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.
‘Vortex’ is a successfully continuation of ‘Tempest’. The story is thrilling and every time you ask yourself, how are the characters going to react to the situations? And what happens next? Also it’s pretty confusing. In the meantime I wasn’t able to follow what is world A, B or C etc. The story builds perfectly on the first book and presupposes that you remember what did happen in this one. Furthermore I like that Jackson acts more like an adult. But he is still funny, especially in connection with Kendrick and Stewart. I hope ‘Timestorm’ will be as good as the first two books and I’m looking forward reading it :)
