Note: This post reviews the second book of The Girl From Everywhere Series. You may like to read the first book in the series, The Girl From Everywhere, before reading this review.
After spending sixteen years following her father on his never-ending search to get her mother back, Nix decides to take her life and the Temptation, their time-traveling ship, into her own hands. But when she learns that she is to lose the one she loves to the sea, she sets off on her own quest to change the past – and hopefully the future. She cannot bear the thought of losing Kashmir, her crewmate, her best friend, and love of her life, without first trying to save him.
Nix receives a map to a mythical island from a stranger who promises her knowledge about changing the past. She decides to sail with her crew to this island, Ker-Y’s, and there she begins to unravel mystery upon mystery concerning Crowhurst, a man who has manipulated time and made himself king of the island, and his daughter Dahut, who cannot remember her own past. Nix is familiar with the myth of Ker-Y’s – how the daughter of the king opened the sea gates at high tide, causing the flood and destruction of the island. Hoping there is a way to rewrite the ending of this legend, Nix, Kash, and Blake, the boy who joined them back in Hawaii, do everything they can to prevent Crowhurst from endangering the lives of many. But as they slowly uncover the truth, they realize that history may just be beyond anyone’s control.
This second and final book of The Girl From Everywhere Series was everything I had hoped it would be and more. It held my attention even more than the first book, and kept me turning pages to see how it would all end. The blend of history and myth was fascinating, and the blend of adventure and romance was just right. This two-book series is one that I would recommend to fans of adventure, travel, and love, and I know I will come back to read it again.
