Ship Beyond Time
|Ship Beyond Time
On a warm December day in 1884 the Temptation was leaving Hawaii, as well as the 19th century, on the hunt for its next adventure . . . Now that her father has stopped chasing the past, Nix finally has the chance to figure out her future. When she comes across a fanciful French map detailing the fabled city of Ker-Ys, in the South Pacific, she is curious. Could she navigate to its mythical location? The city is a utopia and there, Nix finally meets her mother. But does this mean she can save her, or indeed, avoid her own fate? Just as she and Kash are becoming closer, Nix discovers that she’s destined to lose the man she loves the most. But can she steer their romance away from this danger.
Reviews, News & Interviews:
With her deft touch, Heilig re-immersed me in her world of maps and out-of-time misfits in an adventure with greater stakes, more time-travel tricks and a love story that defies the laws of the universe itself. Heilig could give Dr. Who a run for his money. — Alwyn Hamilton, author of Rebel of the Sands
Time traveling Nix Song, 16, is back, and fans of The Girl from Everywhere will be delighted. ...well worth adding to collections that have the first title. — Booklist
