Series: The Selection #3
The highly anticipated conclusion to Kiera Cass's #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series, The One will captivate readers who love dystopian YA fiction and fairy tales. The One is the perfect finale for fans who have followed America's whirlwind romance since it began--and a swoon-worthy read for teens who have devoured Veronica Roth's Divergent, Ally Condie's Matched, or Lauren Oliver's Delirium.
The Selection changed America Singer's life in ways she never could have imagined. Since she entered the competition to become the next princess of Illéa, America has struggled with her feelings for her first love, Aspen--and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon. Now she's made her choice . . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.
Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series!
I have loved this series from the very beginning, the covers are amazingly
beautiful and you just want to cheer for America all the way through.
Kiera Cass has created a world of competition on a new level, because really
who wouldn't want to compete to be the next princess perhaps one day queen of
anywhere. With dreamlike fantasy gowns and rebels ready to take over or
help, it all depends on what side you're on.
We are back with America and the other three final girls, it's always hard
to make a decision but I feel as if Maxon has one, he's just not 100 percent
sure. America and Maxon get a lot closer in this book during the
beginning, they learn more about the rebels and what they are fighting or not
fighting for. It's all about equality and everyone should have that
luxury. Through it all America stands tall and deep within her she fights
against the king and his demanding ways, she fights for the lower castes and
the public sees that and they adore her more with each action she stands up
There was a lot of drama in this book but there were also a lot of feelings
being thrown around. The final four have finally learned to get along
when true feelings come out. Characters you thought you didn't like you
just seemed to enjoy them more. Then there is the obviousness of America
and Maxon struggling with admitting their feelings for one another. Just
say it already, life is too short, that's my motto. Regardless the story
was great, although it felt rushed at some points it was still a good story
that bought about many different emotions as all books should do. I
laughed, I cried, my heart tugged just a bit, all great things the author
bought out in me.
Overall this was a good ending to the book, the cover is amazing. What
a wonderful dress that anyone would be lucky to have. The ending was pure
sweetness as everything seemed to work out the way it was supposed to work
out. Tear :-) I will say this book seemed to move a little around the
place but I see they were trying to get everything resolved and that they
did. Definitely did shock me how they did it and would have loved more
detail but when it's only one POV it's kind of hard to do, either way, great
ending to a great series. These characters will be missed, but I believe
great things are just beginning with them.
