For a person that doesn't normally have an interest in reading or have the time of day, these books really captivated me. I sped through the first 3 books, in the soon to be 5 book series. However, The Heir has been a change of pace because the narrator and perspective is different than the previous 3. This series is chalk full of romance and cliff hangers. I think I spent most of my time frustrated at the main character, America Singer. I typically don't mind love triangles but this one really got on my nerves, in a good way. *THIS IS WHERE I MAY SPOIL THINGS* I just wish that America, throughout the book, would have been more considerate of Maxon and not have pursued Aspen during her stay at the palace. For a girl that is and always will be team Maxon...I thought the 3rd book was would have been a great way to just end the series. It's frustrating that the narrator of the 4th book isn't America, and I find that very difficult to keep my attention. I am reading The Heir right now and I'm not so engrossed in it as I was the first 3. I look forward to seeing if The Heir proves it self to be something, and I'm eager to read the 5th and final book when it comes out in early May of 2016.
