Julie Cross's Vortex is the thrilling second installment of the Tempest series, in which the world hangs in the balance as a lovelorn Jackson must choose who to save

Jackson Meyer has thrown himself into his role as an agent for Tempest, the shadowy division of the CIA that handles all time-travel-related threats. Despite his heartbreak at losing the love of his life, Jackson has proved himself to be an excellent agent. However, after an accidental run in with Holly—the girl he altered history to save—Jackson is once again reminded of what he's lost. And when Eyewall, an opposing division of the CIA, emerges, Jackson and his fellow agents not only find themselves under attack, but Jackson begins to discover that the world around him has changed and someone knows about his erased relationship with Holly, putting both their lives at risk all over again.



Every now and then, I go into the bookstore without having any clue of what I am looking for. A few months ago, this is exactly what I did. I walked into the local Books A Million and started looking through books and just finding my happy place. (Bookstores relax me…there is just something to calming about them.)
I came across a book by an author I hadn’t heard of, Julie Cross. This book was called Tempest. At first, I thought of Shakespeare, but then reminded myself that that was called The Tempest. I read the back of the book and was instantly drawn into the world of Jackson Meyer. I bought the book, went home, and instantly started reading it. I couldn’t put it down.
Flash forward into the next year and after months of waiting, book two finally came out. Vortex is everything I had hoped for….and more.

I absolutely loved this book! Tempest was incredible and Vortex can only be described as even better. The concept of this story is unlike anything I have ever read before. You are always on the edge of your seat, wondering what is going to happen next. Jackson is a character you can’t help but like. When you read this book, you are in for a for shocks and surprises. (Don’t worry – no spoilers!) You will see a new side to Jackson and Holly and even meet a few new characters that you are bound to either love or hate. Julie Cross has some serious talent when it comes to writing and keeping her readers wanting more. There is nothing about this series that I don’t like and I promise, if you read it, you’ll feel the same.
Book #3 in the series comes out early 2014. (I wish it were sooner!)
Five out of five stars.
