The battle between the Tempest division and Eyewall comes to a shocking conclusion in this final installment of the Tempest trilogy, where the need for survival stretches the boundaries of history, both past and future, and the world Jackson once knew is a place forever marked by the detrimental effects of time travel.

As Jackson recovers from his brush with death, he’s surrounded not only by the people he loves most—his dad, Courtney, and Holly—he’s also amongst a few of the original time travelers. As he learns more about their life and how this world began, it becomes apparent that they need to put a stop to Thomas and Doctor Ludwig’s experimenting at Eyewall Headquarters. What starts out as an escape plan becomes a war between time and humanity, between freewill and peace. It’s the battle Jackson was born to fight and he’s not about to back down. Not for anything. Not for anyone.

My Review: The final book in the series ): I'm sad to see this one end, but I know Julie is coming out with another book, so at least I can look forward to that. 

So we start off with Jackson going back and forth in time. He got hurt and had a massive injury to his brain, so it lead him to travel to time and then waking up quickly in the present then jumps back into another time. After a bit he sleeps and wakes up to find out where he is and just how bad he go hurt and that he will have to things slow for a while. 

So what happens is that Holly has now joined eyewall. Holly and Jackson are enimies, which is even worse at the fact that she doesn't have any memories of him. Holly has no idea that they were ever together and happy. Which wasn't fun for me, I so wanted them to be together, but after everything was done, I could see why Julie did that.

Now the ending of the book was bittersweet for me. The ending was okay, all lose ends were tied up and all, but it didn't give me any shock factor like the past two books did. Once the book was done, I just put it on my shelf, I wasn't really shocked enough to sit there and thing about what just happened. That was my only real issue with the book, otherwise it was still a great book and love the entire series!
