Summary (from Goodreads):

When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.

Review

The Crown is the fifth book in Kiera Cass’s The Selection series and it is a perfect ending to the series. Even though The Heir could have been better, The Crown definitely made up for it. The characters are so much more developed and Eadlyn really changes from her old, snobby self. The bigger theme of family was so sweet and makes the book even more enjoyable. Continue reading

Book Review: The Heir

The Heir by Kiera cast is set 20 years after the first three books, when the daughter of Maxon and America holds her own Selection. I have never read anything like The Heir in the whole YA genre. The concept is just so different and can’t be explained very well. It is a bit sad to leave the old characters, but there are plenty of new ones to make up for it. The reader can also return to Illéa and read about the new changes to it that the future has brought. This book is on my list for the best books of the year. Continue reading
