Blurb from Goodreads:
Two novellas set in the world of Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Timesbestselling Selection series are now available in print for the first time. The Prince and The Guard both offer captivating views into the hearts and minds of the two men fighting to win America Singer’s love. This collection also features exclusive bonus content, including a sneak peek at The One, the eagerly anticipated third novel in the Selection series.
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.
THE PRINCE: ★★★★★
“It was dark, so I couldn’t make out much of her face, but she had brilliant red hair, like honey and roses and the sun altogether.”
I loved reading in Maxon’s POV. I wished there was more! I loved everything about it. The two extra chapters were amazing!
I would love to read the whole Selection series in his POV. In a way, it made me love him even more than before ♥
THE GUARD: ★★★
“The sky is blue, the sun is bright and Aspen endlessly loves America.”
I’m sorry, but oh god, this was boring! Aspen is a very nice guy and I liked some parts about The Guard. But it didn’t excite me like the other books or The Prince. I still like Aspen, but I wouldn’t be interested in reading more in his POV.
The bonus content in this books was also very nice ! I especially liked the interview.
And the family trees are awesome! Aspen’s family started as a Three! I would have never guessed that. That was pretty awesome to find out 😉
