Book Review of The Crown by Kiera Cass

When Eadlyn became the first princess of IllĂ©a 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.

After reading The Heir and enjoying it as well as the books about Eadlyn's parents, I was very much looking forward to the conclusion of this series.  While the voice and pace of this book are the same, I didn't enjoy it as much. Things get serious, as well as I feel like more could have been done to convince me of the love between her and the guy she ends up with. Her actions confused me as she was willing to fight for some things but not others. 

If you have enjoyed this series so far than I would totally say finish it. It isn't bad, but it didn't blow me out of the park. It is still a quick, fun and enjoyable read.
