Sixteen-year-old Nix has spent her entire life aboard the Temptation, the time-traveling ship captained by her father. As long as her father has the original of any map, its destination real or imagined, the ship can travel back and forth, to any time and place. Her father has always aggressively sought after a map of 1868 Honolulu, the time just before he lost Nix’s mother in childbirth. He is desperate to go back in time and save her before it is too late – even if it means completely erasing Nix’s very own existence.
Because of this, Nix obviously doesn’t want her father to get the map. While her relationship with her father remains rather strange, Nix’s friendship with Kash, her charming Persian crew mate, is turning into something more than what it has been for the past two years. They begin to cross into uncharted territory, one that she is not sure either of them are ready for. Will Nix have enough time left to find out what might have been with Kash, or will she be pulled away from the world she knows because of her father’s rash actions?
In this, the first of a two-book series, Heilig spins a tale of adventure, travel, friendship, and love in a captivating way. This is the perfect sort of book to take on any adventure of your own.
