Product Description

Who is really the monster...

For thirteen years, Gracen Sullivan dreamed about a red-eyed demon named Hart Blackwell who tortured her every night. Her mother freaked when she found out about her daughter's "hallucinations" and forced Gracen to go to the doctor, who prescribed some very powerful medication which kept Hart out of her head for five years.

A week ago, Hart came back and brought a friend.

But something has changed, and Gracen is seeing Hart when she's awake too. And the other "friends" in her dreams? They have been found dead.

The police want to talk to her.

Her boyfriend has become distant.

Her dreams are becoming more and more intense.

Hell wants her.

Heaven has to stop her.

When push comes shoving, can Gracen fight the evil eating away inside her or will she be forced to embrace it and destroy the world?

HEARTLESS is the first in a bestselling YA paranormal series.

Books in the series:
Heartless (book 1)
Soulless (book 2)
Breathless (book 3)
Hart (novella)

HASH(0x96c788e8) out of 5 stars “Heartless” by Kelly Martin is freaking awesome! Jan. 16 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love it when a book makes you think. Martin’s story will compel you to rethink all you’ve been told about religious doctrine. Her characters, very well-developed by the way, reveal concepts about God, evil/chaos, and angels/demons which will leave you scratching your head.

The premise of “Heartless” is very unique and deserves a spot in the Twilight Zone gallery. The first pages draw you in with a scene from a horror movie (the main character is being eaten alive!). It teased my mind and left me begging for more. It was hard to tear myself away from this book.
The main character, Gracen, seems to be deeply troubled. All of her turmoil is spilled on the page. Instead of being repulsed by the things in her mind, it drew me in (I admit to being a little twisted myself). I kept wondering could she really be so tortured.

And just when I thought I couldn’t learn more about this college freshman, the reveals start. When I read the first revelation (about 70% into the book) all the pieces fit together. It was as if the dark clouds parted and everything made sense. The book didn’t leave my hot hands until I read ‘the end’. And OMG it was a mind blow moment.

Martin crafted some wonderful characters. Believe it or not, the protagonist was not on my list of favorites. I liked her, but she was clueless and didn’t operate from the strength hiding within her. But wait…big things are coming up for this character. She will crawl up under your skin and make her home. Be prepared.

My favorite character was Hart (a nice play on words). I loved his maniacal tendencies. Believe it or not he’s the innocent one in this story. My heart went out to him. Read this book and you’ll find out. He’ll become your favorite as well.

Lucien is my second favorite. He was perfectly clueless, but his naivety was totally different. By the end of the book his bravery shone through. Unfortunately, loyalty has its price too.

The real villain in “Heartless” is a serious surprise. It was so unexpected, but it fit. The things the villain says throughout the story make sense. This character has an uncompromising hidden agenda. And when you learn the reason for the anger suppressed by the villain…your mind will be blown.

Anytime a book like “Heartless” mentions Biblical references I start my own research. This time I had to check the names of the characters. Gracen is a female version of Grayson meaning ‘gray-haired’ and ‘God’s blessing’ (keep that one in mind). Lucien means ‘light’ and is also the name of a saint. Seth means ‘placed’ or ‘appointed’. He was the third son of Adam and Eve. Sam is short for Samuel and means ‘God has heard’. Jessup is a variation of Joseph which means ‘Jehovah increases’. Hart is a play on the word ‘heart’. All of this is relevant to the story, and will make sense once you read it.

Finally, Martin wrote some unforgettable lines: “Demon Sunday School,” “How can you run from what’s inside of you?”, and my favorite “History, or what we think about history, is never just the actual events as they occurred. They are facts, and I use that term loosely, as told by someone as told by someone else.” Priceless.

I highly recommend Kelly Martin’s “Heartless”. It will make you think. It might just keep you awake at night.

HASH(0x96fe28d8) out of 5 stars And Then God Got Bored Jan. 18 2016
By Rachel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. And it was good and all the angels rejoiced.............. And then God got bored."

Kelly Martin does a marvelous job at putting you in Gracen's shoes. We follow along with Gracen and she knows very little about what is going on in the beginning, which means we know very little. As the story progresses things get jumbled and confusing in the best way possible. In the way that forces you to keep turning page after page, gasping and grasping at bread crumbs.

Every character introduced in this book will make you suspicious. Every character will have you second guessing other characters. I want to rant and rave and tell you everything about this book because it is so, so, so good, but I won't. I'll spare you that amazing feeling of reading a WONDERFUL book for the first time. Stop reading this review and go one-click this book, you won't regret it. I can't recommend this book enough!

About the book for anyone hesitant: From what I heard other people say about this book and from the first few pages I was expecting this to be full of horror and blood and gory things happening. I don't do scary, I don't do horror or gory, but there was something about that first page that called to me, maybe I saw that there would be more to this story. Maybe I knew it wasn't how it seemed. And I was right. It's more of a mystery with angels and demons and hints of horror. It's not nearly as grotesque as some might think after reading the first few pages. It talks about it and makes you feel the horror without being too gory.

I would definitely classify this as a new adult paranormal horror mystery. There's talks of sex (no sex in this book though), there are innuendos, and typical college flirting and lusting. Recommended age for reading is a mature 14 years and older.

This is a trilogy so be prepared for an epic cliffhanger in the epilogue. If you dislike cliffhangers then I recommend reading the final chapter and waiting to read the epilogue when book two, Soulless, comes out, February 14, 2016.

HASH(0x96dd29fc) out of 5 stars One of those books Jan. 17 2016
By IowaAngela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Have you ever read a book where you did not want to put it down? A story that so completely had your attention that it wiggled its way into your unconscious thoughts? I just finished a story like that. Heartless by Kelly Martin.

Heartless is not the sort of book I would have picked up on my own. I’m not one who seeks out paranormal stories. I know Kelly Martin’s books and know that she is an amazing storyteller so I was willing to give this book a chance. I am glad I did!

Heartless is Gracen’s story. Gracen is a well developed character who you immediately feel drawn to. Every night she dreams of Hart, horrible nightmares that feel very real to her. One day she sees someone knew in her dream, a few hours later that person is dead. Throw in a demon and an angel and this story has it all.

When I started reading I expected to read a few chapters then put it aside to go to sleep like I usually do with a book. It was impossible with this story, I drifted off to sleep while reading. When I woke because I had dropped my phone (luckily it had not fallen far so it did not break) I started reading again. Finally, I forced myself to put it down so I could get a few hours of sleep. Then, the story made its way into my dreams. It was as if I was sitting in a theater watching a movie, as the story I had read replayed while I slept. The next morning, I fed my kids then settled down to finish the book. I had to know what was going to happen next. I was not disappointed! This is such a great read. I have already told my brother that this is a book he needs to read, it is not often that I recommend a book to him but when I do he knows it is going to be a good read.

It is not often that a book takes over my dreams. I can only recall it happen maybe three times in recent years. All three of those books have been exceptionally well written. I am on edge waiting for the second book in the Heartless series.

HASH(0x96fdc7f8) out of 5 stars A creative New Adult paranormal Jan. 25 2016
By JBJNYG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
College freshmen Gracen Sullivan dreams of Hart Blackwell. However, he is not the hot new boy in her class or her boyfriend. Hart is a red-eyed demon who tortures her in her dreams. Unfortunately, she is now seeing him in her waking hours, too. Gracen wonders if she is crazy, despite the fact that she tells everyone she is “fine.” She just wants to be “vanilla.” Things reach a new level when her dreams start to become reality, and reality includes girls dying a horrible death. Gracen is determined to save them. However, is it possible she is somehow responsible?

Martin has done it once again! While this is a bit different from some of her books, as well as my typical reads, this is an engaging, creative paranormal (New Adult) full of interesting twists. It is a bit more of a mystery novel then horror, though there are some creepy scenes. This is the first book in a trilogy, and thankfully, the reader will not have to wait very long for the second installment. While there is some swearing, this is a “clean read” overall. Even though it is a paranormal, there is a bit of a faith element woven throughout. The fast pace had me reading “just one more chapter” on more than one occasion.

HASH(0x97017f54) out of 5 stars Good Read! Feb. 15 2016
By Rose Shababy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a little bit of a mixed bag for me. There’s a lot of introspection, which the author uses to move the story along. The main character spends a lot of time hating on herself. And thinking about herself. And thinking about how much she hates herself.

After a while I wanted Gracen to get on with it. Is she nuts, is she sane? Are her dreams becoming reality? The angst of it all became ever so slightly tedious.

That said, there was no point in this book when I felt like just putting it down. I really did want to know what was going on with her, if Hart was just a terrible figment of her imagination, and what was up with her boyfriend.

Gracen doubts her own value throughout the entire book, and because of that, it was hard for me to really like her as well. Which in the end, was really okay. She makes an interesting antihero with an interesting back story. I have a real appreciation for flawed heroes, heroes who seem like real people. Gracen fits that bill in every way.

The end of this book was also very satisfying, with an awesome climax and a twist I didn’t see coming.
