Where I Got It: Given to me by the author/publisher for my honest and unbiased opinion
Come to Germania, where a clockwork heart rules and a fool advises--and a laugh can bring both to their knees.
When Princess Hette refuses a sorcerer's proposal, he retaliates by stealing her heart--literally. Desperate to resist his influence, Hette makes herself emotionless, stifling all feelings until she can find her heart and win it back.
The Court Fool is the only one who knows where to find the sorcerer, and he has his own curse to battle.
Riddles and magic plague their path, but if Hette can't find the sorcerer in time, her heart will be the least of her losses
Awwww I am in love with the series. They are all connected in a way, but you can read them separately or in any order you want.
Here we are in Germania where Princess Hette refuses a sorcerer's proposal of marriage. In revenge, he casts a curse. He steals her heart. Desperate to resist his influence, Hette makes herself emotionless and stifles any feeling until she can find get her heart back. The Court Fool is the only one who knows where to find the sorcerer and he has his own curse to battle, so they team up. Riddles and magic plague their path, but if Hette can't find the sorcerer in time not only will she remain heartless, she may lose more.
This was so good. It started off a little slow for me, but then I was hooked and finished reading this in a couple of sittings.
I had no idea what was going to happen or how this team was going to break these curses. I was on the edge of my seat. Especially when we find out the Fools curse and everything he has at stake (won't spoil it!).
Awwww I loved watching Hette grow and find the meaning of love. She had always been heartless in a way even before the curse. She hated love and didn't feel like love was important for her personally or for her future role as queen. She had a great personal journey and it made me happy to see her fall in love with a certain someone and make great friends. It was nice to see her grow and learn and survive these perils. I loved it.
Loved, loved her little team! They were all so different but so similar. An unlikely group of friends that is for sure. I especially adored Konard our Fool. He was my favorite character methinks.
OOooOOOoooOOOOO that ending got me! I was literally holding my breath. I was so worried.
In the end, this was my favorite of the three books so far. I really enjoyed our heroes and their journey. Such a good read to start off October. It's a must-read. 5 stars for sure.
