Okay, so no promises, but I am going to try to find some pre-order swag on Sundays. We’ll see how this goes.
First up is this adorable swag for Heidi Heilig’s The Ship Beyond Time, which is being released on 2/28 (next week!)
I am just finishing up book 1 in her series, The Girl from Everywhere, and am loooving it so much. It’s full of adventure, interesting world-travel, and I dig the dysfunctional relationship that the main character Nix has with her father, Slate. (Is that weird? Maybe I’m just glad that not every father-daughter relationship is perfect and supportive with hugs and waffles. It’s not that they don’t get along, they definitely do love each other, but there is a whole lot going on there.) I hope to finish TGFE today or tomorrow, so I’ll have a review up soon! This is one of those books where I knew I had to read it soon since the second book is coming out. Basically, TBRP (to-be-read-panic! oh the horror!).
Anyway, if you have pre-ordered the new book, or were planning to, head over to Heidi’s page here (while supplies last): http://www.heidiheilig.com/preorder/
Goodreads info on The Ship Beyond Time:
The breathtaking sequel to the acclaimed The Girl from Everywhere. Nix has escaped her past, but when the person she loves most is at risk, even the daughter of a time traveler may not be able to outrun her fate—no matter where she goes. Fans of Rae Carson, Alexandra Bracken, and Outlander will fall hard for Heidi Heilig’s sweeping fantasy.
Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father’s ship. And now it’s finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother—and possibly erase Nix’s existence—and Nix’s future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash—best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire—is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father?
Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems—not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices. Heidi Heilig weaves fantasy, history, and romance together to tackle questions of free will, fate, and what it means to love another person. But at the center of this adventure are the extraordinary, multifaceted, and multicultural characters that leap off the page, and an intricate, recognizable world that has no bounds. The sequel—and conclusion—to the indie darling The Girl from Everywhere will be devoured by fans of Rachel Hartman and Maggie Stiefvater. Includes black-and-white maps.
