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.
This last book was a slight step up from The Heir, but only slight. Henri made me laugh, Kile was steamy, and there were a few surprises. But mostly, it was just dull compared to the first three books.
I want to like Eadlyn–I think the concept of having a daughter to have a Selection and take the crown is a fantastic idea. But I found her to be finicky and spoiled. I hated the way she treated Josie.
Overall, I think the series was extremely entertaining. Was it the best damn thing I’ve ever read? Certainly not. But if someone asked me for a recommendation on fun, easy to read books, I’d point to Kiera Cass, especially if I know they like The Bachelor. They were really great to read in June, when everything else seemed too overwhelming. Need to break a slump? Try The Selection Series.
