I would give this book 4 for a review.
I've been orphaned by my time.
The timeline has changed.
My future is gone.
Etta Spencer didn't know she was a traveler until the day she emerged both miles and years from her home. Now, robbed of the powerful object that was her only hope of saving her mother, Etta finds herself stranded once more, cut off from Nicholas-the eighteenth century privateer she loves-and her natural time.
When Etta inadvertently stumbles into the heart of the Thorns, the renegade travelers who stole the astrolabe from her, she vows to finish what she started and destroy the astrolabe once and for all. Instead, she's blindsided by a bombshell revelation from their leader, Henry Hemlock: he is her father. Suddenly questioning everything she's been fighting for, Etta must choose a path, one that could transform her future.
Still devastated by Etta's disappearance, Nicholas has enlisted the unlikely help of Sophia Ironwood and a cheeky mercenary-for-hire to track both her and the missing astrolabe down. But as the tremors of change to the timeline grow stronger and the stakes for recovering the astrolabe mount, they discover an ancient power far more frightening than the rival travelers currently locked in a battle for control. . . a power that threatens to eradicate the timeline altogether.
From colonial Nassau to New York City, San Francisco to Roman Carthage, imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, New York Times #1 best-selling author Alexandra Bracken charts a gorgeously detailed, thrilling course through time in this stunning conclusion to the Passenger series.
This story came to an end in such a pretty way and the writing is still so well crafted and that has largely thanks to how Alex crafted the story. I really loved the new characters that we met and also the impact that they had on the main leads. The story had a super complicated plot and that is why I will be re-reading this book in the future. The book being so long, did drag at points but the mostly due to the complicated plot. I think re-reads will help with this issue. I loved the impact of the unexpected groupings had on the story growth and the focus on friendship and less on romance. I also loved all the time periods we visited and the insight we got on the character of rose. It was a very nice conclusion for this series.
Here is my review of the series non-spoiler:
