Synopsis: 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.
I actually got this book from Barnes & Nobles, and it came with a poster that had this cover on one side, and The Heir cover on the other. Totally off-subject, but I was happy enough about it to point out.
Eadlyn’s character development was incredible. If you look back at her in the beginning of the fourth book, she’s completely different. In a weird way, I’m proud of her.
I expected more from the romance aspect, so that was a bit disappointing. It bothered me enough to take away a star, but not enough for me to dislike the book, or take it away from the author.
I loved the ending, and wouldn’t change a thing about it. In my copy, I also got an extra chapter, titled: 6 years later…
and that was very, very fulfilling. I’m not sure if that’s in every copy, but it was in mine. And it was awesome.
All-in-all, it was an amazing ending to the series, and I wouldn’t change a thing.
