The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.
America is desperate for more time. But while she's torn between her two futures, the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want - and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

Just like the first it draws you in and keeps you hooked. I listened to the 3rd book as well and loved it. HIGH SUGGEST!
Worth spending your credit on. I bought all 3 and they were good. The Heir isn't though (book 4).
I love this book and the rest as well. Kiera Cass worded thing so perfectly that it kept you on the edge of your seat, aching to know how the love story unravels. I would yell from a roof top if that's what it took to get people to read/listen to this book. The first time I finished it in the time it took too into it to pause. Now I have listened to it so many time I can site parts word for word. As for the performance the way all of the voice actors sounded is just how I at least thought of it. Adding a sound to the words just furthered my love for all the characters.
Much more emotionally invested now, especially after loosing one of the most beloved girls in such a public ostracizing followed by a touching turn of events! Can't wait to see what happens next!
So I have to say this was not one of my favorite books. It took the same turn to me as the Divergent books. Also second guessing. Does he really love me, can I do this, and so on. I guess this is why I shouldn't read YA books. I'm not even sure if I want to see how the series ends after this one. Narration was good but Amy Rubinate is always good. She was the best part of this book if you ask me.
Like other reviewers I got annoyed with Americas indecisiveness between the two boys and her inner turmoil, but it wasn't so bad that I don't want to finish the series. I am definitely going to listen to the next one.
This book is off and running. We learn a lot more about the cast system and the problems and strict rules of this country. There are a lot of secrets revealed.
Very well written and kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to listen to the sequel.
The narration by Amy Rubinate was awesome!
I felt that despite his 'reasons', Maxon displayed selfishness and possessiveness. This made me reluctant to read or listen to the third. However, as I like most everything else, I still want to finish the series. I love the woman narrating, but I could tell that some of the screaming male voices were difficult for her during the climactic scenes. She still does a good job, but her voice is far too breathy and sweet. It made me giggle.
The way she goes back and forth between aspen and maxon is ridiculous. I found myself screaming at the main character for being such an idiot and for not standing up for herself when she should have. I don't know that I'll even make it through the next book, I love princess love stories, but the way maxon is all over all of these girls and she doesn't tell him that it's a big part of why she feels the way she does is infuriating. I guess I just like strong female leads more than the kind that just take the crap given to the and eat it without even attempting to argue.
