Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Equal parts sf time-travel saga, secret-agent action thriller, and romance, this series starter takes time getting its bearings, even as dramatic scenes place its hero, Jackson, in inexplicable danger. For fans of puzzle-within-puzzle plots, this won’t be a deterrent. Son of a New York City CEO, Jackson knows he is able to step back in time and has been testing his abilities with his science-nerd friend, Adam. But Jackson’s girlfriend, Holly, is in the dark until two sinister men corner the couple and begin shooting. Shocked, Jackson is thrown far into his own past. Certain that the Holly he knows in 2009 is dead, he sets out to know an earlier version of her, while also learning that his own father may not be who he says he is. The CIA is involved, as is a doctor who engineered a terrible experiment. Significant ambiguities remain throughout the final act as Jackson makes some tough choices, though for some readers this may actually keep them panting for the sequel. Grades 9-12. --Karen Cruze

Praise for TEMPEST:

"Jackson Meyer is a 19-year-old Upper East Sider with a loving and loyal girlfriend, a brilliant and funny best friend and an unexpected and exciting new talent. Jackson can suddenly "jump" back and forth in time. Cross takes readers on a thrilling ride as Jackson struggles to harness his abilities in a desperate attempt to learn the truth about who he is and, even more importantly, who he can trust. The characters are...complex and distinct, they will work their way into readers' hearts and stay with them long after the book is finished. Equal parts adventure, romance, science fiction...readers will turn the last page and find themselves wishing they could "jump" to the future and read the sequel."--KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review
"Debut author Cross launches a trilogy with an exciting and complex page-turner about difficult choices. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer can travel in time, but he's no Doctor Who--he can only make short jumps backward, and he can't change anything. It's all harmless experimentation until his girlfriend, Holly, is shot when two gunmen attempt to kidnap him. Panicked, Jackson jumps back two years and gets stuck there. The consequences of unprepared time travel and Jackson pretending to be his 17-year-old self are amusing, but as he explores his life and pursues Holly (now his girlfriend-to-be), the already gripping story escalates. Jackson discovers his father's secret life with a shadowy government agency called Tempest, and father and son become tangled with violent rival time tra
