Title: The Selection Stories: The Prince & The Guard
Author: Kiera Cass
Series: The Selection 0.5 & 2.5
Genre: Teen Fantasy
Release Date: February 4, 2014
The Overview: 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.
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 final novel in the Selection trilogy.

Of all the book releases coming out in 2014 I have to say that I am most excited about The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass. As it doesn’t come out until May 6, I have strategically avoided reading these short stories until their physical release in February. I’m hoping they help make the wait a little more endurable. If you haven’t read this series yet, it is a romantic dystopian (much like Matched and Delirium) revolving around America, a reluctant candidate in a competition to marry a prince. I loved both The Selection and The Elite and look forward to learning a little back-history on some key characters before picking up the final novel.
