Reading Level:Young Adult
Publisher:St. Martin's Griffin
First in Tempest series
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 seriously adored this book. It was amazing. It wasn't really what I was expecting at all. I read it in basically one day and then was sad when it was over.
It's rare when a book is from the guys perspective. I love it. It's a nice change. Jackson is the love of my life. He's so adorable and sweet. If it was me I would have been freaking out. He handled everything so well. He learned that his whole life was a lie and didn't even melt down. This is really romance centered which I love. Jackson was willing to do anything to keep Holly safe. She was what mattered most. That's adorable. Their so cute together. Of course that was my favorite part.
Who doesn't love time travel. I think that is such a cool concept. The author did a really good job with it. The plot was great. It was incredibly fast paced making this difficult to put down. The characters were great though I think it would have been cool if the secondary characters played a bigger part. Overall I really enjoyed this. The wait for the sequel is gonna be killer :(. I highly recommend this. I think everyone in the world should read it and love it so that we can talk about it :). 5/5 stars
