PeekAbook: Tempest by Julie Cross

by Julie Cross
- YA fantasy
Release date: January 17, 2012

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.


Whaddya think?

I'm a sucker for time travel and heroes - so definitely adding this to my TBR pile ;-D


  1. I happened to see this book three weeks ago in the bookshop and thought it was very interesting. Strange thing it is already published in Italy and not yet in the US.

  2. I have seen the cover round about, but I never read what it was about. This does sound good and exciting. Thanks for the share!

  3. I won an arc of this from goodreads, I really enjoyed it, can't wait to see what you think of it.
