Synopsis: When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.
Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.
Review: Oh my highness! I loved this book and I thought this was the excellent ending of this series! I really liked how developed Eadlyn became throughout the book and the book flowed just as well as the other books in the series did. I loved the romance and I loved how even though Eadlyn was different from her mother and her father, that she was still just as lovable as they are.
However, I do feel that the book was a bit rushed. I think this book could have easily expanded into a third book by either adding in more stuff in this book or by doing something completely new. I also want another book because I’m not ready for this series to be over lol. I’d love to see more of the other characters too, as I think they weren’t as well detailed in these books as they were in the original trilogy.
Verdict: A solid ending.
