Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken
It will be released on January 3, 2017 by Disney-Hyperion. It is the 2nd book in duology.
I know a lot of people have issues with Passenger, but to be honest, I loved that book despite the issues. I love how Alexandra came upon how one travel between the time periods. My favorite part of the book is the characters. It is diverse and the characters themselves is not weak. They are flawed but strong.
I will post a review on Passenger a week before the 3rd. The cover is beautiful. I hope Wayfarer has something on the naked cover like Passenger does.
Do not read the synopsis if you do not want to be spoiled of what has happened in Passenger. I did not read it because I want to just jump into Wayfarer not knowing what it said.
All Etta Spencer wanted was to make her violin debut when she was thrust into a treacherous world where the struggle for power could alter history. After losing the one thing that would have allowed her to protect the Timeline, and the one person worth fighting for, Etta awakens alone in an unknown place and time, exposed to the threat of the two groups who would rather see her dead than succeed. When help arrives, it comes from the last person Etta ever expected—Julian Ironwood, the Grand Master’s heir who has long been presumed dead, and whose dangerous alliance with a man from Etta’s past could put them both at risk.
Meanwhile, Nicholas and Sophia are racing through time in order to locate Etta and the missing astrolabe with Ironwood travelers hot on their trail. They cross paths with a mercenary-for-hire, a cheeky girl named Li Min who quickly develops a flirtation with Sophia. But as the three of them attempt to evade their pursuers, Nicholas soon realizes that one of his companions may have ulterior motives.
As Etta and Nicholas fight to make their way back to one another, from Imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, time is rapidly shifting and changing into something unrecognizable… and might just run out on both of them.
