It’s over and I’m so sad! The Selection series is one of my favourite dystopia stories ever and I couldn’t help but be excited and nervous for The One. I was dying to see how it would all end for my favourite characters and it was definitely spectacular.

As the competition for Maxon’s heart and crown draws to an end, America finds herself in a difficult situation because the rebels are determined to put an end to the casts and ultimately take over the throne. But can America change the fate they’ve all been drawn or will she lose everything she’s worked for?

I’m so thrilled with The One. What a fantastic and beautiful end to end the series, bravo Kiera! Of course I was worried with how things would turn out because of how much I love this series but I believe Kiera Cass did the best she possibly could with the ending and it really reflects in the end. It was exciting, dangerous and very exhilarating, not to mention swoon-worthy, heart-breaking and of course full of love.

I didn’t think America and Maxon could get any cuter but they did. They are the perfect match – even despite the casts they are given. They really bring the best out of each other and even though they may not agree on everything, they complement each other so well. They are fantastic together and their love really shines throughout this book.

In all, The One is simply a breath-taking ending and it was more than I could have possibly hoped for. I cannot wait to revisit this series in a few years and start it all over.

*squeals... I have been waiting for this book for soooo long! So when it finally came through in the library for me, nice and shiny and new I couldn't wait to get stuck in. This was going to be EPIC. Never mind the fact that I am already in the middle of 2 other books, they immediately got pushed to the side so I could start this one.


America is now in the final four in the Selection process, Maxon is coming closer to making his choice. One girl will be his Princess, the other three will be sent home. But with the threat of Rebel attacks on the Kingdom he has to try and do what is best for his country. As his love for America deepens things get more difficult, but America is still torn between Maxon and Aspen. Her heart says one thing and her head says another. The King certainly doesn't approve of America and is trying to get her kicked out of the runnings.

I had so many expectations for this book, and I knew who I wanted Maxon to pick and there were questions I needed to have answered, and I am pleased to say it gave me all I wanted and more. This book was sooo good, I could not put it down and when I had to, I just wanted a chance to get back to it.

Celeste, Kriss, America and Elise are in the final four, I never liked Celeste but you see so much more of her in this book and out of all of them she has the most character development which I was actually pleasantly surprised by. Kriss and Elise were never particularly strong contenders in my view, but you see more of how and why they got this far and although I still didn't root for them, I could appreciate them more.

There are a lot of twists in this book that I just did not expect and every single one of them made me want to keep reading even more.

I have been putting off this review because I didn’t know how I could do the book justice (or do it spoiler free without ranting/fangirling) and that’s why I’m keeping it short.

After finishing The Elite my main concern was whether or not America would once again be a whiny, judgemental, and plain right annoying girl but after she made her decision I am overjoyed to say that she truly tries to stick with it and it’s not one of those snap-back emotional decisions we’ve seen her make too many times to count. She also finally sticks up for herself instead of cowering in the corner then escaping as quickly as possible to go cry in her room, she even talks back to the King! Who we can safely say doesn’t get that a lot…

Maxon was pure perfection in this book, and this is most prominent where I can’t explain how much of a great character he is because while at times he is the most flawed person around, he makes up for it with his acts of compassion and he always has good intentions under it all. Aspen on the other hand is still as troublesome as ever, and I don’t like him if only for the fact that he creates a drift between America and Maxon. HOWEVER, I finally understand his presence in the book and there’s even a bonus chapter about him in Barnes and Noble’s special edition of The One.

The plot itself is a mix of everything really: its heart-wrenching but also heart-warming, it’s fast paced but gives you time to breathe, it’s somewhat predictable but gives you some whirlwind twists and I can safely say that it truly pulls on your emotions. I can also say that Kiera Cass has followed my prayer to include a death(s), but I won’t say who and don’t think I can anyway without getting worked up. When I said someone needed to die, this wasn’t what I expected.
