A heart-stopping adventure that defies time and space—New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu calls it "an incredibly intricate, brilliantly paced, masterfully written journey."

Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time traveler from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in ancient Rome, Far's very existence defies the laws of nature. All he's ever wanted was to explore history for himself, but after failing his entrance exam into the government program, Far will have to settle for a position on the black market-captaining a time-traveling crew to steal valuables from the past.

During a routine heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl named Eliot who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Eliot has secrets-big ones-that will affect Far's life from beginning to end. Armed with the knowledge that history is not as steady as it seems, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to set things right before the clock runs out.

This book actually really enjoyable.I really enjoyed the concept of time traveling, and I felt like it was done really well in this book. I didn't give this books higher rating because I found myself really bored in the middle. For about 150 pages or a little over that I just felt like there wasn't much happening. But that ending though made up for it and that's why it's almost a 4 star rating. I wish there was more time traveling involved but oh well.

Take a ride with this action packed time travelling adventure and the quirky crew of the Invictus. You will enjoy getting to know this group of characters who risk much to do the thing they love until a mysterious dimension hopping alternate throws everything off and draws the Invictus' crew into a race against the time consuming Fade.

Do yourself a favor and journey through time with seventeen year old Farway and his motley crew of thieves as they pull off black market heists and race against the clock to save the multiverse from a destructive force known as the Fade. The diverse, well-developed cast adds a wildly enchanting layer to a novel that is perfect for both teen and adult readers.
