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.
Watch this video trailer for Tempest, the new novel by Julie Cross.
Listen to this audiobook excerpt from Julie Cross' young adult novel Tempest, narrated by Matthew Brown. 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.
