Description

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. 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 an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

In her first stand-alone teen novel, the New York Times-bestselling author dazzles us with a prequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 12, 2016 – Before she was the Queen of Hearts in Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, she was Catherine, the spirited daughter of royalty, destined to wed the King of Hearts but determined to set up shop as a baker with her best friend and longtime maid. In this whimsical standalone tale, readers follow Catherine's simultaneous courtships with the jovial king and his court joker, Jest, whose earnest boyishness makes him far more charming than his royal boss. Caught between her own desires and her mother's stop-at-nothing goal to make her daughter queen, Catherine must decide how much she will risk for a future with Jest. Meyer's Wonderland is a fun and more refined version of Carroll's, and readers will enjoy the obvious parallels. Jest and Catherine have a playfully clandestine relationship, but it's a slow build-up to the inevitable clash between what Catherine wants and what reality demands. Meyer's worldbuilding is extensive and impressive, and the persistent threat of a destructive Jabberwock lends tension, but the story lacks the high-stakes danger that fans of the Lunar Chronicles have come to expect. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Just read it if you don't you will regret it

This book is unfathomably beautiful in every sense. I don't even know where to begin to say what a wonderful and astounding job Marissa Meyer has done and how well she gave this world and characters a life. This book, Heartless, will never leave your mind or heart while your soul will forever be shattered and ridden with the bullets made of ink and paper. It will become a classic that will be incomparable to any other author. I promise this. So if you don't buy it and read it now, mark my words, when there is a great Broadway show based on this you will wish you read the books as people talk to you about it.
Marissa Meyer has a talent for creating the best kind of characters. This talent shone through very brightly in her past books of The Lunar Chronicles. Heartless has just as many unique and quotable characters that are funny, rude, wise, kind, good hearted, lovable, and mad. Her particular talent for piecing these personalities into the story will blind you worse than Carswell Thorne. In an amazing way.
I feel as if it wouldn't be a proper review if I didn't get to fangirl over Jest. Bah. Forget punctuation and grammar and AAAAAHHHHHHHH OMG AAH JJJEESSSSSTTT. AAHHHHH WHAT WOULD THEIR SHIP NANE BE AHHHH OTP OTP ALEART JEST IS SO PRFCT OTP OTP I SHIP CATH AND JEST SO HARD YOU CANNOT IMAGINE AAAAHHHHH WOULD IT BE CATHEST NO THAT SOUNDS BAD HOW ANOUT JESTATH NONONONO JESTRINE NONONO NOTHING SOUNDS GOOD THE FANDOM WILL MAKE SOMTHING UP THO SO ITS ALL OKAY BUT JUST AAAAHAHAHH JEST I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN.
So while this book will take your soul and pretend everything's okay and you trust the book to care and feed it yummy satisfying osmosis then when your soul is all safe and warm and bundled in the pages then the book will crush it until powder is the only thing left then it will eat it and blow itself up until it will be impossible to clean up again *sob sob sob.* I have read many, many, many heartbreaking books that have been soaked in my tears, but this book left me in a puddle of salty water with chunks of my own heart floating out of reach. For days. Let me repeat. For days. I could hardly stand without seeing everybody in the book's life flash before my eyes. I have still not quite recovered.

So what I'm trying to say is that I hope y'all enjoy it!

AHHH SO GOOD

THIS BOOK IS SO GOOD I LOVE IT SM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO TEENAGE GIRLS PLS READ ITS SO GOOD AHHH

Definitely Heartless

A beautiful book it seemed. And then it transformed into a nightmare. No happily ever after here. If you love misery, you will love this book.
