“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.”

Summary

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.

Personal Experiences

I just want to say, before I start, that this book is by far my favorite, and I love this series. Now the technical stuff:
In my personal opinion, the series could’ve ended right here. The ending is very final, and could potentially lead to other ideas. I don’t mind the series continuing, but as I have repeatedly said, to a point where it is almost redundant, this series would’ve been a fantastic trilogy. As of the third book, the reader witnesses a great deal of character development and the placement and plot of the book is very inspiring. I am very content with the series, as of now, and hope to continue this feeling throughout the final two sequels. Four and a half stars. 🌑🌑🌑🌑🌓
