Summary/ product description: “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.”

My Rating: êêêê

My Review: This book was really good. It was pretty unique because it’s a dystopian story from the perspective of a girl who’s the princess of England. And it’s set in England. English royalty plus post-apocalyptic setting is a pretty awesome combo. Eliza’s a pretty strong character, and a really great narrator. The story isn’t boring at all. There’s even some romance in it, and betrayal. The plot of saving her siblings from execution, and making sure Hollister doesn’t become king, is also interesting. There’s a lot of description, and everything’s easy to picture in your head. The decimation by natural disasters may not be unique, but most of the story is. I recommend this book to people who like stories about royalty and dystopian/post-apocalyptic books.

Cover Art Review: I really love this cover. It’s so eye catching. Mostly because of the colors. And I love how they photo-shopped London into a post-apocalyptic version of itself.
