Description: 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.


Uhggggggggggg. I loved this series so much and it was such a  guilty pleasure. That being said this last book was just all over the place. There was action, betrayal, redemption and romance out the whazoo. Keira seemed to cram so much information about her world into this last book that it left my head spinning. I’m still not totally in love with the idea of the selection because it gives Maxon the ability to smooch and be with other girls like sampling before he picks the final one. *gag* And I still absolutely loath his father. I can’t really go into detail without completely spoiling the other books but I’m just happy that American and Maxon’s story has finally come to an end. I realize there is two other books based on their daughter (spoiler???) but I probably won’t ever get around to reading them.
