5 “This was Everything” stars
The Royal sovereignty has been a reign of heartache, privilege and tragedy, a family tree with damaged limbs and painful roots. The Royal princes each have their own distinctive ways of dealing with the cracks in their empire’s foundation. Easton Royal is the life of the party, the wild and reckless prince who wears his crown proudly and loudly in the hopes of distracting his socialite peers from discovering just how imperfect life in the Royal palace actually is. But here in Fallen Heir, the tarnished crown comes off and the broken boy beneath is revealed to readers in a way we’ve never seen through his own POV. It’s as crazy and chaotic and delicious as you’d expect. It’s also shocking and explosive and emotional in ways you can’t. Fallen Heir, in all of it’s humor and heartache, is an addictive read from start to JAW DROPPING finish and I. COULD. NOT. PUT. IT DOWN.
I read this book *mostly* smiling from ear to ear. As ridiculous as Easton can be, he IS hilarious, and he IS kind of adorable, and he’s so full of himself it’s almost charming. The sun rises and sets around Easton Royal, his view of the world is an unbelievably egocentric one. He behaves exactly the way you’d imagine a privileged, indulgent, superficial, damaged teenager would when the world is at his fingertips, where he’s always been able to simply pillage and conquer his way through life. He’s quick witted and flirtatious and it’s easy to see why Hartley Wright doesn’t take him seriously, but at the same time, it’s also impossible to understand how she doesn’t climb him like a tree on the spot. In those other moments where I want smiling like a kid in a candy store, I spent infuriated with him because to Easton Royal, life is one big game. He can play anyone with his charm or his checkbook and they instantly bow to his royal highness. It’s both hilarious and frustrating watching him make a complete mess of everything with his antics. Fallen Heir is precisely that… Easton’s mess, his spiral, his fall from grace.
Fallen Heir is a delicious mix of humor, longing, heartfelt emotion and infuriating drama. Easton Royal and Hartley Wright are two sides of the same coin, both determined to keep their respective family secrets under lock. Their slow burning dynamic along with their need to keep secrets kept me turning these pages hungrily, dying to see when it would all explode… or implode depending on how it all went down. And explode it did. I couldn’t read this book fast enough. It’s an adrenaline rush being caught up in their royally messed up world. My chin was often on the floor, my stomach was in knots, I couldn’t look away. Falling right in line with every book that came before, Fallen Heir is an addicting, twisted, volatile experience from beginning to end. It’s fun and entertaining, light at times, heavy at others, always consuming, always unpredictable, never easy, always unexpected. Once again, Erin Watt left me blown away. Their writing is as seamless as ever in this book, their storytelling on another level. This book is full of so many *holy shit* moments, I don’t even know where to begin. Just buckle up and brace yourselves to be royally ruined all over again.
