Books 1-3 in the New York Times bestselling series by Kiera Cass. PLUS The Prince and The Guard - a captivating look into the lives of two of the men in America Singer’s life.
It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.
Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.
Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls play by the rules. But America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.
America Singer will live a life of glamour and luxury, if she wins… But rivals are battling to become Prince Maxon’s bride and the threat of rebel violence beyond the palace walls escalates into war.
Six girls are left and friendships are tested. America’s feelings for Maxon grow stronger, but she suspects darker mysteries in his past. With ex-lover Aspen waiting for her in the shadows, where do her loyalties truly lie?
For the four girls who remain at the palace, the friendships they’ve formed, rivalries they’ve struggled with and dangers they’ve faced have bound them to each other for the rest of their lives.
Only one winner will be chosen and as the competition approaches its end, the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realises just how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.
Before America arrived at the palace to compete in The Selection, there was another girl in Prince Maxon's life.
The Prince opens the week before the Selection begins and follows Maxon through the first day of the competition.
Raised as a Six, Aspen Leger never dreamed that he would find himself living in the palace as a member of the royal guard.
In The Guard, readers get an inside look at Aspen's life within the palace walls – and the truth about a guard's world that America will never know.

A delightful read
I thoroughly enjoyed this series. For an avid reader such as myself I found it an easy enjoyable read. Although I found the main character sometimes annoying it was great to see her development throughout the series. The little bonus novella's were also a fun addition. Although I'm now in my mid 20's my friends and I have all enjoyed reading it. In a similar genre to hunger games and divergent it offers something new and fresh too. I enjoyed that although predictable it had characters that behaved more like real people than fairy tale characters.
