Summary!!!

In this new adventure with Tess and Max, internationally bestselling author Amy Ephron takes readers to London at Christmastime, where a new fantastical journey awaits.

It’s Christmas break and Tess and Max are in London, staying at the posh Sanborn House with their Aunt Evie. As they wait for their parents to arrive, there is an unusual snowstorm that makes the city seem as if it’s caught in a snow globe. Perfect weather for an adventure in Hyde Park. But when Max, Tess, and Aunt Evie leave to search for a cab, they find a horse and carriage and driver curiously waiting for them at the curb. And that’s just the beginning… 

Soon Tess is charmed by a mysterious boy named Colin who lives at the hotel all year round–on the 8th floor. But Max is sure the elevator only had 7 floors the day before. And how come everyone at the hotel seems to ignore Colin? Things seem to get stranger and stranger. There’s a 1920s costume party in Colin’s parents’ apartment. A marble that seems to be more than it appears. And a shadow that passes mysteriously by Tess and Max’s hotel window. 

Tess wants to figure out what’s going on, but finds only more questions: Is it just a coincidence that Colin’s last name is Sanborn, the same as the hotel? Why does the cat’s-eye marble look eerily similar to the crystal at the top of their hotel room key? And, most importantly, what happened in that hotel one Christmas long, long ago?

In this mysterious story sprinkled with holiday enchantment, Amy Ephron transports readers into the magic of London at wintertime, where it’s just possible that what seems imaginary is real, and your wishes might come true.

My Thoughts:

I found this book to be such a fun read. I really need to go back and read the previous books in this series. I would say this book could be read as a standalone but you could also read them in order. I really loved the holiday setting of this book and think it make a quick read during christmas. I thought the plot at points was a bit choppy and not as clear but I overall flew through this book. I really did like main characters of this read and def want to read their other adventures soon. I really liked how this book dealt with the present and the past and also loved the dymanics between the siblings.

Fan Casting!!

Tess

I think millie would be so good in this role and would have the nice balance between solving a mystery, protecting her brother and dealing with supernatural elements!!

Max

I think again this young actor is a such a great actor and has a nice balance to play this role. I think he and millie would also have good chemistry as siblings.

Colin

This mysterious character seems prefect for this young actor to tackle and I just love to see him and millie interact more on different projects!!

Let me know If you have read this series, who would you cast for these roles, in the comments!!!

Summary!!

No one can save her.

In order to protect Prince Lucien d’Malvane’s heart, Zera had to betray him. Now, he hates the sight of her. Trapped in Cavanos as a prisoner of the king, she awaits the inevitable moment her witch severs their magical connection and finally ends her life.

But fate isn’t ready to give her up just yet.

With freedom coming from the most unlikely of sources, Zera is given a second chance at life as a Heartless. But it comes with a terrible price. As the king mobilizes his army to march against the witches, Zera must tame an elusive and deadly valkerax trapped in the tunnels underneath the city if she wants to regain her humanity.

Winning over a bloodthirsty valkerax? Hard. Winning back her friends before war breaks out? A little harder.

But a Heartless winning back Prince Lucien’s heart?

The hardest thing she’s ever done.

The Bring Me Their Hearts series is best enjoyed in order.
