Tempest by Julie Cross

ISBN: 9780330543804

Pages: 418

Time will tear them apart . . . 

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-traveller.  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.

Normally, I’m not really a fan of time travel books, but I absolutely loved reading Tempest by Julie Cross, as even though it is classed as science fiction, it’s not too unbelievable or unrealistic. My favourite character was Jackson Meyer, mainly because of his stubbornness, determination and also his curiosity. Some of my favourites parts of Tempest were when Jackson and his friend, Adam, were doing time travel tests, they were not only extremely well written and explained, but also quite entertaining. I really like the cover of Tempest, it portrays the story within well and I love the crystals! I also love the byline, “Time will tear them apart” because it’s meaning changes throughout the book as you are reading it. I would definitely recommend Tempest!
