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)

It's hard to find a good time travel book but I think Alexandra Bracken nailed the genre. Despite some things that could have been done with a bit more time I'm talking about the insta-love romance this was a fast-paced story with a great plotline.
Also, not a big fan of the cliffhanger in the end but it's ok because I have the next book ready to go. ( )

Adventure, Romance, Pirates, Time travelers, yep this book has it all! It was such a good book and I can't wait to read the next in the series! ( )

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. ( )

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.
