What actually happened while reading majority of Twisted Palace:

UNTIL the last 15% or so. That was when all the action FINALLY took place. But I am sad to report that the ending may have been even worse than the lackluster build up.

I am not exaggerating when I say LITERALLY NOTHING happens until the last 15-20% of the book. (view spoiler)
Whew! What a ride this has been! After all the turmoil and drama, we finally get the answers to our questions in 'Twisted Palace'. Of course, they don't come easy and they won't come without widespread repercussions for all of our favorite characters.

Picking up where 'Broken Prince' left off, the Royal household is facing its biggest battle yet. Arrest, murder, dirty judges, blackmail - you name it! With everything that is going on in this book, the return of Ella's supposedly deceased father, S

Twisted Palace is a book I’ve been eagerly anticipating for months. Those of you who have read this series understand me! After the last book, I had my theories, I was a nervous wreck and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen to my beloved characters. I was more than ready to be ruined once again by these Royals…
This house is ridiculously large, ridiculously beautiful, but everyone inside of it is so messed up. Including me. I guess I really am a Royal.

I didn’t expect any of this and my brain is in overdrive now. This society, I’m having a difficult time forming coherent words, I mean what in hell, the things that go down in these books are crazy I’m going out of my mind here.
The things the protagonist has gone through in her 17 years of life are unbelievable and should never have happened, the things she’s had to do to survive in this harsh society are infuriating and see her put on a brave face in society mak

I'm going to miss these Royals.

Alright guys, I have a confession to make. *takes deep breath* Igotanarcandididntknowit. That's right, I got an ARC and I realised it two days after the release date. Why? Because I'm a freaking moron Because I forgot to check my Kindle. You are allowed to throw tomatoes my way.

Fine, that's enough.
That being said, this is probably the most belated ARC review ever written, but you can probably guess what I'm about to say; I devoured Twisted Palace. I did find some

Don't read if you haven't read the previous two books to avoid spoilers.

3.5/ 4 stars!

Is it selfish to say that I want more Royals? Because I do! Man, I can't believe it's over. They've gone such a long way! From hostility to love, all in the span of three beautiful books.

Broken Prince ends with two shocking incidents––(view spoiler). The fragile palace of the Royals continues to crumble and fall
thank goodness my life is relatively free of any drama because this book had enough to last me a couple of years. which means i am most likely going to take a break from this series. i feel like i am just too exhausted with all these teenage shenanigans, and this was a decent enough conclusion to everything that has been happening in the last three books, so i feel okay hitting pause. thanks royal boys - its been fun!

My least favorite book in the series. I mean, I did enjoy it (the last 15% was the best), but the first half was a bit boring. Also, there were too many loopholes in the story and too many eye-roll moments. I didn’t love the heroine and the ending was a bit unbelievable and rushed.

Usually when I want a book really bad and have to wait for it, I end up disappointed. So maybe it's me. It's probably me.

Okay, here’s a thing: I didn’t plan on reading this book, like ever. I was a tiny bit curious about the mystery part, but it was almost an nonsexist interest. Why then did I read the book I hate in advance? Reviews. That was my reason. I wanted to go read spoiler review to find out what was all this fucking bu

Talk about one of the most overwhelming twists of the year. Twisted Palace practically made me sit on the edge of my seat. And I never got to sit back.

I admit I didn't quite trust this book to stun me the way the previous books of the series did to me. See

DNF @ 6%

Twisted Palace is a book I don't hate myself enough to finish. I clearly hated myself enough to read both Paper Princess and Broken Prince. The funniest thing is, I don't seem to have unpopular opinions a lot when it comes to books but when I see people liking this series I want to kill someone.


Now, here's the thing, I did only read 6% of the book. Which may not seem like a lot to you but it took me around two hours to read. Due to this, I can't talk a lot about the plot, so instead I

Well...damn. Color me conflicted. I struggled with my rating for two days after finishing it. Because see, the thing is, I'm freaking conflicted! Am I even making sense here? Of course I'm not! Because I'm conflicted I tells ya! Bah. Just bah.

To say that I've been anticipating this book as much as a virgin's first orgasm would be an understatement. What? Is that not a saying? Well

Finally, we get to all the answers in Twisted Palace, the 3rd book in Erin Watt's The Royals Trilogy.
After not one but two cliff-hangers that ended in Broken Prince, I wondered how much more drama and more twists and secrets and revelations would there be!!!

This book was my least favourite of the three novels. In fact, I totally did not like Twisted Palace. Even the characters I liked before, I started to feel so disappointed in them.

Oh my goodness... What a crazy ride. I'm ruined by these Royal boys but damn, it was so worth it. I have no regrets, none... I loved this journey sooooo freaking much. :-D
Farewell boys, I'm gonna miss each one of you... Oh by the way, maybe I'm gonna miss Ella too,but maybe a little bit... :)

Ps. The Royals Series completed now but we will carry on with Easton's book... OMG this will be amazing. I'm so excited to read his story. <3

WARNING! IF YOU HAVENT READ PAPER PRINCESS OR BROKEN PRINCE THERE WILL BE SPOILERS! If you HAVE read those two books, you should be free from spoilers.

Well, this has been an incredible and wild ride and I am so happy to have been a part of it! Every book has been full of twists and turns and Twisted Palace follows in that tradition.

Wow. Just wow. That is the only thing that came to my mind when I finished this book. The journey these authors took us on to get to the ending was mind-blowing and worth every second of my time. It's not the Royals that will ruin you, it's the authors that created them! If you haven't started this series yet then you are insane and missing out on something spectacular.

“These Royals will ruin you…”


“Twisted Palace” is the highly anticipated conclusion to Erin Watts’ “The Royals” series. After Broken Prince finished with such a massive cliffy, I couldn’t wait to get my hand on this one to find out how this addictive series was going to conclude. I was eagerly awaiting to be ruined by these Royals once again.

Ella has only been living with the Royals for a short time, but she has really become part of the family and loves them all fiercely. Ell

Again, not sure if 2.5 or 3 stars.

These books (meaning the whole trilogy) were ridiculous, the thing is, it doesn't bother me anymore, now it makes me laugh! I had such a good time reading this final installment! I mean, I was still rolling my eyes the whole time, but now I was also laughing (at the ridiculousness of everything), but I had fun! I sure don't know how I feel about this trilogy, but I know I didn't hate the books. I didn't love them either.

The Royals series comes with a WARNING: "These Royals will ruin you..." and it’s especially true if you read the books as they were released. Because you had to wait a couple months for the next book to come out and the anticipation was high. The cliffhangers from the 1st two books made this series one of the most anticipated series of 2016. I personally loved the cliffhangers because it reminded me of the thrill I had as a kid waiting for my birthday to arrive. I loved the buildup of excitement ...more

In the first book of the Royals series, there was a quote who was saying....

"These Royals will ruin you!!!"

...And if anybody who had read this series claims that hasn't been ruined by this bunch of guys will be a liar!!!

God, this was one of the most addictive stories that i have ever read!!! And now, it's over!!!
I'm so happy that i finally had the conclusion of this story but i will miss those Royals!!!! Ella included since she is a Royal in heart!!!

1.) Paper Princess ★★★
2.) Broken Prince ★★

Man, oh, man! That was quite the ride! And, I know that you guys are probably thinking I’m going to be negative because of the two star rating, but I honestly got so much enjoyment from this series.

Twisted Palace is the third book and concluding arc for Reed and Ella’s storyline! At least, I think, because a few of my friends have notified me that Fallen Heir is all about Easton (my favorite Royal, hands down)! So, you guys are safe on putting bets down

“I make an attempt to follow Reed’s lead and lighten the mood. “What was your excuse last week when you ate an entire batch of cookies?”
“That was just me being hungry. Besides, they were cookies. Who needs an excuse to eat cookies?”
“I feel like that’s a sexual question,” Wade chimes in. “And the correct answer is, no one ever needs an excuse to eat cookies.”
“You do need permission, though,” Val says tersely, focusing her gaze on Wade for the first time since he sat down. “And if your mouth is all over someone else’s cookies, then other bakers aren’t going to be interested in offering you their cookies.”
Then she gets up from the table and stomps off.
“Hey!” Wade shouts after her. “I only had those other cookies that one time and only because the baker I wanted to get the cookies from was closed!”
He shoots up from his seat and hustles after Val, leaving Easton, Reed, and me staring after them.
“I have a feeling they aren’t talking about cookies,” Easton remarks.”
