And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

 


 4.5/5

I recieved this from Goodreads through a giveaway! I was beyond excited when I received the email I got it.  I loved this book even more then the first! We are down to the top 6 girls, though I don't see why. America is the obvious choice. HELLO!

The love triangle is still going but I feel like Aspen is starting to become like Gale. Someone that just is messing with our main characters head. 

I enjoyed seeing America grow more in this book and seeing her starting to listen to her heart and what she wants. I hate how she has so many insecurities, but the is what makes her more human and believable. She starts seeing the girls around her as they truly are and realizes that she will lose what she holds dear to one of them if she doesn't stop running away. 

The rebels add even more drama and tension to the plot. They are continuing their search and more people are getting hurt by them. The King and Maxon are trying to figure out what to do and how to keep the people safe. 

 Oh Maxon in this book, shows how wonderful of a person he is, and whether America wants to see it or not, it's her influence that is helping him become a better man then his father and he will be a better ruler in the end for it. 

I almost died when I the the words "This is the end of the second book."
I was devastated that it came to an end far before I was ready. I wanted things to work out already! And now I have to wait A YEAR to read the next one.  I think I am going to cry in a corner.
