The Last Princess
Author: Galaxy Craze
Rating: 2 star
Happily ever after is a thing of the past.
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 to love—once more. Now she must risk everything to ensure that she not become... The Last Princess.
Review: The triumph seemed far too easy, the ending was kind of stupid, and the book just went way too fast. It was like: They went to the ball, their dad was killed, Mary and Jamie are kidnapped, Eliza joins the Tudor army, she escapes, she creates a resistance, and she saves her siblings. It went by too quickly to seem plausible, even in Everything's Possible Book World.
