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.

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...
