Before the Queen of Hearts, there was Cath. Of course, eventually she will morph into the woman obsessed with chopping off heads, but right now all she wants is to open a bakery selling her delicious homemade desserts. She's been known as one of the best bakers in all of Hearts! But when the King Of Hearts begins showing an interest in Cath, she shows no interest back. No matter how hard her mother tries to convince her, Cath will never consider the King her true love, or anything even close. Enter Jest, the Court Joker. Right from the start he catches Cath's eye. He's an interesting, sparky character that is unpredictable. He sweeps Cath right off her feet. But between the King obsessing over Cath's treats (oh yeah, and Cath too) as well as another growing problem, (spoiler that won't be spoken of), can Cath actually shoot for a relationship with Jest, and her love for baking?
Heartless is a wonderful novel that I thoroughly enjoyed! It is a standalone, unlike Marissa's other books, the Lunar Chronicles. Even though you know Cath's fate, you can't help but hope everything will turn out okay--I most certainly tried to find every possible way for everything to work out (sadly, my assumptions were incorrect). I definitely recommend this book, over and over again. 5/5 stars!
