"THE SELECTION changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. Now, only one will claim Prince Maxon’s heart…
For the four girls who remain at the palace, the friendships they’ve formed, rivalries they’ve struggled with and dangers they’ve faced have bound them to each other for the rest of their lives.
Now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.
America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown – or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realises just how much she stands to lose – and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants." -taken from goodreads

This is the final book in the Selection trilogy and it concluded remarkably well. This was by far the best book in the trilogy and I really felt like it this one had far more action and plot than the other two. I felt like their was so much more development with the characters, especially the other contestants in the Selection.

There was a little bit more of a development with the world and the Rebels which was done pretty well but still didn't make the read totally dark as most dystopians are.

Maxon was always my choice right from the start, I never really got Aspen and America's relationship at all I thought that Aspen was so obnoxious and irritating, he had no personality other than acting like the hard shipped six.

I did think that Americas's humility did her well but occasionally it did seem as if she was trying too hard to be the selfless lower caste.

Anyway, all in all I think that this trilogy is a really easy light read that has kept me entertained and although yes, it does have its imperfections, it will be a great re-read and I did really like it.
