The Guard really threw me for a loop. I was completely against Aspen's attentions towards America because he acted stupidly to let her go. Unfortunately, this story made me feel for him a little. Dang it, I didn't want to like the guy so much.
What I did like was that I now see that for he guy that America does not end up with, he has someone else. Aspen doesn't quite realize it, and Maxon is so stressed to make a bad choice for himself and his kingdom. As long as Maxon does not choose Celeste, I think he should be good. I don't know. Whatever, I'll be excited to read the conclusion.
