I was lucky enough to get tagged by my good friends Trang and Lashaan @ Bookidote to do the Harry Potter tag! It’s a brand new tag that they invented and I have to tell you, it is very clever. There’s only one rule: you cannot use a Harry Potter book in your answers 😉
★★★.5/5 | Goodreads
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.
If I’m being honest to myself, I don’t know how to feel about this book. I really wanted to love this book and I think my high expectations got the best of me.
January and February were two hectic months and obviously that means that I could only get little to no reading time since the new year started. I basically read only one book and then I gave up for a couple of weeks straight. To add to that depressing fact, my 2016 Reading challenge is telling me I am currently 3 books behind 👎 Thanks, Goodreads.
