“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine.
My pick for this week is:
The Last Princess
by Galaxy Craze
Expected Publication: May 8th 2012 by Poppy
Happily ever after is a thing of the past.
The year is 2090.
England is a barren land. Food is rationed. Oil has decimated the oceans. The people are restless.
A ruthless revolutionary enacts a plan to destroy the royal family, and in a moment, the king is dead. His heiress, Princess Mary, and her brother, Jamie, have been abducted, and no one knows their fate. Princess Eliza Windsor barely escapes, and finds herself scared and lost in London’s dangerous streets.
With a mind for revenge and the safe recovery of her siblings, Eliza joins the enemy forces in disguise. There she is tempted by her first taste of independence — and true love. Ultimately she must summon her courage and fight to ensure that she does not become… The Last Princess.
Everything about this book sounds interesting… monarchy, dystopian vibes, revolutionaries, kidnapping, romance and a possibly totally cool kick butt princess bent on revenge, survival, and the safety of her siblings? Rock. On.
So what are you looking forward to this week?
