Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.



Review Quotes



"A cross between The Hunger Games (minus the bloodsport) and The Bachelor (minus the bloodsport), this trilogy launch is a lot of fun. Cass deftly builds the chemistry between America and Maxon, while stroking the embers of America's first, forbidden love."--Publishers Weekly

"Cass's immensely readable debut novel is a less drastic Hunger Games, with elaborate fashion and trappings. The fast-paced action will have readers gasping for the upcoming sequel."--Booklist

"An engrossing tale reminiscent of Shannon Hale's Princess Academy and Ally Condie's Matched. Fairy-tale lovers will lose themselves in America's alternate reality and wish that the next glamorous sequel were waiting for them."--School Library Journal

"Reality T.V. meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Cass's delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!"--Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy

I don’t enjoy reading very much, but this book was actually really enjoyable. I sat down for hours ignoring the rest of the world while I read, and I was so excited to keep reading. They are coming out with a movie soon as well. I definitely recommend for everyone that loves a little romance novel!
