Description

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

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 liked this conclusion, but I also found it kinda meh. I did enjoy the characters and the different settings we got to see. The plot was fast paced and was fun :)

    The writing was good, I enjoyed the story, and found it easy to read and the descriptions were rich.

    Overall, I liked it, but I didn't love it.

    While you could get away with reading this book having not read the first one I do suggest starting with the prior book, Passenger. Establishing the storyline, all of the different worlds and the characters helps with this story. Although, I did enjoy this book, I did suffer from not having this prior relationship in the beginning. So, for the first third of the way I was just trying to find my way in acclimating myself to all of the characters and different time periods. Once, I found my footing, I was able to enjoy this story. Yet, I was more drawn to Nicholas and Sophia in the beginning and for quite a while. It seemed that this is where most of the action was happening. Plus, Li Min was intriguing. Etta was good. It just seemed like it took a little longer to get the story moving. In addition, at times Etta came off as young in the way she talked and acted. The last half of the story is where it all came together. I was intrigued by what I read and do want to check out more books by this author.

    Continuing where Passenger left off, Nicholas and Etta are now separated in both time and place. Because of the events in book one, the timeline was changed and Nicholas has to find the last common year in order to find Etta. Meanwhile, the astrolabe which has the power to create new passages between time periods and places is still missing, and both Nicholas and Etta are racing against time - and the Ironwoods, who want to use it to change history - to find it, determining who to trust along the way as new information about their family history comes into play.Because you have the two points of view, the reader knows more than either of the characters as they piece together others' motives and figure out what to do and where to go. Based on the fact that I'd read the first book over a year ago and had to get my bearings again, I'd say it's not impossible to read this independent from Passenger, though I wouldn't recommend it. They're definitely two halves of the same story, and the way Wayfarer wraps things up was exceptionally satisfying.

    Could have really done without that last chapter. Otherwise this book was okay. It seemed rushed in places, where as the first one was just the right pace. Overall, a good duology and I will definitely be reading more from this author.

    I liked the book but on this app it skipped a ton and didn’t even finish. Super aggravating
