    1. This reminded me of the concept for the "Selection" and the vibe of "Princess Diaries" in its own way it was easy to read but overall fell flat for me. I couldn't feel anything for the characters but the plot was interesting so I pressed on.DNF at page 136Another case of "its not you book its me" Makes me wish some of these books had been around when I was a teen. I would have gobbled this up I bet and annoyed the librarian asking for the next ones.Buddyread with my good friend Melissa

    3. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Royal Replicas by Michael Pierce is a young adult sci-fi romantic drama written in first-person (with the exception of the Prologue and Epilogue which are both in third-person). The book is well written, flows well, and is confusion free. The pace is steady and reveals information to the reader at a rate that is neither overwhelming or boring. This is not an action-packed story, it is a drama.The point-of-view character is [...]

    4. Wonderful book. Victoria has served the Duke and Duchess all her short life, not a great life for one so young. Then a summons from the Queen. Don’t miss out on this superb story.

    5. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.When I first read the plot I was terribly intrigued. Too bad I found myself reading what felt like a mash up between The Selection, Twilight & The Hunger Games.Truth is, I practically have only about two positive things to say about Royal Replicas :1. The cover is amazing2. The pages fly byUnfortunately I found the characters flat and dull and the book felt full of stereotypes and senseless v [...]

    6. Opening line intrigues you from the start, making you want to know more. “Beatrice Ramsey stood against the wall by the bookshelf while the doctors were working on her daughter; the girl was still lying unconscious from the procedure and so peaceful lying in her bed.”Author Michael Pierce's style is brisk but not brusque; most of the time gets right to the point and has a grasp of grammar and spelling- shame nowadays that’s something you have to take note of.The setting is in a dystopian f [...]

    7. Click the logo for the full review.The Selection meets Twilight (at least in my opinion).WARNING: Spoiler alertWhen I agreed to review this, I was moved by the summary. I was intrigued. Sure, the plot wasn't very unique considering what it reminded me of, but I still wanted to see what kind of adventure this would take me on. Let me start off by saying that I do not intend to be mean in the slightest; these are my opinions and thoughts that I had while reading the book. First off, let me start o [...]

    8. Wow, this book went beyond my expectations.I'll start off by saying that there is some detailed child abuse in this story. Just to warn people that are sensitive to the matter. It's mostly whippings gone to far. I did not like the abuse in the story, but it did make the story more complete and rounded. You really feel for the character and understand how much winning and over coming it all means to them.I saw some previous reviews comparing it to Twilight, but I don't think it's anything like Tw [...]

    9. **I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**This was a lighter dystopian read that is perfect for fans of royalty in their dystopian novels.I was really drawn into the suspense of the plot. Trying to figure out why Victoria was called in with the other girls to replace Amelia kept me on the edge of my seat. Throughout the novel I was coming up with all these conspiracy theories which was a l [...]

    10. This was a rollercoaster of a book, a lot of plot twists even though some of them was pretty obvious. I really liked this book, but it reminded me a lot about The Selection book.I’m really excited to read what’s happening next! Can’t wait to buy it! :)

    11. One word. AMAZING. This book was interesting from the start and I absolutely love Victoria. I thought the ending was going to be a cliché but WHAM! no. it. didn't. I really hope there is going to be another book!! :)

    12. 3/5 StarsWarning: Some mildly graphic depictions of physical abuse, and potential depictions of sexual abuse (it was almost hard to distinguish so giving warning just in case).Sigh, I actually had really high hopes for this novel. The premise sounded so intriguing. It was essentially a Sci-Fi selection, where the girls competing are clones of a dead princess. However, it became brutally underwhelming and annoying.We meet Victoria as she is getting "reset" (a term that, at least in this instance, [...]

    13. Recensione in italiano sul blog (link profilo)---------- PLOT & CHARACTERS Servant of the Dukes of the 24th Ward, Victoria grew up hoping for an escape from the place where she was treated so badly. The Duke, in fact, makes her life a hell with psychological and physical torture, and although she loves other members of the Ramsey family, she hopes that sooner or later all this will end. Her get-away is a message from Queen of Westeria in person who calls her to the palace to take the plac [...]

    14. DNF 43%Confession time - I recieved a free e-copy of his book in exchange for an honest review. However, as you can see, this didn't influence my rating or feedback in any way, shape or form.The story started out promisingly enough and had an interesting premise, however it suffered in my eyes from an lacklustre protagonist and a big dollop of misogyny. The idea of a poor, put-upon everygirl who turns out to be a long lost princess is fairly standard, so I loved the twist that this everygirl was [...]

    15. Seventeen-year-old Victoria has been a house servant for the Sandalwoods for as long as she can remember. So when a message from the Queen is delivered to Victoria it comes as a shock. What would Queen Westeria want from a basic house servant? The message is that Princess Amelia is dead and she is the princesses daughter. Victoria packs her bags and heads to the palace to live her life as a princess. However, when she gets to the palace she finds out that she's not the only one who has been told [...]

    16. Plot: Set many years in the future in a dystopian Regency, Victoria Sandalwood has spent her life being treated as a second class citizen and abused by her foster family. This all changes when a messenger drone from the capital comes to announce that Victoria is actually the daughter of the queen. Upon arriving to the palace Victoria realizes that she is just one of many clones and must complete in a bachelor style competition for the heart of Prince Byron and a place as the next queen.Recommend [...]

    17. 3.5 Stars in my SkyRoyal Replicas is a strange sort of amalgamation of a few different things. Take the competition part of The Selection, the sci-fi elements from Orphan Black and a lot of Luce's indecisiveness from the Fallen series and to be honest you're still not even close, but heading in the right direction when it comes to describing Royal Replicas.Once a servant, now the daughter of a Queen, Victoria Sandalwood finds herself abruptly thrust into a dangerous game with the ultimate prize [...]

    18. Following the prequel 'Reset', 'Royal Replicas' sees Victoria Sandalwood summoned to the palace, leaving behind her life as basically a servant to the Ramseys. She is told she is actually Princess Amelia's younger sister and is soon to be married to Prince Byron. When she reaches the palace, however, Victoria finds that she is one of seven identical girls who will have to compete to replace the deceased Amelia and marry the Prince. I enjoyed reading this for the most part. It was an interesting [...]

    19. Part dystopian, part fairytale-ish. There's something to be said about cloning and giving the clones the same memories as the original. With Victoria, she doesn't know any different other than being the adopted daughter of a Duke and Duchess in a dysfunctional family. Set in a dystopian-like world where royalty still ruled the land, Victoria only knows that she's the begotten child of a Duke who abuses her and lives a life of semi-luxury. But she has moments of flashbacks and memories that pop u [...]

    20. Book Review by Jessica LucciRoyal Replicas by Michael PierceMy rating: 3 of 5 starsJuly 27, 2017Victoria is an 18 year old living in a post-modern world with her abusive foster family. Like Cinderella, she is suddenly transported to the prospect of becoming royalty. She must choose not only what is best for herself, but also what can help those people she has left behind. Two very different suitors complicate her vision and ultimately, she realizes she must be true to her sisters if she wants to [...]

    21. Once I started to read it was difficult to close the book. I wanted to know what was coming next, how Victoria would react and act. Because when your life is on the line reaction is often too late. I liked how we were seeing different facets of the girls and of the other characters. Some plot lines were predictable but it was okay and did not help to reveal the outcomes of the story. Another thing that bothered me is the circle between the guys: even if part of her body remembers Kale she should [...]

    22. The bachelor with a twist. I enjoyed reading this. Read about 78% through in 6 hours but had to put it down to get some sleep. Story about Victoria Sandalwood and her journey through a Bachelor like competition. She is completing for the heart of Prince Byron and the title of Princess. She has her memory wiped of the past several months because she has fallen for a boy she wasn't supposed to. She survives her surrogate fathers abuse long enough to escape to the palace where she thinks she will f [...]

    23. Wow, what a story. You know a book was worth the read, when you start out confused, get even more confused, and then when everything starts to make sense, you don't know who to root for Damn! This book will be haunting me so much and I cannot wait to delve into the next installment, which will be coming out the 15th of October. First off, Michael's writing is superb. You will be swallowed into a world within ours, set years later, and you'll want to never leave. He impressively weaved the plot i [...]

    24. This review is part of the blog tour from YA Bound Blog Tours. Victoria Sandalwood lives with Duke and Duchess Ramsey. She has lived with them all her life, but she has never been treated as a daughter. She has been banished to the cellar and is constantly punished for silly things, resulting in her being beaten by Master Ramsey. One day, she gets a message from Queen Hart that says she is her daughter and must return to the castle to marry a prince. Victoria is shocked at this news but also ha [...]

    25. Review on my blog: rimpysreads.wordpress/201This novel gave me such a The Bachelor vibe. It was a fun story with a cool dystopian vibe to it.I was honestly very surprised by how intriguing and interesting this novel turned out to be. I could not put it down and sped through the 400+ pages in a day or so.The main character, Victoria, was a very fun character to follow. She went through a lot throughout this novel and was always very strong, which I really appreciated.I’d like to mention that th [...]

    26. This book was very different from what I expected. The main character is Victoria Southwood, a young woman living with the family of Duke Ramsay. The relationships of the Ramsay family with Victoria are very complicated. But it's the relationship between Victoria and the youngest daughter, Mina that that really shows the depth of the characters.As the title implies, Victoria is a dopleganger for Princess Amelia, the only daughter of the Queen, another complicated person. And not at all what one [...]

    27. If you liked the Selection series, then you would enjoy this book- a little more chilling however. A young girl has endured being raised by an awful man- She has been treated as a servant and had little love except for Mina, her "sister". The mother turns a blind eye to what her husband does to her. Earth has been transformed and there is a Queen who decided to send her children to live with various families and then brought them back to the capital to win the affection of a prince of Easteria. [...]

    28. So there is physical abuse, and defintely sexual abuse is highly hinted at - so for those that this might trigger a response - I am warning you.What to say without giving to much of the story away - the ruler of the land, her daughter has some kind of "genetic sickness" - and being the bitch she was - she cloned her child - 8 times - had surrogates in 8 districts actually give birth to these cloned daughters and then raise them until their 18th birthday.So she summons all 8 daughters, to the cas [...]

    29. Royal Replicas- outstanding Amazing storyline and the characters : so real and likeable. I was so sad when I finished reading and read the last 7 chapters again. I can't wait for the next book and I hope it is really long. I was engrossed from beginning to end. I appreciated the superior quality of writing . As well as correct grammar , varied and complex sentence structures, and educational vocabulary , Mr Pierce used unique and traditional wording , avoiding the overused and trite expressions [...]

    30. I wanted a lot more out of this, because the concept is awesome. But it needs to ground dialogue more-There's a lot of talking heads and then blocks of description and sensory. There's hints of really awesome world building, but nothing ever really developed from it. There were redundant scenes that could have been cut, and the character development could have fleshed out from there. Great concept, just needs refined better. (OK I know, editor brain, but really. I can see a lot of potential in t [...]
