Waiting on Wednesday (24): PASSENGER

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine!

Title: Passenger
Author: Alexandra Bracken
Series: Passenger #1
Release date: January 5, 2016

Summary: Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragedy has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn't even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time. 

Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst of a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed ot the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies--the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of discovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web. 

Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light--threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home...forever. 

Thoughts: I haven't yet read The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken. (I know! Shoot me know!) But that is definitely on my TBR for this year. But THIS book just sounds so fabulous. Time travel? Handsome young prize master?? Violin prodigy?!?! I mean, come on. This sounds just up my alley. And that cover. Ugh, it's so gorgeous. I can't wait to have it on my bookshelf! 

Tell me: what are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? Does my choice sound interesting to you? Let me know in the comments below!
