Kiera Cass's #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series has captured the hearts of readers from its very first page. Now the end of the journey is here. Prepare to be swept off your feet by The Crown--the eagerly awaited, wonderfully romantic fifth and final book in the Selection series.
In The Heir, a new era dawned in the world of The Selection. Twenty years have passed since America Singer and Prince Maxon fell in love, and their daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own.

"Eikko, I need you to hear it. Just once, I need you to know it without doubt. I love you."-Eadlyn
You are always Eadlyn.
You are always the queen.
You are everything

"Every moment we'd ever had together danced through my head. His awkward stance the day we first met, and how I scolded him before the parade for biting his nails. The way he protected me when the fight broke out in the kitchen, and how my eyes flitted to him over and over when the boys were deep in prayer outside the hospital wing. And, most astonishingly, the moment in the Women's Room when Camille asked who filled my head, and how hard I fought to stop myself from saying his name out loud then and there."
"But the truth is, love is as much fate as it is planning, as much beauty as it is disaster. Finding a prince might mean kissing a lot of frogs. Or kicking a lot of frogs out of your house.

Happily ever after could be waiting in a field a mile wide. Or a window as narrow as seven minutes."
"Maybe it's not the first kisses that are supposed to be special. Maybe it's the last ones."
