As some of you may know I didn't love Tempest, the first book in the series, but I was very impressed and engrossed when it came to listening to the audiobook for Vortex. The story was pretty intense and the growing twists to the plot were intriguing and had me listening for hours a day to see where this story would go. And boy does it end with a surprise!

As with the first book Jackson is completely longing for and obsessed with Holly. He is constantly thinking about her, reminded of her and only wants her. What I loved about this story is the variety of new characters that are brought in and getting to know Jackson's character more on a deeper level. I like his family's background and some of the time traveling he gets to do regarding the mystery to discover more about the Enemies of Time. 

The audiobook,  Narrated By Matthew Brown  and a Length: 12 hrs and 27 mins(Macmillan Audio )
really flew by. Even though Jackson continually obsesses about Holly, the revolving stories of his CIA training and his family really get complicated and more complex as the series continues.
