"The Time Traveller's Wife" meets "The Matrix" - an action-packed, roller-coaster of a ride, filled with drama, intrigue and romance in equal proportions. "The Tempest" is a mind-blowing debut novel that will keep you guessing at every turn. Jackson Meyer is hiding a secret. He can time-travel. But he doesn't know how he does it, how to control it or what it means. When Jackson, and his girlfriend Holly, find themselves in fatal danger, Jackson panics and catapults himself two years into his past, further than he's ever managed before, and this time he can't find a way back to the future. All the rules of time-travel he's experienced so far have been broken and Jackson has no choice but to pretend to be his younger self whilst he figures out a solution. Jackson is tearing himself apart with guilt and frustration, wondering if Holly survived. He's also become the target of a enemy force he cannot even begin to comprehend and it seems even his dad is lying to him. Jackson is racing against time to save the girl he loves, discover the truth about his family and, most importantly, understand why he can time travel and who wants him dead.

Spoiler alert!Romance/fantasy is not usually my thing, but I decided to take a chance on this book, and I was glad I did. Julie Cross does an outstanding job of creating this story, and it certainly was hard to put down. The characters felt real, like people I could feel for and root for. The suspen...
W literaturze podróżowanie w czasie pojawia się dosyć często. Chociaż sama idea jest ciekawa to niestety często fabuła, w którą to podróżowanie jest wplecione, pozostawia wiele do życzenia. Trafiają się czasem perełki, ale niestety "Burza" nie może się do nich zaliczać. Jest to książka, na której si...
Tempest kind of took me by surprise. In a good way. Because after spotting a whole heap of 1* for this book on Goodreads, and then noticing that some of those belonged to bloggers I trust to steer me right in my reading material, I almost turned away. However, when I spotted a giveaway for it over a...
