Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—The series comes to a conclusion with this installment. The first three volumes, The Selection, The Elite, and The One, followed America Singer as she was chosen to be one of 35 girls to participate in the Selection—a competition to win the heart of Prince Maxon—and made her way to the top six and eventually was named the winner. The fourth book, The Heir, introduced their grown daughter, Eadlyn, who has lived for years hearing stories about her parents' fairy-tale romance but has no intention of repeating their history. However, she is eventually forced to take part in her very own Selection, choosing between 35 eligible young men to be her prince. The last book will reward die-hard fans with Eadlyn's final choice—whether they agree with it or not. Purchase where the series has been popular among teens.


PRAISE FOR THE SELECTION SERIES: “A real page-turner. Romance, royalty, and revolution in a reality-show format serve Cass’ boldly rendered heroine well in her quest for justice and love.” (ALA Booklist)

“Reality T.V. meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Cass’s delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!” (Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of the Paranormalcy trilogy)

“An engrossing tale reminiscent of Shannon Hale’s Princess Academy and Ally Condie’s Matched. Fairy-tale lovers will lose themselves in America’s alternate reality and wish that the next glamorous sequel were waiting for them.” (School Library Journal)

“Deliciously entertaining.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Cass’s immensely readable debut novel is a less drastic Hunger Games, with elaborate fashion and trappings. The fast-paced action will have readers gasping for the upcoming sequel.” (ALA Booklist)

“A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport), this trilogy launch is a lot of fun. Cass deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stroking the embers of America’s first, forbidden love.” (Publishers Weekly)
