''This artfully constructed sequel to The Girl from Everywhere does not disappoint, with even more romance and adventure than in the first installment....[A] thrilling, layered maritime fantasy...Recommend both titles to fans of Alexandra Brackens 'Passenger' books and Rick Riordans mythology-inspired fiction.'' --(School Library Journal (starred review))
''[A] genre-busting series...Nix's narrative voice reveals a complicated protagonist who moves between trenchant pragmatism and poetic flights with fluidity. ...this ingeniously plotted time twister deepens the narrative, sharpens characterization, and raises the stakes, leaving readers...wanting more.'' --(Kirkus Reviews)
''Time traveling Nix Song, 16, is back, and fans of The Girl from Everywhere will be delighted. ...well worth adding to collections that have the first title.'' --(Booklist)
Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father's ship. And now it's finally time for her to take the helm. Her future lies bright before her - until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves.
Desperate to change her fate, Nix sails her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems. Not even her relationship with Kash: best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire.
Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. At the centre of this adventure are extraordinary, complicated, and multicultural characters who leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. This sequel - and conclusion - to The Girl from Everywhere includes five black-and-white maps of historical and mythical locations. Fans of Alwyn Hamilton, Sarah J. Maas, and Outlander will be swept away.
