The Selection Stories: The Prince & The Guard by Kiera Cass


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.

If you would like to see the reviews of the 2 short stories in this book, please look at the previous book review posts.  For this review, I'm reviewing everything else in this book, which is also author's notes, playlists, and tons of other extras.  

I loved to finally get to see the family trees and to get the author's notes with them.  Getting an explanation on top of knowing why things happened as they did helped to add depth and get a better understanding of a lot of characters.  The fact that a lot of last names were changed during the installation of the caste system is so horrible.  

I loved reading the list of the caste system.  I have been trying to keep it all straight in my head, but it definitely helped to now have a list.  

I loved reading the Q & A with Kiera Cass.  She seems like such a friendly person.  I couldn't help but like her even more after reading the Q & A.

The only reason that this compilation doesn't get a 5 star rating is because there is No Map!  I need a map, please!  Since a lot of areas got renamed after Illea was created, it would be nice to know exactly what areas we are talking about.  

Overall, this is a great compilation of stuff.  For all fans of the Selection series, I hihgly recommend this book.  And for those who haven't gotten sucked into this beautiful world, y'all better get on it!

Happy Reading!
