Hot off the press—Jackson Meyer is back in action in Julie Cross’ latest novel, Vortex, which just came out in January 2013. Vortex picks up where Tempest left off, charging straight into the storyline without losing any time going over past details.
I admit I was a little lost when I first started reading, having trouble recalling the interactions and backgrounds of certain characters in Tempest. But if you keep reading through the first few chapters, the story will return to your memory and the plot line will pull you in, keeping you reading well into the night. So if you haven’t read Tempest, or just have trouble remembering some of the characters, I recommend reading Tempest first.
Tempest is a supernatural tale involving a nineteen-year-old college student named Jackson, who's your average guy... except for the fact that he can time travel. After a violent fight with some bad guys that resulted in his girlfriend, Holly, getting fatally shot, Jackson travels two years into the past, and gets stuck in 2007. While Jackson's stuck in the past, he falls in love with Holly all over again, tries to better understand his time-traveling abilities, finds out his dad is a spy, and gets chased by the bad guys who turn out to be "Enemies of Time." Jackson must decide how far he'll go to save Holly, and possibly even the world.
Both books feature engaging characters, lots of action and fight scenes, menacing bad guys, and time travel. Add in a layer of romance, friendship, and camaraderie and you’ve got yourself a winner! Want to know what happens to Jackson and Holly? Request the books today!
