The specacular happily ever after of the #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series

Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series has captured the hearts of readers from its very first page. Now the end of the journey is here. Prepare to be swept off your feet by The Crown—the 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 thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and in The Crown, Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.

Kiera Cass was born in South Carolina in 1983. She received a bachelor's degree in history from Radford University. She self-published her first novel, The Siren, in 2009. She is the author of The Selection series. In 2014 her title, The One made The New York Times Best Seller List.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Okay Conclusion... I think this as close to a perfect ending as the dystopian world in which the novels are set will allow. This isn't a perfect (or even ideal) world, but the ending leaves us with hope that it eventually could be. Eadlyn has the power to implement the positive changes that her and her parents started. While the characters throughout the books certainly got a bit better in terms of their terrifyingly medieval mindset, readers should see through the (admittedly decent) love story and see it for what it really is: a dystopian society. I would like to think that Cass intended to make a statement with the absurdness of mindsets and values in the fictitious world. All in all, this is a great quick read, and an interesting conclusion to The Selection series. (less) [edit]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was good. This series is only recommended for royalty-loving fans. It could have honestly been better, but it was overall okay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SO DANG STUPID eikko and eadlyn don't even seem to like each other. he literally gives her a weed and she's like oooooh thanks eikko i loooooove you for giving me a gross weed and then she turns down kile, who is like 20 times better than eikko but i still hate kile. eadlyn is snotty and obnoxious. everyday she tells herself 'you are eadlyn schreave and no-one, i repeat NO ONE is more powerful than you' when realistically there are fifty other women who are more powerful than her, including her mother. all the romance was rushed and sickening. eadlyn is a brat. america is so different, and her only good qualities, (annoyingness and stubbornness) disappear. maxon was so strange, and he is all like ha i hate you I'm never taking you to the beach. SO STRONGLY HATED THIS. I'm still grieving over celeste's death.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I could have done without this book Honestly I think I would have been completely fine if the selection had remained a trilogy. I enjoyed the final two novels, the crown was a breeze through read but it lacked the things I so enjoyed with the selection. The selection trilogy with addicting, quick read romances that I truly enjoyed. Where as the crown lacked the romance bits I enjoyed and went in so many directions you sometimes completely lost what was happening. That being said I did enjoy the series as a whole

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as impressed Being a huge fan of the selection series these follow up books were a bit disappointing. I feel she should have stretched it into 3 books and had Eadlyn and Erik have more encounters and maybe some sneaking around like her parents love story it seemed to rushed. Still a good read though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ITS GREAT But..... The ending isn't great I love this book, how it was written and the whole idea but.... this book ended in the worst possible way. Just the way the ending was written makes it look like the author rushed it and was lazy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Finish This series has been truly something, a series of up and downs. The only book I didn't read right after the release was The Selection, and that was only to allow some of the hype to die down. The Crown I just couldn't get my hands on quick enough. Not for any other reason than this was the end, this was it. No, I didn't want the series to end but honestly I did just want to know. Especially after the mixed feelings that The Heir caused to ripple through me page after page. There is so much that you can't really say with this series without spoiling anything. With all honesty I wish that there was more to this book. Please don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the way that it ended, but I wish that the journey to get there was a little more detailed. Undoubtedly there was a lot that needed to be packed into this final instalment and so many expectations, but I wish that sometimes it had been a little more fleshed out. There were times that it felt like I knew how it was ending, but wanted to savour it a little bit longer. The biggest thing for me (beyond the fact I was happy with how everything ended) was that, Eadlyn was truly redeemed. She was almost a breaking point for me in the previous book and though I started to warm up to her, there was still room for so much to go wrong with her in this book. However, she truly came into her own and became more than I could have every expected. Once again because this is the last book I don't want to say too much but despite a few obvious choices, Eadlyn really did become a character that I enjoyed. She learned through everything and took the steps that she needed to, not only for herself but for the people of her country as well. She still does have some growing to do but she is for sure on the right path. When it comes to romance and the men of this book there is really not much to be said. I think that some of their secrets that came out shocked me but beyond that it was fairly obvious who wasn't going to be in the final three. This was probably the more predictable part of the book and I was okay with this. In fact most people that have followed this series probably were. The thing is Cass put a little twist in there. Okay, I kind of expected it but still it did initially surprise me that it all wrapped up the way it did. There was so much at stake for these guys and some made unexpected steps, while others went a way that no one could have expected. Overall, I really enjoyed how everything turned out for each guy and the true colors that shone so brightly from each towards the end. The Crown was the end that I had hoped for. Part of me wishes there was more, that we could see how the decisions that Eadlyn made played out. This is one dystopia series that I feel complete by, which is no easy task. It's hard to feel satisfied with the end, when often the end is only the beginning in dystopia novels. I would have to say that overall Cass nailed it and I hope to be able to pick up more reads by her in the future. If you haven't started this series, I would highly recommend it if you are a fan of dystopia and stunning covers!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Series I was expecting a lot from this book as it is the last to a wonderful series but this disappointed me. There were details that I thought were left out. The plot twists were surprising; especially the one having to do with Ean! I still liked the story but I wish there were more details involved with the last book.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It could've been better Kiera Cass' books have always lured me in. She's an incredible writer. However, I feel that this book was lacking everything that drew me into her first four books. I will not give any spoilers (or I'll try, at least), but the plot was rushed and the chemistry between her and her now-husband did not work well. Although I was ecstatic to find out that she ended up with the character I wanted her to end up with, it surprised me because Eadlyn gave no indication whatsoever, nor did the guy. The plot twist didn't really work, and it was too short. Had the book been longer, I think it would've been an excellent book. Also, I feel that Eadlyn's personality completely changed. Even if her mother's condition affected her, I feel that it couldn't have affected her that much. It felt like I was looking into the eyes of another person bearing the same name and title as the feisty, stubborn girl I met as in The Heir. However, there are also many good things about this book. We get to see a character mature and grow up as she realizes what real life is like. We get to find out who put Kile's name into the basket. We get to see what happens to Ahren and Eadlyn's relationship as they are on different continents. However, I feel that this book could've been better, and if Kiera decides to re-write this book and released new ones, I definitely would read those.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major Disappointment I believe this book was a huuuuggggeee waste of money. It was a severe disappointment to the Selection Series. The book was short and lacked the necessary details to make the book engaging. AND WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT PLOT TWIST. Like no... That's not okay. I disliked the choice of ending and am extremely dissatisfied. 0/10, would not recommend. However, the other four books were great, A+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect ending to a fairy time store The Selection series is pretty much a book based off of The Bachelor, but with more intimated and genuine details of each characters and dating scenes than those fake set up dates on the reality show. With that being said, it has been years since finishing America and Maxon's selection story and the first part of Eadlyn's selection and i can say i have re-read all of those books just to keep my patience for the final instalment and Kiera Cass did not disappoint me with this last final instalment of The Selection series. I could not tare away from the book with excitement and knowing who Eadlyn was going to fall in love and choose. Although, unexpectedly as well as falling in love with each character more and more due to all the touching and resolving moments that are sneaked in and i thank Kiera Cass for that because know and understanding has given new prospect to a whole new light of the characters and i loved it! This book gets five out of five stars and more! It is a must read and a great guilty pleasure for those long boring days.

Editorial Reviews

“A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport), this trilogy launch is a lot of fun. Cass deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stroking the embers of America’s first, forbidden love.”
