Goodreads Description:

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.

My Thoughts:


I read The Last Princess in literally one night. It’s one of those books that instantly has you hooked you and before you know it you’re done! It’s not an incredibly long book, only about 300 pages so that also played a factor. The Last Princess is fast paced from beginning to end and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Eliza is a strong female heroine. She did what she felt she needed to do without worrying about the consequences. Even though, Eliza was seeking revenge, you can’t dislike her for it because she is so clearly doing it for all the right reasons. She does want revenge for her family but she also wants to stop the resistance from completely taking over. She wants to save her people. She wants to make things right. How can you not love a character that’s trying to do that?

I liked Wesley. He was sweet and always helped Eliza when she needed him. More than once Wesley puts himself in danger to help her. I liked their relationship, however, I did have one issue with it. I felt that their relationship was rushed and that they liked each other without a reason. I guess one of the reasons Eliza fell for him was because he was always so kind to her and always helped her out. Other than that we don’t really get a reason for why she likes him. Wesley we have even less understanding for his instance attraction to her because we aren’t allowed to see in his head like we are Eliza.

Like I said earlier, The Last Princess was very fast paced and full of action. There is never a dull moment. I loved watching Eliza struggled to get her revenge and make things right. There was also a nice little twist at the end that I really liked and made the story even more interesting. Plus, it gave me more insight into some of the characters actions.

The Last Princess is supposed to be a series and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I think Galaxy Craze did an excellent job creating the first book in this series and I know it will only get better as the series continues.

  3. I totally agree with you! I really enjoyed The Last Princess. The action, romance and conflicting emotions were just so well-written. The only thing that really bothered me was that it was too short.

    Great review! Definitely loved your descriptions of the characters.
