Book Review: Royal by Anthea Sharp


I love Anthea Sharp. I have been captured and held prisoner to everyone of her books I have read. And I have read all of them except the short stories. I have read her Feyland series and now, all of the available Feyguard series.

These books are so full of magic, wonder, and adorable love stories. It is a YA novel revolving around teenagers but it does not focus on the sex life of these teens, which is a nice change. I read YA novels to get away from all the sex talk that litters most other novels. It’s okay every once in a while, but sometimes I just need a break from it.


Royal is a rich kid. His mom is the CEO of VirtuMax, a company responsible for the best gaming platform and also a game called Feyland. Royal and his friends work together as the Feyguard, a group of gamers that know the truth about Feyland; it’s not always just a game.

While Royal is happy with his friends he can’t help but to be a little envious of his friends Jennet and Tam, who have fallen in love with one another. Royal is starting to believe that he is not meant to fall in love.

A new girl starts at school and Royal is instantly interested. While Royal is falling head over heels for the new girl, his friends are questioning her strange quirks that remind them a lot of the fairy in Feyland. Royal is blinded by his infatuation, but his friends will have his back the whole way.

Roy’s Friends now have to figure out who the new girl is and if she is a threat to the world before it’s too late.

Personal Opinion:

I loved this novel. Of course, I am obsessed with fairies. This book works for me. You have romance, adventure, action…everything you need for a good book. I love the aspect of a fairy falling in love with a human and vice versa. I also enjoyed how Brea (the fairy whose name I forgot to tell you) tries to figure out the unknown world. She is a fairy, thrust into the human world with no guide. It was fun to watch her struggle to understand things that we take for granted. It also made me wish for a more simple life.

The only issue I had was the ending. It made sense, I just wanted something nicer for the ending. Though, I admit, if it had been any thing different I probably would have complained that it was out of context and didn’t follow the rest of the story. I just want super happy endings for everyone. I can’t help my hopeless romantic side.


I have actually decided to stop rating stories. I tend to give most things 5 stars…because there is always something I love about the book that overshadows what I didn’t like about it.

To Read or Not To Read?

You should read this if you love stories of fairies. You could read it without reading any of Feyland or the first Feyguard book. You might get a little lost, but not enough to make too much of a mess. Though, I would suggest reading at least the first Feyguard book. If I am being honest, I think that if you enjoy fairies you should start with the Feyland series and work your way down the line.
