I suspect the book is intended for teenage girls and up, but, in my opinion, anybody can enjoy it.

The Review

This novel is another entertaining book, very well written and with a captivating plot that will keep your attention until the last page.

The plot is a typical love triangle, with the young female divided between the attention of a prince, Maxon, and a castle guard, Aspen.

This book starts with an initial group of thirty-five contenders being trimmed down to six.

Kiera is so good in describing the environment and her characters, that you feel like lingering inside the story; following every step of our heroine and her two loves.

This book brings battles with rebels and more intrigue and discussions among the remaining ladies.

As with any saga, the main plot doesn't finish here. Readers will have to read all the books to finish it and see what will happen to America and how she will guide her heart.

Even though this book is classified as a novel for young adults, I am quite sure it will, as well,  please even those who are not as young.

My younger daughter bought the electronic version of this book from for her Kindle, and I caught myself expecting to continue savoring this delightful adventure-romance.
