There’ve been some misunderstandings about exactly how many books will be in the series, when they’re out, and what they even are. I try to keep people updated as best I can, so I’m making this post for reference. Hope this helps!
There will be, in total, five full-length novels in the Selection world:
- The Selection (2012)
- The Elite (2013)
- The One (2014)
- The Heir (2015)
- The Untitled Fifth Book (2016)
The first three are from America’s perspective, and the final two are from her daughter, Eadlyn’s.
There will also be a companion to the Selection Series entitled Happily Ever After which will be out October 2015. The contents of Happily Ever After are as follows:
- The Prince (with the two bonus chapters), Maxon’s novella
- The Guard, Aspen’s novella
- The Queen, Amberly’s novella
- The Favorite, Marlee’s novella
- Three scenes from Celeste’s POV
- Lucy’s scene (bonus scene from The One)
- The bonus epilogue
- Where are they now?
- A map
- Various illustrations
These will be ALL the works I make related to the Selection world. I have plans for other books (including the totally revamped version of The Siren that will be out in early 2016) and some other things I’m playing with. So this isn’t the end of my books period… just the ones in Illéa. Feel free to leave questions, and I’ll try to make this post as complete as possible. Thanks!
