Reviews for Tempest
Excellent debut novel!
"...'Tempest' started out a little slow for me, but that is not to say it was necessarily boring. Cross has a complex concept of time-travel that I have not encountered before, so it was probably a good thing that she takes time at the outset for Jackson and Adam to explain as much as they know themselves, so the reader can have a better understanding of how things essentially work - of course then she will go and blow your mind later when some things turn out to be rather different than expected! The last time-travel book I read was probably 'The Time Machine' by H.G. Wells, but it would have been a children's edition that I read as a kid. Other than that, I think the only literary exposure to time-travel I've had is with Hermione's time-turner in the third Harry Potter book. The rules of traveling through time are much different in Tempest, however, beyond the fact that no device is needed to make the jump..."
