Fans of Cross’ debut novel, Tempest, will love returning to the time-jumping adventures of Jackson Meyer. In this trilogy second, the exciting story picks up almost where it left off, so newcomers may be a bit lost at first. Expect a thrill a minute as Jackson discovers he’s even more special than he initially thought.
To save his girlfriend’s life, Jackson Meyer has completely erased her from his own world, thanks to his time-jumping abilities. Though he now works for a clandestine group in the CIA, Holly is never far from his thoughts. When his latest assignment takes him back home to New York City, running into Holly is almost guaranteed. But given that in this reality they’ve never met, she shouldn’t know him at all, right? Oh, and then there’s the niggling questions about his growing time-travel powers, and just who he can trust.
