Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series has captured the hearts of readers from its very first page. Now the end of the journey is here. Prepare to be swept off your feet by The Crown—the eagerly awaited, wonderfully romantic fifth and final book in the Selection series.In The Heir, a new era dawned in the world of The Selection. Twenty years have passed since America Singer and Prince Maxon fell in love, and their daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own.Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.
It’s not over until she has an engagement ring on her finger and a young man destined to be a prince by her side. Choosing a husband is never an easy task, especially for Princess Eadlyn. With her mother’s recent medical emergency and other unforeseen obstacles thrown under her feet, the princess continues on with her Selection and even learns what it means to truly love both a person and her own country.
The Crown was a very anticipated book of mine. I didn’t absolutely love the first four books, but they’re quick and fun, and this particular book wasn’t an exception. It’s a little sad that this series is over and there could have been much more to the events in this book because some things weren’t quite enough or properly fleshed out. The ending was cutesy and even heartwarming, however, it doesn’t stop me from feeling like it was rushed. Eadlyn, although I liked her just fine in The Heir, was enjoyable. She’s intelligent, strong, and a little unsure of herself. I’ll miss her. As for who she ended up choosing, I’m only just okay with it. I would have preferred someone else. Despite all of that, I’m satisfied enough.

In this fourth romantic novel, follow Illéa's royal family into a whole new Selection—and find out what happens after happily ever after.Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon's heart.

The Heir is officially my favorite Selection book! I don’t know how Kiera Cass does this, luring me in every time with each new installment. I believe I rated the other three books between 3-4 stars, but they’re fun, quick reads. It’s like being addicted to your favorite candy.
In this book, we meet Maxon and America’s precious babies. One of them, of course, is Princess Eadlyn who is having her own Selection. The first female to do so. She is also the first female who will one day rule the country by her own right.
She was such a spoiled brat, but I loved that about her. All princesses can’t be kind, soft spoken, little pretty things. A good deal of Eadlyn’s problems, although, did come from misinterpretations of her personality. She came off as somewhat cruel and distant to the public, when that wasn’t really what she was like or intending to be seen.
Maxon and America were such a cute couple. I loved all their moments together. They’re such good parents, but I think they spoiled their babies a little too much. Especially Eadlyn, I mean she’s supposed to be eighteen years old, and she is just now learning about some things she should have already known.
My favorite guy of the whole group was Henri. He was so adorable and perfect. I hope she chooses him, or maybe the translator. All the other guys can go, even Kile. I just felt like everyone else was there just to use Eadlyn for money and position, and Kile wants leave the palace, so away with them.
And that cliffhanger. Man, that really burst my happy bubble. I need another book ASAP.
