Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken

September 8, 2017

The final instalment of Alexandra Bracken's Passenger Duology was incredible and I'm so sad that the series is over. I'm wishing (though I know it's probably futile) that there may be a spin off series, or prequel in the future. I just want more from this world. Etta is a time traveler - well her family is. Currently, she has no idea about this. Then during the most important Violin Recital of her career she is transported back in time. Aboard a ship. 

Once again, I struggled to get in the this novel to begin with (which is a common theme for me at the moment.) I know its simply because of the time between publication and because I'm to lazy to re-read the previous books. I think I'm going to have to start doing that in order to fully appreciate the books... though the TBR mountain range might scupper that idea. 

The Passenger series are the only books by Alexandra Bracken that I have read... so far... though I'm not sure I'm ready to put my heart through more of her torture. Throughout the entire book I was waiting and waiting and praying that Nick and Etta finally reunite. Then they do... FOR ALL OF TEN MINUTES. Imagine, its the early hours of the morning and the couple you have been rooting for have just met again..only to be torn apart because Nick has to do the right thing. DAMMIT NICK. I couldn't scream in frustration, I had to settle for weeping into my pillow quietly. Then once I somewhat regained my composure I finished the book and oh my god. THEY FOUND EACH OTHER. It was wonderful and I'm so happy with how this series ended. 

One of the major bonuses of this series was the side characters. I don't know if anyone else feels the same as I do but sometimes side characters become my favourites (not to say that I don't love Nick and Etta.) I loved Li Min, I thought she had the most interesting backstory, even if she slightly manipulated it to suit her needs time and time again. I also loved how Alexandra (I never know how to refer to authors...) didn't make a spectacle of her sexuality. Li Min is a gay Asian female, and thats that. She just is. My favourite scene is where we are first introduced to her and she asks for a kiss as payment and Nick immediately assumes from him.

"I was speaking to her." - Li Min is everything and her love hate relationship with Sophia was wonderful. 

Etta's father Henry was also such a great addition to the series. I'd love to know more about him and his work with the Thorns before Etta arrived (remember that spin off series I wanted....)

If you have any interest in history I highly recommend this series, with the time travelling element we get to see so many times and places. It's incredible! Alexandra has such a way with words, her writing is so easy to read and enjoyable.
