i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.
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, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he 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.
Thank you Disney Hyperion for the ARC of Passenger for review. This in no way affected my opinion.
Nicholas was such a inspirational character. Nicholas skin color has prevented his family from treating him with the decency he deserves and craves. The time period he lives in the color of your skin defined your station in life. Nicholas soon encounters Etta a girl from a period in time where social prejudices have come so far and the possibilities in life are a beacon of light.
These two end up on a world wind adventure with lives at stake and the clock ticking down. Everything Etta loves and cares about depends on being successful but can you follow through with something if you know the consequences of your actions could be astronomical and affect the very universe you live in.
Passenger was a slow burn that ignited my heart by the last page and brought me to tears. This was a book you take your time with and enjoy the journey Alexandra takes you on. I am excited to continue this series and see where the journey will continue. This was my first book I have read by Alexandra and I am excited to pick up more by her.
