Mini Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

Today I'm doing something a little different to get a book I recently read, and loved, out on your radar!

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.

Mini Review: Tempest is the ultimate time travel book. Everything about the time travel in Tempest is unique to this book. Yet, the time travel aspect of the book left me with so many questions. I devoured everything there was to know about time travel. I can't wait for more information to be revealed in later books.

In Tempest we have a male narrator! Yes, a male narrator! I love how this is becoming more common these days. To me Jackson had a distinctly male narration. It probably helped that he was somewhat of a sweet heart! 

That ending was quite the ending. I'm not going to say any more but it was a little hard to read, it was so emotional and sad.

Tempest is a book you need to look out for! I'm sure that it will surprise you, just like it surprised me!
