Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen.
At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship.
Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.
Marissa Meyer has long been one of my absolute favorite authors of YA. Her newest release is Heartless, a stand alone fantasy that tells the origin story of the Queen of Hearts.
If you love her Lunar Chronicles series like I do, be prepared to devour the delicious whimsy, romance, and heartache of Heartless. This has some similarities to Meyer's novella Fairest, in which she gave us Queen Levana's origin story. Catherine is a much more likable character in Heartless, but the parallels between their stores are definitely notable. Fans of Alice in Wonderland will be excited to see all of their favorite characters years before Alice showed up in Wonderland. My favorite character in this book was Hatter by far. His story is particularly compelling.
Check out more of my thoughts on Heartless in the video below - all spoiler-free of course!
