Again it's prequel time!
The Prince (The Selection # 0.5)
by Kiera Cass
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...
Sometimes I read prequels before starting a series to get a feel of how they are and sometimes I read them after the main books.
In this case, I did the latter and I'm glad because there is important information that it's not provided. So my suggestion is to read "The Selection" first. (and you will read my review soon)
"Between Daphne's words,, father's interloping and my own growing fears, I was dreading the Selection like never before"
Oh! I'm so in love with this series and this prequel is just perfect.
I enjoyed getting to know the other side of everything, like how his father pushes him and how difficult their relationship is and on the other hand, I liked his relationship with his mom. So tender.
I loved the fact that there was another girl in Maxon's life before The Selection. Eventhough Daphne's reaction is heartbreaking, is nice to see how that particular moment helps to give shape to Maxon's character. (part of his insecurities and doubts come from this)
I liked reading from Maxon's POV, especially their first encounter. It was very sweet.
I never get enough of these characters!
