I flew through THE SELECTION last year, and I flew through the sequel, THE ELITE as well. This picks up where book one left off, the few remaining girls at the castle still battling for Maxon’s heart and hand in marriage. America is still trying to figure out who she wants to become and if she could every possibly fit into life as a One. A future with Maxon seems like a very real possibility, and yet Aspen (still serving in the guard) is a constant reminder of her old life. And when after a shocking and unexpected revelation, she’s left to second-guess everything.
We get a bit more information on the rebel forces beyond the castle in this book, and America’s family see a bit more page-time, especially her father (which I found an endearing touch). Fans of THE SELECTION are sure to be pleased with this sequel.
