Wow, it’s been a few days since I last posted, but all of that time was spent reading this book so I could review it for y’all. This is another spoiler-free review, let’s get into it.
The Elite is the second installment in Kiera Cass’s five-book series called The Selection, and she did not disappoint. There really isn’t a lot to say about a sequel, especially in a spoiler-free review, but I’m going to try.
Our main character, America Singer, is now a part of the Elite, which is what the final six of the Selection are called.
Right in the beginning, those final six are burnt down to five, and then to four toward the end of the book.
In this book, America faces almost going home a lot more than in the previous book, which is saying a lot, considering the fact that America doesn’t exactly like to follow the rules.
In this book, you actually get to know Queen Amberly, and later, King Clarkson.
Quick warning, the queen is a sweetheart, and the king a an a**hole. You see both of their personalities shine through in this book especially.
You also get to learn a lot more about the Elite (Marlee, Kriss, Celeste, Natalie, Elise.) and what they want out of the competition. We meet Elise, a girl who wasn’t mentioned before Maxon announced that he was going to narrow the girls down to six. We learn about Kriss’s feelings for Maxon, and how America feels about Maxon, too.
We also learn that America is terrible at keeping secrets, but you all knew that already, right?
Overall, I do give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
Obviously, you should read The Selection first, and I will link to my review of that below:
I hope you have a good rest of the day, and I’ll see you next time!
