5-Star Editorial Reviews:
"Inspiring, entertaining, and downright exhilarating! A fantastic novel combining adventure, fantasy, and time travel. The writing is beautiful with a metaphysical and metaphorical feel that reminds me of something I have known and forgotten, of the sense of being connected to something bigger than myself."--Romuald Dzemo, Readers' Favorite Reviewer
"Wow! Just...Wow! Portals in Time is far and away one of the most original, interesting, and surreal thriller/suspense/sci-fi/fantasy/action fiction novels I've ever read (and I read a lot!). The writing was very literary (beautiful prose)! Teaches wonderful life lessons in an organic, spiritual way. Very highly recommend!!"-- Gillian Hancock, 5-Stars, Indie Book Reviewers
"Profound and Visionary, unique depth and complexity of characters and even for a science-fiction/fantasy/metaphysical adventure the rules went out the window. Writing is very strong and the plot is compelling and intelligent. Kept me turning the pages late into the night!" --Sam Ryan, Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
"Teressi has the gift of storytelling, awakening a deep spiritual longing in the hearts of readers. The story is told in fine prose and in a captivating tone. It takes you to dreamland and makes you feel as if you belong to a spiritual world of endless possibilities."--Ruffina Roserio, Readers' Favorite Reviewer
"The whole book felt almost like one long poetic dream! It was a lot of fun and really different. A thriller, suspense, fantasy, action, drama, spiritual, philosophical, metaphysical, literary feat! I didn't want to stop reading until I finished the whole thing." -- Brenda Maxwell, Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
"Trust me when I say you've never read anything like this before! If you like multi-faceted, thrilling, fantasy fiction that is philosophical, enlightening, and fun to read, you'll love this one. It pushes the boundaries of typical literature and is a great addition to the field." -- Claire Middleton, Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
"Beautiful writing, great action, fun characters, unique plot! An amazing, eye-opening read exploring different aspects of humanity. Richly layered with meaning, wisdom, philosophy, and spirituality. An inspiring, engrossing novel that stays with you long after you are done." -- Steph Coleman, Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
"This book was amazing...provocative, thrilling, suspenseful, intelligent, spiritual, and philosophical! I was drawn into Teressi's strange new world and meet a whole cast of characters unlike any I've met before. Sci-fi with a beautifully poetic nature that is also filled with unexpected drama." -- Essie Harmon, Goodreads; Barnes & Noble; Indie Book Reviewers
The book was hard to put down. I spent hours at a time reading it. Covers society, spirituality, and the mentality of a society weaving it all with quantum physics, and it's so well done I never lost track of the storyline. It made me think about my own existence and belief system." -- Literary Titan

The story begins with ten volunteers, the Grippland Eye of Time Exploration Team, who are former prisoners sent via time-travel to discover the Secret of Un-Old-Age. Grippland High Command rules with an iron fist, using thousands of laws, censorship, and intense surveillance. The Gripps Exploration Team's mission is to save their civilization and find a cure for the citizens who are aging prematurely.
The Gripps arrive in another dimension, a mysterious land called Acronos filled with natural beauty and harmony. They encounter many intelligent and unusual life-forms and are shocked by nature's amazing awareness. They are greeted by the Guardians of Acronos, two highly-evolved time-travelers who attempt to share the wisdom of The Seven Harmonies. The Gripps experience one surprising event after another in which time changes, twists and turns until they begin to realize that their thoughts are creating their reality and reality is mirroring who they are and revealing their true nature.
There are few times in our lives when we can become lost in a fantasy that can affect our lives in such a meaningful and positive way. You will not forget the characters and the wonder of nature in this story of love, patience, understanding, and redemption that will enhance your life and live in your heart.
"Portals in Time is a brilliant, philosophical New Age novel in which the qualities of two centuries-old classics, Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, are melded into a dynamic futuristic tale. Surpassing dystopian and utopian novels, it is an inspiring spiritual journey that delves into metaphysics and the fundamentals of reality. The time-traveling aspect of the story has the capricious effect of going "down the rabbit hole," and is an enthralling part of the adventure from the first chapter to the last."--Susan Sewell, Readers' Favorite Reviewer
"The setting is nothing like I have ever read before, but curiously, it does remind me of something I have known and forgotten, of the sense of being connected to something bigger than myself. Portals in Time: The Quest for Un-Old-Age wakes readers up and provokes in them a reflection on the possibilities of life." --Romuald Dzemo, 5-Stars, Readers' Favorite Reviewer
