The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection. 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 being 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.
I loved reading every single word of this book. Yes I wanted to kill some of the characters but I still loved it. I can't wait till the next book comes out and was going crazy for it as soon as I turned the last page.
The Elite by Kiera Cass, is spectacular a well thought out and brilliant book that pulled me in with the very first word. I'm still not sure if the first book or this book is my favorite of this series, because both amazed me. Thoughtout this whole book though, I wasn't sure who to trust. That's why I liked it so much though. I couldn't tell who was telling the truth. I loved how the author did that for this book. The first one I was so caught up in the love story, but for this one I was so caught up in the story and the history of the kingdom. I still have unanswered questions and I can't wait for the next book to hopefully get more of them answered.
I screamed and cried reading this book and I think you will agree with me if you read it as well, but of course every book isn't the same for every person, but if you liked the first one I know you will love this one as well. The way the author describes everything in this book is perfection and I can see it in my mind as I read, which always signals a great book to me. Oh and I must say as well that I now loath a character in this series, I wont say who HE is but I do hate him with passion.
Oh and I must talk for a few seconds about the cover of The Elite. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Just like the first one I can't get enough of this cover. I so wish I could have this dress and wear it somewhere. Its beautiful. I think this one tops the first one.
I have to give this book the rating below, its way to fantastic not to give it this rating.
