BOOK TOUR, #GIVEAWAY & REVIEW - The Last Order by Angela Marie Caldwell

The Last Order
Release Date: 02/03/15
Rocket Circus Press

Summary from Goodreads:
Lana forms a secret order of women knights to fulfill her father’s final request: find the queen who was thought to be dead and return her to the throne.

Lana Crewe is a strong, fiercely driven seventeen year old living in a village ruled by fear. With their king and queen both dead, strife and division have taken hold. Ruthlessly attacked by an Order called Talons, Lana’s father is fatally stabbed. Before he dies, he imparts upon Lana a directive to save the statue of Saint Peter, and tells her that the queen yet lives. Now it is up to Lana to unravel the mystery of Saint Peter and bring an end to all of the war by finding the queen.

A medieval tale of hope and mystery, The Last Order is an action-packed story with one of the strongest female leads since Disney’s “Brave.” Not your average YA novel; The Last Order takes upper teenage angst and spins it on its head. You’ll be gripping this book as hard as it will be gripping you. 

4 out of 5 (very good)

I received this book from YA Bound Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

Lana Crewe has been raised in a quiet village, well away from the troubles that stir in the kingdom. Her adopted father has raised her to think for herself and to be able to look after herself, including teaching her how to hunt and fight with weapons. He has also spent time developing her mind by teaching her strategy, disguised as chess. When their village is attacked, Lana's father is sadly killed but has enough breath to leave her with a job to do and a puzzle to solve. 

This is a nicely plotted, well laid out story with characters that are fleshed out and believable. There is a hint of romance between two of the characters but it is all clean so suitable for all ages. The emphasis in this story is the action side of things which makes it an intriguing and intricate book as Lana has to find out just who she can trust and what she needs to do.

Highly recommended for all fans of medieval tales and fantasy adventures.
