Tempest is about a guy who can time travel
Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a rich kid with a great girlfriend. His life is normal - except for the fact that he can time travel. Although it's not normal time travel - he can go to the past, but his actions have no affect on the future. That is, until mysterious men barge into his girlfriend's dorm and shoot her. Watching his girlfriend gasp for breath, Jackson unwillingly time travels two years into the past - 2007 - but this time, he's actually there and he can't return to his present. While in 2007, Jackson must figure out who those people were, what is actually going on around him in his life, and how to get back and save his girlfriend.

The author has written an interesting and novel story, one that strains the limits of what some may think of as time travel and goes beyond what I've read anywhere else. But it is cohesive throughout. I had no difficulty connecting with all the characters as Ms. Cross develops them all nicely and brings them to life. And although there's, of course, a bit of back and forth, in time, there's also a story that is riveting in its complexity. Most of the characters are in their teens but this is not a book for children as there is intrigue, sickness, death, love, and everything else that promises to make this a great trilogy. I really can't wait for the next installment.
