Alexander Bracken will be embarking on a brand new series, a duology that starts with Passenger. Read the first three chapters now!
The Darkest Minds author will be writing about something completely different this time around, but it’s certainly no less interesting! Check out the cover and the official synopsis of the first book, Passenger, below:
“Violin prodigy Etta Spencer had big plans for her future, but a tragic accident has put her once-bright career at risk. Closely tied to her musical skill, however, is a mysterious power she doesn’t even know she has. When her two talents collide during a stressful performance, Etta is drawn back hundreds of years through time. Etta wakes, confused and terrified, in 1776, in the midst of a fierce sea battle. Nicholas Carter, the handsome young prize master of a privateering ship, has been hired to retrieve Etta and deliver her unharmed to the Ironwoods, a powerful family in the Colonies — the very same one that orchestrated her jump back, and one Nicholas himself has ties to. But discovering she can time travel is nothing compared to the shock of uncovering the true reason the Ironwoods have ensnared her in their web. Another traveler has stolen an object of untold value from them, and, if Etta can find it, they will return her to her own time. Out of options, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the mysterious traveler. But as they draw closer to each other and the end of their search, the true nature of the object, and the dangerous game the Ironwoods are playing, comes to light — threatening to separate her not only from Nicholas, but her path home…forever.”
The first three chapters are available to read now:
Passenger will hit shelves in January 2016, so we still have a while to wait. In the meantime, if you’re a Star Wars fan, be sure to check out her novel, A New Hope: The Princess, the Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy, due out September 22, 2015.
