Our thoughts...

I was disappointed with Twisted Palace. I loved the first two books, I loved Reed and Ella; I was waiting on baited breath for them to finally do the deed. I wanted to see them rule the kids at Astor Park. That being said it doesn’t mean the book was bad; it was a 3.75-4 star book for me. I just couldn’t get on board with how Ella and Reed were acting, it wasn’t them.

I felt that Ella lost some of her strength in this book, she didn’t have that spark that she consistently had in Paper Princess and Broken Prince. She was weaker, and I don’t understand why. The Ella in previous books wouldn’t have done this. Oh my god Reed, the guy who fights for fun, was willing to sign a deal that said he was guilty of a crime he didn’t commit.  Why?  He wouldn’t do that; he’d fight till the very end. The two of them as a couple are solid, which was a relief; they truly became a couple in this book and had each others backs.

Steve, oh my god, I wanted to throat punch him. He consistently annoyed the hell out of me. I don’t understand why Ella listened to him. In previous books she would’ve fought or questioned him. It drove me crazy. I feel that bringing Steve back to life only to have the story end the way it did was pointless; he should’ve stayed buried.

The Royals were supposed to be an untied force but where the hell was Gideon this entire book, it’s like he disappeared. In previous books he was at least back for a visit, now he only appears at the funeral. A united front would mean ALL Royals.

This book felt more like a set up for other characters stories than the conclusion to Ella and Reed. I will say that I was happy that they finally sealed the deal; they are at least heading in the right direction for a HEA. I  had such high hopes for this book.
