No one can save her.

In order to protect Prince Lucien d’Malvane’s heart, Zera had to betray him. Now, he hates the sight of her. Trapped in Cavanos as a prisoner of the king, she awaits the inevitable moment her witch severs their magical connection and finally ends her life.

But fate isn't ready to give her up just yet.

With freedom coming from the most unlikely of sources, Zera is given a second chance at life as a Heartless. But it comes with a terrible price. As the king mobilizes his army to march against the witches, Zera must tame an elusive and deadly valkerax trapped in the tunnels underneath the city if she wants to regain her humanity.

Winning over a bloodthirsty valkerax? Hard. Winning back her friends before war breaks out? A little harder.

But a Heartless winning back Prince Lucien’s heart?

The hardest thing she’s ever done.
My Review

I had such a good time with this book!  I absolutely adored the first book in this series, which ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, so I was really eager to get started with this book.  Before I even got started with this book, I was impressed by the cover art.  These covers are just gorgeous and I am a sucker for a good cover.  Of course, the most important part is the actual story and I thought that was very well done as well.  This was such an entertaining read from beginning to end. 

This is the second book in the Bring Me Their Hearts series, which is a series that needs to be read in order.  It is going to be almost impossible to talk about this book without some spoilers for the first book so there may be some spoilers within this review.  Zera is a Heartless, which means that a witch has her heart and can control her.  There are some perks with her condition.  She is immortal.  She dies but always comes back to life.  She heals fast and doesn't age.  Of course, the fact that she is under someone else's control negates any benefit. 

Zera is given a new task in this book.  She must train a valkerax to control its hunger.  This isn't going to be an easy task and she is also having to deal with a very changed situation at court.  I loved the way that I wasn't quite sure of the motivation of some of the characters.  Was anyone really on Zera's side or was she completely on her own?  I loved watching Zera navigate each difficult situation thrown at her.  She is such a wonderful character with a really big heart even though a witch holds hers. 

This book did throw some surprises at me which is never a bad thing.  I thought that the feel of this book was a bit different.  The first book had quite a bit of romance and while I wouldn't say there is no romance in this book, I did feel that things were much more uncertain.  This book does end with a bit of a cliffhanger but it is one that I feel that I can live with, though I am really eager to get my hands on the next installment. 

I would recommend this book to others.  I thought that this was a wonderful installment in the series that was able to keep me guessing until the very end.  I cannot wait to read more of this entertaining series. 

I received a digital review copy of this book from Entangled: Teen via NetGalley.

  5. These books look like they're true to the bones fantasy series. I'm glad you're enjoying them. I haven't had the appetite to read books from this genre in a long time. Though I guess Serpent & Dove is the most recent.

  11. You really do love these covers :D I am glad this sequel could be such a good continuation after how much you enjoyed book one.

  12. Given how the last one ended, I can understand why the romance would be less in this one. I need to get my hands on a copy of this. I really enjoyed the first book as well!
