Spoiler Free Commentary:

Heartless is a story about how the Queen of Hearts became so merciless and filled with hate. While I really enjoyed this one, I feel it just can’t possibly compare to the Lunar Chronicles. It takes a bit for the story to get moving and once it does, it feels as if it ends far too short. With a bit more editing and maybe some sections, what was a decent book could have became great!

If you want to get a feel for Marissa Meyer’s writing, go check out her Lunar Chronicles! They’re great!
