Review: The Elite By: Kiera Cass

The Elite (The Selection, #2)The Elite by Kiera Cass
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Selection has been continued in The Elite. The group of girls have been brought down to a handful, America Singer is still in the running - question is does she really want to be?
The past love of Aspen is now face to face, being that he is now a guard at the palace. Competition holds her fears as she has already developed feelings for Prince Maxon, and when those feelings are tested - well, sometimes we fail.
America seemed a lot more unsure of herself in this book, and Maxon - well, he didn't quite sparkle as much either. The weight of the rebellion is at the door of palace (and inside) and the truth of the how the country was created, along with the caste system, is revealed. Sometimes uncovering a truth like that can bring an enemy willing at all costs to protect it out - and it does.
I enjoyed this installment in the series, found myself staying up after 3am to read it. Fast paced, emotionally driven, a new dimension to the characters is created - including the secondary. Does it hold up to the first, no, but I can't wait for the next.
