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

Why am I waiting.

I really, REALLY, can´t wait for this book!! I love the cover so much, I think it’s super original and that it leaves readers to think about the story.  The other day we talked about how we usually judge a book by its cover, and just by the look of this cover, well… we already know it’s going to be amazing. 
Alexandra Bracken has been one of my favorite writers since I read her  book The Darkest Minds, I loved this book so much and I’m so happy that she wrote a new story for us to read.
I can’t wait to meet the new characters, like Etta and Nicholas and to read about new adventures.
The book looks absolutely stunning and very interesting in my opinion, I really can’t wait to read about this new world.

Why am I waiting.

I have not read many books about time travel, yet this one has captured my interest almost immediately. First off, the author is a wonderful writer. I only read the first book in her series but I liked it a lot! I love that the main character does not know she can time travel until it’s too late and she is brought back in time having no idea what to do at all. On top of that, the enemies who took her are making her look for a hidden artifact or else she can’t go home. All this adventure mixed with a forbidden romance is my cup of tea.
