4.0 out of 5 stars Smashing debut from a new author! 26 Nov 2010
Firstly by my own admission I do not read many books, and secondly I am not 'into' vampires/ the undead per se. However, I found Heartless to be a captivating read from start to finish. The character development is first rate, and the use of real place names in Nottinghamshire helps set the scene as the story unfolds. There are some great moments of humour sprinkled in with the macabre one would expect from a tale about the undead, which results in the book being a genuine page-turner. At the end of the book the story is left open, as the sub-title 'Book 1' suggests, which leaves me wanting more. Great debut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start for a new writer 9 Jan 2011
I read a lot, and really like the supernatural/paranormal genre. Ever on the look out for something different, I thought I would give this a try.

I really enjoyed this book, and once the story got flowing I was hooked. Was refreshing to read something that shied away from all the usual vampire extravagance and concentrated on a good storyline.

I'll be keeping my eyes out for the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected find 13 Dec 2010
I'm always on the lookout for something new and fresh to read, I happened upon this book by a new author - I decided to give it a go and was really pleased to find a well written book with a gripping storyline. I will be on the lookout for the next in hopefully a series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Templar Investigations - Review of Heartless 09th Nov 2010 9 Nov 2010
By AW - Published on Amazon.com
Starting the book with almost no expectations at all I was drawn in from the first few pages. The story builds, the characters develop, the unexpected occurs and the level of detail increases. This book would and I am sure will oneday make a great film.

The main character 'Mathias' is a cross between Inspector Morse and Jack Crow (John Carpenter's Vampires) with a touch of Van Helsing at the edges. Although he is a stand alone figure there is history behind why he is what he is, but he is not just an emotional James Bond. There is obviously more to come and the reader will have his suspicions about who Mathias really is especially after reading the Prologue.

It brings in some great new detail relating to 'undead' behaviour and will appeal to all types of occult and horror fan. The pace continues throughout the book and if read over a couple of days (I couldn't put it down) leaves a very complete feeling at he end.

This is a new author and I for one can't wait for book two. This is a very developed subject/genre and finding new ways to approach it is almost impossible but there is always room for a good story and this is what R Sandham has produced, he has also left room for new story areas i.e. Sentinels and Psychic's. The best element of the book for me was the humour, I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion and this sharp contrast with some of the more disturbing passages (there are several) is very addictive.

More please!
