“I’ve been orphaned by my time. The timeline has changed. My future is gone.”
“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. “ - taken from Goodreads.com
In this stunning conclusion to Passenger, Etta and Nicholas find themselves separated by time with no clear way to get back to one another. Etta’s world is turned upside when she meets someone unknown from her past who causes her to see her life in a different light. She also finds help from someone she never expected. Nicholas and Sophia struggle to work together for their own purposes. When Nicholas makes a deal for information from a powerful person, the price he has to pay is catastrophic.
Can Etta and Nicholas find their way back to one another? Who from Etta’s past comes to help her? What price is Nicholas asked to pay? Will the Linden astrolab be found and can Cyrus Ironwood be stopped before the timeline is destroyed? What happens to all of our favorite travelers?
