Lana forms a secret order of women knights to fulfill her father's final request: find the queen who was thought to be dead and return her to the throne.
Lana Crewe is a strong, fiercely driven seventeen year old living in a village ruled by fear. With their king and queen both dead, strife and division have taken hold. Ruthlessly attacked by an Order called Talons, Lana's father is fatally stabbed. Before he dies, he imparts upon Lana a directive to save the statue of Saint Peter, and tells her that the queen yet lives. Now it is up to Lana to unravel the mystery of Saint Peter and bring an end to all of the war by finding the queen.
A medieval tale of hope and mystery, The Last Order takes upper teenage angst and spins it on its head. You'll be gripping this book as hard as it will be gripping you.
I wish that I'd had a physical copy of this book. Because then the last paragraph would've come true, because this was a very gripping book! But since I had a PDF that I was reading on my computer. And it's kinda difficult to grip a computer!
The thing about this book that caught my interest right away was the synopsis. I mean, a strong, kick ass heroine, in a historical setting, what with the Kings and Queens, and Orders-Templars, anyone? That's what I think of, history and orders! So having a female order, that sounded really awesome!
While it's historical, it's also fantasy, so we got world building with the character building, and what with the action, they just combined those elements so very well, and as a bonus, the writing was just brilliant! I loved every word!
For me, I hardly ever, like ever, try to guess the ending of the book, because I'm so absorbed in the book, that I just know what's going on now, that I don't have the brain power for wondering about the next. And this book just kicked that up a level! So awesome!
I enjoyed this book so much! It was so entertaining, I enjoyed everything about this book!
