She must choose between love and duty...____________________________________________
A captivating tale of love and duty as the last princess of Meigen searches for her true purpose amidst conflict and betrayal.
It is 626AD, and the ancient Kingdom of Meigen is left vulnerable to neighboring Saxons. To unite the kingdoms and bring peace, Princess Alena must enter into a royal marital alliance. But when the handsome physician, Sherwin, befalls her, matters become complicated. Torn between obligations to her young son and country, she faces a difficult decision. Will Alena obey the king’s orders, or choose to follow her heart?
'The Last Princess' was a sweet, tale geared towards a young adult audience. It could also appeal to adults looking for a quick, undemanding read.
This book included many of the characters from the author's first book The Forgotten Princess of Elmetia that complement each other well. For instance, the the lead character in this book, Princess Alena, finding love with one of the protaganists from the last book.
There was certainly enough action and intrigue to keep the reader interested, even if the characters could be a little bit one-dimensional. Still, Alena was an interesting character, struggling with her place in the world and the demands of society. I found very interesting the references to herbalism, and the various uses of herbal remedies- but I am sort of nerdy in that way.
Perhaps the romance was a little on the cliched side at times, and there were a few historical inaccuracies, but generally a good, clean read.
I recieved a copy of this book from the author for review. I was not required to write a positive one and all opinions expressed are my own.
