Time Tunnel: The Twin Towers
Another book about 9-11? Yes. Another book about aliens? Yes. However, this is a book unlike many you’ve probably read before. In Richard Todd’s first novel of the Time Tunnel series, The Time Tunnel: Twin Towers, we meet Kyle and Padma during their honeymoon in Soho. After a brief glimpse into their married life, we then follow them in their respective lives, before knowing each other. Kyle always excelled in whatever he chose to do and was a daredevil, which proves to be no surprise when he elects to advance from the military into the Special Ops division. Padma is the daughter of two higher caste Indian parents, who truly want the best for their child, but don’t always think of her feelings in the process. Padma excels at everything in her life as well, and goes into the business world and lands a job at none other than the Twin Towers.
Interspersed between their stories is a flashback to 1947, when pieces of an assumed UFO are found on a ranch in New Mexico, as well as the remains of what appears to be an extraterrestrial being. Area 51 is explored, and we hear one author’s version of what could be contained in the famous compound.
Area 51 is the central base between the events in 1947 and events that occur after September 11, 2001, when many innocent people lost their lives because of brutal terrorists. After losing his wife, Padma, thanks to the terrorists, Kyle is distraught and unrecognizable. Seven years later, he is brought into the lives of the military personnel in Area 51 and is recruited to help change events of the past to a more positive outcome and to save his wife in the process.
Todd wrote a story that obviously has parts that are truly futuristic, but other parts that ring all-too-familiar to some readers. The relationships in this story make it very appealing to readers, as most can easily relate to the feelings of loving your best friend, as well as loving those you have no choice but to love. The idea of having to prove yourself to others to be taken seriously and utilizing second chances are other themes that are familiar to readers.
Twin Towers is recommended to those who enjoy pure action with romance, aliens, vengeance, and having the ability to change the past. In this first book of the Time Tunnel series, we are left with a cliffhanger, so hurry and finish this one to continue on to Time Tunnel: The Empire.
