Description from Goodreads.com:
The time has come for one winner to be crowned.
When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
I don't even know where to begin with this review. I can say that I really ended up loving this book and I was very worried I wouldn't since I didn't like how The Elite ended. I think the best part of this book was the drama. It was packed full of it and it had me addicted. So much death, drama, and love happen in this book. Everything felt unexpected and like anything could happen on the next page. I really liked that.
I feel like America finally gets her head out of her butt in this one. In The Elite I was so mad with her, because I felt pretty confident with how she felt after The Selection and then she just changes her mind in book two and leads everyone on. Even the guys changed in book 2. Both of their personalities switched and left me not knowing who I wanted her to be with anymore, but luckily everything finally sorts itself out in book 3.
It ended exactly how I wanted it to end and I am very happy with that. I will warn you that everything will crash and burn in the end. You think everything is great and then chaos ensues. You will speed read till the end and I promise you will end up liking how it all ends.
I am also extremely happy knowing that there will be at least 2 more books in the series. I thought it was all going to end here, but luckily Kiera Cass is coming out with another one this May and then one more that is still untitled sometime later. I would tell you what book 4 is called, but it will ruin the ending of book 3 for you. It is also told in someone else's point of view, which I am super stoked about, because it will really change what we see coming up. I can't wait for the change!
I really really enjoyed this "conclusion". It was filled with drama and I never knew what to expect to happen on the next page. I am very happy with the way it ended as I feel like she picked the right guy. I cannot wait for the upcoming books in the series. I thought this was going to be it, but lucky for me there will be more in a whole new point of view!!
