Summary: The finale to the epic Bring Me Their Hearts series reaches its thrilling conclusion, full of intrigue, emotion, and of course romance.
Reunited with Lucien, Malachite, and Fione, Zera finally has the choice of whether or not to regain her humanity and give up her life as a Heartless. But with war raging and an army of valkerax on the loose, she’s never needed immortality more. Will they be able to stop Varia without sacrificing themselves in the process?
Oh no! This review is for the final book in the Bring Me Their Hearts trilogy, so if you have not read the first two books yet, tread carefully. You can read my review of the first two books: Bring Me Their Hearts and Find Me Their Bones.
Bring Me Their Hearts is one of those stories that buried itself in my heart. It’s one of those stories that you know has to end, but you don’t want it to. So it was a bit bittersweet to read the finale of this beautiful trilogy. I was saying goodbye to these characters I’ve come to love and root for, which is why it was so sad. But the ending was everything I could have asked for. Sara wraps up this series in a meaningful and extraordinary way that brought peace to my heart and left me smiling. It was an ending that was absolutely perfect for this trilogy and the characters.
Zera is by far the sassiest character I’ve ever come across and she alone steals the show. Her character growth is exceptional over the course of the three books. Her journey and her relationship with her friends are exactly what I was living for, especially for her scenes with Lucien (I was bursting with joy every time). She’s one of those characters you can’t help but love and root for, even if she does have some selfish tendencies (who doesn’t?). Zera is fierce and brave and witty and easily captivates any reader’s attention. Zera is definitely a character you will have a hard time forgetting. Her story is one you will have a hard time forgetting. She’s also wickedly smart and filled with sarcastic humor (her banter with her friends is the best). And yet, she’s honest and opens up more in this book than she did in the first two. She bears her soul to those she loves and puts her full trust in them. Zera starts to realize that she is capable and deserving of love, and she understands that through her friends who accept her and her self-acceptance.
But, yet, every journey must come to an end. Zera is smart enough to know that with every adventure, with every journey, comes great courage and sacrifice. But she’s not quite prepared for the sacrifices in her journey that she will have to make. And how Sara portrays all of that – all the emotions, the hiccups, the battles – it’s absolutely brilliant. The emotions in this book seem to pour right off the pages, and that’s all thanks to Sara’s gift in storytelling.
Sara’s writing, as expected, is impeccable. She delivers a story with heart and soul, and as the reader, I could see just how much Sara loves this story and the characters. Her writing draws you in and makes you feel as if you are right there, fighting along Zera and Lucien and their friends. Sara crafts a beautiful world that bears witness to the harshness of any fantasy world but also the beauty hidden within. It’s a world that showcases scars and epic battles, but also love and acceptance. And that’s all present throughout all three books, but more prominent in Send Me Their Souls. When I say this book had everything, I mean it: Send Me Their Souls is really brimming with all that emotion and captivating storytelling. It is, without a doubt, a series with an epic ending and an unforgettable story.
This trilogy will forever be one of my favorites. It’s got every element I love: exceptional characters, sizzling romance, extraordinary world building, and a gripping storyline. If you are looking for a new fantasy series, definitely check out Bring Me Their Hearts!
