The Tempest Trilogy

Time has never been on Jackson Meyer’s side. But after he discovers his ability to move through time, after he opens a portal to a world of others like him, he can never return to a life that knows only one linear universe. He’ll never again be the guy who waited too long to tell a girl how he feels. Instead, he’s facing a war against time, a war his surrogate father has been fighting for years, a war that began hundreds of years in the future and is now circling back to the year 2009.  A war he’s pre-destined to end. Or die trying.

 

Watching his girlfriend, Holly, bleed to death and then launching himself into an alternate universe two years in the past ignites Jackson’s journey, sending him back and forth between two worlds—one in which he’s a janitor in love with a girl named Holly who isn’t supposed to meet him for two more years, and another where he’s a highly trained CIA agent working for a division that specializes in hunting down time travelers who are attempting to alter the future through unethical methods. And their damage is nothing in comparison to the horrible mess that will come from the universe Jackson, himself, created.

The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, throws lots of parties, is interested in a girl he can’t have, and oh yeah, 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.

“Cross’s zippy writing and fresh plot are an exhilarating combination.” —Publishers Weekly

The battle between the Tempest Division and Eyewall comes to a shocking conclusion in Timestormthe final installment of Julie Cross's Tempest trilogy, where the need for survival stretches the boundaries of history, both past and future, and the world Jackson Meyer once knew is a place forever marked by the detrimental effects of time travel.

As Jackson recovers from his brush with death, he’s surrounded not only by the people he loves most—his dad, Courtney, and Holly—he’s also among a few of the original time travelers. As he learns more about their lives and how this world began, it becomes apparent that they need to put a stop to Thomas and Dr. Ludwig’s experimenting at Eyewall Headquarters. What starts out as an escape plan becomes a war between time and humanity, between free will and peace. It’s the battle Jackson was born to fight and he’s not about to back down. Not for anything. Not for anyone.

The story of a 19 year-old time traveler who must jump from time to time to save his girlfriend's life.

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.
