Bring Me Their Hearts
Author: Sara Wolf
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: June 5, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen

Description:

Zera is a Heartless—the immortal, unaging 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 Zera’s 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.

Literally.

Bring Me Their Hearts is a fantastic mix of several genres that will end up appealing to almost every kind of reader. It blends so many different things together - magic and fantasy, politics and court, wars and history, and romance (of course) - and the end result is a wonderfully unique new young adult novel that will leave you begging for more. For me personally, I loved basically every single aspect of the book. The world building was fantastic and incredibly thorough. I loved learning everything about the history of Zera's country, the wars that had been fought, about the witches and the Heartless, and then there was all of the political intrigue and issues that spanned the entire plot. I thought it was all fascinating and added lots to the story line. 
 
The characters were all well rounded, but Zera (our main character) was obviously the most complex and developed. I loved getting to know her throughout the book. She's been through a lot in her short life - most drastically being made into a Heartless. Even though she has this "hunger" inside her because of the magic, she's still a good person and I easily identified with her right from the beginning. Writing style is one of the most important aspects of a book for me and can easily make it or break it for me. The author used the first person point of view for the story, which is by far my favorite, and I was so thankful she did. Zera is the narrator, so we learn everything from her point of view, which also allows us to get to know her on a deeply personal level (another thing I love about the first person POV). I loved watching her character grow and change throughout the course of the book, and I also liked watching her relationships with other characters change as well. All of these things added up to make a really great read for me and is one that I highly recommend to fans of all genres.
