There is a rising trend of novellas in the YA genre and I have to say I love it! I think it is so wonderful that authors have the ability to give us a nugget story to tie us over between books while sometimes gaining a different view on certain scenes.

The Prince novella is about Maxon and takes place before and during the beginning of The Selection. I really enjoyed Maxonโ€™s POV but I have to say this fell short for me compared to the full length novels. In the beginning we see Maxonโ€™s interactions with a foreign royal his age who happens to be a girl. Living in the palace prevents Maxon from not only having friends his age but also interacting with girls. It was great to see some of The Selection from Maxonโ€™s POV but this did not supply a large amount of important information where I felt it was necessary to read.

I would recommend picking this up if you loved The Selection and/or like Maxon otherwise this is not required to read before picking up The Elite.
