Note: This post reviews the third book of The Selection Series. You may like to read the first two books in the series, The Selection and The Elite, before reading this review.

Maxon has narrowed the Selection competition down to the last four girls. Celeste, high and mighty though she be, is a solid choice, and the people’s favorite. Kriss is still there because she genuinely loves Maxon, and he cares for her, too. Elise is really only there still because she has relations in New Asia, which makes her a good option politically.

And then there is America. Maxon decides his next move will be to make his people fall in love with her, just like he already has. If she is to be the future queen, then she must be accepted and loved by the people of Illea.

America, struggling to choose between Maxon and Aspen, has already made up her mind. But has she made her decision too late?

I wasn’t disappointed in the conclusion to the Selection. Cass wrapped things up beautifully and certainly left me wanting more. I don’t want to give too much of the finale away, so I am going to leave it at that. What I will say is, this is one of my favorite book series, and I cannot wait to reread them. AMAXICA!
