Ellie is a rebellious princess who is no longer hiding her real identity.

Lottie is her Portman, wishing that she could shield Ellie from the threat of Leviathan.

Jamie is Ellie's Partizan, a lifelong bodyguard sworn to protect the princess at any cost - but has mysteriously disappeared.

Not all of the trio have made it back to Rosewood Hall. Can they be reunited? And at what cost?

With the crown at risk, the stakes have never been higher . . .

I joined an ultimate book tour hosted by The Write Reads and Penguin to celebrate the last book in The Rosewood Chronicles series. They gave me a copy of the first and last book in the series in exchange for an honest review. Read my review of Undercover Princess here.

Disclaimer: I have only read the first book in the series before starting this one. I know that I’m missing bits and pieces but the author has done a wonderful job to explain the major events from previous books and I could understand the whole story. Reading the first book did help with understanding the world.

Ellie, Lottie, and Jamie have been apart from each other for a while at the beginning of the book and they feel the loss of their friends. None of them is themselves and they try to mask what they feel and who they are. Only by realising both of these things, they’ll gain the strength to overthrow the evil plan of the Leviathan rebels, led by Claude. It was great to see how their friends, new and old, stand by them.

The book skips a lot of empty hours, covering a whole school year with more than three points of view, which increases the pace but it also made me feel like there might be interesting events we missed, crucial for character growth. But after having finished the book, it all made sense. The ending was well done, building towards the climax and increasing the stakes more and more. It’s a good wrap up for a series where everything comes together.

Can we have more dresses with secret sword compartments? Asking for a friend.

I give Princess Ever After five stars. It’s a great ending to the series and it had everything I could want. Every thread has been tied up and the epilogue brought me to tears. It’s definitely a series I could re-read every few years.
