Alex also revealed her other favorite relationships in the book. (Sophia and Li Min, Etta and Julian.) Who she would want to write about if she could write another book from the Passenger world. (Julian, with possibly his own love story.) Which character she’d want to have dinner with. (Julian, again. Etta, too.)
Of course, the ultimate question we had for Alex was if she could time travel and could bring one thing with her, what would it be and where would she go.
Man. Well, it totally depends on if you’re going into the future or if you’re going into the past. If you’re going into the far future, it would be just as hard as going to the past, because even from the time I was a kid to now, and I was born in 1987, technology has changed so much and has developed so quickly that I can only imagine what it would be like in 300 or 400 years.
Even language evolves, so words might have different meanings, the way that words in Nicholas’ time had different meanings than the same words in Etta’s time, for instance. Going into the future, I feel like I would bring a notebook so I could keep notes.
If I was going into the past, I think I would probably bring matches with me. I feel like I would freeze to death or drink bad water. I have very little belief in myself as a survivalist, so I feel like fire is necessary. Maybe antibiotics and everyone would call me a witch I’m sure. It’s really awful to be a woman travelling back in time for the most part.
We loved chatting with Ms. Bracken and we hope you all enjoy the adventure that is Wayfarer!
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.
