I love this author! And I’ve previously reviewed one of her books fairly recently. This novella was actually published after the original book but it is actually a prequel. And it’s become one of my favorite series.
Before America Singer’s story began, another girl came to the palace to compete for the hand of a different prince….
Don’t miss this digital original novella set in the captivating world of Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series. This prequel story takes place before the events of The Selection and is told from the point of view of Prince Maxon’s mother, Amberly. Discover a whole new Selection with this inside look at how Maxon’s parents met—and how an ordinary girl named Amberly became a beloved queen.
It’s actually quite interesting to see how different Amberly was from America Singer. Not only that but it also gives a little background knowledge on Amberly and Clarkson. It’s kind of interesting to see how their story was a huge contrast to their son’s.
Amberly is one of those characters that you just can’t help but to love. She’s so strong for a character that is seemingly sickly.
While she is a genuine character, I’m not sure if any fan should aspire to what she felt for Clarkson. It felt like it was almost an obsession she had.
And Clarkson is the same as he’s always been. And if you want to confirm this, you should read this series. And while it’s a good idea to read this before reading The Selection. But it could honestly be read anywhere during the series.
