The Heir (The Selection) by Kiera Cass

 “I’m not sure anyone knows what they’re looking for until they find it.”
― Kiera Cass,
The Heir

The Heir is the fourth installment in, The Selection  Series. America and Maxon are married. They have two children and the cast system has been abolished. This story is about their children, not them. Their characters have become nearly unrecognizable.

Their oldest is female and heir to the throne. Her name is Eadlyn and she is a self centered, spoiled, brat but she knows what she wants and is unapologetic for it. The people of the country are upset and in turmoil. Maxon and American convince, Eadlyn to hold her own selection in hopes to raise the spirits of the country and cause some distraction.

Eadlyn begrudgingly agrees and is determined to do it her way and send everyone home. She sends suitors without a second thought and then she finally takes the time to get to know some of them and finds out that they aren't all as bad as she thinks (despite there being some bad apples in the bunch).

Eadlyn is insufferable but her antics will make you laugh, shake your head and call it teen angst! I hated her at first but grew to love her! It's really fun to see the selection from different points of view and to see a character grow is a short span of time.I really enjoyed reading this book but the ending -- the ending is a cheap cliffhanger that ruffled my feathers!

Grade: A
