Summary Of Book


The setting in this book is mostly the palace. This is where all the royal family, all the servants/maid, the guards, and the other staff members live/work. This is where the girls who were entered in the Selection lived for the time that they were there. The palace is also the place where royal parties are held. Some other settings are:

  • America's house
  • The grounds
  • The library


There are so many characters in this book (over 35). But i'm only going to pick six. The six characters are; Prince Maxon, America Singer, Queen Amberly, King Clarkson, Celeste Newsome, and Marlee Tames. Price Maxon is the Prince of Illea. Who is falling in love with America Singer. Queen Amberly is married to King Clarkson who doesn't like America, Celeste Newsome is the mean girl. And Marlee Tames is the favorite but then destroys that tittle.


This book is a huge roller coaster. With all the ups and downs of a thrill. The plot might be confusing at some points if your not paying attention. America enters in the selection. then gets in to the selection. She stays at the selection for a very long time yet she doesn't want to be here.

My Opinion

I love this this book!!!!!!!!! I think this is the most awesome series of book I have ever read and I've read a lot of series.

My Recomendation

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read a lot of Dystopian. This is a 9 book series (not including extra)so if you don't like to read this is not for you. This is also a romance novel mixed with adventure:

"A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport) " according to the blurb.
