Let me just start by saying this book is almost nothing like the first two books in The Selection series. The series has captured the hearts of readers all over, with its tale of princes and princesses, love and luxuries. The story that sings with romance has swept readers off their feet. But The One? It’s a whole other adventure. The third novel in the series is one you do NOT want to miss. Please, read the first two just to read the third! It’s truly astonishing.
America is lost in the walls of the Kingdom, her heart growing stronger and more wanting towards Maxon. With only three other girls left in the Selection, each of them are on edge – hoping and praying it will be them who is chosen for the heart of the prince. But the Rebels are advancing towards their plans of destruction. Fear corrodes each soul that lies in the kingdom’s palace. Dangerous threats are rising and the destruction of the people’s way of life is in danger. And the Rebels main target is the royal family. But within the darkness that slowly sweeps the land lies a light of strength. America has fought her way through bad and good – and she’s not about to give up now.
This last installment of this particular storyline, is filled with risks and danger around every corner. The fate of their beloved land is standing on the edge of destruction. But love makes its way to the surface, even in the toughest of times and worry. I promise you will not be able to put down this thrilling, but lovely third novel. The One has out done the others before it by far.
