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.

The Bring Me Their Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.

Many thanks to NetGalley, Entangled Publishing and Sara Wolf for an ARC in exchange for an honest book review of Find Me Their Bones. My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advance copy. *If you haven’t read “Bring Me Their Hearts”, the first of the series, beware of spoilers below. “Find Me Their Bones” picks up immediately from where the first book ends. Princess Varia is alive, Zera went full Heartless on Gavik’s men but only because they were going to kill Prince Lucien. Now that everyone knows that Zera is a Heartless, they are afraid of her. They feel betrayed knowing that she was only getting close to Lucien for his heart. Varia falls back into her role of heir apparent but is keeping a secret from her family. She is a witch and now she is Zera’s witch. She tricked Zera into revealing her witch’s name and now Varia controls Zera’s heart. She has a special mission that only Zera can perform. Varia has a mission. She wants to be able to control both her people and the witches. And she can’t do it without an army of her own. Similar to the first book, I really enjoyed the world that Wolf has created as well as the story. There are new twists, new characters and lots of fantasy elements that made this second book exciting and interesting. The problem that I had in the first book is even more pronounced in this story and that is the relationship between Lucien and Zera. At least in the first book, they were falling in love with each other. This book is entirely one dimensional and stereotypical. Lucien’s feelings are hurt so he is mad at Zera. Zera feels bad and thinks Lucien is better off without her so she continues the ruse of pretending to not like him. I can’t take the suffering in silence. The martyrdom. She will sacrifice her happiness for Lucien. She pushes all of her friends away with the “It’s best for everyone if they don’t like me”. From beginning to end this is the underlying element. It is this overriding message that has been a disservice to girls and women. Whether it is pre-teens, teenage girls, or women that read this, this is not a sentiment that women should aspire to imitate. This is the very thing we have been fighting against. With so many better, more modern female characters being written, I would have been happier without this all too familiar behavior. Plus it made my blood boil the whole time. There is a third planned in the series and I will be reading it. I can overlook the female issue because I’m a grown-ass woman. Although I’m pretty sure how it is going to end, it is how Wolf gets there that will make it interesting.

Love, loyalty and sacrifice! Thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Teen for the opportunity to read and review Find Me Their Bones by Sara Wolf! The second book in this trilogy feels much calmer than the first. I want to know more about Varia and how she came into her position and knowledge at this point in her life. More opens up about Lucien and l’m hoping the third book will address my questions and other readers’ questions. Yori and Malachite are both interesting and entertaining and Zera still has the sense of humor that I enjoy. The suspense and danger didn’t seem as intense but the witch fire scene built up the action and we get to see vulnerability in some of the characters. I’m looking forward to the next book and I hope it brings the story and these characters full circle. 4 stars! * I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration and all opinions and thoughts are my own.

Wow! What a way to continue an amazing first novel. This books picks up right where the last book left off. I don't want to say to much because of spoilers. However, if you loved the first book you will love where the story is going. Wolf's writing style has me hanging on every word and desperate for more. I could barely put it down in my busy life. I highly recommend reading the first and the second one (and the third on when it releases!). This author and series is worth it.

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.

Seriously blown away. This series has me hanging onto every single word. I can’t get enough. I want to know everything but I don’t want it to end. Being heartless means the place where there should be a beat is missing its instrument. Lady Zera is immortal and as special as a heartless can be. She belongs a witch and has one task in mind. Finding peace isn’t possible with the hunger inside her. Having her heart should mean everything but what of the friends she’s made. The ones who call her a traitor. Lady Zera has a new mission and yet her goal remains the same. Bringing her heart back into her chest will cost her the ultimate consequence. To feel whole again will mean to understand her Darkside. The bone tree holds all the magic but the end is not quite in sight. I’m hanging on to every cruel minute in the wait for the next instalment. This book is fantasy at its best. The heart is only as good as the owner's soul. Choose wisely. *I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. It’s excellent. This series needs to be read in order and from the beginning. 5+ out of this world stars.

This book is the second in a series. Even though I did not read the first one Sara Wolf does an amazing job with all of the little details and hints that would allow a person to infer what went on before. Relatable characters with realistic relationships and thorough built fantasy world that had me saying just one more chapter.

ARC received from Entangled: Teens Publishing and NetGalley in exchange for honest review, opinions are all my own. Thank you! I really enjoyed the first book, I liked the world that Sara Wolf had built the concept of the heartness and the witches. And while this book builds further on this it suffers from being the middle book in a trilogy. Ah middle book syndrome, even some of my favorite trilogies fall flat in the second book. Its still good, it just can't reveal too much too quickly which causes for a book that drags at times. Because of the rift between Zera, Lucien, Fiore and Malachite their interactions together are now tense the betrayal running deep after the revelations that Zera is Heartless. The relationship of an easy growing friendship/romance is now broken and Zera in a way to protect herself and the rest has to continiously push them away. It is sad seeing Zera continue to suffer as she seems to desperately want to go back to how it was, even if the reality is that's just not possible. We now have Varia as a new character and I really loved her. She's strong, wants to save everyone but is more than willing to be manipulative and underhanded to get what she wants. There is a single goal in her mind and while she loves her brother and Fiore, its refreshing to see someone not waver from their original goal even knowing that it will cost her everything. Most of this book is Zera dealing with the valkerax and those were my favorite parts. While the two are so vastly different, the find connections together. The pain of not being free, controlled and manipulated completely against one will to the point of madness. I felt sorry for the valkerax, who just like Zera wants their freedom. It was in these moments that the book shined so strongly. What I really loved was that ending! Much like the previous book the author knows how to build up an amazing ending. A slow burn conflict between the characters that finally came to a head that made me realize I have to wait until the next book! I think my biggest disappointment in this book came from much of Zera's dialogue, it felt so out of place with the rest of the dialogue. It's not that she's cruel in a way to keep people away, I completely understand that. It was the quips that felt like too much for me, like the book was trying to be more clever than it needed to be. A few times scattered here and there would fine, it felt like it fit in certain situations but was just too much in the end for me. I'm hoping with the way book ended we won't see much of it in the next book.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the e-ARC. All opinions are my own. I think this one was a solid 3.5 stars, because I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first one. I did enjoy it however. I think it was a good middle book, those usually suffering a bit by building plot points for the future book. I still liked all the characters and the romance. For me, there was quite a bit of repetition throughout the book so we're kind of hit over the head with the same thing over and over and it dragged a little here and there. Overall, I did like it and I will definitely be reading the next book.

✧ ARC PROVIDED BY THE PUBLISHER VIA NETGALLEY IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW ✧ ❝ Is there a light in the world strong enough to shine through the dark things I’ve done?❞ This book… ouch. I took this sequel like a shot and finished it in less than twelve hours. And let me tell you, Find Me Their Bones is the definition of epic. Sara Wolf has upped her narrative arc game to such an extent that the beginning and ending of this installment mirror those of the previous one, making me appreciate her brilliance as a writer all the more. While Zera and Lucien’s relationship was the heart of its predecessor, Find Me Their Bones feels much more like Zera’s book. Suffering from the negative consequences of a choice she is now convinced was wrong, our heroine is more determined than ever to win her heart back, no matter the cost to her former friends. Taking center stage in a plot to rally the dragon-like valkerax to Cavanos’ side in the impending war between humans and witches, she explores her moral grayness while attempting to sever her ties with Vetris’ nobles once and for all. Previous and current events are analyzed in conversations and internal monologues in a deceptively straightforward way, inspiring readers to look between the lines to discover what is real and what is false. As always, Wolf’s ability to introduce side characters who feel completely fleshed out despite their modest role in the story and brilliantly develop their relationship with the protagonist shines. The history and mythology of the world is also given more development and weight in this installment, which feels more like a high fantasy with a romantic subplot than a fantasy romance like its predecessor. Zera and Lucien’s relationship in Find Me Their Bones is the epitome of Margaret Atwood’s line: “If I love you, is that a fact or a weapon?” Viewed from a myriad of angles, from infatuation to lust to love, their relationship is equally pursued and exploited by each of them in turn, making their interactions both delightful and painful to read. Admirably bent on their diametrically opposed goals, Zera and Lucien use every trick up their sleeves – physical desire, dishonesty, court intrigue, magic – to realize their intentions, inevitably hurting each other in the process. But in the rare moments when their masks slip, they’re utterly incapable of fooling themselves, much less the reader, that their emotions are entirely fabricated. Can we please call it even now and have a heart to heart (pun intended) about this hot mess of a relationship? Thanks. As exciting as this book was, my four-star rating marks it as a slight letdown from the glorious Bring Me Their Hearts. In a word, the plot lacked a world-turning twist and continued firmly on the path it had set out from the beginning, somewhat diminishing the effect of the ending climax. Nevertheless, instead of being merely a set-up for the grand finale, Find Me Their Bones is a marvelous story in its own right with a just the barest hints of future events sprinkled here and there. Finally, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate Wolf’s subtle development of certain elements from Bring Me Their Hearts, such as adding more depth to Gavik’s motivations and gender-bending Zera and Lucien’s true names. Her heart-warming attention to detail with (sadly) surprising feminine pronouns, her nods to the Multiverse Theory with Zera’s parallel-timeline fantasies, and the tongue-in-cheek meta awareness of both her language an

4.5 Stars After I finished the cliffhanger of book one (Bring Me Their Hearts, which must be read first) I couldn't wait to see what happened next for Zera. Book two picks up immediately where Hearts left off and dives into non-stop adventure from there. I really love the colorful world the author created for this series - I feel like I could read about its people and customs forever! I also really feel for Zera's struggle with being Heartless and the guilt she carries for what she has done. Even when I understood why she was making certain decisions my heart was screaming for her to make different ones - this book had more angst for me because of that. We were also introduced to a couple of new characters and saw original ones go in directions I wasn't expecting. The ending once again had me so very eager to see what happens next - I need more ASAP. I voluntarily requested, read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. #FindMeTheirBones #NetGalley

I really enjoyed reading this book. Sara Wolf’s writing is fluid, witty, and a delight to experience. It is the type of writing that immerses you so much into a story that you forget you are reading and just experience. This book was definitely a couldn’t put down, rush to finish, read. Find Me Their Bones is a story about the struggle to find value in oneself. It is about sacrifice, solidarity, and well intentions going wayward. Zera, a heartless who finds herself under the command of a new witch, is trying to cut ties with the ones she has loved, betrayed, and feels she never deserved in the first place; all the while trying to save them by participating in a plan to bring peace to a forever warring land, and hopefully her heart back to her chest. Wolf, once again, writes rich, compelling characters and has an intriguing plot that weaves answers and questions expertly to keep the reading riveted until the end. I loved the lore and history that is learned and expanded upon in this book. The relational conflicts and mishaps felt earned and not contrived, and I continued to love the interactions between Zera and Lucian. The book does end with a cliffhanger, which isn’t my favorite, but the story has wrapped up by then. I’m excited about the final book in this trilogy and I expect that it will live up to the standard the first two books have set. Positives: Excellent writing, character development, pacing and plot Negatives: Cliffhanger ending. Things that might matter to some people: LGBTQ relationship/representation. No language. Mild violence. Some kissing.

4.25 stars **I received an ARC from the publisher. These are my honest opinions, and in no way was I compensated for this review.** I was so excited when my wish for Find Me Their Bones was granted! I loved Bring Me Their Hearts and I couldn’t wait to read the sequel. Find Me Their Bones blew my breath away and stole my heart. The worldbuilding in this series has always been the aspect that astounds me the most, and this sentiment grew ten times with this book. The further development of the mythology and religion was so, so cool. I loved delving into this world of witches and Heartless and valkerax. I’ll be honest and say that I couldn’t remember everything from the first book, but I started this one anyways and I’m so glad I did! The plot is fast-paced; I couldn’t put Find Me Their Bones down because every new scene had me enraptured. The characters are back and as great as ever. I adore Zera’s sass, and her comebacks have me in tears. However, the angst between her and Lucien made me so sad, though not in a way that I hated. Also Zera having to keep secrets from her friends was so heartbreaking; she’s in a difficult position but also trying to keep them safe, even after she’s betrayed them and they no longer trust her. I can’t really say much about the plot of this book just because of spoilers, but I will say that this one was truly crushing. Again, the angst! The character growth! The prose is stunning! I found that it really emphasized the angst, as Wolf did not pull any punches when writing. It’s hard to describe why I love her writing so much, but I just do. It’s addicting, and I could not put this book down. Find Me Their Bones enamored me with its prose and characters. I greatly appreciated the plot, although the angst left me heartbroken. If you haven’t read Bring Me Their Hearts, I can’t recommend you do so now that the sequel releases soon. This series will bewitch you and take your heart!

Find Me their Bones is the perfect sequel to Bring Me Their Hearts. It’s a electrifying, thrilling and heartrending ride. It picks up immediately after BMTH. In this, Zera is thrown by new events that transpire in regards to her heart and her witch, and must deal with the fallout of her friends finding out she’s a Heartless. She’s also taxed with a task that could alter her life and her entire world. I loved everything about this book. Every twist and turn gets better and better, and it left me desperately wanting more. Zera is one of my favorite Ya Protagonisfs, full of heart and determination. This series is your next binge-worthy obsession.

FIND ME THEIR BONES is a compelling sequel to BRING ME THEIR HEARTS. Picking up right where the first book left off, this one spares little to recap the previous book and launches in to a new story line and adventure. Zera is a Heartless, an immortal being who is tied to the witch that holds their heart. They need to eat organs to live (animal organs will do) and are considered dangerous and ruthless. Zera is at war with herself over her nature and who she wants to be. In the sequel, Zera has a new witch master with a new task to earn her heart back. She longs to be human but she does worry over the friendships broken, the value of herself/heart vs. others, and who she will be when she is again human. Zera must teach a dangerous beast how to Weep, a rare skill that allows Heartless to disobey their witch and act of their own volition for a short period of time. The valkerax is a mythical creature come to life and speaks with her in poetic language. Unraveling all the threads of those who wish to use Zera, those who may care for her, and the dangers yet to come makes this book quite a quick and intense read. Zera herself is continuously evolving as she learns more about herself, her desires, and where she wishes to fall at the end of things. Although this book ends with a cliffhanger, the journey was quite full. I think a reread of the first book would be helpful before starting this one, as there is not a lot of time spent recapping the first (only some mentions here and there). However, this book launches into a different adventure that makes the first background material. This book is really engrossing. Zera and the valkerax bring all new insights and historical context to the world and themselves. Zera also manages to continue to bring the snark in this book, and I absolutely adore her (as much as she might believe she is unlovable). I highly recommend picking up this series for any fans of YA fantasy, and I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us. Compelling, unique, and entirely engrossing, FIND ME THEIR BONES is the fantastic sequel we have been waiting for. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
