The Selection began with thirty-five girls.
Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?
America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away.
The Elite by Kiera Cass is the second book in The Selection series and starts fairly close after the events of book one. Whereas book one was a three for me, this one went down a grade.
Now, I’ve jumped ahead on this series with the two book spin off. I want to state that so that you understand that I don’t feel that a writer can’t get better. She did, but this book was just sad in comparison to book one.
There was no solid storyline. It felt like a hodge podge of events to try and spruce up action. When palace life got too boring, rebels attack. I think they attacked about three times in this book alone. And may I add that there are two different rebel factions? Both of which have no name for their organizations! Seriously, it feels like just an afterthought minus a world development.
The only time there was some kind of character development was near the end with Prince Maxon. Oh man, I had some feels there.
But, all in all, I felt this book was probably not needed for the story overall. I’m still going to read the third book though.
Final Rating: 2/5
