Before America Singer met Prince Maxon . . .
Before she entered the Selection . . .
She was in love with a boy named Aspen Leger.
Don’t miss this digital original novella set in the captivating world of Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection trilogy. This brand new 64-page story begins just after the group of Selected girls is narrowed down to the Elite and is told from Aspen’s point of view. The Guard also features a teaser to The One, the thrilling conclusion to The Selection trilogy.
I picked this up as I was keen to see inside Aspen’s head, but I felt a little cheated, with both the content and the length (for the price).
It was interesting to read his perspective and to see the start of his blossoming relationship with she who shall remain unnamed, but it just didn’t add enough to the backstory, for me. And it left off mid-air with no warning! Not a bad read, but honestly it doesn’t add any substance or depth to the overall story.
