Julie Cross's debut novel will grab you from the very first page. Jackson's narration is quick and witty, and he's very engaging. His easy-going nature makes him likable and experiments in time travel are fascinating, but the story really gets going when Holly is shot in 2009 and Jackson finds himself stuck in 2007. He is forced to examine the consequences of his every jump in time and dig into his family's secrets. What he discovers—trained guards shadowing him throughout his childhood, genetic testing, and a struggle between two forces that spans an inestimable number of years—will shock him, and put him in danger. At the same time, Jackson strives to get close to 007 Holly in an attempt to prevent her death in 2009, and he struggles with the guilt he feels for being a part of her life and putting her in so much danger. Cross does an excellent job at building their relationship in both time periods and creating little differences between 007 Holly and 009 Holly. This thrilling book has lots of action, mind-bending plot twists, and high stakes. The ending may be hard to swallow for some readers, but thankfully we still have two more books to look forward to in what's sure to be an outstanding trilogy.
Cover Comments: I am love with this cover! It's done by the same person who did the Hush, Hush cover, and it's so striking. I like the way the two figure are falling and trying to reach out to each other. Love it!
