Publisher's Summary

Kiera Cass' number-one New York Times best-selling Selection series has captured the hearts of audiences from its very first moments. Now the end of the journey is here. Prepare to be swept off your feet by The Crown - the eagerly awaited, wonderfully romantic fifth and final book in the Selection series.

In The 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 35 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.

    "Should have ended the series with the One"

    Cata
    I LoVed the selection series! Could hardly put the Selection, the Elite and the One down so I imagined the "sequels" would be just as good. I was sorely disappointed. Not worth the credit.

    Story
    "No action, no drama, no suspense..love story?"

    This was a strange way to end the series. No action, drama, or suspense. A very small amount a love story. The worst thing that this princess had to deal with is getting a tomato thrown at her face. It slowly just comes to an end.There is a lot of detail given to some of the characters in the story, but it's kind of pointless because they don't really play much of a role in the book. I just felt like this book was like..blah, blah, blah,...the end. Wondering how it received so many stars from other people. What a let down.

    "Underwhelming"

    She should have stopped at three books. The story fizzled out. I was so looking forward to this.

    "Kinda disappointing"

    I've read all five of the selection series. Unfortunately this was my least favorite. The narrator didn't help. Whenever the main character was supposed to be upset, the narrator TOTALLY over dramatized it. The ending kinda left a lot to be desired, especially since it's the last book of the series.

    "Hated the narrator and book was slow"

    Slow book. Felt like nothing happened until the last chapter and the way the narrator spoke was annoying to listen to. Nowhere near as enjoyable as the other books in the series but glad I finished it all the same.

    Story
    "It's like Kiera Cass didn't even write it"
    Would you try another book from Kiera Cass and/or Brittany Pressley?

    I would, because the Selection series was so good. I listened to it again after listening to this book, and it's like the books aren't even written by the same person. The characters are shallow, and the characters from the Selection books act completely differently in this series. No good.


    What could Kiera Cass have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Developed the characters more? I thought she rushed through a lot of things, and made characters (even well-developed ones from the previous series) seem shallow and do things just to further the plot, not because it made any sense. I thought the book was very poorly written.


    Was The Crown worth the listening time?

    NO! I was SO disappointed in this book!

    Story
    "A Lackluster Ending to a Fun Series"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. I really enjoyed the first 3 books in this series about America, this characters mother, but I ended up listening to this book to put myself to sleep. It really only finished it so that i could complete the whole series. I am more than a little sad that the author has indicated that she will not be writing any further stores in this world.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am currently re- listening the the book Divergent by Veronica Ross. My next credit will be spent on the dramatized version of The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was good and the productions was fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. Even though i did not think much of this book i would lend my financial support/vote for this world and this author. K Cass did a great job with her other books in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I am 50 years old and this series was my first young adult novel. I stumbled on it by accident and I'm so happy i did. I'm sure i will enjoy re-reading the America character books many times. Thank you Ms Kass ; ) Please re-consider writing more books in this world.

    "SPOILERS"
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I felt like this was a lack luster ending. It seemed rushed! I loved the selection and was really excited to see what Eadlyn selection would be like. I was team Kile but I was thinking that there was something more between her and Erik. I felt like she flipped so quickly from saying she liked Kile in the garden to Loving Erik. It just seemed to soon or we didn't get enough background detail to believe it!

    I'm a clinical psychology doctorate student. I love to read a good romance or ya novel to escape from the everyday stresses of life.

    "Good Commute Book"
    Was The Crown worth the listening time?

    To give context to my review, I'm a 27 year old grad student. I still love young adult and teen books. Why not? I read so much for my dissertation already. I adored the first 3 books of the series. There's something about Eadlyn that makes her very drab to me. I find myself having trouble paying attention when trying to listen at home. Of course in traffic, it's interesting enough. There's probably a better book out there to spend my credit on. Not every book is going to be a home run. I figured it's worth finishing the series.

    Eadlyn is a much force to be reckoned with as her mother. Really, I can't say more with dropping spoilers.

    "A little bit disappointing"

    I'm glad I listened to the last instalment in the series. However, the romance wasn't very believable. Out of nowhere she seemed to fall in love and it seemed a bit disjointed. Wish it was as good as the first 3 books.
