The breathtaking sequel to the acclaimed The Girl from Everywhere.

“Fresh and exciting . . . truly the perfect playground for adventure.”—

“Thrilling.”—School Library Journal (starred review)

Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her future lies bright before her—until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves.

Desperate to change her fate, Nix sails her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems. Not even her relationship with Kash: best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire.

Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. At the center of this adventure are extraordinary, complicated, and multicultural characters who leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds.

This sequel—and conclusion—to The Girl from Everywhere includes five black-and-white maps of historical and mythical locations. Fans of Leigh Bardugo, Sabaa Tahir, and Outlander will be swept away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly enjoyable! Like the first book in the series, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this second instalment. Mild pirate vibes but mostly a weird combination of time travel, geography and myths, which I totally enjoyed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent sequel This was ok. I liked returning to the character's world, and it was fairly well written, but it was one of those time travel books that leave me with a headache and wondering what the heck went on. Also, it felt very much like a middle book, with lots of unanswered questions, so I'm interested to see if there'll be another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful This series is such a unique blend of fantasy, historical fiction and time travel. I've never read anything like it, but I want more. This second book was a bit harder to get through, but I suspect that was my own circumstances rather than anything to do with Heidi's writing. Today I finished the last half of the book and, man, I think that it is among the most beautiful love stories that I have read. Tragedy and hope all at once; it really pulled on my heart strings! I'm torn between wanting a Book 3 and wanting the ending left exactly the way it is now.
