Publisher's Summary

"Todd grippingly conjures a what-if time-travel scenario that's unusually believable." (Kirkus)

"Time Tunnel: The Twin Towers is a wonderful piece of work with great actions scenes and a fantastic storyline that would be enjoyed by a wide audience." (Manhattan Book Review)

"The Twin Towers is a compelling, fascinating read that ends with the reader anxious for the sequel." (San Francisco Book Review)
 

September 10, 2001. Special Forces Major Kyle Mason is honeymooning at New York’s SoHo Grand Hotel with his bride, Padma Mahajan. The couple’s hotel is only a few hundred yards away from Padma’s place of work on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center’s North Tower.
 

When Padma steps out for coffee and a cigarette, a mysterious visitor enters the honeymoon suite, warning Kyle of an incomprehensible catastrophe that will result in the total destruction of the World Trade Center towers, killing his wife. The stranger enlists Kyle’s help to avert a disaster that will occur the following morning - on 9/11.
 

The first book in the Time Tunnel series, Time Tunnel: The Twin Towers, re-imagines 9/11 as a critical inflection point in time, the outcome of which the government determines must be altered in order to reverse the course of the American empire.

Slow build, fantastic conclusion

I received this book free from the author, and was asked for an honest opinion, so here it is.

The build in the first half of the book threw me off for about an hour, jumping back and forth through time, but once I figured out what was going on, I settled in and really began to enjoy the story. By the end of the story, I was completely enthralled and wanted more. 10/10 will listen again

Outstanding read

Received this book free from author. One of the best books I have read. Extraterrestrials, area 51, time travel, the twin towers. I received the audio book and I listened in two days. I couldn't put it down. A very different read. This will be a very popular series. Can't wait for the second book to go audio.

Wow! Just wow!

I was dazzled by this story, which skillfully weaves a painful day in history with believable science fiction and touching romance. The story, beautifully narrated by Natalie Naudus, fired on all cylinders and touched all emotions . Bravo! I can’t wait to read the first sequel.

A gripping adventure

This story was phenomenal. The set up gives you an in-depth background of the many characters, and you know something is about ready to happen and when it does it’s gripping. I was, and remain, invested in all the characters. And can’t wait to dive into book 2. Skillfully written with eloquence and technique. I loved it.

A Sucker For Time Travel Stories

First, I received this book from the author and was asked to provide an honest review.

I'm a sucker for time travel stories, so this was right up my alley. Time travel. Changing past events. Area 51 and conspiracy theories. Check. I enjoyed the story, and I look forward to picking up the sequel. It did start off slowly, with roughly half the book taken up with back story and character definition. I can't really decide how I feel about that. Perhaps more of that back story could have been woven into present-day, by which I mean 2008 Time Tunnel events, although that might have meant flashbacks, which would have maybe been more awkward? I can't make up my mind about that aspect. That aside, weaving actual events and UFO speculations and so forth into this story...well done. Does Richard Todd know something we don't? One wonders. The truth, as they say, is out there.

The narrator is all right. I'm not terribly picky about narrators, growing up as I did with audiobooks (before audiobooks were cool), and narrators that ranged from phenomenal to phenomenally bad. That said, there was something about this one. She has some unusual vocal mannerisms/ticks that distracted me a little. Nothing major, no huge deal. What bothered me more was the fake German accent, which bordered on sounding like a fake French accent. It just kind of grated a little, and I think doing away with it wouldn't have detracted from the storytelling in any meaningful way.

slow start but ends nicely

I like specalative fiction and this one worked for me. The set up is slow and some characters are introduced that will most likely be for other books in the series. After the build up it keeps you engaged. You like the main character and feel for them. I look forward to the other books in the series. The narrator does a good job. Give it a try if you like a good alternate fiction story that ends with you wanting to know what happens next.

This book was full of delicious surprises!

I loved the mixture of real science, real history combined with a satisfying alternate history to unfold into a delicious and fun read! It built slowly, then blasted off!! I loved it and can’t wait to read the next one.

It Took Me

It took me a while to get used to the author's style but the story was so compelling and something I'd wished for with all my heart I became invested in the story.
