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 now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.

“The Crown”, Book #5 of “The Selection” series, written by Keira Cass, is the final book of this series, which concludes Eadlyn’s selection. I was really hoping for a grand ending, considering how wonderful the first three books in this series were, but these last two books just didn't click with me. I wish this series would have ended after the first three books so that all of the readers would've been left with the ending of Maxon and America’s iconic love story, or these final two books be about right after Maxon and America’s wedding, because speaking on behalf of other readers, I can say that these last two books were definitely a disappointment. I think it was risky for the author to switch the main character in the middle of the series because it was hard for me to envision other people in the same circumstances that Maxon and America were in. If you have read the last four books in this series, then I would still recommend this book to you because you’ll probably want to know how this series ends, but just be prepared for a disappointment. I rate this book a 2 out of 5.

I enjoyed reading this book. The way it picked up after the ending of the previous book was really great. How the author didn’t go into a long explanation about what happened in the previous book was greatly appreciated.
My favourite thing had to be how the author was able to cover everything in the story. If there seemed to be some loose ends in the beginning of the book or how it left off on previous book it tied up nicely throughout the book. From things that seemed insignificant in the beginning proved to have importance in the end.
One thing I really liked in The Crown was the character development for the main character. Her ideals remained the same and she really grew as a person throughout this book. The way the author was able to bring the mindset of someone in this time and story and to accurately convey what they would think, and feel was the best part for me while reading.
The romance in this book was spot on. It was continuous throughout the book. It was suspenseful, eventful and emotional. That’s my favourite kind of romance where the relationships are complicated and the tension is high.
I liked the way the author added twists and turns as she slowly eliminated elements in the book that weren’t relevant to the story any longer. All while leading to the ending. The author gives hints here and there in each chapter of how the book will end but she adds so many twists and turns that leaves you guessing of how things will play out.
In the end this was a book I enjoyed and would recommend this book to all who enjoys drama, romance and a bit of action. Rating: 4/5

The Crown by Kiera Cass is the heartwarming conclusion to the Selection series. The book continues exactly where The Heir left off, with Eadlyn's life shattering at the pieces, she's forced to make choices that will affect not only her future but her beloved country's as well. The Crown is the type of book that's "fluffy", but in all the right ways. If you're the hopeless romantic type like me, this book completely satisfies the void it's predecessor The Heir could not. There was buildup and suspense that was missing in the previous novel. I found myself completely invested, even finishing this book within a day. I rooted for the inevitable pairing, screamed into a pillow at their hardships and got teary eyed at their happy ending together. To me, Eadlyn's character development really deserved the credit in the novel. She started out as this hated and spoiled girl, who grew up in the span of the two books to a character you cant help but root for. I really loved this book and I can't express that enough. 5 Stars
