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.

My Review

I have to say that I definitely liked Eadlyn more in The Crown than in The Heir. That made the end to this series more enjoyable.

I do have to say that the concept of a Selection is still a bit strange. It is basically The Bachelorette and I don’t see how that can honestly work. That concern aside, the book was good.

I loved seeing Maxon, America, Aspen, and the other characters from the first three books all grown up. I also loved how the secret passages came up again. It seemed like they were completely forgotten in The Heir.

I did guess the ending but it wasn’t too obvious. For a while, I thought I would be wrong. The ending was a bit shocking. I would have loved a few years down the road epilogue to tie up all the endings.

In all, this was a great conclusion to The Selection series. It is always hard to say goodbye to a fictional world but this conclusion made it easier.
