!) and it was done really well in this story. I love the mythology of the time travelers, and there was a great mix of different time periods and locations used. The contrast of Nick’s traveling experience and Etta’s newbie attitude worked brilliantly.

I’ll definitely be picking up the conclusion to this duology!
