Book review - Twisted Palace by Erin Watt
These Royals will ruin you…
From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.
Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.
Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.
No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.
They may be right.
With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.
Twisted Palace concludes the trilogy that is The Royals. It's been an amazing ride and I wish there could be more! Ella and Reed are just amazing together and I'd love to read more about the other Royals.
Twisted Palace picked up straight away from the ending of Broken Prince. Those two cliffhangers from the end of Broken Prince were expanded upon here. Reed's in deep trouble and Ella fought desperately to try and free him from his troubles.
Ella was unexpectedly taken away from the Royals' household and you could see how that has deeply affected her. But if not for her living under one roof with her Dad and Dinah, she wouldn't have been able to solve the problems at the end of this book.
I wish the author could have explained in detail a few things with regards to ***spoilers*** Steve and Dinah's attempt on his life / Steve and Maria / Brooke's and Dinah's back stories / Gideon and Dinah / Gideon and Sav / the Royal twins and Lauren / Easton... ***spoilers*** Perhaps there may be more books in the future to address these, particularly a book on Easton? The ending was quite satisfactory apart from the points I raised earlier in this paragraph. I just love Ella and Reed together and am so happy to see things are good between them, they definitely deserve their Happy Ever After ending.
Overall, The Royals trilogy has been an amazing read and I wish to read more spin-off books in the future, and wouldn't it be amazing if The Royals make it onto the big screen?? :)
