Goodreads Summary:
Zera is a Heartless – the immortal, unageing soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger ever since she saved her from the bandits who murdered her family, Zera longs for freedom from the woods they hide in. With her heart in a jar under Nightsinger’s control, she serves the witch unquestioningly.

Until Nightsinger asks Zera for a Prince’s heart in exchange for her own, with one addendum; if she’s discovered infiltrating the court, Nightsinger will destroy her heart rather than see her tortured by the witch-hating nobles.

Crown Prince Lucien d’Malvane hates the royal court as much as it loves him – every tutor too afraid to correct him and every girl jockeying for a place at his darkly handsome side. No one can challenge him – until the arrival of Lady Zera. She’s inelegant, smart-mouthed, carefree, and out for his blood. The Prince’s honor has him quickly aiming for her throat.

So begins a game of cat and mouse between a girl with nothing to lose and a boy who has it all.

Winner takes the loser’s heart.



I devoured this book. Bring Me Their Hearts was so much fun!! I know that's not what you typically associate with a high fantasy novel but the main character had so much sass it was hard not to have a blast while reading the book.

The pacing of the story was perfect. The writing was engaging and every second I spent reading had me excited for what's coming in the next minute. "Simply that our pain breeds hate, and our hate makes us all do terrible things." (ARC, p. 69). The emotional intensity, the gradual changes in the characters and the predictable yet fulfilling twists gave me the most delicious of feelings.

Zera is the bomb! She was incredibly sarcastic and voiced her opinions unapologetically. She was exactly my type of anti/heroine. Despite being a Heartless she had more heart than most of the nobles at court. Her situation was no joke but she always managed to bring about a lightness to the seriousness she faced. I'm a total fan of her compulsive nature and her ability to improvise. I'm also super in love with her brand of snark <3

At its heart (see what I did there~) Bring Me Their Hearts is about belonging. Zera longs to be her own person again. The path to do so led her straight to finding something she didn't think she could ever feel as a Heartless. "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." (ARC, p. 326). And Zera definitely wasn't alone in beginning to feel more.

Given that there's a prince in the story, there is, of course, a romance ;) Prince Lucien wasn't the warmest of person but from the very first moment they met, Lady Zera gave him a run for his money. Lucien's definitely met his match in Zera. They each had their own agenda but I loved watching them dance around and with each other. I need them together!!

Bring Me Their Hearts has a killer cliffhanger that makes me want to stab someonething. Take my heart if it means I can have the next book!! Just joking but I seriously have the strongest need for the sequel now T.T
