The Prince

2013Kiera Cass

3.6/5

Buddy read with my, girl Desireé :) 3 Knowledge isn’t love ★'s \ “There was something about her.. Even the way she didn't like me drew me in, and I couldn't help but smile.”\ This novella is fast passed and really easy to read. But for me, it 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 initially what drew me to want to read it in the first place. It takes place a couple of weeks before The Selection which just so happens to be on his 19th birthday. I really enjoyed the first few chapters. The ones that took place before. It was nice seeing all the work that went into the preparations for the 'lottery' that really wasn't a lottery at all! And seeing it all through Maxson's eyes. It was wonderful to be inside his head, to see his fears and doubts throughout the whole prosses and what his expectations were going into it and whether or not if he'd find love in the end. I have loved Maxon from day one and this just helped solidify it even more. He's charming, sweet, passionate, a bit sheltered and he generally cares about The Selection and each one of the girls. I also enjoyed having his thoughts on the girls as well. Especially the one he has about America :) Maxon is so damn easy to love! The last couple of chapters were retellings of Maxon and America's first couple encounters in The Selection just through Maxon instead. And they were pretty boring because of it. Therefore that's why I'm giving it just 3 ★'s. Even though I didn't love it I do recommend this to The Seclection fans because it does give some good insights. \ “If she were (looking into my eyes), she’d have seen how absolutely floored I was the first time I finally, truly saw her. The clouds moved at just the right moment, fully lighting her face by the moon. She was dazzlingly beautiful. Underneath thick lashes were eyes blue as ice, something cool to balance out the flames in her hair. I felt a strange flutter in my chest, like the glow of a fireplace or the warmth of the afternoon. It stayed there for a moment, playing with my pulse.”\ Illustration of Maxon & What I picture he'd look like.
