    "Off with his head," the first quote that we juxtapose next to the heartless Queen of Hearts, and the quote that the book ends in. She seems like a merciless sociopath, cutting off heads if the roses aren't red. The only reason? Because she's from Wonderland. And why is the Mad Hatter so mad? Because he's from Wonderland. At least, those are the only explanations that we allow ourselves to believe in. "Heartless" by Marissa Meyer explores the concepts of the nuanced grey scale of good and evil, and I think her theme is that all humans are fallible, and that no one person is to blame. Watch Catherine as she morphs from the starry-eyed girl who dreamed of impossibilities to one of the most iconic villains in literature history. Get strangled in Cath's constant struggles and get ready to get your heart wrenched out of your chest. Watch yourself become entangled in the constantly resetting wars in the Land of Chess, and watch even the most innocent nursery rhymes become a haunting tale to grab onto your nightmare until the end of Time. And most of all, come to understand why the Queen of Hearts would cut off heads for the sake of keeping her roses red. If you don't read this book, I guarantee you will miss out.

    I've read Marissa Meyer's previous series, Lunar Chronicles, and every one of the books in that series was outstanding. Marissa Meyer's literature skills were evident in all the books she had written. Unsurprisingly, I had high expectations of this book. The book did not fall short, but rather it exceeded my imagination though the amount of talent and thought put into this book. I must say, this was a unique story. I have never read anything like this, and the style that Marissa Meyer used was distinctive and refined. The plot was unlike anything I've ever known. Many books I have read in my lifetime fall along the same storyline with very little notable differences. Heartless, however, was written by a very creative author. You begin the book expecting "this to happen and that to happen ", but it isn't long before you begin to realize how wrong your predictions are. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy and a nice twist to the classic Alice in the Wonderland.

    I first saw the cover on a random page, and decided to learn more about it. When I read that it was about an assassin, I immediately went to buy it. This book focuses on Celaena Sardothien, an assassin, and her participation in a competition almost to the death, similar to the Hunger Games. I loved the way the characters in this story are 3 dimensional. The aren´t completely good or completely evil (except the king), and they don't make me roll my eyes every three pages. The other books in the series are even better, following Celaena´s journey, and how she discovers herself. I seriously recommend this whole series.

    This book was the best fantasy story I've read in a while! Georgina (she prefers George), is twelve years old. George's little brother Daniel is lost, and after a several weeks of searching for him, George's parents drop her off at her Aunt and Uncle's house. Aunt Henrietta and Uncle Constantine are fun, kind, and thoughtful adults. George soon becomes close to these relatives, and she enjoys her stay with them. But then Uncle Constantine goes away on a business trip, and, when Uncle Constantine sends George a letter telling her that he needs help, George is puzzled. The not said to find the "eldest of the els". A few minutes later, Aunt Henrietta is kidnapped before George's eyes. With Aunt Henrietta's last piece of advice in mind, to go left, George does, and she finds two orphans, Caleb and Mikal. They join her in her mission to find uncle Constantine, and the group leaves at once. The group learn that a story Uncle Constantine told George was true, and that in order to save the world, they have to get 3 keys and and 3 objects from the world of Astria. They are given Cavendish, the talking map to aid them, and they become the Snaffleharp company. Their adventures take them to many different worlds, and lots of danger, enchantment, and nice monsters. If the snaffleharp company fails to locate the 3 objects, the world will end. Is this group of kids and a talking map ready to take on the pressure of saving the worlds? I loved this book so much! George is such a brave, thoughtful, smart, responsible girl. I think the message in this story is to always believe in yourself, even if other people doubt you. This book is a adventurous exciting story, and the Characters are always moving, and always learning something new. This is a book that both boys and girls with love! I hope you enjoy this book!

    I absolutely loved the book, especially the plot. George (her real name is Georgina, but she doesn't much like that name), goes to live with her Aunt Henrietta (Also known as Chicken, by her Uncle Constantine), and Uncle Constantine, when her parents go on a hunt to find her brother. On the first night that she's there, her Uncle Constantine tells her a story of a meteor shower that lasts for seven days, and the first time this happened, the seven smartest, wisest, and kindest people were put into a group known as the Council. Their job was to restore order between the worlds, to prevent more stars from falling, and the worlds from ending. There was the Judge, Timekeeper, Innocent, Engineer, Guide, Recorder, and Unlikely. The Council has since broken apart, but must be restored before the seventh night of the upcoming meteor shower, otherwise the worlds will drown under the weight of the stars. George, with her friends, Mikal and Caleb, along with a talking map, Cavendish, must restore order and retrieve George's kidnapped aunt, and her missing uncle, before it is too late. Will they be able to do it? Or will it prove to be too hard a burden for their strong, but small team? Read the book to find out!
