Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Pretty interesting, but queen Amberly's personality resembles America's too much and I hate Clarkson even more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Short and interesting. At only 72 pages long, this novella gave us an idea of Queen Amberly’s background and how she came to win the attention of Prince Clarkson and eventually the crown. I came to really like her character and her determination to rise above her caste. We also learn more about Clarkson’s parents the former King and Queen. Although this story takes place before the rest of the series, I think it would be best enjoyed by those who are already fans of The Selection. The reason for this is that due to its short page count, it doesn’t go into a lot of detail about the world or the caste systems. I think that this would be confusing to a reader who hasn’t at least read the first book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Queen An awesome read. Can't get enough of Kiera's work. Makes you want to fall in love with a prince and hope for the best in finding that one true love, or both at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Queen I really enjoy the selection series and the novella that are attached to them. They are interesting with realistically flawed characters. A enjoyable read all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was great It was so good , It was really interesting seeing amberly's point of view! Though I didn't like just how obedient she and how she wanted to cater to the prince's every whim :P that's the only bad thing I havr to say , still 5 stars .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 Stars I enjoyed this little story. I'm not generally a fan of the mid-series short story, but this one was good. It gives more perspective into Queen Amberly's character and it's nice to see some of her back story as well as her experience in the Selection. I couldn't make myself become even remotely fond of Clarkson, even though Amberly was completely in love with him throughout this story. I had in my mind his depiction from this series' novels. But it wasn't only that. Clarkson seemed controlling to me. I mean, the way he decided to choose Amberly - his reasons annoyed and offended me. Sure, I'll marry you, because you do anything I ask you to and you put me first no matter what. Well, that's not romantic at all, nor is it right to expect that of a spouse. Anyway, overall the story was good. I cannot freaking wait for The Heir!! Side note: This author sure seems to like the odd-awkward-embarrassing girl meets boy story. I predict another awkward meeting in the fourth book! But then I will know which boy Eadlyn chooses. Oh no, I hope I didn't just ruin it by figuring out Cass's secret!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Queen Such a quick good read! I came back to read this after I had finished the whole series. It was really interesting to read another side of the story, especially reading about a character that I adored!
