Review: The Elite

Only six girls are left in the competition to win prince Maxon's heart. 

From what we saw in The Selection, the first book in the series, Maxon prefers the company of America over the other girls. But how long will his interest last when America is not ready to let go of her ex-boyfriend? Worse, what can happen if Maxon finds out he is being betrayed?

Kiera Cass caught the readers interest by mixing dystopia and romance. Thankfully, this book isn't a repetition of the previous. Instead of jealous girls backstabbing one another, Maxon gets to deal with rebels endangering the entire kingdom. What good does it do to win a crown when there will be no throne to sit on? If America is going to stay with Maxon, then she'd better do it out of love. 

Love-o-meter: Sex, betrayal, and pleasurable indiscretions.

The series conclusion comes out in May 2014.


  1. I actually didn't like this one as much as The Selection......I hope that The One is a good conclusion though!

  2. A friend of mine has been trying to get me to read this series for a year now. Even though your review surely has spiked my interest, I am still not completely sold on it. I am afraid of it being just too un-relatable and similar to "The Bachelor", for some reason I can just not befriend the idea of such a "competition of the hearts". Maybe I'll finally read it after the final book comes out.

    1. It does kind of sound like a bachelor series, right? But in a way, isn't that how love is -- I mean we are all fish in the sea until someone catches our interest. Hopefully they decide to keep us and not throw us back into the ocean scared :( lol
