Mixed May – Julie Cross – Tempest

I have always enjoyed time travel and time slip novels but these have generally been more historical fiction than sci-fi or speculative. In this way, Tempest is different, it set in 2009 and is about 19 year old Jackson, who realises he can time jump a short way into the past. He doesn’t seem to have to worry about time continuums etc. (the Dr Who type stuff) and together with one of his mates, just sees it as a fun experiment. However, the fun stops when he is faced with his girlfriend’s death. So he goes back in time in hope of stopping it.  As the story progresses various government plots are uncovered and it appears that there is more to Jackson’s ability than harmless fun.  This is the first in a trilogy…. I am awaiting a copy of the second – Vortex from my local library.  Whilst it deals with big ideas it is essentially a fun read.
