Its an exciting, fast paced, par

WOW, this story was scary and yet extremely addicting!! This is the first book that I have read by this author and I am so totally hooked!!

The characters were phenomenal. I could feel everything Mercy was feeling as I continued to read this story. I have a few unanswered questions about Sumner and Ramsey and I hope to find out in the next book.

The story-line was CREEPY!!! My spine tingled while the hair on my arms stood on end. There were times I was a bit terrified, but yet I was very intrigued

I received an ARC copy of this book and this is my honest review. I enjoyed it. A story about the battle between angels and demons and one woman who is caught between them. Mercy has been in a psychiatric ward for two years after her patents are killed in a car accident. She has been having nightmares and is saved by an angel, only to realise that her nightmares may have been visions. The demons want her and the angels are trying to save her. The problem is no one knows why. As Mercy watches Ram ...more

If you’re one of those people who try to figure out the plot and who done it, than good luck figuring this book out. So many twist and turns your eyes will bulge out and then you’re flipped. Kelly Martin is amazing at throwing you off the rail. Once you think you finally understand, more questions are thrown your way leaving with the urge to read more because You. Need. To. Know!!! Then leaves you with a nasty cliffhanger, jaw dropping and yelling NOOOOO “I have to wait how long for the next boo ...more

A brilliant new series

Kelly Martin does it again a story that pulls you in and hold you from beginning to end. Ramsey has been stuck in a mental hospital for two years following the death of her parents. Not knowing that her nightmares aren't really nightmares but something more. Being attacked by a demon leads her on a journey with a very cranky Angel that Ramsey wishes she wasn't on. The truth about everything maybe more complicated.
I can't wait for the next book

Oh my gosh, what an amazing read. I love Mercy. I've never read a character quite like her. I love her snark and the way she and Ramsey feed off each other, and not always in a good way. This was my first book by Kelly Martin, and I'm now a devoted fan. Seriously, the level of genius in this book was astonishing.

Angels, demons, and Deborahs

What happens when you can't trust what you see? Mercy has been under lock and key for years when things take an incredible turn, not exactly for the best. We get small glimpses of her past as she struggles to make sense of her new reality. The antagonistic relationship between Sumner and Ramsey escalates with some interesting twists. Can't wait for the next book in the series!

Kelly Martin has done it again! This story is anything but simple Good vs. Evil. Mercy Manning is a complicated soul. Just when you think you have her story figured out and teams picked for good and evil, Martin slips in a new twist. Everyone has an agenda and no one is selflessly looking out for Mercy. Never Kiss the Dead is a twisted, thrilling tale of angels and demon and the battle for Mercy's soul and a perfect read for October!

Gripping horror that keeps you guessing

Loved this book and its plot that keeps twisting. The main character’s voice is so realistic. You find yourself rooting for her as you make discoveries along her side in a world where monsters like demons, vampires, and ghosts exist. Terrifying visions highlight the psychological horror. Let’s just say, I’m avoiding mirrors for awhile.
