After what seems like a lifetime of following her father across the globe and through the centuries, Nix has finally taken the helm of their time-traveling ship. Her future—and the horizon—is bright.
Until she learns she is destined to lose the one she loves. To end up like her father: alone, heartbroken.
Unable to face losing Kashmir—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—Nix sails her crew to a mythical utopia to meet a man who promises he can teach her how to manipulate time, to change history. But no place is perfect, not even paradise. And everything is constantly changing on this utopian island, including reality itself.
If Nix can read the ever-shifting tides, perhaps she will finally harness her abilities. Perhaps she can control her destiny, too.
Or perhaps her time will finally run out.
What I liked:
- All of the main characters went through a lot of great character development as they all tried to figure out their morals. I also liked how a lot of them ended up being morally grey because it made them feel more realistic.
- Nix in particular matures so much through out this book. She is such a great main character with a heart that is both tough and soft.
- This book focused a lot on the discussion of morals in regards to changing the past, and also discussing how all their time traveling effected the world and the characters themselves.
- The romance between Kash and Nix was so sweet and good! I had so much fun reading about it and swooning over it. I loved how they were so supportive and trusting of each other.
- The villain was amazing and he was also super fleshed out which made him seem even more evil. He was so creepy and manipulative, and I loved it!
- The plot was so suspenseful and mysterious and there were some twists in there I wasn’t expecting.
- I loved how everything made sense in the end, and how all the questions I had in the first book were answered.
- Once again, everything was really well researched and I loved how the plot of both books in this duology has some truths to them.
- Because of the time traveling, a lot of things came back around and it was really cool to see.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I think it ended the duology perfectly!
Would I recommend? Definitely!
