Ugh so you know that feeling you get when a character you hate but then end up loving (or just plain liking) dies????? So that happens in this book...not gonna say who or when (in case you haven't read it yet. But other then that, I LOVE this book (and the entire series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I am completely obsessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I encourage everyone to read it!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's really well written and it really kept me on the edge of my seat. I can honestly say there were times when I thought America would clearly not make it and other times when it seemed like she'd be THE ONE without a doubt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This novel made me feel that I can do anything that I put my mind to even if others say I am not qualified or worthy in their eyes.

Perfect ending to such a rocky start for the main character. The author really took the time to flesh out the main character but also the other characters in the book did not feel 2-D. Each one had a story and they all tied together. Beautiful thought about how relationships are not perfect. This story shows more realistic expectations normal people have in others. The side story of the country being in turmoil and not being perfect made for a suspenseful read.

"But with his eyes right there, staring so deeply into mine, it was easy to dismiss that. I could forget about everything surrounding us when he looked at me like that. And so I did. I fell into Maxon's arms, holding him tightly. There was no place in the world I wanted to be more."

"Hell, my dear," he whispers.
"Don't start," I warn in return, and we're both left smiling. He holds my hands as if they're the only things pinning him to earth and i focus on that as i prepare myself for the words coming, the promises I'll never break. It's magical really, the power this day has.

But even now I know this isn't a fairy tale. I know that we'll have hard times. I know that things won't happen the way we want them to and that we'll have to work hard to remember that we chose this. It won't be perfect, not all the time. This isn't a happily ever after. It's so much more than that. -America S.
