Yeah! So excited!!! MaxMerca for the win! I honestly cannot wait to see how this suspenseful romance novel will end. Cass's books keep you waiting in pure self torture of what will happen next. Will America get caught with Aspen, will America decide (finally), or will it be herself for the win. Who knows. Her books are definately a top pick for any romace lover, and also good for ones who likes some sass. Pick these books up, I dare you.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. That is really All. I. Can. Say. after reading this. This series is so amazing... I started this yesterday and read for an hour or two. I finished the book at exactly 8:47 tonight. And let me just say one thing, I LOVE YOU MAXON SCHREAVE. Oh and maybe one more thing.... If you have not already, pick up the Selection and stay up all night reading if you must, read the Elite, and finally READ THE ONE!!!! Read. Ok why are you still reading this review instead of reading this series? I thought I had made myself perfectly clear. You. Are. Still. Here. READ. Ok that's it I'm done writing now so that I am no longer distracting for those of you who would rather read my review on the most amazing books ever than actuay READING the most amazing books ever. GO AND READ ALREADY. NOW.

Smashing Finale Whew...what a read!  I don't want to give too much away but for those of you who are romantics like I am, who also love twists and turns, and of course love our feisty America and moral compass, The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass will not disappoint!  Cass wraps up her trilogy masterfully and gives readers a sense of hope in our constantly dysfunctional world. Let me just start by saying, I have absolutely not idea how writers keep everything straight!  Like all the little details...it's incredible.  Cass will pull something out from The Selection (The Selection #1) or The Elite (The Selection #2) and makes readers stop and think, "oh right, that happened."  Master of her cart that Cass.  So beyond her impeccable attention to detail Cass was able to write a clear and loud voice for America that stayed relatively steady throughout the series.   America has got to be one of my favorite leading ladies if only for her flair for the dramatics and her clever ways to get around King Clarkson time and time again.  I can feel her struggle and confusion around Prince Maxon and Aspen.  One one hand she has familiarity of a boy she thought she had a forever with and on the other hand she has a prince who snuck in unexpectedly and turned her world and heart upside-down.  So who will she choose?   The world building continues in The One and I loved how it really showcases the differences between life in the palace and life beyond with the rebels and how that line is becoming more and more blurred as the conflict starts to seep within the walls of Illea. It's a good social/political discussion and makes us all pause to think about the differences between classes and how that either empowers people or disenfranchises and that unbalance can lead to unrest and that unrest to rebellion.   The overlying plot, however, is mainly centered around the selection process and the growing relationship between America and Prince Maxon.  Can either ever fully trust the other?  Would you?  I have always wondered how those girls of The Bachelorette do it, knowing that every night he's cuddling with other girls.  That is of course America's concern as well.  How does she know that she can trust Maxon when he could very well be doing the exact same things and saying the same words to the remaining ladies?  On Maxon's side too, he know's America has a past and has loved, and can someone really love him for him despite all the chains and responsibilities of palace life?  Will they both be able to open their hearts fully to another or does a certain soldier *cough* Aspen *cough* still hold the key to America's heart? All in all, a really wonderful read and wrap up to the series.  I could not have ended it better in my head.  I for one, was complete happy and at peace for how Cass closed up The Selection Series.  Bravo!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for this talented author.

I love this book more than I could express to you guys.! But I also hate the ending. I was totally disappointed when I reached the ending. Please, Kiera, write another book! We need to know what happens! Or, please write a sequel series. Just please, with all my heart I say this, tell us what happens. I will need Aspen, America, Maxon, Mary, Lucy, Anne, and whoever else I left out, in my life through these amazing books for a little while longer. So please, don't leave me hanging.

Such a a wonderful book to end this amazing story, I actually read the whole book in about 5 hours. It was definetly worth the wait! My only side note is that I felt the ending was a little rushed. I would have liked to see 20 or so more pages about the aftermath of the climax. Other than that, I highly recommend the book!

Read it all through the night when it was released, finshed it in 8 hours. Could NOT put it down. I would recommend this series to my best friend and my worst enemy just so they can see what i got to experience! Lol. Trust me read it. And now that they are all released you dont have wait to read the next book, like me. Keep going till the end - then again you wont have choice because the story wont let you put it down.

Wow. I feel as if I just lost a friend, after following this series from the beginning. What an absolutely gorgeous way to end the series. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Mrs. Cass definitely left me with a feeling of completeness and had me on the edge of my seat the whole book. You will cry. You will laugh. And you'll fall even more in love with the characters you already know. This book is amazing, and now that it's all over...I don't know what to do.

I had been waiting to read this book for so long and I was excited when i finally had the chance to get it. It's a real page turner and emotional roller coaster, but I loved it and this series will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you Kiera Cass for being amazing and writing this series!!

I have been with this series from the beginning and fell in love with it from the start. I love this series so much, along with the concept of the rebels and the complex love story. Even though Maxons charactrer got me very annoyed and doubtful (I'm still team Maxon) at times, Im satisfied from this ending: given we have a sense of closure and have the answers we need. Thank you, Kierra Cass for this beautiful story
