    Release date: February 28, 2017I really like ships and Heidi Heilig's writing, so obviously this was a fun read.It took me some time in the first book to figure out the rules for time travel in this series and how everything operated (like how they can go to real worlds and fantasy/mythological worlds as long as they have a map... and how a map can't be used twice). So this second book was a lot easier to get into! Plus, it really addressed a lot...

    2/21/2017 ONE WEEK LEFT. I MADE A BOOK TRAILER TO DEAL WITH MY NERVES. looking back i feel like such a jerk, like what author talks such smack about their own book?Me, obviously. Me, the jerk.11/17/15 Currently in first round edits and irrationally angry at this book, good thing i'm not gonna pick a star rating because OH BOY.

    Pirates and maps and time travel, like hello you have my HEART. I admit I was a littel confused by the paradoxes, the alternate realities, and rewriting history but pffft. I'll reread it via audio at some point and I'm bound to get it better then. (I'm 100% better with stuff like that via auditory for some reason.) Such a good trilogy though and highly recommend!!I also am wildly in adoration of sassy-thief-master Kash and epic-navigating-magical...

    Actual rating: 3.5 stars“Our lives are before us, not behind.”“That depends on where you’re standing on the timeline.” A couple of months ago when I first held The Girl from Everywhere in my hands, I was expecting a really fun read with adventures, time-travel, hot Persian thieves and an unforgettable image of the 19th century Hawaii. In the end I definitely got my adventures with the charming thief and authentic image of Hawaii, the ti...

    Oh man. I don't even know where to start with this one. I loved the set up for this book. I really enjoyed the first book, but I was eager to see how the relationship between Nix and Kashmir progressed. And for the most part, it didn't disappoint. There are definitely some things that transpired between them that made me angry, but I was mostly happy. Plot wise, I was captivated. I loved the story and how things happened. This time around, I didn...

    I sent this letter to the author and am posting it here because I'm so concerned for other Native people who might pick up this book. This isn't meant to publicly shame the author at all. She seems like a generally good person who has done a lot of great social justice work, and I'm not suggesting that anyone attack her personally. But critiquing the book is another matter. Because the fact is, this book hurt me as a Native person. A lot. And I w...

    3.5*This was a satisfying conclusion but I was a bit bored in the middle if I am being honest. The beginning and end were really interesting but the middle I just honestly found a bit boring. The conclusion was very satisfying though and was not wrapped pretty like a lot of book series, which I appreciate. They characters are still fun and have amusing dialogue. My only complaint about the characters is that Nix could be annoyingly stubborn, but ...

    4.5Not sure if I loved this /quite/ as much as the first one, but I can't put my finger on maybe I did? Idk. This book DOES focus on one of my favorite mythical cities, Ys. I'm a huge Breton history and folklore nerd so this was a personal bonus. THERE IS MORE KASH. Lots more. Way more. It's great. And there's lots of canoodling. *eyebrow waggle*Waiting on the maps in the finished copy.......
  • Aila
    Awesome sequel! It was action-packed and had much more plot development, much more myths and legends, and much more swoony times with Kash. :D I only wish the we got a bit more character development with some of the secondary characters (and a smidge disappointed by the ending but probably because I wanted more). Review to come on Happy Indulgence
  • Louisa
    Such a great book! And a great second half of the duology, so enjoyable, and how things wrapped up! Great book!
  • Lauren ✨ (YABookers)
    Disclaimer: I received a free copy via Edelweiss for review purposes.Last year I read The Girl from Everywhere, Heidi Heilig's debut SFF time-travelling novel, and I LOVED it. You can read my review here, but I basically praised the characters, the character dynamics and interactions, the setting, and the SFF elements. I loved EVERYTHING. I especially loved Kash. So I was fairly sure that I was going to love this one too, and no surprise, I did. ...
  • Lauren Stoolfire
    What a brilliant follow up and conclusion to this absolutely enthralling time travel adventure. I wish I could say that I'll be seeing more of Nix and Kashmir (easily a couple of my favorite YA characters), but I appreciated the ending which is both hopeful, bittersweet, and left just the right amount of open. If you haven't tried this series yet, what are you waiting for? To say I'm looking forward to Heidi Heilig's future projects is an underst...
  • Casey
    What a book, I loved this even more then the first. Nix is on the way to NY, her Dad is coming down from a drug addiction and not in the best shape, and she's received a prediction that her Love: Kash is going to die at sea. While going out on shore leave in NY Nix and Kash are stopped by a girl who can't remember much but knows she had a letter and a map to deliver to Nix. Inside Nix finds a map to a Utopia, a mythical island, and also a promise...

    I aspire to the level of thoughtfulness it would take to write like Heidi.

    Oh fucking goddamn holy shit this was better than the first? It moved faster, I cared more, what a fucking ride
  • Nouf *LostinFantasy*
    My rating: 3.5/5 stars (rounded up to 4). "It's never up to you what happens. Your only choice is what to do when it does. What kind of person will you decide to be?” Sequels are always best when they take what worked in the first book and expand on it - add depth to it. This book accomplished that in some ways, and in other ways it fell a bit short.I'll start with what I liked:--In the The Girl from Everywhere, we know the characters can tr...
  • Cori Reed
    I really enjoyed this book, and as a duology it's definitely one of my favourites. Heidi Heilig's writing is beautiful, but also fast paced and exciting. Also, time traveling sailors/pirates with smooching.
  • Audra (Unabridged Chick)
    I had been on pins and needles for this book after inhaling (and loving) the previous novel, The Girl From Everywhere (which also made my top ten of 2016). I'm really wrestling over whether this book was as good as the first one -- or better -- and it's given me a serious book hangover.I'm not sure I can really recap the story without getting into the weeds, and I really don't want to give away anything crucial. Our heroine, Nix, and her father...
  • Puput
    3.5 starsJust like The Girl from Everywhere I received a signed copy of this book (the ARC) from the kind and lovely Heidi Helig herself. Thank you so much Heidi! <3I had a high expectation for The Girl from Everywhere and was disappointed because the actual book didn't live up to it. That's why I lowered my expectation going into this book and it was a good thing that I ended up enjoying it more. Dare I say, The Ship Beyond Time was a lot better...
  • Karen
    See my full review and much more on my blog KissinBlueKaren Check out my review for THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE The main plot for Nix is Kashmir’s fate. Nix is trying to save Kashmir from drowning by going to a mythical city that is said to have been flooded. That really made no sense, but Nix is desperate to not loose Kash. At the end of the first book it seemed like Nix was caught in a love triangle, but in this story Blake is cast aside for K...

    i laughed, i cried, i felt the hollowness of the existential shriek somewhere behind my sternum, i felt the impact of acceptance and love in a world ostensibly comprised of chaos, i cried again
  • Kayla
    This duology was definitely not something I would normally pick up so I'm glad I tried it even though it really wasn't for me.
  • Caitlyn
    2.5 A few of Heilig's similes are gorgeous—and I'm overcome with envy: throat wounds puckered like red lips, sea spray like diamonds, stars like pearls. A per usual, her character insight is in-depth, yet TSBT's pacing is slow and its ending uncertain.Yet Kash continues to be his charming, poem-loving, thieving self—and Heilig's diverse character cast is on point: Persian, Chinese, Indian, gay and straight. An exquisite time travel fantasy on...
  • Danielle (Life of a Literary Nerd)
    "Regnabo, regno, regnavi, sum sin regno.I shall reign, I reign, I have reigned, I have no kingdom." I LOVED The Girl from Everywhere, so I was really excited to read The Ship Beyond Time. I wanted more of the characters I fell in love with and their time-traveling, map-jumping world. I’m happy to say we get even more action and suspense in this follow up with a lot of surprising depth too - that really had my emotions going up and down like cra...
  • Silvana [The Book Voyagers]
    Heidi Heilig is simply the best. She wrote a sequel that was greater than the first book. I thought it couldn't be possible, because sometimes you get disappointed when you read the sequels of that great first book. But Heidi created something even more magical and lovely.The Ship Beyond Time is more time travels on a ship called The Temptation. With a rather larger crew on it. There is more myths and stories and you'll recognize maybe some thing...
  • Wendy Bunnell
    I liked this second book even more than I liked The Girl From Everywhere, and I thought several times about posting a comment while reading, indicating how caught up I was in the book. But then I didn't want to pause long enough to do that. And then I was a little confused at the ending and had to back it up to figure out what had happened (audiobooks, go figure). Anyway, it was engrossing. It held my attention. I listened to the entire audiobook...
  • Kathy MacMillan
    I loved THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE and I found myself utterly swept away by THE SHIP BEYOND TIME. It actually took me a couple of weeks to read it, not because it was hard to get through, but because this is the kind of book I wanted to just lose myself in, so I refused to even pick it up unless I had time to do so. This is a book to savor, from the lush, intricate worldbuilding, to the complex characters and their shifting relationships, to the ri...
  • rachel
    2.5 starsThe Ship Beyond Time was not a strong conclusion. I nearly DNFed this book multiple times. In fact, it took a steadfast focus to stop myself from skimming through to the end. I was not engaged in the story in the slightest. The plot was messy. It felt completely rushed and disjointed. Maybe I am just not intelligent enough to puzzle it together from the half-strung theories Nix seemed to understand in an instant? Whatever my excuse may b...
  • Mel (Daily Prophecy)
    First things first; I don't like time travel. The author managed to did a great job with the aspect itself, almost making it feel believable, but there is just something about it that doesn't click with me. Ever. I do like how it combined with the fantasy setting, which is more pronounced this time, and how Nix deals with it.Nix and Kashmir have a good dynamic, but this book falls for the same thing that bothers me often; Nix pushes him away all ...
  • Jeanne
    The swashbuckling, swoon-worthy sequel to The Girl From Everywhere. If you haven't read the first book, you now have the opportunity to read this luscious duology back-to-back. Lucky you!
