Amazon has a Splash Into Summer Book Sale sale going on for a few days and several of the titles are fairy tale related. I'm going to give each title it's own post today.
The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze is well-reviewed overall so don't let the nom de plume scare you off. It, too, is $2.99 today and really isn't as much fairy tale as post-apocalyptic princess. But we all need a dose of that on occasion, right? In an English setting. That's Parliament on the cover... The reviews do warn that it is violent and dark, so beware unless that is your exact taste for summer escapism.
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 love-once more.
Now she must risk everything to ensure that she does not become . . .
The Last Princess.
