I read The Prince a while ago and gave it 3/5 stars, but I've finally read The Guard and did not love (1.5/5 stars).

At least it has given me a bit of a refresher for the series, so I can continue on with The One and remember a little of what had happened before (I've totally forgotten most of it).
Both of these novellas were fast passed and really easy to read. They were not the best but still, I'm very happy I took the time to read them. I recommend reading this especially fans of The Selection series because it does give some good insights :)

The Prince: ★★★✰✰

“There was something about her.. Even the way she didn't like me drew me in, and I couldn't help but smile.”

This one was just alright. I didn't love it but I can't say I hated it either. It's written in Prince Maxon's POV which was

The Prince
-cute & adorable
-loved the two extra chapters of his POV

The Guard
-Aspen stinks
-So boring
-Failed attempt at making people Team Aspen
-Successful attempt at making more money by enticing people to buy this book

First Three Chapters of The One

Okay, like, if you don't like Aspen Leger after reading the guard, don't talk to me.

MAXON TE AMO ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

El príncipe y el guardián es una novelilla secuela de los tres primeros libros de la saga La Selección. Es una novela muy fina que cuenta con dos relatos que se desarrollan en diferentes momentos de la trilogía y con diferentes protagonistas.
Hablando en general de esta secuela, puedo decir que me ha gustado mucho. Son dos relatos cortos, que se leen fácilmente y que encajan bien el uno con el otro. Aunque cada uno se desarrolla en un momento distinto de la trilogía (El

Yay!! I've finished the book! Reading this made me realize:
1. The king is even more of an asshole and I hate him more.
2. Maxon is even hotter.
3. That Selection list was a nice touch!
Oh my gods. I FINALLY have the Selection Stories After waiting SIX FREAKING MONTHS on hold for it at my state library.
WAIT. The Prince and The Guard short stories for the Selection Trilogy AND A SNEAK PEAK OF THE ONE??!!!! HOW COULD THIS GET ANY BETTER?!!!!
YAY A COVER!!!!!!!

Pensaba que me iba a encontrar algo quizá irrelevante, pero me he encontrado unas historias que son lo suficientemente entretenidas como para leerlas prácticamente sin pausa. El estilo de Cass está muy bien por eso, porque consigue engancharte porque es muy rápida y su manera de narrar tiene mucha acción. Si no lees estos relatos, no te pierdes nada importante de ninguna de las dos primeras novelas, pero sí que sirve para introducirnos más en los personajes de Maxon (♥) y Aspen (♥).

I hated The Prince. I’m of the unpopular opinion that Maxon sucks.
I enjoyed The Guard which only made me love Aspen more.
I will forever ship Aspen and America. 💜🤭🤫

I love Maxon's short story and his point of view. I think, no I know, that it just made me love him even more. I love the extended scene for his part. Absolutely fawning over it. As for Aspen's short story, I really tried. I did. I do not like him, not in Selection, not in Elite and I can care less for his point of view. It actually aggravated me even more. He was too ignorant for me. I couldn't stand it. I found myself skimming through his parts. I did however like that he took his time to hang ...more

Immediately read the sneak peek at The One, followed by the extra info, followed by the extended version of The Prince and The Guard. This was well-worth the $10, guys. I'm gobbling this up like candy.

So, my obsession with The Selection continues. It took me so long to find this book for sale in brazil, but FOUND IT!
Okay, to start with, i have to say im a little sad. I honestly don't like Aspen, but he takes like 70% of the book hahah. Still, it was good to see everything from his perspective.

The Prince:
I love how since the beginning he kind of knew America was the one. I don't know, but just seeing how he felt towards King Clarkson, and the Selection, gave him a more "I'm not just a prince,

Ambas historias me han gustado y aunque no aportan mucho a la historia como tal, te ayuda a conocer lo que pasa por las cabezas de Maxon y Aspen.

Me ha gustado el punto de vista de Maxon y sobretodo cuando ve a America por primera vez, sabes que es lo que se le pasa por la cabeza en ese momento y es tan mono... Y en esta historia también se ve como Maxon es una marioneta del rey y como el rey maneja todo a su antojo (me cae muy mal ese señor).

El Príncipe se lleva acabo unos días antes de la Selección, donde Maxon se prepara o intenta hacerlo de todos modos.
Él lucha mucho con sus nervios, y se pregunta si habrá alguien que le guste. También conocemos a una amiga suya, Daphne. Esa es la chica de la que se habla en la descripción. Personalmente no creo que Maxon tenga ningún sentimiento por ella, aunque ella misma es muy clara en eso. Y he decidido que no me gusta ella. Deseo que Maxon y America estén juntos. Daphne se va de

Disfruté completamente la parte de Maxon, ustedes saben que me encanta, y poder estar en sus pensamientos fue algo muy bello de leer.
La parte de Aspen no me gustó mucho, pues Aspen no me cuadra, pero si quitamos a Aspen de encima y solo nos queda Maxon... Entonces si, 5 estrellas.
Lo siento, soy así de subjetiva, te amo Maxon, byeeee.

Can't wait until the release of The One so I'll take every bit of extra I can. I think The Guard was supposed to make you like Aspen more...and I don't hate him I just decided who I wanted America to be with a long time ago. Worth the read!!!
I love love loved having both The Prince and The Guard in paperback format. Generally I don't read the novellas for books simply because I avoid reading on an e-reader or on my computer. I'm really liking the trend of novellas being bundled and printed!

Anywho, The Prince was absolutely fantastic. I was really craving a look into Maxon's mind and it delivered. Problem is, now I want to read the whole thing in his mind frame too! I am a Maxon fangirl so you know I just devoured The Prince. The rea

The Prince - This was SO lovely! I loved Maxon when reading 'The Selection', so reading from his perspective was really cute (just like him, aha!) Seriously, he's a precious little prince that America better be appreciating.

The Guard - Aspen was like my least favourite character, so I didn't quite know how I'd feel about it (and him) but this proved he had some redeemable qualities and I liked how it set up a closer relationship between him and the maids. It really added sense to 'The One'.

Ik vond het leuk om de Selectie eens vanuit een ander perspectief te 'beleven'. Ik vond het verhaal van de prins erg leuk om te lezen, het geeft wat meer achtergrond. Ik vond het verhaal van de lijfwacht daarentegen vrij saai en niet heel interessant.

To be perfectly honest, I really don't think this book added anything to the Selection Series.
It mostly rehashed scenes we've already experienced (but from the male's point of view, whoop-de-do) so it felt a little tedious, basically reliving conversations we've already seen. I was really hoping for backstory on these guys, or things going on with them that we couldn't see from America's point of view. Not the case.

Maxon's just made him look naive and a little pathetic - it was cheesy, poorly w

I'm so happy that I read these 2 novellas because I've missed the world of The Selection. It may not be the best but Kiera knows how to write amazing male characters. If I'm honest though The Prince was by far the better novellas and should have been longer. The Guard was okay, but I've never been the biggest Aspen fan. Had his novellas focused on him and Lucy then I probably would've given it a higher rating.

The Prince - 4.5 Stars

The Guard - 3.5 Stars

The short stories were good, but, the rest of it was just filler. Unless you're a diehard fan of the series, you can safely skip this one.

“There were so many beautiful women here. I got the sense that a few of these girls had been on dates before and, perhaps foolishly, I was intimidated.
And then there was America, her mouth stuffed with a strawberry tart, her eyes rolling like she was in heaven. I stifled laugh, and suddenly I had a plan.”
“I smiled to myself, thinking of America, measuring her against the other girls. She was pretty, if a bit rough on the edges. It was an uncommon type of beauty, and I could tell she wasn't aware of it.” 17 likes
