Alexandra Bracken, author of the Darkest Minds series, has plunged into the world of Science Fiction with her novel Passenger. Violin protégé Etta Spencer knows she’s destined for big things in the music scene – what she doesn’t know is that she is unwittingly part of something much bigger than she could ever imagine. After hearing the earsplitting call of a time passage, Etta finds herself forced into an adventure through time that could be the death of her and her mother. She is born to a rare family of people who can travel through time. In order to save them both Etta must track down an ancient family relic before the greedy patriarch of the Ironwood family can get his hands on it. Who can Etta trust when everyone she encounters has their own agenda for the relic?
Passenger is a fast paced race through time narrated through alternating female and male voices. It is the first novel of a series that is sure to appeal to a variety of readers with its action, adventure, romance and a splash of history.
