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