A series of natural disasters has decimated the earth. Cut off from the rest of the world, England is a dark place. The sun rarely shines, food is scarce, and groups of criminals roam the woods, searching for prey. The people are growing restless. When a ruthless revolutionary sets out to overthrow the crown, he makes the royal family his first target. Blood is shed in Buckingham Palace, and only sixteen-year old Princess Eliza manages to escape. Determined to kill the man who destroyed her family, Eliza joins the enemy forces in disguise. She has nothing left to live for but revenge, until she meets someone who helps her remember how to hope-and love-once more. Now she must risk everything to ensure that she does not become... The Last Princess.
This was a really fantastic debut book! I enjoyed it a ton, it was really interesting, and I just had to read it! I really enjoyed reading about Eliza, she was such a great character to read about! If she'd been in a regular world, she might've been different, but she was in this violent world!
I don't know what the borders of this England were, because I can see England being cut off from the rest of the world, it is an island, after all, albeit a bit one! But my question is, what about Scotland? My memories of this book are a bit blurry!
I really enjoyed this dystopian world, it was really dark, and I could see it happening, all of it, it did feel real. And that, that was just a bit scary! But a bit thrilling, too, because it's a book, so while it could happen, it most likely won't. And that's a good thing!
That was a very victorious ending! Beating the bad guy, getting the guy, and maybe making some peace for her country! That was a really great ending, and just really fantastic to read! I enjoyed it a ton! Very happy for her, but it is a series, so more conflict is coming!
But yeah for the series, because that means more, yeah!
