The Crown by Kiera Cass
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book... this book was kind of a let down. I mean, just kind of. Not exactly, but it didn't go the way I thought it would and while I'm sad about that, I didn't hate it.
So, if we revisit my thoughts on Eadlyn's first novel, I was Team Kile. I'm not going to give away who she ends up with, but this whole novel sort of took a turn for the "what the hell just happened" in all aspects.
Eadlyn is a great Queen and I think she will do great things for Illea. But I felt like either Kiera Cass needed to shove a lot of things in this novel or she was just done with this world, because events happened that were out of nowhere and there was really no build up to it. So to say I was disappointed with this novel is an understatement. I like Eadlyn's choice and I think she will be happy in the end, but the novel could have portrayed it better.
Yes, this is a criptic review that will leave you wondering "what the hell is she talking about" but I'm not giving anything away. If you want to know, you'll need to get the book and read it for yourself. Maybe you will like it more than I did and get the fuzzy feelings that I got when I finished America's story, so I'm not going to ruin it for anyone.
I'm glad I got this book and I'm glad I finished the series. It was a great world Cass created and I know I will definitely revisit America's story time and time again :)
