Vortex (Tempest #2) - Julie Cross

Vortex (Tempest #2)


  1. Thank god they recharged the cover to this bluish one. I really did not like the previous yellow one!!

  2. 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 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. Perhaps Julie meant for the story to be like this. It most certainly keeps the reader entertained and flicking pages faster than they have ever flicked pages before. All I can say is that I hope Julie will be writing away as fast as can be too because I really can’t wait for her next book!
    The book follows on nicely from Tempest with Holly and Jackson’s relationship deepening further. I was lucky enough to have the time and a chance to read both books within days of one another and I must say that if you get a chance you should definitely do it. We finally get to see a boy who actually shows his emotions! WOW! And that has got to be enough to put down your TV remotes and bowl of crisps as you let yourself in for an adventure like no other.
