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 the 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.

Literally.

This book hooked my attention from page one. I was initially drawn in by the cover – it’s gorgeous. Don’t judge 😉 The girl in the red dress and that expression on her face had me intrigued. But this wasn’t a four star based on the cover alone. This book has substance, and plenty of it. Weighing in at 400 pages, this is no light read. But every page is more than worth its weight!

Right away, we are placed in a royal setting, with Zera “competing” for the Prince’s hand. Almost like a Bachelor-meets-Miss USA pageant. Books involving royalty are an extreme weakness of mine so this was an instant hit.

Add in some witches and you have a story that grabs your attention and doesn’t let go. It certainly grabbed mine. And then you have Zera. I loved her character the most, but I am a sucker for a sassy – if not a bit sarcastic – main character. In that aspect, she did not disappoint.

oh please whatever

I liked also that her struggle was real. She wants her heart back, but is she really willing to pay the price to get it? This was the question on my mind from the very beginning. What is Zera going to do? She’s not really going to take the Prince’s heart, is she? 

What I enjoyed most about this book was its uniqueness. In order to get her heart back from the witch she serves, Zera has to get the Prince’s heart, literally. Amazon classified this as a folktale adaptation but it’s not like one I’ve read. And it had a faint Evil Queen-esque vibe to it, which I liked. But this story was all its own. It was a refreshing change.

A big thank you to Sara Wolf, Entangled Publishing, and YA Bound Book Tours for including the Ginger Mom in this blog tour! I received a complementary copy of Bring Me Their Hearts in exchange for my review, though the gifting of this book in no way influenced my review and all opinions expressed within are entirely my own.

IMG_20180508_192709_490000.pngThis is a book I would recommend to anyone looking to escape into the fantasy world for a bit. How about you? Do you enjoy a character with a bit of sass? If put in Zera’s place, would you be able to trade someone’s (even a smug, pain-in-the-rear Prince’s) heart to get your own back? You’ll have to read the book to see if Zera can go through with it! And if you’ve already read it, let us know in the comments below what you thought! If you like this review, consider sharing it on Pinterest 🙂 And, as always, thanks for reading ❤

hugs and happy reading megan
