Review

Time—it disintegrates, collapses, shifts into other realities far more frightening than imagined in Alexandra Bracken’s Wayfarer. From San Francisco to Vatican City to imperial Russia, this action-packed conclusion to the Passenger series largely unfolds while Etta and Nicholas are on the run, this time separately and years apart.

“I’ve been orphaned by my time.
The timeline has changed.
My future is gone.”

In Passenger’s heart-pounding finale, we see Etta vanish into thin air. When she comes to, Etta finds herself in a time she doesn’t recognize, without the astrolabe, without hope and without her love. As fate would have it, however, she stumbles into the grip of the Thorn’s leader—her father, Henry Hemlock. Suddenly, her life feels like a lie all over again, especially as she uncovers shocking truths about her mother.

Meanwhile, Nicholas is desperate to find Etta and so he must partner with Sophia Ironwood to find her and the missing astrolabe. Their partnership is anything but easy with years of distrust weighing heavily between them.

“I’m coming… Stay alive. I’ll find you.”

Each of them embarks on a dangerous adventure through time, partnered with people they didn’t expect, encountering more surprises, more devastating truths and more treachery. Worse yet, an ancient evil relentlessly chases behind.

“They will stop at nothing to prevent you from taking possession of the astrolabe, should you find it. Your paths have crossed, unfortunately, and now there is now way to disentangle them.”

With their futures, along with that of millions of others, in jeopardy, both Etta and Nicholas race against time to find the astrolabe, and each other—but when their paths converge, their choices may be different enough to obliterate everything to which they’ve desperately clung.

Wayfarer is largely plot driven with intricate storytelling that helps create high-stakes tension in line with the catastrophic consequences at play. Romance readers may find themselves missing some of what they loved in the first novel, as Etta and Nicholas spend the majority of the novel on divergent paths. Nonetheless, detailed explorations across time and a constantly shifting storyline is sure to keep readers happily turning the pages towards the novel’s exciting conclusion.

About Wayfarer

Etta Spencer didn’t know she was a traveler until the day she emerged both miles and years from her home. Now, robbed of the powerful object that was her only hope of saving her mother, Etta finds herself stranded once more, cut off from Nicholas-the eighteenth century privateer she loves-and her natural time.

When Etta inadvertently stumbles into the heart of the Thorns, the renegade travelers who stole the astrolabe from her, she vows to finish what she started and destroy the astrolabe once and for all. Instead, she’s blindsided by a bombshell revelation from their leader, Henry Hemlock: he is her father. Suddenly questioning everything she’s been fighting for, Etta must choose a path, one that could transform her future.

Still devastated by Etta’s disappearance, Nicholas has enlisted the unlikely help of Sophia Ironwood and a cheeky mercenary-for-hire to track both her and the missing astrolabe down. But as the tremors of change to the timeline grow stronger and the stakes for recovering the astrolabe mount, they discover an ancient power far more frightening than the rival travelers currently locked in a battle for control. . . a power that threatens to eradicate the timeline altogether.

From colonial Nassau to New York City, San Francisco to Roman Carthage, imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, New York Times #1 best-selling author Alexandra Bracken charts a gorgeously detailed, thrilling course through time in this stunning conclusion to the Passenger series.

    I might read this since it’s a duo. I put it on the back burner because I thought it was a longer series. Good review!
