Synopsis (from Goodreads)
Publisher: Harper Collins Children's Books
Released: 3rd of May 2016
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.
What I Have to Say
The Selection series is one that I loved from start to finish, so reading The Heir and the Crown was wonderful. Not many series give you the opportunity to see things a few years later, to see how things really change and develop after the end of the series, but it's something that I think more series should do.
I liked Eadlyn quite a lot in the Heir. She was so different from America and it was obvious from the start that this series would be more about her growing up and taking the responsibilities that come from the power that she has to inherit.
I think what I liked about The Crown was the politics of it all. How Eadlyn has to fight to keep her life her own while also ensuring that the public like her and respect her as their queen so that they won't rebel against her.
It's the fact that this series, despite being centered around romance, has so much more to it than just a love story.
I am so, so sad to say goodbye to these beautiful books.
My thanks go to Netgalley and Harper Collins for providing me with this copy for review.
