Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This genre-busting series—neither fantasy-romance nor historical fiction in disguise—offers an original take on a classic conundrum: if we can change the past, delete death and loss from life and love, what will it cost—and who pays? Nix’s narrative voice reveals a complicated protagonist who moves between trenchant pragmatism and poetic flights with fluidity.” Kirkus Reviews
“This artfully constructed sequel to The Girl from Everywhere does not disappoint, with even more romance and adventure than in the first installment…Thrilling, layered maritime fantasy.” School Library Journal
“Time-traveling Nix Song, sixteen, is back, and fans of The Girl from Everywhere will be delighted.” Booklist
“Time travel is a challenging trope to reinvent in a way that feels fresh and exciting, and Heilig succeeds with a flourish…The premise of these books is truly the perfect playground for adventure.” NPR
“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

Author Bio: Heidi Heilig

Heidi Heilig grew up in Hawaii where she rode horses and raised peacocks, and then she moved to New York City and grew up even more, as one tends to do. Her favorite thing, outside of writing, is travel, and she has haggled for rugs in Morocco, hiked the trails of the Ko’olau Valley, and huddled in a tent in Africa while lions roared in the dark. She holds an MFA from New York University in musical theater writing, of all things, and she’s written books and lyrics for shows including The Time Travelers Convention, Under Construction, and The Hole. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, her son and their pet snake.
