Chapter by Chapter's review of The Last Princess
Boy was I wrong. Immediately after the first couple pages, we watch as Princess Eliza goes on a hunt to find her sickly younger brother, Jamie, and to prevent him from committing suicide. That opening chapter not only tugged on my heartstrings, but it had me falling in love with the story even more so. Death was a concept that was constantly used in the novel. People are dying of starvation and illness, and eventually people who supported the royal family are murdered as well. As the novel progressed, I have to admit that the story did not manage to lose my attention. At. All. Every single detail cannot be missed! Galaxy Craze wrote the story with so much beautiful detailing and thoughtfulness that you feel compelled to read more and I can assure you that you won’t want to miss a thing.
Personally, one of my favorite scenes was during the Buckingham Palace overthrow, when the Tudor army murders the king and kidnaps Eliza’s family. From that moment on in the novel, the reader really gets to see that Eliza is a much stronger, smarter and braver character than we all assumed she was from the beginning. Especially when, to save her siblings, Eliza joins the Tudor army where we see just what Cornelius Holister plans on doing to the world to help “save” it. As a good quarter of the novel was spent from Eliza’s POV within the Tudor army, we were introduced to two new characters. One an antagonist: Portia. The other a love interest: Wesley. I found that the romance between Wesley and Eliza was adorable; it was cute and also dangerous. The only thing that I was cautious towards was my cut instinct on the fact that Wesley might not be exactly who he says he is….
I would recommend this book to (obviously) fans of dystopia and as well as people who enjoy the story of Anastasia because really, that’s what this story reminds me a lot of. I cannot wait for the sequel to the novel, especially since the novel ended on such a dramatic high note that tells us that Eliza’s story is far from over…

I was left very dissapointed. There were many times that i had to put the book down and walk away because it was getting to the point that i no longer wanted to read it. I came in with such high expectations and finished the book wanting my $10 back. I do NOT recommend this book.

Not really good
It wasn't really worth reading. The events were forced and the plot was terrible. Half the time I only continued reading to see if the book would get better. Not worth ten dollars. The only really good part was the story line. It was orignal and creative.

I really didn't like the book as much as i wanted too. The plot felt like it was rushed, interesting events where forced and characters popped in and out- i couldn't keep track. I found it hard to like the main character and i felt like she fell in "love" with Weasley in a short period of time. I didn't like her family as much as i should've and that made it hard for me to like the book even more because the whole thing was about saving them. Also i think that the random fast forwards a couple weeks into the future were annoying. And the whole rivalry between her and Portia was stupid and unexplained. Other than that the overall storyline was good, it had alot of action, and it was a fairly short read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
