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, Ameica realizes just how much she stands to lose - and how hard she' ll have to fight for the future she wants.
Again there is ANOTHER pretty dress to admire on the cover 🙂 yay! Although on The One it is white so not so much a fan as the other dresses on the Selection covers (I don’t really like white clothes).
Ok so we ended how I predicted way, way back. But there were plenty of twists and turns and at one point I even had a moment of doubt. Which to be honest was slightly uncalled for. But The One is definitely more action-based that the previous stories. We find out what the rebels one, America gets injured, she has to go home for a family crisis and so much more. It’s good, okay?
And despite my claims of predictability, there are still moments that are shocking, even unexpected. And I liked that despite knowing how the story was going to end, there where times when I doubted myself, and times when events were unforeseeable.
This was a perfect way to the end the trilogy (yes I know that there is another book – but that has a different protagonist and so can be considered separately).
This is a page-turner and one that has become one of my not so guilty pleasures. Utter joy to read and cannot not wait to read the next instalment!
