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

As Jackson recovers from his brush with death, he’s sur

*Spoiler free for the series*

While I enjoyed Tempest and Vortex, this one was explosive to a whole new level!

I can count on two hands the number of times I was entirely surprised by an ending. I usually catch on, at least to some extent, to what direction it's going to spin (mostly because I think up SO many theories that one of them has to be close to being right), but Timestorm is a freaking masterpiece of an ending that caught me completely off guard. It also left me in a puddle of emotional

REVIEW

Every single book in this series is so different, and yet they all work together in such a cohesive way. It's an incredible series that I think would be best suited to binge all-together without any gaps. Like one awesome sci-fi marathon.

Timestorm is my favorite in the bunch. That ending...I still need to process...so many feels, guys. So many feels. I think I literally shed tears at least twice in the book.



I'll have a full review closer to the release date, but I must say that now with

I had mixed feelings about this book, but I did enjoy it. It was fast-paced and everything was so different. There are so many twist and turns that take place and I enjoyed this series. I don't think I will re-read this series, but I did enjoy it to an extent. But may I just say, that I am not a huge fan of the covers of this book.

The whole epic ending was sweet and nice and I was satisfied. The whole time-travel thing was really easy to follow compared to other books. Although the second book

I loved Tempest. I enjoyed Vortex, but it didn't quite live up to my opinion of Tempest. Timestorm absolutely blew both of these out of the water - the characters I fell in love with are back with an action packed finale that will left my heart pounding.

Julie Cross completely and utterly broke me with Timestorm. Over and over again. There were so many moments where I just felt broken by the extremes that happen - that is the mark of true talent, since that commanding emotions is one of the hard

This review is spoiler-free for the entire Tempest trilogy


First things first, Julie Cross deserves huge props for this trilogy. Not only is it awesome as a whole (and gets better with each book), but she really goes all out with her world. You can tell how thoroughly she must have thought this book--and trilogy--through from the very start, and if this series were to be placed in any author's hands, it just would not be the same at all. Julie Cross has created a time travel that is so unique and

I'm so so glad I finished this series. But this final book was a test in patience.

The first half is very slow - it's a long, slow build up of getting to know what's going on and why/how things are changing. Then it's stories and info dumps - reading previous journal entries and being around members of the team we've never gotten to know.

Finally, the last 100 pages or so, the action gets going and big choices have to be made. As things finally wind down to the conclusion, I wasn't 100% sure how t

*Aufmachung/Qualität*
Leider wurde dieses mal das Hardcover an sich nicht bedruckt. Bei den beiden Vorgängerbänden war dies ja der Fall und ich fand das wirklich genial. Hier ist das Buch leider nur ganz schlicht grün. Der Schutzumschlag ist aber wieder im gleichen Stil gestaltet wie die anderen Bände und mir gefällt es wieder sehr gut, auch wenn ich sonst gar kein Fan von realen Menschen auf Covern bin.

Meine Meinung:

"Sturm der Zeit" von Julie Cross ist ein Finale, mit dem man so bestimmt nicht gerechnet hätte.

Die Geschichte knüpft nahtlos an den Vorgänger an, was zumindest etwas hilfreich ist. Das ändert allerdings nichts daran, dass der Mangel an Rückblenden es schier unmöglich machen, sich so richtig in die Geschichte einzufinden. Hinzu kommt, dass in den vorigen Büchern die Zeit nicht nur bereist, sondern stellenweise planlos geändert wurde. Immerhin hat man dieses Mal nicht mehr das Gefühl

It’s possible I read this trilogy without tracking two thirds of it.

Jackson is a time traveler and agent for the CIA’s Tempest division. They exist to oppose the CIA’s other time traveler division, Eyewall. Thomas, the founder of Eyewall, is working toward a utopian future where travelers are the ‘master race.’ After trying to save his girlfriend Holly from being shot, Jackson has altered the present. Instead of being killed or ending up happily ever after, Holly has joined Eyewall. She and Jack

Das Cover:
Nach Lila und Orange ist der letzte Teil der Zeitreisegeschichte von Jackson in Grün gehalten. Zu sehen ist auch hier wieder Jackson, der wie durch einen Sturm- bzw. Zeitstrudel angelaufen kommt. Zum Abschluss der Reihe ein sehr schönes und passendes Cover, das gut mit den Vorgängern harmoniert.

Die Geschichte:
Jackson Meyer ist seit seinem letzten Sprung zusammen mit seinem Vater, seiner Schwester Courtney, Holly und weiteren Zeitreisenden in der fernen Zukunft auf der ‘Insel der Außens

A pretty good conclusion to the series, it neatly (and with a definite finality) wrapped up every plot element in the trilogy. The temporal war between Tempest and Eyewall comes to a bloody and surprising conclusion and there were some interesting ramifications from the creation of a World B (largely thanks to Jackson) that surprised me on two separate occasions. Though I don’t think I ever really grasped all the aspects of time travel and alternate time line creation, the effects of there being ...more

"The course of true love never did run smooth"

Timestorm blew me away! I seriously loved every minute of this book. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next. Julie Cross really knows how to write a great story with so many great characters. I had so many feels while reading this book. It made me cry, laugh and fall in love with the characters all over again. This one compared to the first two was definitely action packed with so many great emotional scenes. O

For anyone who is an avid reader and follows series closely, you know how important the final book in a series is. It’s the book that can either make or break the whole series. It’s the book that ties up all the loose ends and makes you feel at peace in the literary world. For me, I’ve been a huge fan of the Tempest series from the moment I stumbled across a copy in my local Books-A-Million. So for me, the conclusion to this series is one that I can honestly say left me at peace and feeling like ...more

Honestly I am still debating how I want to write this review, and it's been a few days since I finished reading Timestorm. Timestorm is the final book in the Tempest series and like all final books I have mixed feelings about reading them, looking forward to reading it to see how it all ends, not wanting to read to make sure the series never ends, but also nervous about whether it will be a good read or not.

I began reading Timestorm with minimal expectations, while I loved the first book, the se

So glad to finally be done with this trilogy it's another case of a beautiful misleading covers hiding a horrible attempt at making love and time travel into an epic trilogy and failing.

WOW...that is the word that came out as my mouth as I finished reading Timestorm. I've absolutely loved the Tempest series and this was a great conclusion to this great trilogy. This whole series truly was epic. Julie Cross has truly written one of the best time travel stories I've ever come across. Being reunited with all of our beloved characters, Timestorm starts right where Vortex left off, and is truly an intense non-stop action ride until the last word of the novel and I loved every second ...more

IT'S FINISHED! Wow! What a great series. I'm so glad I was chosen for the First Reads program for Tempest. Action-packed scifi with great relationships. Loved it. Great action, so many great twists and turns, and Jackson and his love for Holly persist through it all. I even shed some tears toward the end.

The only reason I docked a star was because I had a hard time keeping track of things -- minor characters, the various timelines. But the complexity is great, too, she doesn't dumb things

I'm kind of ehhh about this book. I mean, it was definitely engaging, with an action-packed plot, but I felt like things got a tad convoluted, and there were also a few moments of awkward or unexplained writing. However, I'm glad that we got a satisfying sense of closure.

“Shit!"Holly said when our eyes fell on her bra lying at our feet. I snatched it from the ground, trying to stuff it in my pocket, but Dad was already inside the room, looking us over carefully, eyes scanning us head to toe, pausing at the bra dangling from my left hand. "Are you going to wear that?" He asked me. Holly started laughing right before me and then neither of us could stop.” 0 likes
