About T.M. Nielsen

T.M. Nielsen doesn't necessarily consider herself an author. She's an every-day woman who had a story to tell. Never intending to let anyone else read it, she decided to put it all down on paper. What she ended up with is a fascinating tale filling books full of drama, adventure, action, romance, and excitement.

When asked why she decided to publish, she stated, "I want for others to be able to forget about problems in life and to lose themselves in my world... the world of the heku. While I write, I laugh, cry, grin, gasp, and my heart races. I want others to experience that too."

T.M. Nielsen is a computer tech by trade and lives with her husband and two beautiful daughters. She's the author of Amazon.com's bestselling series The Heku Series and the Dimensions Saga, along with a Heku Series spin-off book called Return of the Encala. She's been listed numerous times on Apple's Breakout Books and on Amazon.com's top 20 in Fantasy.

An added comment to my review below - Regarding remarks made earlier about Kyrin's failure to adapt quickly to the pleasant environment of Paragoy, it seems to me that her psychiatric condition was an expected result of her earlier life. Anyone who suffered that much abuse would be traumatized to the point of insanity, and it would take years before she could trust anyone or even believe the good things she sees with her own eyes. I haven't gotten to volume 2 yet so I don't know if Kyrin's condition improves then, but I agree with the author that at the end of volume 1, Kyrin's mental state should be just as it's written.

I found this book because a reader who was good enough to review one of mine also liked it. I'm glad I did and spent all day reading it. The beginning contained a little more explanatory dialogue than I like; a short prologue covering Kyrin's escape at age 11 as 'live action' rather than narration might be nice. But that's just my opinion and then I moved on the chapter 2 and found the marvelous dialog sequence between Kyrin and Alric, which does a great job of defining the characters. I did have some critiques, especially the use of modern phrases in dialog, but I don't want to detract from the overall positive response I had to the book.

This is a type of story I like, a long complex fantasy. I don't mind trilogy-length stories, especially if they release details about the characters and plot gradually. I disagree with an earlier comment about the 'lack of an ending' because this is clearly the first volume of three and I'm patient.

I enjoyed this book very much, but like, Tammy, I was puzzled about the character Kyrin, and why she failed to see the advantages of her new situation.

However, the author had good reason for Kyrin's behavior, and to appreciate the full and wonderful job this author did not only with character development and fantastic plot, you really need to read the entire trilogy.

Great job, T. M. Nielsen!

Review by: Tammy on April 01, 2012 :
I got this because it was a free book and I liked the summary.

I give this book three stars. Really I want to give it less, because I am so frustrated with the second half of the book which spiraled down pretty badly, leaving me annoyed with the book and struggling to finish, and dissatisfied when I did. But I will give it a three for the plot and first half.

Kyrin is able to shift between dimensions and is on the run from men who are hunting her for her ability to use magic and other 'crimes' that she has committed.
While on the run, she shifts into the dimension of Paragoy, a land of plenty ruled by a peaceful god, Sithias.
Because when she first entered into Paragoy she had been fatally injured, and then was healed by the priests and the king of the land, she becomes an indentured servant for one year to repay the king for saving her life.
She finds the people there are kind, and offer her friendship, but because her own god Daemionis (a cruel and petty god) is ever watching her and has installed in her a complete distrust of all people she is too fearful to trust the people of Paragoy. She feels unworthy of normal human feelings such as compassion, tenderness and love.
In the dimension that Kyrin comes from men oppress and beat the women, often forcing them into marriage, then losing interest in them when they become pregnant and casting them out.
Kyrin has vowed never to marry or have children.
Things get complicated when she begins developing romantic feelings towards the king and he towards her.
She begins to feel even more conflict because the demands of her god Daemionis for human sacrifices bumps up against the peace loving god Sithias rules for his followers.
She must fulfill a year of service to the king of paragoy to be able to leave the kingdom, but can not help but be changed by the ways of the paragoy people.

Ok what I liked, I think the first half of this book was good. I liked the idea of a multidimensional universe, and shifters between the worlds gave us (the readers as well as the author) a chance to play out the differences of morals, values, and worship practices.
But I quickly got tired of the caustic views of Kyrin regarding the issues of marriage, love and children in spite of what she sees and learns from the people of paragoy.
The book covers two and a half years of time. It seemed to go on and on after the original concept of the book ran out.
Nearly the entire second half of the book was one long and painfully (to the reader) drawn out internal struggle of kyrin.

SPOILER ALERT THIS NEXT PARAGRAPH PLEASE SKIP IT IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW

***In the end the author failed to have kyrin grow into maturity and learn her choices were wrong (in short allow 'good to win') rather she (the author) forced kryin into everything that she claimed that was wrong in the dimension that kyrin was from. The practice of Human sacrifices, forcing women into marriage, forced sex upon women, forced pregnancy.. oh wait that last one is the next book ****

*** END OF SPOILER

I believe she did that so that the series could easily continue, but it was a bad choice if you ask me.
I was so frustrated that I spent soooooooooooooo much time on a book that in the end went horribly wrong. Ugh!
I was uncomfortable with the ending or really lack of ending so I went back to smashwords to look at the sample of the next book. Judging from the sample, the series continues with more of the same. Kyrin playing ignorant, helpless, and child-like in her maturity.
Do I recommend this book? ... No, not really it was more frustrating read then it was fruitful one.

The way that one can be rought to believe that only evil exists and yet when everything about love is put infromt of you how fear can mask all good. Absolutely loved it. Cannot wait to read the 2nd one. Hopefuly soon!!!
