However, after an accidental run in with Holly—the girl he altered history to save—Jackson is once again reminded of what he's lost.

My Review:

As much as I liked the first two books, I didn't quiet connect with this book. I was expecting to see more of Jackson and Holly (More cute moments). I thought the book started off really slow, mainly because not a lot of things happen in the beginning. Reading books from a guy's point-of-view is a bit different from reading a girl's point-of-view, so that might be why I couldn't connect with the book as much. The life of a secret agent is really hard from seeing all the training that Jackson has to go through. In this particular book, his journey starts off by accepting the role as a Tempest agent, his training leads him to discover new friendships, and new adventures. From seeing how much he goes through, I still couldn't believe how he was able to leave Holly, but it's no surprise that this story has its twists and turns. There were a lot of times when I would just put off from reading the book (because it wan't getting interesting), but then I would go back and keep reading (finding myself unable to put it away). With new characters and secrets, Vortex is definitely a book that is packed with action and surprises. The ending left me wanting more, so I'll be looking forward to reading the last installment of this series.
