Review: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Release date: January 5th 2016

Format: Hardcover

Pages: 486


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.

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.

My rating: ✮✮✮✮/5

Did I like this book, yes. Was I disappointed by it, yes!

This was one of my most anticipated books of 2016 and I couldn’t wait to read it, however I did found it a bit slow especially in the middle. At the beginning I was a bit confused and bored but I was hoping that it would pick up soon and as soon as we got onto the ship and into this new century I really found myself enjoying the book.

I absolutely loved Alexandra Brackens writing and I think that’s what made the reading experience really good and I also I loved was the traveling, to see different locations and centuries and I think that was very well done.

The characters were well developed and Etta and Nicholas complemented each other nicely. I personally don’t have a problem with instalove, but for someone who hates that, I wouldn’t recommend this book.

I am excited to see what the next book brings, especially after that ending!


My first post after quite a while! This week was pretty stressful and I didn’t have time to sit down a write, but weekends are for blogging!😊

I hope you liked my short review of Passenger by Alexandra Bracken and let me know what you are reading right now!☀︎☀︎
