Publisher Description

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.

Wonderful time traveling adventure

Invictus by Ryan Graudin is science fiction novel that starts in the year 2371. Farway Gaius McCarthy is taking his final exam to receive his license to time travel. However, someone gets into the SIM and sabotages it for him. With no other alternative, Far accepts an offer to pilot his own machine (Invictus) and deal in black market goods. He assembles his team and begins his new career on the Invictus. On a mission to the Titanic, they encounter the mysterious Eliot. Eliot resembles the lady who sabotaged Far’s final SIM. Eliot is on a mission and needs assistance. They will race through time to right a wrong before it is too late.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Invictus. It was a delightful tale (who doesn’t love a good time travel tale). It contains great characters and is packed full of action. I found it be well-written and entertaining. Invictus had a fast pace with many twists and turns along the way. I liked how the characters developed over the course of the book. I started reading Invictus and stayed up very late to finish it (I wanted to know how it ended, but I also did not want it to end). I am giving Invictus 5 out of 5 stars (I loved it). There is time-travel, spaceship, a red panda (a cute little fellow), romance, humor, intrigue, and so much more. While Invictus is aimed at young adults, I believe readers of all ages will enjoy this time-traveling adventure.
