The Crown

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.


I am going to get straight to the point right now. I am quite disappointed in this last book of the Selection series. I mean, it was good—just not amazing. I fell in love with books one through four. This one was just…not as good, for a few reasons.

Eadlyn didn’t choose who I wanted her to choose! Yeah, I know I am judging this book by the outcome of it. And I totally understand what she did. I was just rooting for—him, not him. I liked both guys; I just liked one better.

As a warning to any person who wants to read this book, Kiera Cass did add a gay ‘couple.’ In my opinion, it was an unneeded agenda.

This is also not the best book of the series because it is the last. The Selection series is over—no more stories about Eadlyn or America. (Personally, I liked America’s stories better.) But I am still sad to see them go.

I will just have to reread them!

Yeah, so those are the three reasons I didn’t like this book as much as I liked the others.

But, the cover was beautiful!!! I love the purple dress!!! Actually, all of the book covers in the Selection series are wonderfully done!!!

But, the ending was good. I mean, sure, Kiera Cass didn’t have Eadlyn end up with who I wanted, but it did end with a happily ever after! For that, I am glad!

I am sad for this series to end!!!

3 stars!!
