    Who will win?

    Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf is fantasy novel with a romantic twist. Zera is an immortal soldier who is bound in service to a witch, her heart stored in a jar. When the witch tasks her to get the heart of the crown prince in return for her own, it's all or nothing. Prince Lucien has everything and hates it. People either tiptoe around him or are out to claim him. Then Zera comes along and she's not like anyone else. The battle of wits between these two makes for a fun and intense read. The fact that so much is on the line makes it even more complicated. Hate and love are closer than people think, but only one of them can survive and it's hard to see a way out. Overall I enjoyed Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf. This was an intriguing and suspenseful book with a complex and interesting world. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    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.

    Zera is a sass machine and I'm here for it.

    When I saw this pretty cover with the awesome-looking Zera brandishing a giant sword and read the title, I was pretty much sold on this. Then I realized that she was actually, LITERALLY trying to take the prince's heart and I was gone. I needed to get my hands on this thing and IT WAS SO GOOD. First of all, the sassy wonder Zera was my favorite. Wearing fancy dresses and kicking butt, all while dishing out the snappy one-liners! I loved watching her grow over the course of the book and make new friends after being alone for so long. Despite having a hard outer shell, she had a great sense of loyalty and love that I really admired. And of course, I OBVIOUSLY loved Lucien the dark haired prince with a heart of gold. The banter between him and Zera was great fun to watch and their romance was adorable. But the real relationship that I enjoyed watching was the one between Zera and Y'shennria. Good parents and/or guardians are always lacking in these young-adult books and it was so refreshing to see maternal relationship take center stage for once. By the end of the book, watching Zera and Y'shennria together gave my heart all the warm fuzzies! Lastly, I thought the world building was awesome! I was really fascinated by this little universe Wolf created and it was fun learning all the rules. Oh, and by the way. MALACHITE IS THE BEST AND I LOVE HIM. Just saying. I wouldn't change a thing about this book, it's perfect the way it is. There's only one thing I need to say and get out of my system... THAT ENDING WAS THE SO DIABOLICALLY EVIL!!!! I NEED THE NEXT ONE NOOOOOOOW!!!!!!!

    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!

    Wonderful Romance Oriented Fantasy

    Zera is a three years old Heartless. WHat is a Heartless? I think it some kind of vampirism because the Heartless thrive on raw meat to keep their sanity in check, for if they don’t eat regularly they become raving mad bloodthirsty monsters. So how is a Heartless born? That moment before death, if a witch takes your heart, well you don’t die, but then you become a slave to that witch, the only way to be free is if the heart of the person is returned by the witch, then you can continue with your life or the witch dies, and so does the Heartless. That’s all the spoiler I am giving away. For all the love I have for this tale, it starts off a bit slow, it took me a couple of tries before I could finally focus enough to read and digest it. It’s not like it’s not interesting, because it is, the world is quite intriguing, it’s a normal world as far as it can go, set in a time where there’s scientific advancement, yet still in an age where transportation is by horse-drawn carriages and witches, there’s is glorious magic in this book, and of course I am on the side of the people with magic. This an Entangled Publishing book, so the romance in it, is everything to write home about, but oh so angsty! the chemistry between Lucien and Zera is scorching, I love the banter between them. The road to them falling in love is mainly the story, with the fantasy elements coming out boldly in between. I love me a romance filled fantasy, I feel there should be more written and executed as well as Sara Wolf has done with Bring Me Their Hearts. I love Zera, she is a bold character, who despite everything (they don’t consider Heartless to be human, I mean they are undead beings moving around with no heart, but they still can be human again, so I think the disdain for them is completely unwarranted, especially most Heartless did not choose to be, humans can be despicable with their logic) is a kind and extremely compassionate being. Yet she doesn’t let anyone lead her, despite being a slave, she is her own sassy self and I would love to have her as a friend. I absolutely hate the guilt she has forsaken herself with. The guilt of being a Heartless, I mean it wasn’t her choice, and I think it’s unhealthy how worthless she feels she is because she is such an amazing being and more than anything deserves her humanity. There’s a lot going on and I totally hate the King in the story, he is so weak and unworthy of the throne, ruling by fear can only get you so far and turning a blind eye to suffering is inexcusable, miss me with he’s a grieving father, when you’re the ruler of a kingdom, it’s tough but your kingdom, the people in it should always come first. That’s why I really like Prince Lucien. The book ends with the worst kind of cliffhangers, I just hate it when the last moments of a tale is so short but covers a lot of ground at once, so many revelations at the end of the book, that will only leave you speculating with unanswered questions, that you can’t help but ask your bookish god, why the author toyed with your heart so dirtily. I was given this book in exchange of an honest review, which I have done ever so wonderfully, I can’t wait for the next book in this series and I believe it is one every romance and fantasy lover will enjoy reading. I know my review gives so little away because I want you to please pick up this book and read it.
