Fallen Ruler surprised me, as I don't normally go for Sci Fi. I picked it up for my son, but ended reading it myself first. In one go. It has a good balance of suspense, creativity and humour. Looking forward to a sequel, as it certainly leaves a door open for more to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars `Get it out of me! Get it out! Please... I don't want it in me.' 23 May 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Brazilian author Eleanor T. Beaty brings to her writing the sense of magical realism so often associated with South American art and literature. Born in Brazil but having lived in the United States, Switzerland and Argentina, she has witnessed several cultures that she successfully weaves into her novels. Having gained her degree in English Literature she now devotes her time to her chosen specialty - Young Adult Paranormal stories - from her home in Brazil. Spirituality and magic concepts come easily to her: `All my books hold those two themes. Spirits, afterlife and the amazing coincidences, which are anything but. I believe that everything has a reason and understanding those reasons help us deal with the difficult moments.'

Reading Beaty's prose reveals a special affinity for the Young Adult mind. She is able to create extraordinary situations within the context and language of the tone of the times. For those who have read Beaty's other books (this reviewer has had the pleasure of reading only one to date VEILED MIST) the intensity of her fantasy creations will not be a surprise, yet the open of FALLEN RULER in a birthing room in India as a suicidal woman gives birth to a baby assisted by a blue girl who transforms into a monk is so startlingly realistic and eloquently written that by the end of that chapter the reader is glue to the story that follows. The delivered baby from chapter one, Lya, is `unwanted' by her family, and though we suspect she is anything close to human she lives a rather normal human existence until her father's life style results being involved with questionable people and Lya's sister is kidnapped and Lya and her father are transported to India where upon departing the airplane Lya is rescued from the evil men who have captured Lya and her father - her rescuers are monks who transport her to a monastery where Lya finally discovers her origins and the identity of the rescuing monks and must face that face that she is descend from another planet...and to say more in a summary would tarnish the impact of reading this book on your own. Secrets, mysteries, passion, romance, Eastern philosophical keys abound - all in fine Beaty fashion and dotted with enough dark humor to provide relief. Another fine novel from Eleanor T. Beaty. Grady Harp, May 14
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Young Adult Paranormal Novel 12 Jun. 2014
By Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fallen Ruler is my 3rd young adult paranormal novel by Eleanor T Beaty. In Fallen Ruler 16 year old Lya has lived her whole life believing that she is normal human being who happens to be in a very dysfunctional, rather abusive, wealthy family. Her parents can’t remember conceiving her and didn’t want her. Her sister hates her. Her grandmother Nee is the only one who treats her with love and compassion. When her father Walter gets involved in some really nasty business her sister is kidnapped and her world turns upside down. The relationships between the characters are moving and the main plot engaging. I particularly enjoyed the aspects of the story after Lya has learned and accepted her true identity. This book would be ideal for older teenagers as some of the content is a little adult, otherwise an excellent book. I liked the characters so much that I would love to see Beaty write a sequel.
5.0 out of 5 stars I hope there is a sequel 12 Jun. 2014
By Robin Perron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Paranormal novels are among my favorite type of book to read no matter what the target age group is for it. Fallen Ruler is my third young adult paranormal novel by Eleanor T. Beaty and it met all of my expectations.

Lya is a 16 year old girl born to a wealthy family who neither wants her nor loves her. The only person of that family who treats her well is her Grandmother Nee. When her father gets into a really bad business and her sister is kidnapped Lya’s journey towards the truth begins. I loved the relationships set up between the characters as well as the characters themselves. The premise of the book was engaging and I really hope that there is a sequel as I love the characters and think that the setting Beaty created is fantastic. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Things aren't always what (or who) they appear to be. 3 Jun. 2013
By M. A. Whitcomb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
And Lya and her family are no exception.
Imagine, if you can, feeling as though no one in your family wants you. Imagine finding out that they don't.
Then learning that not only are you not really part of that horrible family, but you are not even human!
It all comes together at the end of this delightful sci-fi thriller. And she gets to keep her grandmother.
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept 25 July 2013
By AvidReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked the concept, but much of the writing left me confused. Many times I felt as if parts of the story was 'missing', or a scene would 'jump' without knowing how you got to this section. An author needs to write from the readers perspective. Since I'm not in the writers head, I don't know their intent and don't get it when they don't fill in the gaps. But I did like the story line, and the basic writing was well done.
