Waiting on Wednesday: Tempest

Tempest by Julie Cross
Pub. Date: January 3, 2012




Goodreads says, "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."

*I've been a huge fan of time travel ever since I saw Quantum Leap and Back to the Future as a kid.  I think this one sounds like the perfect combination of some Sci-Fi elements, romance and suspense.

  2. I don't want to scare you in any way, but I've already read this and it fell short for me...the romance was my favorite part. I think others will really, really like this one though! I know other reviewers have!

  8. Fantastic pick! I think this story sounds amazing. I like the idea of the time travel and trying to save someone's life. It is like the plot of a movie or TV show.
