Review

Filled with descriptive passages and edge of your seat action, this story will knock you off your feet. If that isn't enough, then the stunning artwork depicting some of the main characters is sure to grab you. I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a wild page turning adventure,  filled with elements that will make your imagination tingle. I can hardly wait to see how this story ends. But for now I plan on enjoying the ride.

If you have a tween or are a kid at heart, there is a great emotional pull to the characters in here and a lot of fun with illustrations to match. I will be diving into the continuation very soon to see what becomes of Tommy in the Province in When Tommy Adams Burned The World: Part 2, The Stone Boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, a good and original story July 18, 2011

Just bought the first part, and read all the way through it in one, exhilirating session! The story plot is told in other reviews, so I won't do that again here. What you'll find is a tale geared towards tweens. It has a lot of fantasy and some light horror, cemented in a high fun-factor. Tommy is as likeable a hero as mr. Fate is a complex villain. Nies is able to convey much of the personality through dialogue, which I think would translate very well to the big screen. There are some genuine original ideas in there, and it takes it's audience seriously. It comes with some nice illustrations, too. Tweens may be it's target audience, but there's fun to be had for us adults to. And there's a valuable life lesson in there: never negotiate a contract with a demon. Who knew?
Tommy Adams is a fast paced rollercoaster ride of a story, and allthough it's unclear how the story will unfold, I for one can't wait to get my hands on the next part!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun at a great pace July 13, 2011

Some villains aspire to take over the world, some have a vendetta, and then there are those who have a job to keep. Meet Mr. Fate, who is just the businessman you never want to show up on your doorstep to collect your soul. After he murders Tommy Adam's parents, he becomes his new guardian, and he is anything but the perfect father figure.

If you ever needed an excuse to rebel against your guardians, Tommy Adams is it. Armed with his own blood that is his magic power, this first part to the series starts off at high speed and keeps going. For Tommy's fourteenth birthday is to include running for his life from a ghoul and a gift from Mr. Fate, which will include a Codex and being dropped out of a tree into the Province. Once there, he will meet a girl who has no problem kicking him around, and that is just the start to his welcoming, for he still has to survive the rest of his birthday. At some point during all that, just maybe he can get his gift to stop hating him for dropping it too.

If you have a tween or are a kid at heart, there is a great emotional pull to the characters in here and a lot of fun with illustrations to match. I will be diving into the continuation very soon to see what becomes of Tommy in the Province in When Tommy Adams Burned The World: Part 2, The Stone Boy.

When Tommy Adams Burned the World Part 1: Into The Province by Timothy Nies, is a brilliant cocktail of magic, mayhem and some very unique and vibrant characters. From the very beginning this epic tale pulls you into a very surreal world, one that can only be dreamed of.

Meet Mr. Fate, an unusual man with a strange job. He follows up on contracts. He is a soul collector and is coming to collect the soul of a baby boy named Tommy Adams, whose parents beg to be spared. But of course this is not possible and Tommy Adams now has a very different future from the one his parents wanted for him. He now belongs to Mr. Fate, his new guardian.

Mr. Fate is a little cruel and has a nasty sense of humor, he kills Tommy's parents after he gets what he wants. Then he raises the boy under clauses in a very bizarre contract. Every year, Tommy must face new challenges, such as "traveling with a circus run by a sociopath" without help from anyone, including Mr. Fate.

Thirteen years of this and Tommy has grown into a strong and powerful young boy, ready to face what challenges come next. This year it seems he is to apprentice with an Alchemist, the very last Alchemist to be exact. Armed with only a strange piece of equipment called a Mnemonic Codex, Mr. Fate sends Tommy to a different world, one that Tommy might not be prepared for.

Filled with descriptive passages and edge of your seat action, this story will knock you off your feet. If that isn't enough, then the stunning artwork depicting some of the main characters is sure to to grab you. I recommend this story to anyone who is looking for a wild page turning adventure, filled with elements that will make your imagination tingle. I can hardly wait to see how this story ends. But for now I plan on enjoying the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bite-Sized Piece of Fantastic Storytelling! July 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
When Tommy Adams Burned the World is part one in a six-part series of short stories by Timothy Nies. In the Prologue, we are introduced to Mr. Fate. His job, I think, is to collect souls. Mr. Fate, all though evil, was a wickedly delcious character to read. He is arrogant, snobbish. Mr. Fate, comes to collect a new soul, an infant. Turns out, that infant is his great-nephew, Tommy. When Mr. Fate learns this, his cool facade drops. But he is clearly not the man in charge and once he is reminded of that, he completes his job.

Once the story begins, we are re-introduced to Tommy Adams, on his fourteenth birthday. A little backstory tells us that he has not had an easy road. As it happens, when Mr. Fate took Tommy from his parents, he allowed them to bargain for Tommy's upbringing. Each year of his life, a new clause is enacted on his birthday. On his fourteenth birthday, the clause states that he will receive the finest education man or demon can offer. Happy to enact the clause, Mr. Fate sends Tommy on his way, Into the Province. Once in the Province, Tommy quickly encounters amazing new characters. As the story ends, Tommy has realized he must think, and move, fast if he is going to survive in the Province.

My first thought was...this is a really cool concept. Part One was a perfect, bite-sized nugget of fantastic storytelling. At only 55 pages, I zoomed through the story in no time. Tommy is an engaging young boy who is easy to root for. I was definitely left wanting for more.
