Sixteen-year-old Nix has sailed across the globe and through centuries aboard her time-traveling father's ship. But when he gambles with her very existence, it all may be about to end. Nix's life began in Honolulu in 1868. Since then she has traveled to far-off lands and long-ago eras. As long as he has a map, Nix's father can sail his ship, The Temptation, to any place, any time. But now he's uncovered the one map he's always sought-- 1868 Honolulu, before Nix's mother died in childbirth. Nix's life-- her entire existence-- is at stake. No one knows what will happen if her father changes the past. If Nix helps her father reunite with the love of his life, will it cost her her own?

"In this opening of Heilig's planned two-part adventure, narrator Kim Mai Guest brings listeners right into the mind and heart of Nix. The 16-year-old sails alongside her father on their ship, TEMPTATION, across time and space--as long as they have a new map to follow--in a desperate bid to change their family's history. However, Guest doesn't always differentiate characters enough to make them distinct, and some of her accents sound forced, especially among members of the ship's crew. She also appears to struggle with the Hawaiian words used throughout the story. Nevertheless, her narration beautifully captures Nix's conflicting love of adventure and trepidation about her future should her father's quest succeed, engaging listeners' attention and imagination.
