Monday Review: The Hearts We Sold – Emily Lloyd-Jones

(WARNING: LANGUAGE AND SEXUAL REFERENCES)

This world is full of demons who will grant you one wish in exchange for a body part.

Deirdre, known by Dee, has had a terrible home life, and sets off to a boarding school to escape. Dee finds out her scholarship is expiring and if she can’t come up with the money somehow, she’ll have to leave school.

A very peculiar demon finds her and offers her a deal; her heart for two years. She refuses at first until she comes across group of people who close voids that have been appearing all over. She offers her heart in exchange for money for school, and she becomes one of the Heartless, a void closer.

The demon gives her a knitted heart that takes the place of the heart he takes, if anything happens to it, they will die just as with a regular heart.

Some of other group members contracts are almost up but keep helping the demon (and essentially the world) bring a close to these voids.

Dee also starts to fall in love with one of the group members, James.

Will Dee and James be together?

Can the voids be stopped?

Will Dee get her heart back or will she die before her contract is up?

Can her life ever get better?
