Bring Me Their Hearts
by Sara Wolf
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: June 5th 2018
Zera is a Heartless—the immortal, unaging soldier of a witch. Bound to the witch Nightsinger ever since she saved her from the bandits who murdered her family, 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.

What inspired you to write a fantasy novel?
Honestly, fantasy is my first love. I read fantasy almost exclusively when I was a child/teenager. I couldn’t find any contemporary I liked, so I buried myself in things like Harry Potter and the Wind on Fire series, and of course the Alanna series. I also read the Pendragon books! Those were great. Fantasy is incredible in the sense it can sweep you away like no other genre. It takes you, literally, to other worlds, full of strange food and clothing and traditions. The best fantasy writers do it so effortlessly it’s hard to notice when you’ve been swept off your feet. I’ve always wanted to write fantasy, but I’m not quite experienced at it. I hope that this first book is one small step towards improving my abilities in that arena. Someday, when I’m old and gray, I hope I can say I’m better at writing fantasy than I was now! Writing is simultaneously a craft and journey, and I hope it stays with me my whole life.
Are there any other genres you would like to write?
Oh I’m a big fan of sci-fi, too, but on the lighter side. I’d love to someday write sci-fi, but I think focusing my efforts on fantasy could eventually help with that. One thing at a time, you know? Contemporary, of course, is also amazing, and it’s what I feel I’m best at as a writer, since a lot of it is character-driven versus world-driven or plot-driven. I’m not TOO fond of historicals, so I’ll probably never write those, but who knows! The beauty of writing is that characters propel or demand a certain type of story, and so you might end up writing something you never thought you would. I started out writing fantasy, but I was awful at it! Five books later I wrote one contemporary and found I was pretty good at that genre. The cool part is I would’ve never written a contemporary if the character hadn’t reached out from the depths of my brain and grabbed me. I guess what I’m saying is to let the characters guide you if/when you write, rather than the genre of story. Genres can always be determined afterward, as the story blooms and progresses.
Thank you so much for stopping by and answering some questions for us!
About the Author:
Sara Wolf is a twenty-something author who adores baking, screaming at her cats, and screaming at herself while she types hilarious things. When she was a kid, she was too busy eating dirt to write her first terrible book. Twenty years later, she picked up a keyboard and started mashing her fists on it and created the monster known as Lovely Vicious. She lives in San Diego with two cats, a crippling-yet-refreshing sense of self-doubt, and not enough fruit tarts ever.
