The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass

The One  - Kiera Cass



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.



My thoughts:


After the last book I was a little worried about this book. But I’m happy to report that I liked this book much better than the second book and I’m glad I stuck with reading it. No matter how much I disliked America in the second book.

There is a lot happening in this book, with the selection, the rebels (north and south), families and friends, love and betrayal. This book also seems a lot darker in nature than the last two books, while we still get some humor; we also get a lot of heartbreak. And not just once, and it hits where it hurts the most. There is a lot of loss and we lose quite a few people but there is also some hope, hope of change.

While this book has a happy ending, it takes a lot of grief to get us to there.
