Let me preface by saying how much of a fussy bitch I am, I rarely read trilogies because I always find that the middle books are fillers, and don’t really add much to the story in terms of plot and excitement etc. This was not entirely the case here, however, and there was a lot of unravelling of secrets going on that really do make you question everyone’s actions and motives, it was entertaining and clever, and the only reason I rated it a 3.75 was because I didn’t love it as much as Paper Princess, but only because of my fastidious ways. I truly adore this series, it’s fresh and intriguing, and whilst it’s nothing new in the young adult genre, it’s somehow unique and fun.
Broken Prince starts off exactly where we left Paper Princess and the ginormous cliffhanger that had Ella reeling from Reed’s betrayal. This book focuses on what continues to be Reed’s redemption, and many, many secrets are revealed with regards to the two witches, Brooke and Dinah, and their plans to bring down the Royals.
“From this point on, they’re my enemies. They’re the prison guards and I’m the inmate. They’re not my friends or my family. They’re nothing to me.”
My favourite thing about this series, is that it is so character driven, I love all of them, good and bad. Elle our heroine is super sassy and strong, and I love that about her, plus we have all of the Royal brothers, their dad Callum, and friends Val and Wade to add to the mix. I can’t wait to read more, I am majorly excited to unravel all of the plot twists and hopefully have the bad guys get their comeuppance.
“I’m done playing games, Ella. No other girls exist in this world for me. If you see me talking to one, know that I’m talking about you.”
p.s I still love Easton the best. He’s my perfect tortured hero with abandonment issues, he so needs me <3
