Summary

The Selection gets fierce as rivals stake their claim on the prince. Six girls, one life-changing prize…

America Singer will leave her pre-destined life for a world of glamour and luxury, if she wins… But surviving The Selection is tough. Rivals are battling to become Prince Maxon's bride as the threat of rebel violence just beyond the palace walls escalates into war.

Only six girls are left and sworn friendships are tested to breaking point. America's feelings for Maxon grow stronger, but she suspects darker mysteries in his royal past. With ex-lover Aspen waiting for her in the shadows, where do her loyalties truly lie?

a bit frustrating

I did start to feel down when the main character just couldn't make her up. she was so flighty and kept acting out...

I love this!

Wow! This story is very relaxing to listen to! It’s not hard to follow and it’s a very good sequel to the Selection, it makes you want to listen to the third one. Sometimes it sounded a little robotic and the tone of her voice stayed the same or very similar for different emotions. She did do the voices very well and they were all unique and i loved that about this book!

I loved the second book in the series and found it very difficult to put down. I loved reading as the story continued and the love triangle continued. I loved reading about when America was with Maxon and found myself wanting to see what would happen when they next meet and how they would get past the next obstacle. I did at times find America was a bit annoying as she seemed to keep dragging them both along a bit too much. However it was a great book cannot wait to continue in the series and find out what happens. Xxx

easy

This is an easy and entertaing listen. it does leave you at a bit of a cliff hanger so bare that in mind.
