Before Reading…

Pre-ordered! Can’t Wait!

I love this series! I hope this has more about the war – and Marlee! Do you remember the odd conversation between Marlee and America near the end of “The Selection”? I think she might have something (or someone?) at her home who she is in trouble with. Or she could be involved with the war? What if she’s in love with a rebel? Or the/a leader of the rebels? Just putting ideas out there…

Team Maxon!

But wait! What of this other girl (Delphine?) in Maxon’s life? Will she make an appearance? Can’t wait for “The Prince” to come out so that we can find out more! As well as the first two chapters of “The Elite”.

– Oh why do we have to wait???????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After Reading…

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! It just can’t end like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I melted…

I loved it. “The Elite” had me hook, line and sinker right from the first line.

The plot was complex, the characters deep, and secrets revealed. Trust was broken and decisions made.

You could sympathise with the characters and clearly see them struggle and grow, making mistakes and asumptions just like anyone else – too often characters tend to lack this vital character development.

This book was everything I could have wished for and more, and yet…

…And yet Cass didn’t just conclude it, leave it at a point where it could be classed as “finished”. No. She took it to a whole new level, making it as though the real fight was only just beginning.

– Not only did she execute this perfectly, but every page, every detail, every experience that America and her fellow characters had were important, they played a big part in not only character development, but plot line execution.

This story is one-in-a-million and deserves more than just 5 stars.

Can’t wait for the next one! ^_^
