"Bracken's knowledge of history is formidable... [Her] prose shines."―School Library Journal
"Bracken is always aware of how women, same-sex relationships, and biracial Nicholas would be received in times that range from ancient Carthage to imperial Russia to 1906 San Francisco... The stakes are high, and those who have followed Etta on her journeys won't be putting this down until the explosive end."―Booklist

Without the ability to travel through time, Etta Spencer and Nicholas Carter never would have met, gotten to know one another, fallen in love. Being a traveler wasn’t inherently a bad thing. But there were risks. And there were often serious consequences. And over the centuries those with the ability to travel, intentionally or not, caused so much damage and destruction that reverting back to the original timeline seemed like the best solution to a growing problem.
But the only way to do that would be to find the device that could make that happen. Again. This time without any clues as to who has it, where it is, or when it is. This time facing even more danger, confronting deadlier foes, working with an even more challenging timeframe. This time searching without each other.
Twists and turns, secrets and betrayal, heartbreak and loss fill this story. Love and hope, strength and honor, bravery and sacrifice infuse its every page. The journeys are harrowing, nail-biting, tension-filled, heart-stopping. The love story is sweet, bittersweet, and so very romantic. The ending is unforgettable.
What Alexandra Bracken did in this follow-up to an extraordinary first book in the series is outstanding. She delivers more beautifully-written passages, paints more stunning pictures with her words, invents more intriguing time-travel locations, introduces more interesting characters, reveals more about the travelers, the families, the past, offers more food for thought, creates more heart-wrenching moments.
WAYFARER will fill you with wonder, bring tears to your eyes, and leave you desperately wishing your travels through time with these characters never had to end.
Expect to be surprised. Expect to be transported. Expected to be riveted from start to finish. And expect to fall madly in love with this rich, gorgeous, and absolutely remarkable read.
But there is a lot of untold secrets and ancient mysteries that Etta and Nicholas will discover that might change everything.
They have to distinguish between friends and foes and figure out the best course of action that will hopefully bring peace to the constantly fighting time travel families and holds the brightest future.
I liked this second and final book a lot more than the first book that I thought focused too much on the romance. Here we get a lot more of action and a plot that you don’t know where will take you until the very end. I also liked that we get to know more characters well (other than Etta and Nicolas).
The issues that I had while reading is that I would have liked to see some more hints in book one about some stuff that is introduced in this book so there wouldn’t be as much information dump. And I sometimes found scenes confusing and couldn’t quite picture them unless reading sentences over again.
But overall I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a good conclusion to this duology.
I've rarely experienced that feeling where I am on the edge of my metaphorical seat, where I'm desperately searching between the printed type to figure out how, and even if, our characters are going to escape pain/death/loss/etc. Here, the last third had me wishing I was Catholic so I could have a rosary to clutch, and the last hundred pages had me screaming internally as I raced to find out what would happen.
I also want to note that, just like with Passenger, Wayfarer did such a good job of being conscious of the social issues that were observed. One of the recurring questions posed in this book is how a traveler's role puts them in the position of having to decide how one reacts to the injustices they witness, and it couldn't be a more fitting theme to present, especially now. A scene in the latter half of the book comes to mind, but you could just as easily fan the pages of the book and throw a dart to land on any number of well-placed examples.
This book is exciting, romantic, diverse, complex, and an excellent example of craft. I seriously can not wait to see what else Alexandra Bracken comes up with (and for The Darkest Minds film!)
