Book Review | The Heir by Kiera Cass


Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.


Question: Does this count as a review even if you didn’t finish the book?

I wanted to buy the physical book in hardbound but since I was in a book buying ban, I decided not to cross my policy and downloaded the epub version. But looking on my screen I was happy that I talked myself out of it.


I don’t feel any connection with the characters and to note that I was 10 chapters in. The POV of Eadlyn was really shallow and annoying (atleast America’s tolerable), I really see her as a bitch and not princess material (she’s not even funny like Mia in the Princess Diaries).

I can’t. I just can’t. I can’t even rate it.
