REVIEW: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

Shel: This is a fairly accurate depiction of what I looked like when I finished Fallen Heir by Erin Watt: 

Court: Right girl! Mind. Blown. Just when I think these girls can't mess with my mind even more...they DO! And I die. And I cannot wait for whatever they give us next because it will BE AWESOME! 

Shel:I mean, SERIOUSLY, Erin do you do this to me with these Royals?!! I go in all innocent and curious: 

Shel: and then I get all wrapped up in the drama and crazy that seems to follow all Royals: Court: I love that their world is one that I cannot even comprehend...and they do insane things...but they're really beautiful at their heart, and even if it takes themselves even a really, really, really long time to figure that out...they're one loyal bunch at the end of the day. 

Shel: and it never, ever fails....I end up with a blown mind and a bad case of the book hangovers:


Court: Agreed. It went by way too fast, and now I feel the need to re-read the other books so I can stay in this world longer! 

Shel: All of this to say that I loved getting in Easton's head...and what a fucked up head it is. He's so much of what I thought he would be and so much not at alllll what I thought he'd be. He's such a jackhole sometimes and other times he's so in need of a hug and some love and reassurance that I'm not sure how I feel about him. I guess the best way to describe him is a lovable hot mess. This boy manages to fuck some shit up and all I can say is damn, I hope the Erin Watt duo writes him in some major help/therapy in book two. Court: He's quite complicated, isn't he? I really enjoyed him in the other two books because he's always the fun guy, and always the one that tries to lighten things up when things are really going sideways but now being in his head we can see he is way more complicated and way more effected by things that have happened and so completely loyal that I just love him.
Shel: What? Court: EEP! 
Shel: Did I not mention there's a book TWO?!!! Yeah...get ready to die of angst at the end because the queens of the cliffhanger are going to leave you tottering on the edge. Court: I think I'm dealing okay just because WE GET MORE! I'm always excited about that, and I figured that to get through everything they needed to get through (because we have a lot to delve into, y'all) that there would be more. I am quite excited about it! 

Shel: But enough of that, let's also talk about Hartley. This girl is really the perfect foil for Easton; she's not interested in his antics at all--or at least she isn't at first. The more she hangs out with him,though, the more she softens towards him and, unfortunately, also gets sucked into the drama that comes with being anything with a Royal. Plus, she's got drama of her own--how her drama is resolved in the next book is also something I'll be very interested in reading. Court: Ugh, she's complicated too! There's too much complicated going on! It was interesting because he is persistent to get to know her, and they really are like oil and water in some ways...but so alike in others. I can't say too much just because "spoilers" yo, but I really liked her as a character and feel like she's really going to REALLY get into the thick of things in the next book.

Shel: Finally, the bitches of Astor Prep are out and in a full effect and Erin Watt can write the best teenage bitches with the best drama ever. I was totally sucked in. How one wench in particular gets her comeuppance is something I cannot wait to read. I hope they mess her up sooooo good. (I'm a horrible person, aren't I). Court: NO! She is. SHE IS, SHELLEY! Ugh, it hurts so good to read about these people and the things they do and say. I just can't even, y'all...We got a taste of it before, and a new queen bee is looking to take over and it's going to probably hurt before it stops hurting so I'm trying to prepare myself already! 

Shel: With glimpses of Ella and Reed, Easton and Savannah, Lauren (don't even get me started on her. OMG.) and the twins, Fallen Heir is a novel that has me thirsty for more. I cannot wait to see how Easton and Hartley deal with this situation and what the consequences of all of this will be. If any of my guesses are correct, I have a feeling it's going to get way more messed up before it gets cleaned up and I'm ready. Court: YES! I'm ready too. That gif though, hahahaha. Things were really starting to spiral and ramp up with where they ended things, but definitely appreciated how things were developing. I really need more of our favorite characters! And things are going to get even more complicated if I can read this foreshadowing correctly (just so you know, I usually can't!) but we'll seeeeee!!!!! 



These Royals will ruin you.

Easton Royal has it all: looks, money, intelligence. His goal in life is to have as much fun as possible. He never thinks about the consequences because he doesn’t have to. 

Until Hartley Wright appears, shaking up his easy life. She’s the one girl who’s said no, despite being attracted to him. Easton can’t figure her out and that makes her all the more irresistible. 

Hartley doesn’t want him. She says he needs to grow up. 

She might be right. 

Rivals. Rules. Regrets. For the first time in Easton’s life, wearing a Royal crown isn’t enough. He’s about to learn that the higher you start, the harder you fall.

Warning: This book has a cliffhanger. The story will be resolved in Cracked Kingdom, due out January 2018.
