In the year 2090, after war and natural disasters have left the most developed of nations in ruin, England is a barren land. The last trees live in the courtyard of Buckingham Palace, food is rationed, oil has destroyed the oceans, poverty is rampant and discontent is rising to a fever pitch. Hatred of the royals is strong and the people are growing restless.
When a ruthless revolutionary sets out to overthrow the crown, he makes the royal family his first target. The king is murdered and two of the royal children are kidnapped; only sixteen-year-old Princess Eliza manages to escape.
Determined to get revenge on the man who destroyed her family, Eliza joins the enemy forces in disguise and it is with them that she meets someone who helps her remember how to hope -- and love -- once more. Now Eliza must risk everything to ensure that she does not become... The Last Princess.
"Romeo and Juliet-style romance and a dash of royal political intrigue."
"A pulse-pounding, sobering look at human nature..."
