    This book tackles on subjects about love, loss, heartbreak, trauma, depression, and healing. Some of the pieces may be triggering because it has dark themes but overall Cynthia Go shines light on the topic of hope in the end.

    Her writing style is very simple, raw and magical. I just love this book, and I am looking forward to her next collection. It truly is a unique piece of literature.

    Let me be the first to say that this book is a success.

    Hearts and Empires is divided into 5 parts:

    (I) Love & Heartbreak

    (II) Tales & Magic

    (III) Grim & Darkness

    (IV) Healing & Fire

    (V) Love Letters To The Dead

    After reading this, I honestly debated which part I liked more and decided I liked them all equally. I couldn't just pick one. The emotions in each part were raw. A few words conveyed thousands of unspoken feelings.

    (V) Love Letters To The Dead

    After reading this, I honestly debated which part I liked more and decided I liked them all equally. I couldn't just pick one. The emotions in each part were raw. A few words conveyed thousands of unspoken feelings.

    Each part, each prose/poetry left me with a longing. It left me wondering the fate of the individuals. I could feel their pain, their loss, their love, their longing. Some, where just magical, especially the Tales & Magic, it was that good. And some were just dark.

    "Count my scars gently for it still hurts" made me so emotional. The single piece spoke volumes and gave me a full view into her painful past filled with agony and I felt my heart ache for her. I can list many more like "Forest Fire", "I love you as certain dark things are to be Love", "Love Letters to the dead", "Doubtful Heart", "Tell me something I didn't know", the list goes on. The beautiful choice of words made the reading experience delightful.

    I've read a very few poetry and I can honestly say that this collection had my attention and it's a page turner, each word slowly seeping through your mind and settling down there. They are short and sweet.

    I highly recommend this.
