But now this book is changed as a companion story (along with the current two books in the series, which are White Foxes and Roses Bones). I'm currently writing the main book. It will have a different plot. It's the reboot version.
Stay tuned. :)(less)

I don’t really know what to say about this book, because I really struggled with it, but at the same time I think the biggest problem was that English wasn’t the author’s first language, and a lot of the book didn’t make se

Beautiful writing! I love the story, it is solid and strong. Royal Arcanum is about the seeking of Cathy's identity crisis that leads to her finding of her royal bloodline, and the mysterious world that revolves around her. I don't know why some people here on Goodreads leave discouraging feedback. I came across this book on Wattpad, I love it. Especially this is a fantasy series, and I always love supernatural aspect in most stories. So this is a must read everybody! I'll be sure to finish othe ...more

I first read this book from Wattpad... Great adventure, and the plot twist when Cathy realized that she born from a royal family makes me breathless, I mean she got everything in her grasp, Cathy is destined to be something special... I'm really drowning throughout this story... I hope the author will write the next book on Wattpad again... 😊 ...more

Actual rating - 2.5

This wasn't a book I could enjoy unfortunately. I found it quite hard to follow at times, and I felt bored for quite a lot of it, as the book really struggled to keep my interest.

Overall, Not a very enjoyable read for me.

Thank you Keefe R.D for the opportunity to read your book. I am kind of disappointed in the way the book turned. I had such expectations for the book because the description sounded interesting. However, it was not for me. The characters were lacking for me. Also, it was confusing and boring.

The major issue for me was writing. The chapters were too long and I felt like I did not understand what the plot was about. It was hard t

(I received a copy from the author, In exchange for an honest review.)


I had a lot of problems with this book, but mostly with the grammar. It was hard to follow the storyline and understand what was going on. I personally think the author should focus on perfecting her english, I do believe that english is not her first language. And it pretty clear that she struggles with past and present tense in her writing, which is one of the reasons it was hard focusing on the storyline. I liked the story
