From modern-day New York City to nineteenth-century Hawaii to places of myth and legend, sixteen-year-old Nix has swept across the globe and through centuries aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. But when he gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. Rae Carson meets Outlander in this epic debut, which School Library Journal's starred review called “a must-have fantasy adventure.”
Nix’s life began in Honolulu in 1868. But since then she has traveled to mythic Scandinavia, a land from the tales of One Thousand and One Nights, modern-day New York City, and many more places both real and imagined. If there is a map, Nix’s father can sail his ship, The Temptation, there. But now that he’s uncovered the one map he’s always sought—1868 Honolulu, the year before Nix’s mother died in childbirth—Nix’s life, her entire existence, is at stake. No one knows what will happen if her father changes the past. It could erase Nix’s future, her dreams, her adventures . . . her connection with the charming Persian thief, Kash, who’s been part of their crew for two years. Heidi Heilig blends fantasy, history, and a modern sensibility with witty, fast-paced dialogue, breathless adventure, and enchanting romance. Publishers Weekly said, “Heilig’s writing is richly immersive, and a mature exploration of complicated love, both familial and romantic, underlies the story. A riveting and far-reaching fantasy that crosses seamlessly across the centuries.” Includes maps.
