I’ve missed the wit of Sara Wolf and was so happy to delve back into her writing with Bring Me Their Hearts. While her books make you smile with their snarky dialogue, her characters have a depth to them that speaks to the struggles of humanity. This new fantasy tells the tale of a girl who must steal the heart of a prince to quite literally win back her own and the freedom she’s been desperately begging for for years. Life is never simple though and when we begin to love and care for others how do you make the choice of who to sacrifice, yourself or them.
Sara’s world is filled with dark magic, opposing theologies on the brink of war, clever characters, romance, and the fight to just get to be yourself. I can’t wait for book two and to see where this beautiful story goes.— Constance

Zera is a Heartless--the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger, 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.
