It Was Alright...

Just like the review I did for The Heir, I didn't enjoy this series as I did with the first three books. Maybe because it was Eadlyn? I don't know. I felt like this last book was rushed a little and I wasn't quite happy with the fella she decided to choose when there were total chemistry with her and that certain fella, but nope, she chose someone else instead. I get it, she chose for love, but still, I felt like this book was rushed (granted it was thinner than the other books). But in the end, it was still a good book and I do believe this book too made me cry. Okay, I cried for all of her books, don't judge me :P
