My review:

This review might contain spoilers.

I'm so happy to finally read this book and the ending was very predictable as I've expected. The book ended with a great conclusion and I was satisfied with it. I may be annoyed with America Singer for being whiny and indecisive in some ways, but I was impressed with her on this book. Her compassion, selflessness, and courage to stand up against the king was outstanding. I can't help smiling and in my mind I was like "You GO GIRL!"

Maxon Schreave, oh my goodness. You my dear prince never failed to make me laugh and swoon. His moments with America made me giggle like crazy. I don't mind laughing alone. I don't even care. I am enjoying this damn moment to fangirl on this trilogy.

I am instantly hooked with this trilogy. The romance, rebellion, revelations, the clues-I-didn't-see-coming, the pretty covers....everything! I am going to miss this one. If you want to read a fast paced dystopian read, I highly recommend this one. :)

Favorite scene: The Convicting ( It was a total slap in the king's face)

Favorite quote:“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.” 


  1. Oh my gosh, this book was SO GOOD! I was always a bit annoyed with America too. She never completely won me over, but I did think the convicting scene was completely awesome as well. :D

  2. You changed designs! I love it :)

    This book was adorable ;) Great review.
