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, allthat changes when Holly—the girl he altered history to save—re-enters his life. And when Eyewall, an opposing division of the CIA, emerges, Jackson and his fellow agents find themselves under attack and on the run.

At a Glance:
I loved Tempest so much! It was the first book about time traveling that I've ever read. Gave it 5 stars. I had quite big expectations about the sequel Vortex. And guess what? I loved it even more than I thought I would! It was better than Tempest. More time travel, more action, more awesome characters and more unexpected plot changes.

There wasn't a lot romance in this book. Though, there were a few scenes with Holly and Jackson that could be called "romantic".

WOW Lots of it! I LOVED THE PLOT! There were sooo many unexpected stuff going on,  few murders here and there, little bit of conspiracy. LOVED IT! 

Jackson is an awesome male character. I liked the way he though things, loved how he acted.  

Things I liked:
The scenes with when Jackson found "the room". I loved the Einstein quotes, that was awesome.
I loved when he found out new stuff about his past, and some stuff about the future.
I loved how the time travel thing is all well explained.

Would I recommend it?Yes I would. Especially if you are fan of Tempest you need to read this book asap. If you like books with time travelling, you should totally pick this one up. A great sequel!
