My first book of 2016!
The Heir is the fourth book in the Selection Series. I have read the first three books in the series and overall really enjoyed them, so I was really excited to start reading The Heir!
YA fiction/ Romance
Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.
But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.
Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.
Rating; 3.5 Stars
“You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride.”
I enjoyed it and it was definitely a nice read. I was able to like most of the new characters that were introduced. I liked how the main charachter, Eadlyn didn’t want to connect with any of the boys at first.
While some people didn’t really like her character I thought she was alright. I liked her more than America, because I was able to connect with her. Although I liked her, there were sometimes were I felt like I didn’t even care about her. This was mainly because of her attitude.
At first I wasn’t really sure if I would like to read a different character. After a couple of chapters it didn’t really bother me as much, but the one thing that did was that there was nothing happing in the first half of the book at all. LIKE NOTHING AT ALL. It was really boring to get through the first half to be honest.
I loved the last part of the book. It was open ended. I think that was a clever way for Kiera to end The Heir, because I do want to read more.
Overall it was a fresh take on the Selection Series and I did like reading it. 🙂
