    1 thought on “The Invasion of Tork”

    1. Wow, I thought I knew the definition of slow-burn, but I guess I was mistaken, because this story just took that concept to new heights.It also had an air of the enemies to lovers trope as well, but that was mostly from Adam's perspective. Since Tork was homeless, Adam considered him as part of "the great unwashed" and barely even human when the story first began.But Tork's take on the arrogant and abrasive Adam, even from the start, was quite different. Tork never took Adam's asshat behavior an [...]

    2. I don't expect much out of shorts because usually, they don't offer enough room to contemplate about the story or the characters. But this is one of those exemptions.The Invasion of Tork is a thought-provoking book -- full of melancholy but well-timed and intelligently written.Like a sage with profound knowledge, this book shares with you a part of life most of us have not and hopefully will not experience. Nevertheless, this perfectly makes you understand what it's like to live everyday of your [...]

    3. This one's a tearjerker and a hopebuilder. I've come to expect no less from Claire and Al's stories, which always evoke all the feels. Tork is a beautiful young man with green hair who's crazy smart and kind and polite. And also homeless, constrained by survival rules of his own creation. Being in Tork's head was scary and exhilarating and sad, so fucking sad. I wanted to know much more about him, including how he ended up on the streets in the first place. It's not that hard to fill in the blan [...]

    4. *4.5 stars*SoI was in a good mood yesterday and wanted something short to read and heyere is a Stewart-Davis book I haven't read! Nice and light YA shortie it seemsEverything is good and Ele is a happy girl.Thirty minutes laterThis is not going according to planBecause Tork's reality and the fact that this is not just fiction, but real life for so many homeless kids, punched me in the gut. Tork is brilliant and a good, good boy. He has rules that help him survive life in the streets."Rule: no ly [...]

    5. It was nothing like I expected.An unexpected pair, this one. A kind boy whose copying mechanisms have failed with a big headed and frivolous flirt? I was curious as how the authors would deal with this situation, but surprisingly, Tork also has a wicked streak, whereas Adam is a softie inside. Things are not what the look like at first.The plot is adorable, the dancing around each other, the coming to terms with themselves, and the subtle changing so as to be deserving of what they both need. It [...]

    6. This is the story of Tork. A homeless young man who has been down on his luck. He struggles with his past, he is lost and sad, but he still has some fight left in him. One very ordinary and gloomy December day he ends up at the local homeless shelter and meets no other but the one and only Adam.And then… HOPE happens. :)"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me Anything can happ [...]

    7. Wow Just wow!!Such a powerfull story about hope!!Tork, sweet Tork has been living the streets for a year. Living by his own made rules to survive. He was so sweet, I just wanted to jump in and cuddle him.Adam, a volunteer at the homeless shelter meets Tork. He’s arrogant and rude to him and thinks as himself so much more than Tork. Tork is homeless, yes, but he’s also very smart is very amused by the arrogance of Adam.Tork keeps coming to the shelter for food packages and through their inter [...]

    8. Dear Al Stewart and Claire Davis:You made me cry.I don't have the stars or the words to do this review justice. If I could give it twenty stars I would, because five? That's just not enough.This story was real, heart wrenching, brilliant, endearing, sweet, tough, and beautiful. The same can be said of Tork, our main character who captured my heart from the first paragraph and wouldn't let it go. Exotic, beautiful, green-haired Tork has been living on the streets for over a year. He has a set of [...]

    9. ~ 4.5 stars ~A very emotional story that deals with the heavy topic of homelessness and all that comes with it when someone finds themselves in this situation and can't find their way out on their own. Still, this story ends on a hopeful note. Not only for a new chance at life but also for a love between two young men so utterly different.Tork broke my heart and I just wanted him to be happy and safe. But at the same time, I was also proud of him.I'm not sure if it's me or the wonderful writing [...]

    10. These two authors excel at giving us men who are a bit atypical, guys whose thoughts and emotions run outside the usual rails. In this book we meet Tork, a young man who has been living on the street for a while. He's sleeping in hidden places like under a stairwell, scrounging in dumpsters, and barely surviving. He has a set of rules he uses to give shape to his days, and he's brilliant, but he's haunted by his past and mistakes, and on the edge of giving up. And then Adam, who is a wonderfully [...]

    11. Oh book, you are beautiful!To read about someone like Tork is heartbreaking.To read about someone like Tork written LIKE THAT? It's a killer!!The feelings of sadness and loneliness are so strong that it can almost choke you.It's a short book, but it does, in less than 50 pages, what many can't with a lot more words.Book #2 is a must read when you finish this one, so make sure you have it and you're in for a treat of beauty, sadness and a wonderful HEA.Thank you Nick for a lovely gift and a great [...]

    12. I really enjoyed this story! Tork just broke my heart with his rules and self harm. And Adam took him a while to learn how to be a human being. But the journey was something they both needed and it was worth it. I'm glad book 2 is out now :)

    13. *** 3 Rules are Meant to Be Broken Stars *** I am definitely in the minority here but this book was just ok for me. I know this book has a greater meaning to it, but the story itself just fell flat for me.Tork is a 22 year old homeless man. He is trying to survive life on the streets. In his mind, he has created all the rules he must go by to survive.Rule: no touchingRule: don't bring attention to yourselfRule: no lying downRule: no deep sleepingand the biggest rule of all.Rule: pain is as pure [...]

    14. 4stars! My second book by this author and it was just as lovely as "Billie Jean".This story was the total opposite it definitely had a more serious tone bit just as sweet. Adam is volunteering at a shelter just for appearances sake his good looking and he knows it. A total manwhore, yup, in other words a jerk and at first I didn't like him at all. He meets Tork, his homeless and goes to get some food at the shelter where Adam, is volunteering. They meet and don't like each other even when they f [...]

    15. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.The authors of this story made me weep. Bastards! But they also made me smile, so they are forgiven.The Invasion of Tork is wonderful. It is beautifully written, full of genuine emotion and left me hopeful and in love with Tork and maybe even Adam a little. It is unique and clever and, despite the crying, is a fun read.I absolutely LOVE this story and will be adding it along side my seasonal Dickens reading. Adam and Ebenezer can hang out.Oh, and there is also som [...]

    16. 5 StarsWell, what can I say?That was really good for a short story! I wish for a full-length version of this. I want to see more of Adam, not because I like him but to ensure that he will not hurt my dear Tork! <3But they are a very cute couple!~~~~ <3 I WANT MORE

    17. Beautiful book. I wasn’t sure about Adam at first, but he was so over the top rude I totally found it charming, just like Tork did.And I loved the origami.

    18. Everyone loves this book. I'm no different. It was such a heartbreaking yet beautifully happy story. The writing is gorgeous! It takes such talent to write a character as abhorrent as Adam only to make him sweet and vulnerable at the end. Beautiful!!

    19. July 2015 - It's only been six weeks and I've already reread this!-------I adored this! I can't believe I'd never heard of this author duo until this years Love is an Open Road event.Tork is a homeless boy, living by his set of rules in order to survive on the street and to protect him from more emotional pain. Adam is the good-looking, conceited boy who is very reluctantly volunteering at the homeless shelter (he is too good for all of them!) Through little actions Tork starts to bring Adam dow [...]

    20. The blurb lured me into thinking this was going to be a light, fun book, with nothing too serious to deviate me from a promising fun-time. But the actual story turned out to be quite a surprise.I LOVED Adam and Tork, they were so adorable. The story opened my eyes to so many new things, about the homeless people and the food banks. I really hadn't known any such thing existed.It was a sweetly pleasant read, and I was hooked so much, that I didn't want to post a review until after I was done with [...]

    21. Uf, no sé ni qué decir, maravillosa sorpresa que me he encontrado en forma de freebie.Adam me ha encantado pero es que Tork, Tork es maravilloso ❤️

    22. Five mistletoes!The Invasion of Tork isn't your typical Christmas story with family dinners, presents and laughter. Instead, you get a little Christmas miracle.The writers' characters are always believable. It's easy to see Tork walking the streets, alone, looking for shelter, a place to belong to. Same with the romance, it feels real and heartfelt, no gimmicks. What Al Stewart brings to this great writing duo is the poetry, play with words. He creates beautiful imagery even of the darker side o [...]

    23. This book is proof that a story doesn't have to be long to have an impact. And hopefully neither does this review. Seriously. Get thee to your nearest bookseller and get a copy of this.What we have here is two storytellers who have mastered their craft. I was blown away. This is a story of boy meets boy, but it's so much more than just that. It's about being kind, about being lost, about changing your preconceived notions, and taking chances. It's about pain and loss and hope and joy. It's about [...]

    24. *** 4.5 Stars ***This was real and lovely. It played tug of war with my emotions and the way that I felt about the characters (who were complex and flawed and more lovely because of it).

    25. This one-breath reading is imbued with a timeless Dickens' wisdom- 'No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for anyone else'. It is just as relevant today as it was when Mr. Dickens wrote it in the 1800's. Overcoming his own arrogance and ignorance, Adam lightens Tork's burden who is having bad days- living in an abandoned smelly places. Helping somebody else could be as simple as a smile or some good words, and it could be as solid as a home- a place to stop falling. So th [...]
