I had much higher hopes for The Elite considering how The Selection ended off. There was so much possibility for this sequel, however, I ended up being more disappointed with The Elite than I was with The Selection. America still seems to be struggling between Maxon and Aspen and she pretty much ended right where she started in the beginning of Elite. There seems to be no development in both relationships as she only focuses on one of them when she is currently with either of the guys. The whole story was very slow with the occasional action with the rebels. Other than that it is just America going back and forth with the guys getting no where with either of them. Even thought it seems as if she has chosen Maxon at the end, I am sure Aspen will bring up some feelings of the past to make her even more indecisive than before.
