Book Review of The Crown by Kiera Cass

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.

After reading The Heir and enjoying it as well as the books about Eadlyn's parents, I was very much looking forward to the conclusion of this series.  While the voice and pace of this book are the same, I didn't enjoy it as much. Things get serious, as well as I feel like more could have been done to convince me of the love between her and the guy she ends up with. Her actions confused me as she was willing to fight for some things but not others. 

If you have enjoyed this series so far than I would totally say finish it. It isn't bad, but it didn't blow me out of the park. It is still a quick, fun and enjoyable read.

Book Review for Betrayed by P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast

Zoey, High Priestess in training, has managed to settle in at the House of Night and come to terms with the vast powers the Vampyre Goddess Nyx has given her. Just as she finally feels she belongs, the unthinkable happens: human teenagers are being killed, and all evidence points to the House of Night. While danger stalks the humans from Zoey’s old life, she begins to realize that the very powers that make her so unique might also threaten those she loves.

I read book one of this series, Marked, a few months ago.  I enjoyed it so much I was eager to jump on the next book. For the most part this book was just as enjoyable as the first one. I was able to predict the betrayed part, but was left surprised and in tears about other things as well. Zoey's boy drama is still going on and in all honesty, is quite entertaining.

The pace of this story keeps up with the first book and is a quick read. The writing style is the same as well which I enjoy. Overall another great book! Can't wait to read the next one!!
