Even the blackest heart once beat red.
You know what? I fell nothing by now…empty, heartless, empty, heartless…without feeling… I’m now a body without soul…
I’ve long hear lots of lots of rumors about this vicious book…but I never expect it to be like this. Queen of Heart? Although I never cared about her nor fond of her…now…I don’t know any more. As you can read from my previous post, Fairest, I thought I’ll feel some sympathy toward the evil queen…but in fact, I only understand why she done all those terrible things. But Heartless? I’ve no words for it. It’s now winter, and a bit cold in Taiwan as well…but when I’m reading this book? I feel chilling. A sudden chill rise in my body and I can’t stop shaking. (By the way…I’m in my dorm room…which is supposed to be warm) And as you might question what’s my expression now?
I feel plain, empty, heartless. (Oh!!!! And thank you Marissa Meyer, you just give me the most brilliant for my own novels…nothing to do with Queen of Heart, of course.)
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.
