This week I am waiting on
Invictus by Ryan Graudin
Publication Date: September 19th 2017
Time flies when you’re plundering history.
Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far’s birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he’s ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past.
But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far’s very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.
Ryan Graudin blew me away with the Blood for Blood duology so I am so excited to see that she has a new book coming out this year. I’ve said this a few times but time travel is a hit or miss for me but I love that this book appears to be exploring the consequences and perils of time traveling. I also love getting a chance to explore all of these historical settings and the dangers they find themselves in.
What’s your most anticipated book?
