{Book Review Blog Tour} Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf
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.

My Review:
Meet Zera, second Heartless of the witch Nightsinger. Her sole purpose after Nightsinger saved her from the bandits who killed her parents and nearly killed her is to protect Nightsinger and kill any threats. Nightsinger has control over her because Zera isn't technically alive - Nightsinger keeps Zera's heart in a jar forcing Zera to do her bidding. 

The witches fear another war is brewing between them and the nobles so they devise a plan. They'll send a Heartless to infiltrate the palace posing as a potential bride for Crown Prince Lucien d'Malvane to literally steal his heart so the witches can hold him captive as a Heartless.

Unfortunately, Zera is the right age and look to pose as one of the Spring Brides, but she's far from what anyone would think of a girl from noble blood. Zera is crass, sarcastic, and sassy - not to mention she constantly has to feast on raw meat. But the witches have no choice and Nightsinger proposes a trade - the prince's heart in exchange for Zera getting her heart back. But if she's caught infiltrating the court Nightsinger will destroy her heart. 

She's out to steal the prince's heart. But will he end up stealing her non-existent heart instead?

First off, let me say I've loved the cover of this book from the first time I saw it. It is seriously gorgeous.

As for the story, I liked it - it was a really unique idea. I loved Nightsinger and the other witches names and I enjoyed Zera's sassy, unpredictable banter. I kept having to remind myself that she wasn't a zombie throughout this book (because of the eating raw meat and not having a heart/being technically alive). 

I thought the world-building and backstory of the witches and other characters was well-plotted and kept me engaged, although I felt the story dragged at certain times. This book does end in a cliff-hanger which makes me eager to read the next book.

Overall, if you're looking for a unique fantasy novel with a smart-mouthed heroine, look no further than Bring Me Their Hearts.

My Rating:
3.75 of 5 Stars!
