The Heir (Selection #4) by Kiera Cass
Release Date: May 5, 2015
Age Group: Young Adult
Summary: 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.
My Thoughts: Oh man! Why did I wait so long to read this one?? I remember loving loving loving The Selection series but I was a little unsure if I’d like the book about the daughter of the main characters of The Selection! But boy did I love this one!!! I was so happy to be back into this world.
In The Heir we are introduced to Eadlyn who is next in line to rule the kingdom. But that also means she needs to pick a husband. She has no intention of falling in love with anyone anytime soon. She’s so independent and she doesn’t need a boyfriend or a husband to depend on. She depends on herself for everything. She also has a brother. I really loved her brother too.
So of course The Selection happens. We meet a bunch of different guys but my favorites from the get go were Henri, Kile, Hale and Erik. My two favorites were always Kile and Erik. But then I’d see sooo much potential in Henri and Hale. It was such a hard and confusing choice. I liked getting to know these four boys, along with the rest. But these four always stuck out for me the most.
In this one, The Selection is just getting started and she’s getting to know the boys. So honestly not much really happens.. I mean a lot does, but at the same time, no long lasting choices are made. And that’s one reason I’m glad I waited to read this.. I think I would have been really frustrated to not be able to start the next book!
Overall: As I closed the last page, I thought to myself, I need to know who she ends up choosing so of course I went right to the next one! Thank goodness!
I outright loved it!!!
Cover: Love It!! These covers are so beautiful and I just love the pretty dresses!!
