It's down to the final four. America knows that Maxon loves her and that he wants her to be his queen... or does he? Every time she thinks they are truly meant to be together, something happens to tear them apart.
The rebels are getting more rebellious. The king is pushing to get her out of the competition as soon as possible. And the other girls are spending more and more time with Maxon.
With everything going on, can America turn the tide of the polling that shows her in last place, prove to the king that she'd be good for the country, and finally get the proof she needs that she and Maxon are meant to be?
Final thoughts: The first was good. The second was decent. This third book just got to be annoying. The only thing stopping America from being happy is her own stubbornness regarding admitting her love to Maxon. They are both idiots in this book by both insisting the other one declare love first. While the conclusion is foregone, it's also a bit too easy. The last couple of chapters fly by and are filled with all the right deaths to make America's ascension quick and pretty painless.
