Yay, I didn't have to pull an all nighter.'s only 245 ;)

this was good! I can't say that it's worse or better than the first book. That's okay. I'd rather it be on the same level than worse than the first book.

I really liked getting to know the characters more. We see a different side to both Jocelyn and Jameson, a much stronger and more powerful side. Their relationship in this book was sad....they aren't allowed to be together because of a higher power and then it's because of a prophecy

I found this one kinda flat ... How they always break up then get together ANNOYS me !

Really enjoying this series.

I like the world, the characters, and the conflict. And it was great to see Maggie and Eran :D I miss those guys! I like all the intrigue and the villains are starting to be a lot of fun. I particularly enjoyed the addition of Theleo.

Overall, since Fallen, I think the author's writing has improved. It's still a little awkward at times and I'll say that for whatever reason, the latter 75% of this book was much better than the first 25%, writing-wise. For example, she

Laury Falter made me an instant fan with the Guardian trilogy. When Residue came out, I read it and instantly fell in love with the book and characters. I was highly anticipating Birthright and it did not disappoint. The pacing was wonderful and I loved the development of the connection between Jocelyn and Jameson. It's also great seeing Maggie and Eran again, since I wasn't ready to say goodbye to them after the Guardian trilogy. All around a fantastic read that I couldn't put down. Can't wait ...more

this was great surprise. this book is much better then the first part. the first part introduced to the characters. this one made them alive. the characters have layers they are interesting. the change of pace and twists in plots are believable and desirable. I had great time reading it and will start the third shortly if only to see how the author can stir things up even more. very nice writing, plot, characters

Laury Falter, you genius you. Five stars all around because I adored this book, with my only complaint being our dear Jocelyn. But I'll talk about her later.

In the second installment of Residue, we are still in our lovely New Orleans, and the magic is in the air. Literally. It's everywhere. We get more insight into the Vires, the Sevens, and (shocker) the corruption of the Sevens. If you read Falter's Fallen then you will love the merging of the two worlds in this book. It's tons of fun. The voo

Recommends it for: Everyone
Birthright is an excellent addition to the Residue series. I absolutely love this book. This series is about Witchcraft, forbidden love and an unwanted birthright.

Jocelyn Weatherford has come to terms with the fact that spells and voodoo exist. Jameson Caldwell is her soulmate and most importantly together a very powerful couple; strong enough to defeat the Sevens.

She has a secret and keeps it from Jameson. A secret that is so heartbreaking that ending her relationship seemed like her only optio

Just like Residue (the first book to this Laury Falter series) I loved this book and couldn't put it down. There is a lot of suspense in this book that has you turning page after page. Jameson and Jocelyn's love story gets a bit tragic as Jocelyn figures out the truth about the Caldwell family. We get to know the Caldwell and Weatherford's intentions much more in this book than the last. Although both the families still don't approve of their love, they end up together throughout it. The Vires g ...more

3.5 stars.

I like this series, though I feel like it's more meant for young teens/pre-teens to read. It doesn't seem 'old' enough for the older teens or new-adults. It did have some editing issues. I felt myself at times wishing that the character (main) would listen to me, lol. I also kind of wished that the book felt like it was 'older'/for older teens than for younger. I am not sure what exactly made me feel like this or if I'm the only one.
I will continue the series.

UGHH..The book annoyed me to the max. I had to DNF it because it was too boring, too cheesy ( I don't mind the idea of being a soulmate but it was too over-the-top here) and the unnecessary and meh details bothered me. Jocelyn was'nt a likeable character and Jameson was too plain. Overall,the plot is too dull to my liking.

I loved this series. I didn't really want to read it at first when I realized it was a witch series but it sucked me in. The love story is so sweet but sometimes infuriating because of the chatracters hang ups but it wouldn't last very long if it all fell into place. Read their whole series in less than a week and would read it again!

With the two families pretending to still hate each other to throw off the vires is crazier than ever. They have some prophecies exposed and they Jocelyn cant seem to digest it. Now is the time that Maggie and Eran from the guardian trilogy make an entrance. Maggie assist Jocelyn with something. I like the way Laury Faulter intertwined the characters from both series. Excellent.

Plot - 4/5

Jocelyn and Jameson and destin to bring down the Seven but Jocelyn's birthright says she'll have to kill Jameson. Yet another roadblock for these two. They are forced into some intense lessons by the best voodoo practitioners in the world and it cannot come soon enough.

I liked #2 a lot better. Really liked how the story was told through the housekeepers & I think Jameson is a fun romantic lead. I will read the next 2 books but just need a break from this writing style for a bit.

Great read

After finishing the last book, I devoured this one in a single sitting. I'm hoping to get through the next one just as quickly!

This book ripped my heart to pieces and attempted to put it back together. So many ups and downs and surprising twists that I never saw coming! Loved the appearances by Maggie, Eran, and Battersbee!
