Book Giveaway: Tempest by Julie Cross

Book One

This giveaway is now closed as of 2/2/12
I was tickled pink when the publicist, Tara, contacted me to offer one of the readers of this blog a chance to win a copy of Tempest, the first book of a series.

Time travel is the theme. Nineteen-year-old Jackson has to jump back in time to save his girlfriend, Holly, who was shot and killed. He's gone back in time before and  it was all in fun, but it's different this time. He was always able to return, but this time he's stuck. He can't get back to the present. He has to figure out some way to save Holly--and himself! The killers go back in time looking for him. He has a choice: be recruited or die. Jackson has to figure out his abilities, why the murderers want him and how it all factors into a decision that could possibly save the entire world.

Well, this book opens up a lot of questions and I want answers! If it intrigues you as well, just leave a comment telling me if you've read any other book that involves time travel. If you haven't, that's fine, just say so. Don't forget your email address so you may be contacted if you're the winner. That is all. The book will come directly from the publisher.

The giveaway is open to residents of the US and Canada only at publicist's request. It ends Thursday, February 2, 2012

My thanks to Tara and St. Martins Griffin for making this giveaway possible.

Tempest was released by St. Martins Griffin Press on January 17, 2012.

  14. I've never read anything time travel-ish, although The Time Traveller's Wife is on my tbr pile. I suppose some of Stephen King's Dark Tower stuff could be considered time (and space) travel.
    Nice giveaway!
