After Reading: VORTEX by Julie Cross
Jackson Meyer has thrown himself into his role as an agent for Tempest, the shadowy division of the CIA that handles all time-travel-related threats. Despite his heartbreak at losing the love of his life, Jackson has proved himself to be an excellent agent. However, after an accidental run in with Holly—the girl he altered history to save—Jackson is once again reminded of what he's lost. And when Eyewall, an opposing division of the CIA, emerges, Jackson and his fellow agents not only find themselves under attack, but Jackson begins to discover that the world around him has changed and someone knows about his erased relationship with Holly, putting both their lives at risk all over again. (GoodReads)
Have I mentioned that I love this series? Yeah, totally digging this one! (My review of Tempest, the first book.) So, now we're dealing with Jackson (who is, clearly, swoon-worthy, let's just be honest about it) and his attempts to fit together everything he's changed through messing with timelines. It's fast-paced, has a few new characters who rock, though I totally missed Adam and the normal Holly... I did find myself getting a little tripped up by some of the technical aspects of the changes/timelines/abilities that were going on and I'm not 100% sure I fully understand it all, though I was able to follow along with the story no problem. The ending left me reeling and I swear waiting until 2014 to catch the rest of this is going to be a long wait!
Who's read this one? Did you like it? How about the older characters--this is classic New Adult--what did you think?
And, if you're at all interested in helping me out with my blog tour (May 13-31st), let me know? Pretty please with sugar on top? :)
