The Prince Made Me Love Maxon More

15820748Title: The Prince
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: The Selection #0.5
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: March 5, 2013
Edition: audiobook

Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection...
Before Aspen broke America's heart...
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.

After finishing The Elite, I immediately went to my library and put The One on hold. There were two people in front of me and I knew that I needed more of this wonderful world to hold me over until I could delve back into it with another book from the series, so I decided to check out this novella.

The Prince follows Maxon before the Selection occurs. We find out that he actually had a really close friend from France named Daphne who really liked Maxon as more than a friend. Needless to say, the two of them do not end up together because of the Selection.

I really loved this story because I liked learning more about Maxon. We never get to see anything through his point of view, so it was awesome to finally see the world through his eyes. I'd definitely suggest this one for fan of The Selection series who are looking to explore the characters and the world a bit more.

  3. I loved this as well! My favorite part is just like you said: seeing The Selection from Maxon's perspective. We never get to hear from his perspective and it's so cool and adorable to see things from through his eyes. This series is a definite guilty pleasure for me :)

  4. I'm such a huge Maxon fan, simply because I think he stands out from the usual YA heroes - and this one was sure a great addition to the series. The Guard... not so much, though haha. Really hope you'll enjoy The One!

  5. Novellas can be tricky to pull off, but it sounds like this one was an excellent way to flesh out the series. I absolutely love prequel stories! :D
