Royalteen. The Heir
“This book must be a hit! Feelgood, humorous royal goodies and teenage issues. The Heir is a kinderegg of a young adult book. (…) The end is like a fairy tale happy ending, until the last sentence. I jump in my chair – and literally scream for a follow up. The authors must hurry up. I can’t understand otherwise than the book will be a hit.”
Cathrine Krøger, Dagbladet, 5 out of 6 stars
“The Heir is a social wet dream of a young adult book. It’s Gossip Girl meet Crown Princess Mette Marit’s past, meet little Marius as a teenager, meet the tv series SKAM.”
Oda Faremo Lindholm, VG, 5 out 6 stars
“The YA The Heir is a modern Cinderella story from the tv series SKAM’s neighbourhood. No wonder publishers were fighting to win the book.”
Anne Cathrine Straume, NRK

The Heir is first book in the YA series Royalteen by Randi Fuglehaug and Anne Gunn Halvorsen. Second title, Prince Charming, will be published Spring 2021.
When prince Karl Johan, Kalle amongst friends, and newcomer Eileen start to develop warm feelings for each other, Eileen is charmed but also sceptic, for many reasons. Party prince Kalle is a regular figure in the tabloids and the gossip blogs – one of them was run anonymously by Eileen herself, until she was exposed. Eileen is painfully aware that dating the future king might put them both in an impossible situation and she has not told Kalle or anyone else about her even bigger secret, which is also the reason why she moved from her hometown. The fourteen month old kid at home is not her baby brother. He is her son.
