I tried to give this book a chance, but the author managed to make the main character from the first set of this series' daughter even more unlikable then her mother. Still a great cover though.

"And I'm here to make this whole thing more awkward than it has to be."
America Singer, page 125 to Your Royal Highness, Princess Eadlyn of Angeles (she insisted)
"He pulled back again, looking into my eyes, and there was something different. Was he feeling that funny warmth creep into his arms and chest and head, too? 'Thank you,' I murmured. 'Any time. I mean'-- he shook his head, laughing at himself--'you know what I mean.' 'Goodnight, Kile.' 'Goodnight, Eadlyn." He gave me a quick kiss on the cheek before heading toward the stairs that led back to his temporary quaters. I watched him go and told myself that the only reason I was smiling like that was because of the cameras were hidden somewhere, not because of anything Kile woodwork had done."
-pg. 115 & 116
I kept thinking that I couldn't live my life for other people, that love was nothing but chains. And maybe it was, but so help me, I needed these chains ... These things didn't make me weaker; they held my soul to the earth. I wasn't going to run from them anymore. page 341
(Eadlyn talking about Eric on pg. 237)
I remembered the feeling of my first date with Hale, how I felt when I was sure he'd peeled everything back and seen the real me. This time, I felt like I was on the other side of that, looking past duty and worry and rank, seeing the true heart of a person.
And his was so beautiful.
(Eadlyn dancing with Henri on pg. 313)
When I came up the second time, laughing, I spotted Eric over my shoulder.
I could have been wrong, but his shy smile looked a little sad.
And when I was finished, I'd have a ring on my finger.
- Princess Eadlyn, the last sentence.
" You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most important, you can be queen and still be a bride."
SummaryAdd a Summary
This is going to be marked in history. Princess Eadlyn (King Maxon and Queen America's daughter) is the first ever woman who is going to select her husband instead of the other way around!
Prince Maxon and princess America, (now king and queen), have a daughter who has to have a selection.
Princess Eadlyn goes through her own Selection, even though she doesn't want to get married.
Princess Eadlyn is growing up. It's time for her to have her very own Selection. Reluctantly, she takes part. But maybe a different ending than she imagined will be beyond fantastic.
The latest installment in the Selection series does not disappoint. It is set twenty years after the last selection, with many changes to the beloved world that Kiera Cass has created. The big problem is that Maxon got rid of the castes, but people still cling to them and their stability. In order to appease the public, Maxon and America decide that their best course of action is to hold a selection. This will be unlike any other selection that Illea has ever seen. When Eadlyn was born, seven minutes before her twin brother Ahren, she was declared heir to the throne, making her the first ever true Queen. The boys are due to arrive and the stubborn Eadlyn has a cornucopia of plots up her sleeve to rid her house of them for good. But, will her plan work, or will she really fall in love like her parents did twenty years ago? Read Kiera Cass' newest book, titled "The Heir" to find out how this unique selection will go down.
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.
