Invictus gripped my heart. Graudin's achingly beautiful prose and thoughtful exploration of time, history, and identity create a stunning story. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, and yet I wanted to savour each decadent sentence. Readers be warned, you'll want to stop time to live in this tale
Wild and gorgeous, vivid and consuming.
If the crew from Firefly somehow wound up as teenagers on the TARDIS and had to solve a Fringe-type mystery before time literally disappeared, you'd have something like Invictus
If epic adventure, fabulous settings and thoughtful worldbuilding are your things, you're going to love Invictus.
Invictus was a gripping, fast paced, action packed, funny, heart warming, rollercoaster of a read and I couldn't recommend it more highly.
...literally crafted to perfection so you'll never want to put it down! If you're a fan of The Heroes of Olympus series, or Six of Crows, basically anything where a group of kids have to come together and save the world/steal some stuff, then you're going to love this book.
...an incredible read and fans of Dr Who or time-travel in general will be hooked.
It's got twists and turns that had me gaping in amazement, as well as emotional scenes that made my heart hurt.
Invictus was a highflying knock out for Ryan. Readers will be taken on a time travelling adventure and they definitely will not want it to end.

...raises questions about how far our lives are fated and how much we shape our own destinies.
Invictus is perfect for fans of sci-fi reads and time traveller lovers.
Graudin weaves an exciting plot where time travel is just the beginning. Her characters are spunky, smart-mouthed, tormented, emotionally yearning and contemporary.
