About the Author

Heidi Heilig is the author of The Girl from Everywhere, which was an Indie Next Pick and was also named a Best Book of the Year by NPR; its sequel, The Ship Beyond Time; and the Shadow Players trilogy: For a Muse of Fire, A Kingdom for a Stage, and On This Unworthy Scaffold. Heidi Heilig holds an MFA from New York University in musical theater writing, and she's written the book and lyrics for several shows. She grew up in Hawaii, where she rode horses and raised peacocks. Her favorite thing, outside of writing, is travel, and she has haggled for rugs in Morocco, hiked the trails of the Ko'olau Valley, and huddled in a tent in South Africa. Heidi Heilig lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her family.

Reviews

"With her deft touch, Heilig re-immersed me in her world of maps and out-of-time misfits in an adventure with greater stakes, more time-travel tricks and a love story that defies the laws of the universe itself. Heilig could give Dr. Who a run for his money." -- Alwyn Hamilton, author of Rebel of the Sands

"This artfully constructed sequel to The Girl from Everywhere does not disappoint, with even more romance and adventure than in the first installment....[A] thrilling, layered maritime fantasy...Recommend both titles to fans of Alexandra Bracken's "Passenger" books and Rick Riordan's mythology-inspired fiction." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"[A] genre-busting series...Nix's narrative voice reveals a complicated protagonist who moves between trenchant pragmatism and poetic flights with fluidity. ...this ingeniously plotted time twister deepens the narrative, sharpens characterization, and raises the stakes, leaving readers...wanting more." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Time traveling Nix Song, 16, is back, and fans of The Girl from Everywhere will be delighted. ...well worth adding to collections that have the first title." -- Booklist

"Time travel is a challenging trope to reinvent in a way that feels fresh and exciting, and Heilig succeeds with a flourish. ...the premise of these books is truly the perfect playground for adventure." -- NPR.org
