Summary: 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.

Guys! Oh My God Guys! I am so extremely happy with the ending of this book (and series). *cry face emoji*

At first I was hesitant to start The Selection series, but I kept hearing great reviews and everyone was in love with it so I gave it a chance. 

When I read The Heir I didn't really like Eadlyn too much. She seemed too full of herself and didn't seem to really care about her selection. But the events that take place at the end of the book, and the fact that she may be falling for someone, Eadlyn continues her Selection.

When The Crown began, Eadlyn cut down her Selection right the the six Elite. As America is recovering from her heart attack, and Maxon watching every move she makes, Eadlyn ascends the throne. Eadlyn, much to everyone’s surprise, continues her Selection. Trying to fit in time for dates and now ruling Illea, she doesn't realise the one she is truly in love with.

Beware, time for spoilers.

Eadlyn ends up falling for the least expected boy. He is technically not even a contestant of the Selection. Ekkio and Eadlyn, or Erik, Henri’s translator, fall in love and it’s the cutest yet saddest thing. Kind of like a ‘so close but yet so far’ type of situation. When it’s time to pick her new husband, in the heat of this, she ends of banishing Kile (so he can live his dream of architecture) and asking Henri for his hand. Before The Report, Eadlyn confesses to her love for Ekkio to her father and he agrees to let her break the rules of the Selection

The ending the The Selection series is truly a Happily Ever After and can't express how happy I am with the way this series ended.
