Series: The Girl From Everywhere (#2)
‘Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother—and possibly erase Nix’s existence—and Nix’s future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father?Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems—not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices. Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. But at the center of this adventure are the extraordinary, multifaceted, and multicultural characters that leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. The sequel—and conclusion—to the indie darling The Girl from Everywhere will be devoured by fans of Rachel Hartman and Maggie Stiefvater.’
Why I’m waiting: Not too long ago, I posted this review of the first book in this series: The Girl From Everywhere. Since finishing that book, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about the characters; are Kashmir and Nix together? How is Blake handling life on the ship? Where are they going next?
When I read the synopsis of The Ship Beyond Time, I knew I needed this book ASAP. A mythical utopia? A person who teaches her how to manipulate time? Omg, that just sounds amazing. But the possibility of losing Kash? Not that exciting, or rather, the opposite of exciting. Please, Heidi, don’t let that happen.
But seriously, I can’t wait. And just look at that cover! It’s absolutely gorgeous.
