Review: Timestorm by Julie Cross
Honestly I am still debating how I want to write this review, and it's been a few days since I finished reading Timestorm. Timestorm is the final book in the Tempest series and like all final books I have mixed feelings about reading them, looking forward to reading it to see how it all ends, not wanting to read to make sure the series never ends, but also nervous about whether it will be a good read or not.
I began reading Timestorm with minimal expectations, while I loved the first book, the second one didn't really hit the mark for me so I went into Timestorm not knowing what to expect. I wanted it to have more action and time travelling like Tempest, instead I felt the characters didn't do much. Granted they were stuck in their location with no idea of how to escape, and they do a lot of training and learn new skills that they have, but I quickly found myself getting bored with the surroundings and constant frozen state they were in. Seeing some new characters and learning about how time travel came about was interesting and I did like most of it, but when it started to go into too much detail I lost focus a bit.
There were parts of Timestorm that I did like, but I admit to struggling through most of it. I still liked the characters, it was just the environment they were in. As Timestorm neared the end however, I did begin to enjoy it, and also cried a lot over some of the things that happened. The ending of Timestorm wasn't what I expected, but I think it worked well with the story as a whole. I am disappointed that I didn't enjoy Timestorm as much as what I wanted to though.
