Some things should not be stolen.
After what seems like a lifetime of following her father across the globe and through the centuries, Nix has finally taken the helm of their time-traveling ship. Her future—and the horizon—is bright.
Until she learns she is destined to lose the one she loves. To end up like her father: alone, heartbroken.
Unable to face losing Kashmir—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—Nix sails her crew to a mythical utopia to meet a man who promises he can teach her how to manipulate time, to change history. But no place is perfect, not even paradise. And everything is constantly changing on this utopian island, including reality itself.
If Nix can read the ever-shifting tides, perhaps she will finally harness her abilities. Perhaps she can control her destiny, too. Or perhaps her time will finally run out.
There are spoilers for book 1 in here so check out my review of the first book if you haven’t read it already!
What a book, I loved this even more then the first and I liked the first so much!
Nix is on the way to NY, her Dad is coming down from a drug addiction and not in the best shape, and she’s received a prediction that her Love and best friend Kash is going to die at sea which is a heck of a prediction seeing as they live on a ship.
While going out on shore leave in NY Nix and Kash are stopped by a girl who can’t remember much but knows she had a letter and a map to deliver to Nix.
Inside Nix finds a map to a Utopia, a mythical island, and also a promise of help. Can Nix change the future? Defeat fate? Will the world split off into paradoxes if she does? Will her family and friends disappear? How will the world remake itself if the past is tampered with…
“Nothing lasts forever. Not even sorrow.”
This book had the same amazing world as the first, I mean a mythological island anyone? Yes please. Surrounded by sea walls to stop it from becoming the next Atlantis and a fairy tale about the island disappearing is predicted to happen in only a few days and Nix is ready to help in any way she can.
Nixie loves adventure and I was right along side her. Mermaids, Monsters, A Pit, A Crazed king, a foretold disaster. Bring it on! I believe in my girl Nix and if I had the chance to go into a fictional world I wouldn’t object to being apart of this crew and calling her captain.
One of the things I was surprised I liked was the dual narration, having Kash’s POV was awesome. Kash is such a complex character, he’s charming and a smart ass, but knows what is right from wrong. He’s also having a life crisis about if he’s real or not.
This duology was all types of fun and my heart stopped more than once at the last 50 pages.
Recommend for anyone that loves well done time travel, SHIPS OF THE PIRATE KIND, Smart ass love interests, thieves, and mythical creatures.
Have you read this yet? What did you think of the final book?Or is this Duology on your TBR?
Thank you so so so much to Allen and Unwin for allowing me a free copy in exchange for a honest review!
