The One by Kiera Cass

The One - Kiera Cass

PUBLICATION: May 6th 2014 by HarperTeen




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.





Kiera Cass does not disappoint! This book is yet another awesome and fast read. It ended the way I wanted it to which made it even more awesome. It’s as if the author read not only my mind but my heart as well. I loved and hated some characters even more.


Even though I was irritated with America most of the time, I still love how she had a strong personality and ideals and wasn't afraid to stand up for people or for what she believed in even though she made rush decisions. In this book, she was finally able to decide who to pick and was precise with her feeling toward Aspen and Maxon which made my annoyance toward her somewhat lessened.


The only problem I had with it was that the last chapters were too fast that the shocking events and happenings on some characters didn't have that much of an impact to me because I felt like it didn’t gave me the chance to let those sink in because one minute a big thing happens and not a few paragraphs, another big one would occur.


I loved every book in this trilogy! I don’t know which is my favorite out of the three, but this is now definitely included in my favorites. I cannot wait for The Heir to be released next year!
