Last of Her Name Reviews
Full review is up at somethingofthebook.com!
FYI: This book was sent to me by the publisher at my request. All opinions are completely my own. Thank you to the publishers for sending me this book!
Last of Her Name follows Stacia Androva as she finds out the truth of her heritage and runs away from the revelation across her galaxy (wonderfully named the Belt of Jewels) with Pol, one of her best friends. But when Stacia realizes Clio, her other best friend, has been taken by the Union and its violen ...more

If you know me at all, you’d know that I’m completely obsessed with Anastasia. The animated movie was—and still is—my favorite animated movie of all time (Tangled is right next to it!), the musical is the closest one to my heart. I’ve gone above and beyond for that production, and I was heartbroken to see it leave Broadway. I went to see it more than five times and met Christy Altomare (the Anya) and the rest of the cast every single time at the stage do ...more
DNF at about 30%. I am ready for some rant!...more
“It’s probably just some rich Alexandrian tourist with nothing better to do than slum around the outer systems.”
“Yeah.” Clio gives a wistful sigh. “Maybe a handsome, rich Alexandrian tourist, with a troubled past and a broody air and a heart yearning for love.”
Basically this is what this book turned out to be: a boring cliched retelling for bookish tourists, but in this case, I felt myself a duped with a promise of space Anastacia retelling tourist.
We have a blurb and cover now 😭😍 The title changed from Firebird to Last of Her Name! I really like this new title AND THE FONT. Woah.
A retelling of the legend of Anastasia, set in a broken, star-spanning empire.I.Can't.Breathe.
Do you know how much I love Anastasia?? Do you know?
It's my second fav story, after Beauty and the Beast, and I ADORE Beauty and the Beast with all my being. So anastasia being second to that says ~something~
And this is set in space.
BYE I'm no long ...more
A MAIN CHARACTER CALLED ANYA?
Sign me the fuck up.
Retelling Anastázie? Ve vesmíru? No sem s tím! :D
Last of Her Name might have resonated more with me if it were a series. As a standalone, there was a lot of pack into this book and as a result some important details were left out. I felt indifferent to the characters and romance and wanted more from the story overall. I liked the struggle for power and how our main character, Stacia, couldn't trust who had her best interest at heart. In the end, this just left me saying "okay, next."
Y'all. You guys. I have to shout this from the rooftops.
I. LOVE. RETELLINGS. IN. SPACE.
LAST OF HER NAME is based on the story of the Romanovs and the mystery surrounding Princess Anastasia, whose body wasn't found for many years after the rest of her family, and, for a while there, there were legends saying she'd survived. In this story, she did survive. And she's more powerful than she realizes.
Ordinarily, what draws me into a story are its characters. I'm not going to tell you that I formed ...more
