Nix has spent her whole life journeying to places both real and imagined aboard her time-traveling father's ship. And now it's finally time for her to take the helm. Her father has given up his obsession to save her mother -- and possibly erase Nix's existence -- and Nix's future lies bright before her. Until she learns that she is destined to lose the one she loves. But her relationship with Kash -- best friend, thief, charmer extraordinaire -- is only just beginning. How can she bear to lose him? How can she bear to become as adrift and alone as her father? Desperate to change her fate, Nix takes her crew to a mythical utopia to meet another Navigator who promises to teach her how to manipulate time. But everything in this utopia is constantly changing, and nothing is what it seems -- not even her relationship with Kash. Nix must grapple with whether anyone can escape her destiny, her history, her choices.… (més)

I would totally read more of these books. The characters are multicultural, flawed, and oh so fascinating.

Nix, now captain of the Temptation, while Slate recovers from his opium addiction, is drawn into an opportunity to perhaps change fate. Why does that matter? Joss predicted that she will lose one she loves to the sea. Unwilling to lose Kashmir, she takes the crew to the mythical island of Kys Kys. Adventure ensues, surprises await, things are changed, and betrayal occurs. But can fate be changed?

The sequel to The Girl From Everywhere is just as gutsy and sweet as the first book. It's a story packed with adventure and dark things that still finds time to be loving and sweet. I always worry about the 2nd book - it tells you whether the author really had a grip on all the things that made the first book great, or if they just got lucky. Thankfully, this book fulfills the promise of the first, and sets us up for more fun to follow. Definitely a recommendation for the older YA crowd, as well as adults looking for a good read.

Well, The Ship Beyond Time was just as good, if not better than its predecessor The Girl From Everywhere. The Girl From Everywhere sometimes dragged with intense descriptions of Hawaii's cultural and historical background and many readers found this detracted from the enjoyability of The Girl From Everywhere. In The Ship Beyond Time, Heilig seems to improved her writing to make it more entertaining for the masses while continuing to educate readers on mythological locations of cultural significance. Although this shift from heavily educating narrative to a more character driven plot could have made the sequel to The Ship Beyond Time a flop, Heilig seems to have taken reader criticism and further developed her writing skills – which were frankly highly developed to begin with - while continuing to be rich in cultural context and detail. The Ship Beyond Time continues to develop the crew of the Temptation into living entities to which every reader can relate.

Regardless of the reduction in instructive detail behind the cultural significance of her scenes, Heilig’s newest novel is no less poignant and culturally sensitive than book one of her time traveler series.

The Ship Beyond Time returns to the time-traveling ship Temptation where The Ship from Everywhere left off. Nix has begun to accept the events that unfolded during her last adventure and is actively looking to Navigate her first voyage without the aid of her father. The delivery of a message by a mythological princess fated to die thrusts the crew of the Temptation into another high stakes adventure through time and space. In a beautiful mythological utopia the crew discover revelations about the true nature of Navigation that affects the entire crew.

In The Ship Beyond Time my struggle with our romantic hero Kashmir was rectified. I was incredibly distrustful of his motives with Nix in The Girl From Everywhere and struggled to get a full picture on what sort of person Kashmir was beyond the Nix’s rose haze of luurve. Don’t get me wrong, I could see why Nix was so intensely connected to Kash: drug addicted father obsessed with resurrecting her dead mother and the lack of permanence of a life at sea and throughout time. Yet, when it came time to trust Kashmir’s intentions and motivations, I found myself holding back and waiting for some sort of betrayal. In The Ship Beyond Time, we get to delve into the history and psyche of Kashmir who is not all swagger as we are brought to believe in The Girl From Everywhere. In fact, by the end of The Ship Beyond Time I trusted and empathized with Kashmir who truly cares for Nix and is more “human” than his secretive and robotic self in The Girl From Everywhere. Go team Kash!

Keeping in line with character development: the Captain! Upon his drastic decision regarding his drug addiction, we see a different side of Slate. He is weak, emotional and he shows true affection for Nix. The complex relationship between Nix and Slate begins to settle which is a beautiful and welcome addition to The Ship Beyond Time. Unfortunately, without giving much away, we see some major breakthroughs towards healing between Nix and Slate before a major plot twist that changes everything. Dun, dun. Undoubtedly, book three will be all about the strengthened bond between Slate and Nix as well as her stronger bonds with the crew as a whole - if there is a book three, the synopsis claims this is the final book of the series.

Heiliig has a unique skill in making a diverse cast of characters without making it a political statement. I loved how each character was a different cultural background (even mythological in origin in one case), struggled with serious social issues and were of various sexual orientations. I loved even more that the casts’ diversity was not the main focus of The Ship Beyond Time, but a supportive aspect of the novel. With poise and grace, Heilig diversifies Nix’s rag tag crew aboard the Temptation while weaving together a coherent and enjoyable plot completely unrelated to the character’s diverse and sometimes difficult personal histories. In the realm of diverse literature, Heilig is ahead of the curve in creating sensitive and relatable literature for all ethnic groups. I am in hope that in the future, diverse literature can be more like Heilig’s writing: not focused on the differences between characters, but inclusive and supportive of all cultural backgrounds.

As with the first book, gorgeous nautical imagery throughout is an inspiring addition, reminding this reader why they started reading in the first place: a love of language and how carefully constructed sentences and create a beautiful message.

In the end, The Ship Beyond Time was an epic and beautiful novel of acceptance, empathy and forgiveness. Heilig successfully integrates more character development into an action packed plot steeped in mythology and fantasy to create a unique and picturesque novel. A breathtaking tale of survival, self-realization and acceptance, The Ship Beyond Time is a strong follow up to The Girl From Everywhere, with improved character development and more character driven action.

This novel will appeal to readers who enjoy nautical fiction, young adult fiction, novels featuring strong female leads with healthy romantic aspirations, complicated parental relationships, lovers of the mythological and/or time travel and those who enjoy novels with a diverse cast of characters. I would most definitely recommend reading the entire The Girl From Everywhere series - its not to be missed! ( )

I LOVED [b:The Girl from Everywhere|21979832|The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)|Heidi Heilig|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1434729653s/21979832.jpg|41290415], so I was really excited to read [b:The Ship Beyond Time|30653880|The Ship Beyond Time (The Girl From Everywhere, #2)|Heidi Heilig|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1481278349s/30653880.jpg|46168634]. 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 crazy.

Things I Liked:
Like in the first book, The Ship Beyond Time has a TON of action sequences. The story opens with a bang and we move on full throttle. The actions scenes are incredible intricate and blend past, present, and future with fate, destiny, and free will.

I really loved the parallel of Nix’s journey in this book, with Slate’s in the previous. Nix and her father finally seem to be a unified front, but now Nix must confront a future she dreads. Fated to lose the one she loves - much like her father in the previous book - Nix tries to do everything she can to keep Kashmir safe. It was really interesting to see Nix in this role. She and Slate butted heads so often in the last book because he was trying to save Lin, and dealing with the consequence, so it was nice to see Nix having to confront those difficult questions of fate, love, loss, and want you’re willing to sacrifice.

I LOVED that Kashmir has his own POV chapters in this story, because he was dealing with some really heavy stuff. Kash is still the charming and cocky thief we love, but he really starts to question his existence: His home was a myth so who’s to say he’s not a myth as well, is he just a creation of the cartographer or Navigator who found him? It’s some very heavy stuff that really packs an emotional punch, making the book have an overall more somber tone, but it really adds depth to Kashmir’s character.

There were some really nice twists that I did not see coming. And some new Navigation mythology introduced that really changes the game.

Like the previous book, The Ship Beyond Time has references to different cultures. I really loved all of the hints to Greek mythology, because I’m trash for all things Greek mythology related and I loved seeing how these different cultures changed what we knew about Navigation and our characters.

Things I Didn’t Like:
I didn’t think it was possible, but this was even more confusing that The Girl From Everywhere. There is so much back and forth time jumping, overlapped with memory loss and false memories/dream sequences that it can get pretty crazy. You HAVE to pay attention when you are reading this duology. By the end of the book everything becomes clear, but you need to focus to get there.

Gwen is a new character introduction who I felt I never really got to know. I would have liked more of her backstory with the Temptation crew, and how she got roped into the schemes of the book. She showed up like 3 times, at some integral scenes, but I felt like she could have been more of a presence or at least I could have not been indifferent to her.

I don’t even know how to talk about Blake. I felt like his actions were very much in character, but were also extremely selfish (not completely unlike Nix’s). Did he do what he did because he was fated to? Was this what was always supposed to happen? Can he be judged for it? Blake, like Kashmir, really brings some deep philosophical questions that don’t have a clear answer. All I know is that I would not have been as forgiving as Kashmir and Nix.

This was not a happy ending, but a satisfying one to this duology, if for no other reason than it made me think and feel a lot of emotions. This book added some really incredible depth to this series and these characters. I loved traveling across time and reality with them. I felt the love and family they had created. This is a fantastic action-packed adventure story with all the heart and personal growth you want. ( )
