"I have seen the future and it is Jackson Meyer! I loved Julie Cross's engrossing and engaging TEMPEST. If I could time-jump, I'd read the sequel yesterday at the very latest." --Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author of the CRUSADE series "Julie Cross's thrilling debut is brimming with excitement, romance, and intrigue. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!" --Beth Revis, New York Times-bestselling author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE "Jackson Meyer is a 19-year-old Upper East Sider with a loving and loyal girlfriend, a brilliant and funny best friend and an unexpected and exciting new talent. Jackson can suddenly "jump" back and forth in time.

Jackson discovers his father's secret life with a shadowy government agency called Tempest, and father and son become tangled with violent rival time tra
