It could well be that this is the last book that Ballantyne wrote, for it was published in the year that he died. It is one of the sets of books that he wrote with youngsters in mind, who hadn't much cash. These books were all about 120 pages in length, and furnished with just one illustration, but all of good quality, and all teaching the lesson that Ballantyne wanted above all to get across to his readership, that an honest God-fearing life is the best one to lead. The setting is in Northern Canada, the area which Ballantyne knew so well from his young days with the Hudson Bay Company. First published 1895.

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 left to live for but revenge, until she meets someone who helps her remember how to hope—and to love—once more. Now she must risk everything to ensure that she not become… The Last Princess.
