Tempest - A Review

Tempest - Julie Cross (Library Thing)

Release Date: January 17, 2012


The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.

That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.

Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.

But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.

Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book! It was fast paced, and full of action. I never quite knew what to expect with each page turn. Definitely one of the things that makes a book stand out to me.

Jackson is a great character as is Adam. I took a liking to Adam and certainly hope we get to see more of him in the next two books. The rest of the characters were great in their parts as well. Although with them, it was and is hard to tell just who is a good or bad guy. I'm sure more will come out in the other books but what a great way to start a trilogy.

The end kind of made me sad and I hope what happened turns around somehow or at least maybe get more story play. Guess I will have to wait and see.

Sounds fabulous, don't you just hate when you have to "wait".
