From the Back Cover

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.

I have absolutely loved this series from start to finish and have read the first 3 books; The Selection (The Selection, Book 1), The Elite (The Selection, Book 2) and The One (The Selection, Book 3) in three days, which nowadays with two little ones is few and far between when I manage to do this but I have been hooked to this series from the first few pages. I can't wait for the next book in the series; The Heir (The Selection, Book 4) (The Selection series) which I have pre-ordered and is due out at the beginning of May this year. The only thing I can compare this series to if asked would be one of those American reality shows like The Batchelor but set in a dystopian future. I would never watch anything like The Batchelor as it's definitely not my sort of thing and so I am extremely surprised how much I absolutely loved these books to be honest but I did and can't wait for the next one.

The Selection series is set in a dystopian future after World War 4 and following America being taken over at one point by China a man called Gregory Illea manages to help the country regain independence. As a result he becomes King and renames the country Illea. However that is not the only thing he re-organises and he re-organises the country into Castes which number from One to Eight.

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.

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.
