Julie Cross's Vortex is the thrilling second installment of the Tempest series, in which the world hangs in the balance as a lovelorn Jackson must choose whom to save. 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.

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.
"not as good as book 1"
In Julie Cross' Tempest, the year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy: he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies - nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors - it’s just harmless fun. That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot.
"Sorry, I was not impressed."
I've gotten used to the dead parents face. I've gotten used to living with my gymnastics coach. I've even adjusted to sharing a bathroom with his way-too-hot son. Dealing with boys is not something that's made it onto my list of experiences as of yet. But here I am, doing it. And something about Jordan - being around him, talking to him, thinking about him - makes me feel like I can finally breathe again.
Året er 2009. Jackson er en normal fyr på 19 år, går på college og har kæreste... og så har han evnen til at rejse tilbage i tiden. Men intet ændrer sig i nutiden efter hans spring - det er bare harmløs sjov. Lige indtil den dag fremmede overfalder Jackson, og hans kæreste Holly bliver skudt. I panik, springer Jackson to år tilbage i tiden, men det er ikke ligesom hans tidligere spring. Han kan ikke komme tilbage til nutiden, han sidder fast i år 2007.
Jackson Meyer hält sich für einen ganz normalen Neunzehnjährigen, bis er zufällig feststellt: Er kann für ein paar Stunden in der Zeit zurückreisen...
