I received an advanced copy of this book not too long ago, and what first interested me in wanting to read The Last Princess was the combination of a near-future apocalyptic event with the British monarchy in danger. It seemed thrilling to read!
I'm curious to see what you think about the book trailer and your general impression about the book. The trailer isn't too long, but I think it really gets it point across well to potential readers.
