The Heir (The Selection #4) Reviews

  • Yonaily

    I was going to be queen, and a queen could be many things . . . but vulnerable wasn't one of them.

    I have no problem with female characters having an ego. Everyone can have one, right? You can be awesome, and I'll be cool with that. What I hate - what I can't stand, is a person who treats others like shit for no reason, and this beautiful princess named Eadlyn managed to get on my nerves every damn second of my read. Bratty, spoiled and immature doesn't begin to cover it.

    "You know how your mother and I met," Dad began.

    I rolled my eyes. "Everyone does. You two are practically a fairytale."

    We've all heard of the term one hit wonder. The singer who blasted out a fantastic, million-pound selling single, but never sold anything else; the actor that was brilliant in that one film, but disappeared off the scene immediately after; the model that did that great campaign, but never modelled again. It's a pretty common thing, to be honest. Sometimes, you also get authors ...more

    What can I say? This book was even better than I hoped it would be. I just absolutely love this series.

    I can't wait for the next book to come out!

    WTF did I just read?

    I was so excited to finally get my hands on The Heir!! I bought a hardcover copy with its GORGEOUS cover, just like the other three. I couldn't wait to finally meet Eadlyn Schreave and the rest of Maxon and America's sexy babies. Although the Selection Series should've ended with The One, I was still pretty hyped about the fourth book, The Heir, because well...


    Ahahaaha, I understand why readers disliked Ea

    *This review contains spoilers from the other 3 books, The Selection, The Elite, and The One.*

    I'd also like to make something clear here.

    This isn't for anyone to get offended by okay. If you loved this book and you think this one is better than the rest, okay, good for you. I don't mean to rant about everything and Eadlyn the whole time but this book just wasn't for me. I'm sorry if you get offended. If you think you will get offended by reading a review or just seeing some negative things about

    You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride.

    Why did I choose that quote? Because this review will mostly focus on one name: Eadlyn.

    I've heard much about The Selection series and to start off, I wasn't the biggest fan of the first book. The One was my favorite and in my opinion, and like others, it should've been the last book in the series. Everything made sense and came to an end in that one. Sure there were times where the words kids or children were mentioned, but even with that, it could've been left with us questioning the book after. I mean, a lot of us actually did.

    What would the funeral for the King and Queen be like?

    How would America and Maxon's kids look like?

    Would Celeste have a glamorous funeral?

    Will Aspen and Lucy get married?

    What will happen with Marlee?

    Will The Selection continue or will everything completely change in this book?

    Having part of those questions answered, I now come to wishing Kiera never published this book and The Crown. In my opinion, this is a different series. It's like a spin-off I suppose. But having my opinion reach a better level, I just wish it ended with The One. The ending was the one we were looking for since the first book.

    It started off with America entering The Selection when she didn't want to. Then we get to the part where she meets Prince Maxon, they start talking and gushing over each other. Second book comes around. King Clarkson does not like America and wants her eliminated because she is stubborn and not who he wishes to see in his palace. In his opinion, she is nothing like the other girls and is someone not worthy of Maxon's care. Coming to their journey in The One, Maxon finds out about her relationship with Aspen, Celeste and America become friends only ending up being their friendly moment together, and Kriss was about to be chosen until the shooting happened again. Maxon is taken to the hospital, the King and Queen die leaving everything to the charge of the Heir who is obviously Maxon and as to the happily ever after, Maxon and America get married. HOORAY!

    I did not read any of the books when they were released. Sadly, I was not into reading when Kiera published her first one. That follows a sad story from me. Moving on, we come to a book where the main focus and its plot is about Princess Eadlyn Schreave, the Heir to the throne. Can we take a minute and just admire her?

    Oh wait, there is nothing to admire about her!

    After finally owning the Heir, I was actually glad I would finally meet these upcoming characters and learn their stories, only ending up wasting my time by reading about a spoiled, rude princess. I get it, she's a princess. She gets what she wants right? That's just royalty and how rich people live right? They get what they want when they want. Well, Eadlyn certainly does.

    Sometimes having the urge to put this book down and leave it as a DNF book, I forced myself to continue on reading just to see if my thoughts and opinions would change and also because I own The Crown so I kind of need to read this one to understand the final and 5th book right? But instead, I regret purchasing The Crown and wishing I never wasted 3 hours with this book. There weren't any changes. Eadlyn was still a bitch, rude, foolish, stubborn and still very spoiled. She is supposed to be a princess!

    Now, tell me, is this really how a princess, being the daughter from a gorgeous man that cared for his kingdom when he was only a prince, for his family, his soon-to-be-wife, his people, his country, himself, and being a daughter of a woman that never though she'd become queen, cared for her family the most, didn't want to compete in a competition with other girls over a guy she didn't care for at first because she preferred to stay with her family and make sure they'd be taken care for, is supposed to act?

    “Fox Wesley, Your Highness.”

    I tilted my head in greeting. “A pleasure.”

    He took in a breath. “You are so beautiful.”

    “So I've been told. You can go now.”


    Um, last time I was taught about how princesses should be taught (don't ask) I remember being told they must be kind, caring, make sure their words are said with wisdom and care, and make sure they talk politely with manners. I mean, yeah there's more to it but that's some of the main points.

    “Hale Garner, Your Highness.”

    “Welcome sir.”

    “Thank you so much for letting us into your house. I hope to prove myself worthy or your hand more and more each day.”

    I cocked my head curiously. “Really? And how will you do that today?”

    He smiled. “Well, today I would let you know I come from an excellent family. My father used to be a Two.”

    “Is that all?”

    Underrated, he went on. “I think it's pretty impressive.”

    “Not as impressive as having a Father who used to be a One.”

    His face faltered.

    “You may go.”

    Oh for fucks sake!

    I expected her to be like America, maybe even better and have a different character to play but no! She was the most boring, ignorant, selfish and had no interest in personalities. Being the royal princess she is, she was someone I consider to be the most awful person to read about.

    “I'm the princess. I have everything.”

    Yep you sure have it all! You have a horrible attitude, being a princess that thinks she has the strongest power in all of her country. You have so many fucking tiaras yet you cry over one that is taken by a 15 year-old. You think you're making things right when you're making everything worse. You think everyone should love you because of who you are. She thought she was queen already and that's what made me hate her more. Well, I guess that's how I took them. Here are 3 examples:

    I knew they loved me, of course. I was going to be their queen.

    “I’m the next queen of Illea. I’m scared of nothing.”

    Because who was I really? One half of a set of twins. The heir to the throne. One of the most powerful people in the world. The biggest distraction in the country.

    Yes her people definitely love her! She was saying that when she was with the Selected, standing like the perfect princess she thinks she is with her head high and making sure her tiara wasn't falling until people threw tomatoes and eggs at her. She said she was strong and didn't need to be rescued yet she went crying to her parents and wished everything was over. Hale and Henri even protected her.... Shame.

    I've never been so upset with a book. In The Selection, all books had their own improvements.

    The Selection - ★★★½

    The Elite - ★★★★

    The One - ★★★★★

    Honestly, who does Eadlyn think she really is? She isn't queen yet so like calm the fuck down and take a seat in your precious rich seat! Also, another thing that bothered me from Eadlyn is how the text made it seem like she wanted her own mother to fucking die! The Heir, according to Google means:

    Now, that that's clarified, what I said about her wanting to become queen might just make sense. But if it doesn't, let me make it easier to understand.

    Eadlyn keeps saying "she will be queen soon" or "the people love me because I'm gonna be queen soon" or just "I was going to be their queen." Now, that may or may not make sense, but that's okay, I'm not done.

    If Eadlyn wants to be queen so bad already, why doesn't she just become queen? Oh right because she's just a princess and her mother is currently alive and ruling the kingdom with her husband who is also alive and the King. Because heir obviously means taking the title of the ruler after they are dead (that's actually in my words but whatever) and since Eadlyn keeps telling herself she will queen very soon so that is why she needs to improve her life, in my opinion, she makes it sound like she wants her own mother to be dead already so she can rule and have the kingdom for herself. It's like she wants to rule the whole place and not bother caring what is happening with the country! She makes it seem like her life is so stressful and hard to live in and wishing to be in someone else's shoes. She makes it seem like nobody else has their life to worry about. I'm sorry but her telling herself she is the heir to the throne just makes it seem like she wants America to die. What the fuck!?

    Now, I think I'm done ranting. Wait I don't know if that's considered ranting actually. Anyways, can I just move on to the actual review now and add things I did not like. Maybe some things I did like as well? Wait there um, there wasn't anything I actually liked so that's checked off.

    None of the guys really bothered me. They actually seemed interested in Eadlyn, not really realizing her real life and how stuck up she really is. As to the guys she eliminated, well, I don't blame her. Especially the sweaty one, the one who immediately first asked when he gets payed, and the one that just looked at her breasts right away. She's princess I know she must show some cleavage blah blah blah but like, he could've properly introduced himself like everyone else did and not introduce himself by locking his eyes with her breast like nooo man no.

    Believe me, it upsets me giving this book a 1-star rating when I had both high doubts but good expectations for it. I have heard that her character development grows and changes into someone better and even someone who was actually not expected in the final installment! I own The Crown and can't wait to start it because I do have hopes for it. Most are for Eadlyn but I also want her to choose the right guy. (Please don't tell me who she chose, thank you!)

    Like I said before, this was a disappointment for me. And believe me, I hate writing negative reviews and rating books a low star, but even if I re-read it, and even after I read The Crown, I don't think much or even anything will change. Instead, depending on how The Crown goes, this book might just decrease. Depends if more is learned and discovered and if more developments happen. A change might happen but it won't be positive. The book was found just plain boring. Everything was boring. The plot was boring. The characters were boring. The dates were boring. None of the characters had developments as well. Maybe they did but I just didn't see them. The romance was nothing like in The Selection. Here, it felt awkward. In the beginning, the dates didn't feel like real and actual dates. The dates didn't feel right for any of the Selected.

    “I'm smart and beautiful and strong. I don't need to be rescued.”

    Oh please!

    As final and overall thoughts, The Heir was nothing like The Selection. Any really! She eliminated contestants right away even when she didn't get to meet them! Nothing felt right and nothing caught my attention. Besides wishing to punch Eadlyn at times, nothing else was found. ...more

    “I only have one heart, and I’m saving it.”

    Why do I always finish these books in tears?

    Okay, so it’s no secret that I loved the Selection books, and I have to admit, that I loved this one too

    Eadlyn was a character that at times came across as bratty, selfish, and totally full of herself. But then she’d do something that would make me laugh, or something so outrageous whilst totally owning it, and I totally fell in love with her. Sure she was naïve, and her youth worked against her at times, b
