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 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.

Gr 9 Up-England is in turmoil, cut off from the rest of the world by a series of natural disasters coined the "seventeen days." In the wake of this, a ruthless villain has started an uprising to overthrow the royal family. The King and Queen have been assassinated and two of the three royal children have been taken captive. Middle child, Eliza, a 16-year-old spitfire, has escaped and has made it her mission to rescue her siblings and seek revenge for her family's murder. She infiltrates the enemy army in order to fulfill her mission and ends up finding an unlikely ally. Like other titles in its genre, Galaxy Craze's tale (Poppy, 2012) features a strong female protagonist trying to survive in an apocalyptic landscape. What sets this one apart is the royal element and Eliza's ability to be a pillar of hope to the masses. Leslie Belliare narrates with a smoothness that draws listeners in.
