Jackson Meyer is hiding a secret. He can time-travel. But he doesn't know how he does it, how to control it or what it means. When Jackson, and his girlfriend Holly, find themselves in fatal danger, Jackson panics and catapaults himself two years into his past, further than he's ever managed before, and this time he can't find a way back to the future. All the rules of time-travel he's experienced so far have been broken and Jackson has no choice but to pretend to be his younger self whilst he figures out a solution. Jackson is tearing himself apart with guilt and frustration, wondering if Holly survived. He's also become the target of an unknown enemy force and it seems even his dad is lying to him. Jackson is racing against time to save the girl he loves, but to do that he must first discover the truth about his family and himself. And stay alive.
This Review is actually more about the second book (they don't sell it yet) although this book is absolutely great as well. Julie Cross is a brilliant author! So I've got to admit I love to eat! Who doesn't? I have to be doing something and that something is generally eating. However Julie's scrumptious book Vortex has stopped from eating snacks and has left me devouring the pages of her book. It is an utterly delicious and definitely a gourmet book. The book follows Jackson as he comes across new characters and challenges in his new life as a CIA. Julie managed to do what seems the impossible for many authors in creating a whole new world within each readers mind and her detailed descriptions leave you believing that time travel is possible. My only criticism is that some points and the sudden plot turns and excitement are hard to really grasp and get your head around. It such a complex exciting and unpredictable world but once you understand, everything makes much clearer sense.
