A captivating time travel novel, a mixture of science and fantasy… This is Typhoon Time written by Ron Friedman. A talented writer or a scientist? The knowledge Ron Friedman has about back holes, gravity, quantum mechanics let me think he is more than a fantasy writer.
His book was published on 4 March 2018 by Word Fire Press and very fast became number 1 bestseller on Amazon. Does this tell you something?
Few words about the book
I will not reveal you the whole plot but I have to say that is a wonderful time travel adventure, of a group of people who just want to change the world. Changing a few important facts from the past will change also the course of history?
So, we have a billionaire who founded this operation. He is terminally ill and finding out that was discovered a wormhole which can bring back to 1938 he decides to make something important, to change history. Eric Sobol takes with him in this mission a group of the best scientists on a Russian Typhoon nuclear submarine, modernized and equipped with the latest and the best technology.His crew has 170 people, and Typhoon was equipped with200 nuclear warheads and 20 ballistic missiles.
But he needs help from somebody who really knows the history of that time, the history of one of the most important events who had a huge impact on the whole world d:WW2. So, Sobol invites a well-known history professor specialized on pre-WW 2, Martin Richter.
Martin Richter was a man who likes peace and was totally against nuclear weapons. History was the passion of his life and he knew every detail of that dark period so this is why Sobol needed him. How he gets finally involved in this mission… I will let you discover this.
So the Typhoon submarine jumps in time and gets in 1938, a few years before the war. Things don’t go as planned, and the mission is sabotaged and there is a trader between them. One nuclear warhead is stolen and delivered to the Germans. Hitler makes plans how to use his new toy, to make Europe his, to fall to the Third Reich. History is in danger, The whole world is in danger. This is not what they wanted, Things can be worse than before.
But I think I will let you see by your self how the storyline develops. There is science, there is fiction, there is love, adventure..everything you look for can be found in Typhoon Time.
Will those brave people succeed their mission? Will Hitler finally make his dream come true? Did he win the WW2 thanks to the modern nuclear weapon?
I will not spoil it to you, let you discover by yourself.
