“You stabbed me. But I can forgive that . Lots of people stab me, and half of them I end up being great friends with! I even attend their funerals. Of course, I’m also the one holding their funerals. Alone. In the woods. With just me and their body and a shovel. But those are minor details.”Zera has been a Heartless for the last three years, a wild, savage thing brought back from the brink of death to do the bidding of the witch Nightsinger. Zera takes joys where she can (as much as heartless, raw meat eating, half feral girl can) battling assassins, stealing pretties from travelers causing mischief within her boundaries. But when she is approached with an offer she (literally) can't refuse, Zera has the opportunity to get her heart and her life back- if she can complete her terrible mission.
I am no flower to be ravaged at your whim, angry wolf—I am your hunter, bow cocked and ready. I am a Heartless, one of the creatures your people fled from in terror thirty years ago.Zera is hands down the best part of the book to me- don't get me wrong, I loved pretty much everything, but she stole my heart with her snark and heartless heart. Isis from the LV series is hands down one of my all time favorite book characters and I feel that Zera and she have a lot in common and I just eat it up. The random tangents, the terrible inappropriate humor, the making the most strange people her new friends, the fact she refused to leave behind her father's sword, her compassion and bravery. Yep, I rooted for her even while she was plotting the demise of a certain prince and eating raw livers, I wanted her to win.
My mind says, Zera, no last name, daughter of a merchant couple whose faces I’m starting to forget: Orphan, Thief, Lover of bad novels and good cake, and indentured servant of the witch Nightsinger, who sent me here to rip your son’s heart from his chest.Another thing Sara is amazing at is the freaking shocking, cliff hanger endings! Surprise, Bring Me Their Hearts is no different. There was some stuff that happened, some truths revealed, some death and destruction and then a big surprise quickly followed by the end. And of course, now I am moping around waiting to get my grabby hands on her next book in what I now discovered was a series. I want, no I need, more from this fantastical world and see what mess will befall Zera next. I previously received a copy of this title to review...but then I went out and purchased my own signed physical copy to hug close. Because it was necessary.
