Jar of Hearts

Fantasy / Romance


He woke up feeling nothing as always, another heart stolen. He didn't care it was always the same. Some stupid girl always gave her full heart to him in the end. It was beyond him, why anyone would give up their heart freely for nothing in return. Where was the logic behind it? He never cared enough to find out the answer. As long as it meant that he got the girl's full heart. Then he knew that he could survive for another year. At least thats how it used to be, before she became greedy. The one that ate the hearts to live. Recently she had become more demanding. He didn't mind. What he found troublesome was the fact that she only ate pure hearts. The rarest kind of hearts. Why? But he knew that arguing was pointless. He wasn't born with a heart. He never understood what was so great about having a heart. If only to give it to someone else in the end. The jar was emptying faster than it was filling up. Time as he knew it was running out. The winter solstice wasn't here yet. He knew that it was only Autumn. He needed to act quickly. Or else....he couldn't begin to imagine that thought. The last thing on his mind before he fell back asleep, was that the heart that he needed to find was the rarest of the pure kind.

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Julia Summers PA: Reading this now. It's fun, hilariously fabulous yet taste of what you desire in a unusual read. I will post an actual review when I am finished. But so far loving the flow and the story seems to keep me drawn
