BOOK REVIEW: THE CROWN

Spoiler: If you have not read the Selection series and want to, I would avoid reading this review since it contains spoilers.
Synopsis: IThe 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.

Review: After reading all 3 originals, and the accompanying novellas last year, I was excited when I found out that Cass wrote another 2 novels that take place 20 years later. I absolutely love the characters, so it was so cool seeing them as adults. I'm pretty bummed that this is the last novel from the collection because I love the world she created. I did find this book to be a little disappointing however. It was extremely predictable (even though I feel she tried to make it a twist with who Eadlyn marries..Can't fool me Cass, I saw it coming a mile off!), and the last 70 pages of the book were way too rushed!! It reminded me of her third Selection novel The One. I feel like her editors gave her a page limit so that is why everything happened so quickly and was too easily resolved without any real development. I thought that the whole drama involving Marid was so unbelievably forced to create tension. But I found it to be introduced too randomly and then it sorted itself out in like 2 chapters. She could have done so much more with it. Still not a bad novel, and if she were to release more in the future I would still read them simply because I love the concept.

Rating: 3/5
