GIVEAWAY: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken

I discovered Passenger by Alexandra Bracken in the weeks leading up to BEA last May and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it’s release ever since.  As I said in this video, two of the main factors that really drew me to this book are 1) time travel and 2) pirates.  I had been hesitant to read the ARC I waited in line for (for hours I might add) because I heard that an updated draft had already been completed that would make many changes to the book’s final published story.  I decided to table it and wait until I could read the book Alexandra Bracken intended the reader to read.  Little did I know that an updated copy would be showing up at my doorstep a couple of months early!  Passenger is my most anticipated read of 2016 and I feel so blessed to be afforded the opportunity to check it out in 2015.  But the most exciting part of this story is that Disney Hyperion is also allowing me to giveaway a copy of Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger to one lucky blog reader!

If you’re like me and you feel like you can’t wait until January 5th for the official release, Disney has been kind enough to provide us with an e-book sampler to tide us over until then.


About the Book

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. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, his passenger, can find. In order to protect her, Nick must ensure she brings it back to them–whether she wants to or not.

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. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are playing, treacherous forces threaten to separate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home… forever.


One (1) copy of Passenger by Alexandra Bracken will be given away.  Prize is provided by Disney-Hyperion and will ship early January following the release of the book.  Open to US addresses only.

    This sounds like such a good book! (It was already on my to-read list even.) I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find it funny that there’s a character called Nicholas Carter in it. You know, kinda like the Backstreet Boy. I was such a fangirl of them in middle school/junior high so it could totally just be me finding that amusing. :)

    Passenger is so, so good, Kristin! I really enjoyed it (and I definitely want to reread it when I get a finished copy next year). Will I be seeing you at the Truthwitch/Passenger event at Books of Wonder? I hope so!

  5. […] Passenger by Alexandra Bracken was my most anticipated ARC at BEA (and I managed to get it!) but after finding out there was an updated draft I made an executive decision to wait until the finished copy… until, an updated ARC was printed.  I was lucky enough to receive one and the moment it appeared in my mailbox I was so ready to dive in!  I’m very happy to say thatPassenger did not disappoint.  The story is full of time travel and pirates (two instant selling points for myself) and it follows Etta and Nicholas who embark on a journey through time to recover an artifact that could destroy the time stream completely if it falls into the wrong hands.  From the moment I started reading until the moment I finished I was completely enthralled with the story and the characters.  Passenger is a truly gripping read.  You still have time to enter my Passenger giveaway too!
