The Ship Beyond Time by Heidi Heilig
Published by: Greenwillow Books on February 28th 2017
Review Source: Edelweiss, Publisher
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy with a dash of Historical / Mythological Radness
Plot: Nix might have changed her fate in Hawaii and launched her future as a Navigator, but that doesn’t mean it is going to be smooth sailing for her and her crew.
Review: Here at Owls & Vowels, I sometimes like to spice things up a bit with my reviews. Since I LOVED this book (and the series) I thought it could be fun to turn it into a bit of a dating game! I give you three people who should DATE THIS BOOK!
#1: Those who love mythology, folklore, and fairy tales. Much like its predecessor, Heilig weaves together modernity with myth to create Nix’s world. I consider myself to be relatively knowledgeable when it comes to myth, but Heilig has me beat! Her attention to detail and pacing are perfect for helping readers settle into these new worlds.
#2: Those who love Sherlock or Doctor Who. Imagine you have a historical fiction that is well seasoned with Sci-Fi and topped with a Mystery zest. Delicious.
#3: Those looking for diverse characters who are fully realized and likable. I have so much admiration for Heidi Heilig as an author and as a person. She is an outspoken advocate for the LGBTQ community, as well as for those with a mental illness. Her passion for creating inclusiveness and understanding is a prevalent force in her writing as well. I truly cherish her as an advocate, ally, and champion.
Bonus Date: For the experienced book lover (a.k.a. those who read The Girl from Everywhere), those who loved Kashmir will relish this one.
Final Hoot: While this second installment felt a little different form the first, I still loved it. I REALLY hope there is a third book coming.
Rating: 5 out of 5 hoots.
Who Should Snag It: Anyone who is looking for time travel, myth, and mystery should grab this series.
