Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn't sure where her heart lies. When she's with Maxon, she's swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can't dream of begin with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over-and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she's made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she's struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.
Once again, the continuation of The Selection left me wanting more. Kiera Cass is a phenomenal writer and I can't wait to read more of her work.
First, if you have not read The Selection, I strongly recommend you stop reading this review. There are Selection SPOILERS! Go read The Selection, then come back for the review. Go....NOW!!!
No we are down to six girls, the Elite. Maxon and America are more then friends and Aspen is in the wings, hoping that America has still chosen him.
I love ow the characters grown in this book. Even those I don't care for (Aspen and Celeste), I understand their purpose and they do their job well!
Lets get down to business! Many secrets are revealed in this book. Can America do anything else to ruin her image inf front of the King and Queen? Attacks from the Northern and Southern rebels are more frequent.
There is more action, drama, mystery and romance in The Elite.
If I could choose Prince Maxon, I would! I have completely fallen for our Prince. No, I don't agree with all his choices but his heart is pure. He has endured much from the King.
Even though America irritates me with her secret meetings with Aspen, I am still rooting for her.
I enjoyed the Halloween Celebration, minus the Marlee incident. My heart broke into a million pieces when I read that part!
I can't wait for The One, released on May 6, 2014.
I highly recommend The Elite.
I gave it ♥♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads.
