In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles, but years from home. And she's inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she's never heard of. Until now. Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods-a powerful family in the Colonies-and the servitude he's known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can't escape and the family that won't let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, his passenger, can find. In order to protect her, Nick must ensure she brings it back to them-whether she wants to or not. Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods' grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home forever.… (mer)

This was a very enjoyable read. Adventurous, fast-paced and well written. I loved the journey through different eras, places and times. But there were some things, that lessen my experience from the book. Firstly, what struck me at the beginning, was the similarity in the starting point to Mortal instruments – a mother who had a secret life, who did not tell her daughter who she truly, kidnaped, leaving her daughter to chase through impossible dangers to save her. But the similarity didn't feel wrong, the story becomes very original as the plot develops. Also, I struggled with Etta's character from time to time, since she feels very naive in some ways. And through the entire book, I could not make myself believe the romance going on between Etta and Nicholas. I get the idea of love at first sight, but falling completely mad over somebody after a week or so, wanting him sooo badly in very long passages, while on the run, in great danger, and with Etta's mom life at stake... I just couldn't relate to this aspect of the book. Which is why it's not a four-star book for me. But otherwise, I love the book and I'm very excited for the continuation. ( )

Woah, that was really interesting! I didn't really get that into it until about halfway through or so, but the wait was worth it. The settings and plot were really what drew me in. Now that I'm used to the flow of it, I'm really excited to dive into Wayfarer. Overall, I'd recommend this one, but make sure you understand that it works it way on you slowly.

The romance felt a little insta-love-y to me, but it wasn't super cheesy, so I'm okay with it. I feel like at least by the end of the book, they had a genuine bond and understanding of each other. They didn't meaninglessly fight about protecting each other or withholding knowledge from each other and were actually quite mature about those issues when they appeared.

I was a bit frustrated with Etta and her foolish bravery at the beginning, but she did improve over the course of the novel and I have gained respect for her. I still think she could've done more to prevent the situation from unfolding the way it did in the end, though. Hasan is probably my favorite character, followed by Nicholas. I dislike Sophia, but I sympathize with her because of her upbringing. ( )

“My fear for you outweighs my fear of him,” he said simply. “And I told you, didn’t I? If you left, I’d follow you.”

But should you try to leave on your own, know that I will go to the ends of the earth to bring you back.”



The fact that the music writing in the first few chapters was perfect and has all the right research as well as the quote worthy parts in this book was solid 4 stars for me. I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!


And can i just say that i am in love with Carter and Etta's relationship? I really don't know why but i just am.


The only actual problem for me in this book was that the plot needed. . . something to it. I can't pinpoint it but it was just missing something. And although this is more because of my taste, but i found too slow paced for my usual taste. THOUGH, it was very very okay because the scenes were written in such a way that it didn't feel as if the author was prolonging it. It was just really that long.


I am keeping this short because I need the next book NOW.

One word to describe this book? Atmospheric.
Passenger is a lovely story. It's highly descriptive and while I normally have a problem with that, I didn't mind it at all. I actually enjoyed the descriptions of the surroundings/clothing from all of the different places and times the characters travel to. Speaking of Etta and Nicholas..I adored the romance between these two. It's a bit of a slow burn but it develops quite nicely.
Fantastic world building and character development with a storyline that doesn't fail to pull you in. Oh and did I mention time travel? There's a lot of that too! Not to mention, the cover is absolutely gorgeous.
Now, if only we didn't have to wait until 2017 for Wayfarer. ( )
