Waiting on Wednesday: Passenger (Passenger #1) by Alexandra Bracken

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's my selection for this week…
Expected publication: January 5, 2016 
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.

ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever
I was a huge fan of Alexandra Bracken's novel Brightly Woven. Reading that story, I know how crafty and skilled Bracken is with her fantasy writing pen. It's been years since I fell into her storytelling, and coming across Passenger, I know she'll once again catapult me into her story that crosses centuries and continents. Passenger sounds amazing! I can't wait to get my hands on this book and journey with Etta and Nicholas!
