Kiera Cass has written a thrilling, magical, suspenseful novel that will leave readers wondering what comes next. The One continues the story of the competition, and America discovers who her true love really is. At the same time, the rebels attack frequently, setting a charged atmosphere throughout the entire story. America fights her way to Maxon, and discovers that her rivals aren’t to be underestimated. She realizes that friendship is always the better choice, and it’s bittersweet when the official winner of the selection is announced.
The One is a fantastic book, full of varying emotions such as concern, fright, intimacy, and shock. This book speaks volumes about finding appreciation in the little things, and to be yourself. Unfortunately, it was not as intriguing as the previous two books in the series, The Selection and The Elite, because the author seemed to lose a sense of drama and eloquence. All in all, I would rate it four out of five stars - a must read if you’re caught up in this marvelous series!
