WEDNESDAY IS HERE
I’ve been awful about my blog these past two months, and I have to apologize again. I’m going to do my best to get going with it again, and hopefully the creative juices will flow! Anyway, Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and you all know that it’s for books we can’t wait for. This week’s selection will kick off our 2016 reading year, with a release date of January 5, 2016. Without further ado, here’s
Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn’t even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time.
Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies–the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web.
Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light — threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home… forever.
WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Personally, I’m pumped! Even though I haven’t read A.B.’s Darkest Minds series, I’ve heard a lot of good things about her writing and storytelling. And when you combine music, pirates, and time travel, you’ve got an automatic fan! I’m really excited to see how this one plays out- there’s a lot of possibilities, and I’m trying not to let my expectations get too high, but I’ve got my eye on this one and can’t wait to read it when it comes out in January.
What’s your Waiting On Wednesday? Are you looking forward to Passenger?
