Synopsis:

Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection...

There was another girl in Prince Maxon's life...

Don't miss this thrilling 64-page original novella set in the world of the New York Times bestselling novel The Selection. Also features a teaser to The Elite, Kiera Cass's hotly anticipated sequel to The Selection.




My Review:
I didn't know what to think when it came to this book. Since I read the first two books last year, I already knew most of what was going to happen. But this book is from Maxon's mind, not America's.

I was interested to see the other side, even for the few short pages that the novella had. I was already team Maxon, but if I wasn't before, this book would have surely turned me to that team. He is such a sincere guy. It is nice to read a character that is royalty be so down to Earth. As you read in his pages about his father, that is who you would expect him to be as well. To see him not be that way is very nice and refreshing.

The book starts out about a week before the selection starts and goes to the second day into the competition. It gives you enough to see the person Maxon really is and know that he isn't faking anything in the other books. The sweet guy you meet there is the real guy that Maxon is.

I could have kept reading from Maxon's side for the whole rest of the series, but sadly it had to end. I now can't wait to start my re-read on this trilogy and finally find out who wins in the end.

Couldn't Put It Down!!

  1. I really liked The Prince as well! Maybe it's because I'm bias but I loved The Prince a lot more than The Guard. ;)

    1. I hope to finish the Elite tomorrow then start the guard. I haven't read it yet, but I have a feeling I won't like it so much. Like you said, I'm biased too :)
