I read Tempest by Julie Cross as part of the 2012 Debut Authors Challenge and as part of the 2012 YA Audiobook Challenge. It’s a fun read and you can check out my review of Tempest here.
I really enjoyed the Tempest audiobook and actually received it directly from the publisher so a HUGE thank you goes out to Macmillan Audio! Since I’ve finished listening to it, I decided it was time to share the wealth and let someone else have the chance to enjoy this time travel love story (especially since its so close to Valentine’s Day!).
In case you haven’t heard of Tempest (and didn’t see my review), here is a summary of the book.
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.
Hopefully that whet your appetite!
