A tale of Gothic Horror, a love story, a fast-paced action adventure.

Reviews for EVIL AT THE HEART:

"The detail, the visceral feel of the descriptions helps to create a tension, a sense that this is not a nice place, that bad things have
happened here (and trust me, very bad things have happened here).

By introducing a strong feeling of enclosure, of being trapped in this place, Kelly Grant creates a wonderfully evocative feeling of gothic horror.

I love Kelly Grant's writing because she doesn't lay out the magic like a science experiment. She introduces a sense of wonder. I don't want to
understand the whole physics of the world in the first two pages. I want to explore, to discover, to puzzle things out for myself. Kelly Grant's
novel lets me do that." Jonathan O'Donnell, independent review, Amazon purchase

"I make it a habit to grab free books from Amazon when I get the chance. Typically about 1 in 15 is a great find. This is one of those great finds!

The mix of historical-feeling fantasy and horror is fast-paced, deft, and entertaining." Craig, independent reviewer, Amazon purchase

"The young novice Matteo and his mercenary guardian Septimus Rovero are sent in a journey to the Abbey of the Sacred Heart, but the simple sounding trip turns to be more then anyone anticipated in this debut novel by Kelly Grant... The characters were well developed, with a nice blend of humor mixed with the dark theme of the story... Over all I felt it was a great opening novel, and hope that there will be more to come!" Roger Spotts, independent reviewer, Amazon purchase

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

A little bump :D for Evil at the Heart.

Orsino, 1365
On the day of her betrothal to a man she knows has already killed two wives, fifteen year old Caterina's prayer to be rescued is answered by Ser Arland d'Baude. The Knight of Elarias is charismatic, bold and handsome, and Caterina is already halfway to being in love with him when he asks her to break her betrothal and pledge her life to serving his god. War ravages the Avancine States, as two Patriarchs fight for control of the Church of the Trinity. To keep Caterina safe as she learns to understand the rare gift that has brought her to the attention of the Church, Ser Arland obeys the instructions of the Inquisitor General and takes her to the remote Abbey of the Blessed Heart. In the seclusion of the abbey, and in secrecy, Caterina is to learn how to use her ability to know the truth of things and become an Inquisitor herself.

Pavia, 1420
Very little happens in the sleepy town of Pavia, and that's the way Mercenary Captain Septimus Rovero likes it. His current contract is low risk and he's found a lovely courtesan, Laura, to warm his bed. When Rovero is ordered on a sudden and urgent journey to a remote mountain abbey in the middle of winter, he suspects that his employer, Count Lucian, has hatched the scheme to get Rovero out of the picture so that he can steal the luscious Laura Bonetti for himself. Much to his disgust, Rovero is expected to nursemaid Matteo, a young novice, on a winter journey to the little known Abbey of the Blessed Heart. The abbey vanished from all records over fifty years ago, and Count Lucian's assurances that the abbey is probably still there are cold comfort to his furious mercenary captain.

What should be a simple task rapidly begins to unravel, and Rovero and Matteo find themselves pitted against much more than bad weather and brigands. Can Rovero's skill at arms and notoriously bad-temper, partnered with Matteo's optimism and determination, save them from the terrible truth of the evil that waits at the Heart? Probably not, but Matteo also has the angels on his side. Literally.
