    1. Okay, trying this again lost the bio I just spent 30 minutes writing So now it s just going to be incoherent rambling Yes, the earlier draft was also incoherent rambling, but way better I m the co author or author of about 160 books, including the ANIMORPHS series, the GONE series, the BZRK series, the MAGNIFICENT 12 series Mommy, make him stop saying series , the MESSENGER OF FEAR series, and soon well, eventually the SOLDIER GIRL series.The best way to reach me is at Twitter MichaelGrantBks I ll be honest I keep forgetting there s mail here Here s the thing I don t have an assistant or a staff I would, but then I d have to hire someone and train someone and give them stuff to do, and relate to them as a human being, possibly even care about them I m exhausted just thinking about it But if my handle is in the Tweet, I read it And once or twice a week I go on at random times to chat with fans I love my fans, but it s either be honest with you and be my actual self on Twitter, or fob you off on some assistant, and how would that be better I already have my father in law handling email from my ancient website I d rather be harder to write to but really be me, and really talk to you, if that makes sense Honestly, if it was up to me and I had the time we could all just hang out at random Starbucks Or if you re over 21, a pleasant cocktail lounge perhaps At some point there would be ice cream There must always, at some point in the day, be ice cream I also have a personal Facebook page at AuthorMichaelGrant, but that s limited to 5000 friends and apparently I actually have that many Who knew But I leave it public so if I have something to say I ll do it there I hope you ll give my books a try If you don t like one, that s cool, I don t like every book I read, either But maybe give them a try People seem to like them Now, my publishers want me to sell you on my stuff, so I ll do two brags 1 Everything I write is like nothing you ve ever read before in young adult literature I don t copy, I don t imitate, I don t clone 2 I know how to end a series And that s my advertisement Thank you.

    2. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“Why do people do evil things?”Messenger’s answer stunned me. “Why did you?”This was a good second instalment, and I enjoyed it much more than ‘Messenger of Fear’.I felt sorry for Mara in this story, as she saw how hard her life would be, and how loveless her life would be it seemed to have a real impact on her, and I think she finally started to understand wha [...]

    3. The Tattooed Heart follows the story of Mara, a girl who has been sentenced by a greater power for her hand in driving a young girl to suicide. She's now accepted her fate and works as an apprentice for the Messenger of Fear, a title which allows those who bare it to see into the minds of those who are deemed wicked and extract their greatest fear. To restore the balance, to determine guilt, the wicked are asked to play a game where the only positive outcome is to win. Refusing to play is seen a [...]

    4. The Tattooed Heart had a different feel, compared to the first book. It had some difficult subjects and it was a little bit bittersweet. But I still enjoyed it a whole lot!Mara is still Messenger's apprentice, learning how to be a Messenger of Fear herself. I felt like there was a huge difference between Mara at the start of this book and Mara at the end of it. She has grown so much even though there were a lot of temptations and horrible things to face along the way for her.The story mostly rev [...]

    5. Michael Grant is killing it with Messenger of Fear series! I love everything about them. I don't get why these books aren't more popular! People need to embrace the dark and raw sides of themselves and plunge headfirst into Messenger of Fear and The Tattooed Heart. You're all missing out! Hope there'll be 6 books in total but we'll probably have to accept only 3. I could read about these characters and their unique world everyday. This is my first Michael Grant series I've read. Is his Gone seri [...]

    6. The Tattooed Heart leaves off where Messenger of Fear ends: Mara has just discovered why she has been chosen as the messenger's apprentice and is coming to terms with that. She is learning more about the complex world she has entered whilst acknowledging that she has done wrong.I love that the world in this series is so dark and creepy. It is so unlike anything else I have read about which heightens the horror of it all and it doesn't fail to surprise me.Mara is an interesting character who cont [...]

    7. There's just something about this series that's addicting.I started reading this series when I received a copy of the first book in the series from Harper Collins. I did not request it, but it just came to me. The first book was just okay for me, but when I closed the book I felt like I needed to read the next one. The same thing happened To be honest, I don't really like this series much. It's more of an 'okay' series. For the most part I felt bored. This is a weird series because I am not inte [...]

    8. This. Book. Title. My mind is whirling, but I know that whatever I'm thinking, it'll be 10,000 times more awesome than I expect!

    9. Ahhhhhh this was so good. The storylines of these books are so unique, and they're INTENSE, people. Review to come.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I’m not usually a fan of the creepy, gory, paranormal books, but these are incredible.I’ll go into the reasoning for a second, but I’ll just start off by saying that it has the COOLEST premise ever. If you have no idea what these books are about, basically there are people called Messengers who visit humans.If people are particularly cruel, [...]

    10. Disclaimer: I received this book as part of an ARC giveaway at a local indie bookstore. This in no way affected my opinion of the book or the contents of this review.It almost feels redundant to review this book, because I already reviewed Messenger of Fear, the first book of this series, and my problems with the two books are so similar. In a lot of ways, this is the same book as Messenger of Fear. The themes have evolved slightly, and the events themselves are distinct enough. But the tone and [...]

    11. Mara has learned to punish the wicked as the Messenger’s apprentice. Those who act out of selfishness and greed, and others who become violent because of prejudice and hate, pay the ultimate price. But Mara is constantly reminded that Messengers are serving their own kind of punishment—for every person who is offered justice, they wear a tattoo that symbolizes the heart of the crime. As Mara delves deeper into her harsh reality, she will discover that in spite of all the terror she and Messe [...]

    12. Yet another awesome book by Michael Grant :D One thing that did slightly disagree with me though was (view spoiler)[the way Mara was so adamant that she loved Messenger, even though she hardly knew him at all. And so selfish of her that she wanted to get Ariadne out of the way so Messenger could then love her. But so glad in the end that she decided to save her :D (hide spoiler)] I like the goryness of it, the realisticness and the detail. I also quite like the Master of the Game. He fascinates [...]

    13. If Messenger of Fear was great, then The Tattooed Heart was absolutely brilliant. I couldn't put it down, and when I had to, I was dying to pick it up again. Unlike the last book, I wasn't able to guess the twists, so it gets an extra star for that. An amazing conclusion to the Messenger of Fear duology (I think it's a duology? The third book isn't going to be written? Maybe I'm going crazy). Like the Gone series, these books are another Michael Grant work that I will be reading again.

    14. Originally posted on City of BooksThe Tattooed Heart is a lot more substantial than the first book, and we finally get some backstory on Messenger. The issues brought up here are on a larger scale than we've seen before, and I think are also more serious. I really liked that we get to know the characters more, and though it's still a short novel, it was very satisfying.Mara and Messenger are following new people, trying to give them the justice they deserve. Mara's grown to accept what she is an [...]

    15. If it wasn't for the remarkably satisfying ending that nicely finished off this duology, I'd say that this was one of the worst books I've read this year. The ending that finally gave us answers we've craved since the beginning of the first book, brought Mara and The Messenger's relationship to a close, in a really rewarding way. It felt like a proper ending and I was grateful for it, considering that most of the book was a grim and unexplained mess.The plot of this book was ridiculous. Everythi [...]

    16. Check out my blog for reviews on more new and upcoming books.UtopiaNeverComes---I found the first book in this series, Messenger of Fear, a darkly intense and interesting read. I have never read a book that was similar, so it is a little difficult to categorize it. It's sequel, The Tattooed Heart, picks up where we left off in book 1. We already know the truth behind who Mara is and why she was chosen to apprentice with Messenger, so we are not trying to solve a great mystery in this story. This [...]

    17. YEAAAH! AWESOME!To be honest, I’m not planning to read this one…. until I saw it on the new batch of ARCs from HarperCollins. I’m glad it’s on it… and I read it. Its really good.The thing is… I like the first book… but I never appreciated it that much until now.i><*MC’s Corner*Note: Spoilers.• I remember that I finished the first book after a few days when I started it. That’s not me at all… I want to finish a book in one to two days. (Except when I’m busy or the bo [...]

    18. This book was such a roller coaster and was way better than the first one (Which I loved as well). Mara continues being an apprentice to Messenger and discovers more about her future as a Messenger of Fear. You also see more trials and games and more about Oriax and all of the other Messengers. One of my favourite things about this book is learning more about Messenger and learning about his past, how he became Messenger, but also seeing him as as a human with emotions as opposed to the first bo [...]

    19. Such an improvement on the first book, but still not quite up to Grant standards. There were still some scenes that felt forced, and the whole Haarm thing felt completely unnecessary, unless it's a setup for book 3. The punishments were, again, horrific and awful, but luckily didn't have quite the psychological effect that the ones in book 1 did. These didn't hit my fears as hard, so *phew*. :) I do look forward to the novella and book 3, though, mostly because the concept is fresh and fun. And [...]

    20. This book was actually moving and I love the fact it was mainly about self courage, self control and most importantly KARMA!. It gave me an insight in what Amy happen to you if you do of cause bad to others , it's a strange lesson but it's also a good one . I personally think there's a messanger of fear and their apprentice somewhere out there in the world . It's good to see karma catch up with the people that's brought harm to others and then change them for the better hopefully.I definitely lo [...]

    21. Argh the feels This book was a bit more dark in the scenes it depicted, more brutal, and we can see how Mara becomes who she's meant to be by experiencing all of it. But the most important thing I have to say is : that ending !!! I liked the way it ends, but also not? So, yes, that book was more bittersweet than the first one but I still love it just as much !

    22. I really enjoyed it. It was the right amount of dark and morbid. The ending did not disappoint.The romantic element was kind of blegh. But I guess it was short lived so yeah. ((Oriax 100%))

    23. 4.5/5Oh my God! I dived in this book with seriously low expectations and it amazes me how much I enjoyed it! The Messenger of fear was good, however I found the start pretty tedious and even boring, so I definitely didn't see THIS book coming, it was great! For starters, the theme is AMAZING, I consider the plot is extremely creative and original. The execution of the story in the first book wasn’t fully entertaining, but as the world and characters are already developed in this second install [...]

    24. This one was definitely better than the first book. The story line was more appealing and made me want to read more. The ending was unexpected to me because I thought that messenger and Mara would continue like that. So I'm wondering if there will be a third book. But the ending was still gripping and made me want to read more but unfortunately it had ended.Messenger's character was still a bit undeveloped but it could also be the way how he should be so no comment on that, at the end he really [...]

    25. This book follows on from the previous one with much more understanding of why and how important their role is.I still don't think violence solves violence, but maybe the experiences the messenger inflects can change somebody to be better, the instant punishment probably doesn't help and I'm still debating why some of the game masters games are sometimes long and short (short for those who won't accept their wrong, and long for those who do like (Spoiler if not read 1st book) Mara

    26. I loved this book as much as the first one! I absolutely loved the development of both Mara and the Messenger. The cast of victims and evildoers in this second book is much larger than the first, which focused more on Mara, and I really enjoyed following their stones and seeing changes due to consequences for their horrific behaviour towards the victims. I definitely need to go read the novella and I can't wait for the next book to come out! Definitely one of my new favourite series!

    27. This book has officially reached my list of all time favorite books. I was kind of worried that the second book wouldn't have much to go on from the first book, but Michael Grant managed to do it. The only thing that bothered was how quickly Mara's thoughts changed after Oriax convinced her she was in love. The ending in this book was so much better than the first book. Can we have more protagonists like Mara
