    Engaging and fun read!

    4.5/ 5 stars! Even being part of an active bookish community, I had not seen much promotion for this novel but found the cover and premise to be intriguing enough that I requested it. This was my first exposure to Sara Wolf's writing and I have to say I enjoyed every minute of it. Bring Me their Hearts aligns with me personal taste perfectly, because I'm often pulled in by a headstrong, witty female MC (even better if they are anti-heroes!), side characters whom I actually care about for their own unique personalities, magic, witches, royalty, romance and action. I was at the edge of my chair during the final scene and I was so shocked that it was over because I didn't know it was part of a trilogy!!! I can't bring myself to regret it though and hope I get my hands on the second book very soon! I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quick but engaging read.

    Yes!

    "I haven't seen more than the prince's booted toes, and I already know he's useless -- and soon, if I have my way, he'll be heartless." quotes from an eARC so this could have changed. For me it takes a few pages or chapters before I feel invested in a YA. The quoted part is from I believe the second page which brought me into the story faster than what I'm accustomed to, which was a nice surprise :) Overall an interesting YA Fantasy that I would recommend!

    Favorite Read of 2018

    I was given a copy of this for my honest review. Thank you Net Galley. ***My review has gifs that go with it, but I cannot post them here. You can find the full review with gifs on my blog: https://www.declarationsofafangirl.blogspot.com.*** I am no flower to be ravaged at your whim, angry wolf - I am your hunter, bow cocked and ready. This book. THIS BOOK. THIS BOOK!!!! Bring Me Their Hearts is at the top of my Favorite Reads of 2018. I freaking loved this book. I will definitely be re-reading it and purchasing the hardback version of it very soon. Let me preface this by saying that I loved just about everything to do with this book. I loved the cover. I loved the writing style. I loved Zera's voice. I loved Zera. I **adored** Lucien. I just loved this book with my whole heart (which is still in my chest, thankfully). Zera was fantastic. She was flawed, oh so flawed, and tormented by her Hunger. Oh, and really quick, the concept of the Heartless turning into ravaging cannibals if they give in to the voice of Hunger in their minds? Bloody brilliant, literally. "I briefly debate telling him humans don't taste all that good, until I remember that normal girls don't eat people." Zera wasn't afraid to speak her mind. She was unapologetically herself and was full of snark and wit. I lost count how many times she made me snicker, and I had quite a few moments of bursting out in laughter in public. I got some looks, but I didn't care. "Lots of people stab me, and half of them I end up being great friends with!" Another thing I loved was that there was no insta-love. Such a breath of fresh air. In fact, Zera and Lucien bickered incessantly in the beginning. "This girl is a..." He narrows his eyes further at me. "Special case. And an especially annoying one." "Don't try to change the subject by flattering me," I singsong. "Do you know how hard it is for me to keep my mouth shut? Spectacular compensation is the minimal requirement." "I hope you are aware you're blackmailing the prince of Cavanos." I sigh greatly. "And here I was, thinking of calling this the beginning of a beautiful friendship." "...the more names someone has, the less he actually does. I haven't seen more than the prince's booted toes and I already know he's useless. I'm sure the only one he doesn't think ungainly is the mirror in his room. He's handsome, I think to myself - handsome enough when he's not being a hateful dog turd." And Lucien...oh Lucien. He was tormented, felt caged by his station, & haunted by the loss and memory of his sister. He stole my heart from the very beginning. The ending absolutely gutted me but was also very satisfying. "I am a monster, and he's a human. I want his heart, and I want his other heart. His affection, his blood. I want it all. But I want the whole of my humanity, and the cost is his." "Almosts, I'm starting to learn, are fuller of regret than absolutes - much sadder than certain yeses and nos. Yes and no mark ends and beginnings. But almosts cling, hovering on the boundary, never quite realized yet still there." Bring Me Their Hearts had everything I need in a book. I've read a couple other reviews that reference this story having a reversed Snow White spin on it, and I can see it, but it's a little bit of a stretch. I almost wish that I waited until the sequel was released before I read this book because I need to know what happens next.

    One last heart in exchange for her own.

    I was reminded of Christina Perry's "Jar of Hearts", particularly the lines I've learned to live half a life / And now you want me one more time. Each time Zera is called to duty, the part of her that clings to hope for a better tomorrow seems to die a little more. But that hope isn't without strength. It perseveres and demands she plead for a chance, one chance, until it's granted. The condition, however, is gut-wrenching and means failure is not an option. It's her life, her future, on the line, no matter the cost. But is that true? How true can it be once she's infiltrated the court and finds herself the object of Prince Lucien's interest? It becomes a matter of following orders or defying them. Is happiness, true happiness, worth the pain that is to come? I adored Zera's wittiness and sass. She holds her ground and stands alone in a sea of treacherous beauty and enemies disguised as friends. It's a gilded cage, one Lucien has lived in his entire life and despises. The artificial pleasantries and niceties are overshadowed by his working knowledge of the backstabbing and lying and underhandedness that goes on. Zera's presence offers a much needed reprieve for the unsuspecting Prince. Entertainment ensues as these two navigate each other and fight to save their world, maybe even make it better. I'm discovering that YA holds more merit than I gave it credit for. In the hands of a capable author, YA subgenres can contend, and hold their own, with their Adult counterparts. Authors such as Ms. Wolf see beyond "normal" young adult tendencies to craft characters and create worlds that could be mistaken for mature yet carry notes of childhood long forgotten, of innocence not quite stolen, of dreams deserving of a chance. Hearts is an unexpected gem, a darkly humorous offering of everything I didn't know I could find in a YA Fantasy novel. I look forward to the next book. Please note: This is a cliffhanger, but that has no bearing on this review. Received from publisher for an honest review

    A book with heart!

    I loved this book! Before I get started with my review, can we all just take a minute to appreciate the beauty of this book's cover? I mean, I don't know how you don't want to pick up a book with a cover like that. I have had this book for about a year and a half. I received it as an unsolicited review copy that I just couldn't get to even though I really did want to read it. I have almost started to read it several times since it showed up at my house but I always put it down (after admiring the cover). I am confident that had I ever actually read a chapter or two, this book wouldn't have been put down until it was done. It really was that good. Zera is Heartless which means she does not have her heart. A witch, Nightsigner, keeps her heart in a jar out of Zera's reach and Zera is forced to stay close to live. Being Heartless does come with a few perks. Zera heals quickly and can survive almost any wound. If her heart is destroyed, she will die immediately. Zera is sent to get the Prince's heart at the royal court with a tiny piece of her heart in a locket so she can travel further. Does she have a chance of getting close enough to complete her task in the two weeks she has been given? I loved the characters in this book. Zera was fantastic. She is tough, smart, and cares about others. More than anything, she wants her freedom and will do what is asked to make that happen. She considers herself to be selfish but time and again, her actions prove that she cares deeply for others and will help whenever she can. I loved the way she could think quickly and take the necessary risks. Luc wasn't at all what I thought he would be. He ended up being the perfect compliment to Zera. The entire cast of characters was very well done. I loved the world-building. I thought that the witches and their Heartless were very imaginative. I liked the historical setting and thought that the way things were described made everything feel very real. Zera isn't human anymore and I liked that the reader is often reminded of the monster's voice inside of her. I thought that the author did a fantastic job of creating a world that felt authentic. I would highly recommend this book to others. I thought that this was a very entertaining story filled with wonderful characters. I cannot wait to read more of this delightful series. I received an advanced review copy of this book from Entangled: Teen.
