All is well until they’re captured by witch Aradia, who steals Ammon’s heart and leaves his body to turn into one of her familiars. What’s worse, his sister Nissa has been taken hostage by Aradia’s daughter. Evony makes it her mission to retrieve Ammon’s heart and save Nissa, taking her into the mysterious Witchlands. There, she will discover a secret about her past that will change everything.

    3.5 Goodread stars for me. Great concept and wonderful art. It just seemed so rushed at the end. I wasn't sure if this was suppose to be a series but it looks like it was a one off. I think this could have benefited as a series with another book or two and stretch the backgrounds of some really well thought out characters. I would have loved to have go gone deeper into all the characters as they all had so much to offer. It seemed as each character didn't really get a chance to really be fleshed 3.5 Goodread stars for me. Great concept and wonderful art. It just seemed so rushed at the end.

    RTCI liked the art. But it seemed a little too fast without any solid foundation for making us care about the characters.

    Fortunately the artwork in this is cute and fun, because the story is a hot mess (emphasis on the mess).Most of the problems are plot-related; i.e. things aren’t followed up on and the pacing is all out of whack. The characters aren’t winners either (with the exception of the deer-familiar-demon thing, he’s pretty neat), and their lack of cohesive motivation is a real problem for the story and its believability (as in, why does the witch need to kidnap the princess?

Or why did she switch out her kid for some random one she found on the street? Who knows). To be fair, the answers might have been in that pages-long exposition dump in the middle of the book, but to be balanced, that bit was boring so I skimmed it.Because the worldbuilding is so vague and the script so poorly planned, it’s impossible to tell if all the loose plot threads are things that are meant to be tied up in the sequel or if they were just forgotten about in the rush to get to the ending (e.g. is it some sort of twist the Evony didn’t bring back the six hearts that she promised to give to the fortune witch or did the writer just forget she was supposed to do that? And if it’s the former, why wasn’t there a panel of said witch being all “Curses! She went back on our deal!”)All that said, I probably would read a sequel, if only to have an answer to that question.2.5/5 rounded down for the heroine not using her cool scythe things at all past the midpoint

    Heartless Prince is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel. It tells the story of orphaned Princess Evony who was and raised in a castle by the parents of Prince Ammon. They’ve been friends for years, and slowly Evony has wanted to become more. When Ammon is attacked by the servants of the witches that oppose his kingdom, Evony is determined to save him by retrieving his heart. I was so excited to be on the tour for this book!

When Ammon is attacked by the servants of the witches that oppose his kingdom, Evony is determined to save him by retrieving his heart. I was so excited to be on the tour for this book! As soon as the novel arrived, I was marveling at the absolutely gorgeous cover. That is the one thing I have to say about this book, I have no complaints about the art. It sucked me in and made me finish the book in less than an hour. I hope I get to see some of this artist’s work in future graphic novels I read. The main complaint I have about this graphic novel is the story. I found it very shallow. Yes, there are witches attacking the kingdom. Why are they attacking the kingdom? How long has this been going on? How are the outside villages affected by the demonic familiars prowling through the woods? I felt like I was reading a short story rather than the start of a graphic novel trilogy. Maybe a better setup would have been to focus more on the early life of Evony and her prince and end the book with the prince being hurt by the witches as a cliffhanger for the next installment of the series. I’m not sure, but all I know was that I left this book feeling like I didn’t have much of a connection to the characters. Evony was a character who had potential. She had a unique backstory and the world she lived in was full of magical creatures controlled by witches. I don’t want to make any strong statements about her specifically as I feel like the next book in this series will expand upon her character greatly. The end of the book set things up for a completely different side of Evony to be shown. Nevertheless, in this book, she is mostly just a girl with no background. A blank slate aside from being friends with and being raised with Prince Ammon, and having clear, strong feelings for him. Her background is hinted at in the short scene about her as a baby, but those events are not really expanded upon much. I hope that more connections are made between her past, her family, and her future in the next book of this series. At this point, I wouldn’t recommend this book to those looking for a new graphic novel to enjoy. If you would like to see beautiful art, check it out, but don’t expect a super in-depth story. I hope that this view changes with the second book in the trilogy, which I might check out at my local library once it is released. I received a copy of this book and this is my voluntary review. Overall Rating: 2 out of 5 books.

    As others have said - the story feels a bit rushed, especially at the end, but I think it's a trilogy? So maybe it'll balance out? But I'm OBSESSED with the art, as I knew I would be since I love Angela De Vito's art. As others have said - the story feels a bit rushed, especially at the end, but I think it's a trilogy?

The character development was good and the world building was great. The book was very short, but it did well to have a well done arc and climax in the story. I’m excited to see a book 2 to this story.The only issues I had with the book are that not a lot of the players were well developed and the time skip kept out a ton of useful details. The book is also really vague in what’s happening unless you read the synopsis.Verdict: It was good!

    Evony is the orphaned princess from the kingdom of Destireth. She is taken in by the royal family of Gallea, and becomes a beloved member of the family. Her ability to detect evil Familiars who try to steal human hearts has motivated Prince Ammon to take her hunting with him for Familiars at night when the rest of the family is in bed. Evony treasures this time with Ammon, and wonders if he could ever think of her as more than a friend.

She is taken in by the royal family of Gallea, and becomes a beloved member of the family. Her ability to detect evil Familiars who try to steal human hearts has motivated Prince Ammon to take her hunting with him for Familiars at night when the rest of the family is in bed. Evony treasures this time with Ammon, and wonders if he could ever think of her as more than a friend. When Ammon is taken and his heart is stolen, Evony must confront the dangers outside Gallea’s walls on her own. Can she find him? Can she save him? And, when she discovers the truth about her powers, what will happen to her relationship with the royal family?Beginning with “Once upon a time,” Heartless Prince is indeed a fairy tale, with noble royals, witches and evil henchmen. I like that the women characters all have special super powers, making them more interesting than many fairy tale characters. The romance is mild, and will appeal to tweens as well as older readers. The graphic art is atmospheric and beautiful, nicely conveying romance, danger, and magic, with a bit of art deco flair.Although the story is nicely tied up at the end, a pictorial detail hints that further adventures could befall Prince Ammon… In many ways, it feels like a familiar fairy tale, and all characters are White.

The first is honestly most of a complement in a round about way… I think this should have been longer. I felt like it needed a little more room for us to learn about the world and the characters since it’s not connected to a book series the way The Steel Prince is. It’s got a whole series of books that it can rely on for that kind of thing. It does a good job in it’s own right, but to a certain degree I think they rely on you alr 3.5I read this is one sitting.

It’s got a whole series of books that it can rely on for that kind of thing. It does a good job in it’s own right, but to a certain degree I think they rely on you already knowing somethings about the world and characters in order to have a connection. The second thing is the plot. Most of the plot was good, although, a bit rushed like I already stated, but there was one glaring plot hole for me. She was supposed to get hearts for the witch, but she didn’t. She just went back to the human world and we never saw the witch again. The last issue is that this felt like it ended on a cliffhanger and I think it’s a standalone.

    I'm glad HEARTLESS PRINCE wasn't a straight-up romance, as suggested by the cover, but rather a story in which other elements were predominant. I liked the eyeball snowflakes and the Wendigo-type character, and the heart room was a creepy touch. I agree with other reviewers who noted how quickly the book wrapped up and wondered if there will perhaps be more to this story.

    This gave me Once Upon a Time/Game of Thrones vibes and honestly I was here for it. I love a book with some good lore and while this book took some time to set up the lore, I feel that it took away from the resolution of the story because it wrapped itself up way too fast for my liking. I did however, like the opening for a sequel.

    I know this is a pretty short graphic novel and it had A LOT of ground to cover, but it needed maybe 10-15 more pages to explain things better. But I still really enjoyed it and I'm curious to see if there's more!

    It wasn’t a terrible novel, but it felt really rushed and there was so much more information that they didn’t give. If you’re looking for something quick to cure your boredom give it a shot, but if you want something good I wouldn’t recommend it.

We have places to be, after all--just don't ask me where we're in such a rush to make it to.
