Twisted Palace was a perfect read! I loved this series so much. I was so excited to read this book and especially after how book 2 ended with a massive cliffhanger, again. Nonetheless, I am glad this book lived up to my expectations! You can read my review of book 1: Paper Princess, here and book 2: Broken Prince, here.

This book also starts right where it is left off. Whereas Reed has been dragged to the police station, Steve makes his appearance as the surprising visitor. Everything is pretty much a mess in Ella’s life, as much as she believes in Reed’s innocence, she can’t shake the nagging feeling that he isn’t telling her the whole truth, on top of that being around Steve is making the scenario a whole lot complicated. Will Ella be able to find the truth in time or will she lose Reed this time forever?
I enjoyed the thrilling ride that this book provided. The plot managed to hold my attention from the very first page until the end. We are thrown right into the chaotic situation after Reed is arrested and Steve makes an unexpected appearance. Gosh, that was right in the face! I surely wasn’t expecting that. So many things happened, it was pretty hard to put this book down, I managed to finish it in two sittings.
I loved Reed and Ella! Things got pretty intense between them and I loved their romance! I really enjoyed their character growth. It felt so great to see Ella finally finding her family among the Royals. And as always, I can’t forget Easton, he’ll always have a special place in my heart!
The plot thickened with Steve’s arrival. I didn’t like him, at all. Even when the others told her he was trying his best to make up for the lost time, I didn’t or most importantly, couldn’t believe him. Things got more and more complicated when all the blames were thrown upon on Reed. And then there was the she-witch, Dinah. So many wanted to harm the Royals. Though I already predicted the plot twist in the middle, it felt really good to be proven right! But it was still hard to believe what “that person” was going to get out of trouble at any cost.
Overall, Twisted Palace wrapped up pretty nicely! I enjoyed this series so much. I’m very much excited to read the story of the other Royals, especially after some things commenced in this book. The writing was smooth and beautiful and the pace was even throughout this book. I can’t wait to read mooore by Erin Watt!
