~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~My thoughts:Although I didn't immediately love it, I really did enjoy this book. It had a great setting and plot that really captured my interest. It was kinda a feeling of Britain during a world war two/civil war type war. Also a mix of a hidden princess, treasonous uprising and then another uprising against the uprising and a battle for freedom and for good. I liked the characters and didn't really have any problems other than in some pots that seemed a little hurried and the fact that there wasn't more! it was really exciting and great dystopian read :D I would recommend to YA+ because of the violence. Tough girls and dystopian lovers will enjoy :) I cannot wait for the next book!
Cover thoughts:Very pretty...in a dystopian lover's view :P I love how the have Big Ben and the Thames in the picture :D
My favorite characters:Eliza and/or Wesley. And I really liked the horse, Caligula :D
