Here, Sara, take my heart, it's yours.

Rips her heart out, gives it to the author, dies. Her ghost now returns to write this review and haunt Sara until the second instalment is out.

Sometimes you see a book, drool over the cover read the premise and know, in your blood and your bones, that you are going to love it. That you'll lose yourself in its pages, see what the characters see and feel what they feel, and that you won't rest until you savor the last sentence. That's the case with Bring Me T

This was an absolute delightful bucket of sass, witches and stabbing. And a few bloody tears and fantastic dresses along the way. Honestly it's just so much fun. And while I thought this was a standalone going in lmao no the ending basically pets you on the shoulder and then throws your feels off a cliff. So #nice. I'll just be sitting here on a tree stump crying for book 2.

The majority of new fantasy books lately have been boring me to tears. Too much time describing pointless things and no real characters! I was automatically drawn into the cover and blurb here, so I hoped it wouldn’t fall into that same endless loophole I’ve been stuck in! And I’ll have to say, this book was so much fun!

Finally, interesting characters! I loved Zera’s snarkiness and the constant battle she had with her inner monster. Loved Lucien! The romance is an incredible slow and beautiful b

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf is a young adult fantasy read that from the moment I saw the cover I began a stalking campaign to get my hands on this book. Thankfully this one turned into one of the times that the story lives up to the beautiful cover and I didn't regret my obsession with getting a copy.

What Sara Wolf has done with this story is taken a new twist on a zombie like character. Zera is what is known as a Heartless.  When Zera's family was killed by Heartless a witch, Nightsinger

Love Sara Wolf's writing. Also, blood-hungry main characters are so my jam.

OMG. Listen. I don't BS when it comes to books/reviews. I say what I like, and I loved this book HARD. I also rarely read sequels these days - there are just so many series and so little time - but I need book 2 for this one. And I need to meet this fellow author.
So, so good, you guys.

Video Review:

THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING. It was so refreshing to read something that had me this excited to see what was going to happen next. Although I didn’t love Sara Wolf’s contemporary, this blew me out of the water. From the fantastical elements, to the characters, to the characters that stole my heart; I throughly enjoyed seeing what was going to happen next. I was completely hooked. I have so much to say that I can’t wait to discuss in my book review!

HOLY HELL, THIS BOOK WAS GLORIOUS. Everything I wanted in a YA fantasy. Now I'm just depressed I have to wait for the rest of the series (I thought it was a standalone when I picked it up), but even so, the wait will totally be worth it. I DNF'd one of this author's contemporary romances and now I think I should go back and give the book another shot in case I was just in the wrong mindset to give it a fair chance, but in any case Sara is now an autobuy for me for any of her upcoming YA fantasie ...more

Zera Y'shennrias eligible maiden from old money. Her family still worship the old gods and the noble people have turned their back on them. This is Zera's cover story. She has a mission, one goal to steal the Prince's heart. How romantic! No wait I mean actually steal his heart.

4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum

Bring Me Their Hearts by Sara Wolf was so much fun—much more fun than its grisly premise would lead you to believe. The book stars Zera, who was murdered in a brutal bandit attack when she was just sixteen years old, but was then “saved” when the witch Nightsinger resurrected her by carving out her heart, keeping the organ safe in a magical jar. Now Zera has become a Heartless—immortal, un-ageing, and unkillable by any e

If I had to describe this book in one word, that word would have to be annoying. It felt like this was trying too hard to be a sassy and bad-ass read, but all humor was lost on me. I did appreciate the effort, though.

(But I still hate this book.)

I love Sara Wolf's Young Adult Contemporary "Lovely Vicious Series". I didn’t think Wolf could top herself as an awesome storyteller after the Vicious Series, but then she goes and gives us a Young Adult Fantasy that is totally out-of this-world. Amazing world building, witches, a heartless immortal soldier, a rebellious prince, and fantastic creatures—it has it all. But—yes, there’s a but—Wolf is killing me with her keep us readers dangling by our fingertips cliffhangers. I didn't think Wolf co ...more

For some reason I didn't expect this to be as good as it was. I loved this book! I initially thought that this was a retelling of Snow White and the Huntsman, and I guess it is, extremely loosely so, but not in the way I expected. This story is unique and filled with some fantasy elements that made for a very interesting book.

The characters were developed exceptionally well. Zera, a heartless and the main character, fights

Bring Me Their Hearts was absolutely spellbinding and will stay with me for a long time to come. With an intriguing story and witty characters, I found myself quickly flying through the pages. Especially since I always had that feeling that I had to know what happened next. So if you enjoy YA Fantasies that are filled with banter, mystery, romance, political intrigue and darkness, then you definitely have to give this book a try!

Во-первых, я очень зла, что нигде не указана серийность (или я слепа?), так что оборванный финал и надпись "конец первой книги" практически подожгли подо мной кресло. А клиффхэнгер там знатный.
Во-вторых, имхо, отличная задумка испорчена неровным исполнением. Героиня мыслит излишне современно, и не то чтобы это возбраняется, но как-то противоречит выбранному антуражу. Персонажи часто непоследовательны, градус юмора под конец уходит в минус, мир интересен, но не раскрыт (да, теперь я понимаю, что

“I am no flower to be ravaged at your whim, angry wolf—I am your hunter, bow cocked and ready. I am a Heartless.”


spoiler alert: this is not a standalone.

Okay not going to lie, this book was a bit cliche and predictable plot wise (you can tell from the blurb who’s probably going to get together), but honestly it was buckets of fun.

Bring Me Their Hearts is filled with killer, heart stealing witches, mischievous royalty, magic and swords and pretty dresses and so
4.5 There's some cheesiness, there's some OTTness, and the end felt a bit rushed. But damned if I didn't just eat this up.

To be completely honest, I'm very middle-of-the-scale here. (I don't think that's even a saying lol)

See, on the one hand, I really did enjoy Zera's voice. I enjoyed the relationship between her and the Lady Y'shennria, which had gone from deep displeasure to something similar to a mother-daughter connection. I even liked how the romance was done—no one fell in lust or love instantly, but rather realised their feelings over a long period of tim

This book has a zillion reviews already, so I don’t have to recap it.

The takeaway is that the author actually makes being a zombie fun to read about.

Wolf mixes the usual YA tropes with some imaginative creature features, beginning with the “Heartless” heroine, Zera, who retains her youth and strength, can’t be killed, but fights against a hungry . . . thing inside her, while her heart is kept by the witch who first turned her into a Heartless.

I am conflicted right now...on one hand this is type love-hate story I expected when I started this book...but you never want to know you they become more than target...they become people, with life, with hope, with desire and fear...and with that, it becomes difficult to kill them. It is simple - no brainer. But still majority of YA authors use this thing for the plot...sigh...

I got sent this book in exchange for a honest review, all my opinions are my own and thank you so much to the publishers for sending me this book!

So I love Sara Wold's writing, it's always so engaging and entertains and this wasn't any different. The storyline was epic and the characters were very well executed.

Twenty years later, she picked up a keyboard and started mashing her fists on it and created the monster known as the Lovely Vicious series. She lives in San Diego with two cats ...more
