Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass

Hello readers,

We all know I missed the Sunday review again, but I promise I won't make it a habit. It is my University free time and I use that time a lot to be with friends, family and on road trips, to restore and get the energy back for another semester. I feel I am slowly getting over my reading and blogging slump so everything should be back to normal soon once my everyday life has a routine again.

Now for today I have a review for you. Back in Juli I read the Selection series and my review for the first three books can be found on this blog already, so feel free to check those out too. Today I want to give you my thoughts on The Heir which is the 4th book of the series.

America and Maxon have become Queen and King, they married and got children. One of them being Eadlyn. Their oldest daughter who although she finds her parents story romantic doesn't plan on repeating it.
All her life Eadlyn has been prepared to become Queen and she is facing her responsibilities when there are riots starting again in the "kingdom". The castes have been eliminated but there are still problems of integration and Maxon and America think its time for another Selection...Eadlyns Selection.
But how will a Selection go with a Princess who doesn't want to find a husband?

For me honestly the Selection Series ended with book three, The One.
This one here was a nice and quick read but I felt as if I could open my review and complaint list from book one, The Selection.
I couldn't relate to the characters. I felt there was plothole after plothole, but somehow I still felt the story intrigued me and I kept on reading. The male selection candidates were a real challenge, some seemed nice, some seemed like a total nightmare, yet I felt there wasn't any depth to their characters. Eadlyn annoyed me for the majority of the book. I had my moments where I could understand her and then the next I thought how annoying can a character be. However I still kept on reading.
In the end I even wanted to pick up the next book.
So it is an enjoyable read, with its flaws and I gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

How did you enjoy this book of the series?

Let me know and I see you again soon for another bookish post.

Take care,
