I was curious to see where Keira Cass would go with this novella after reading The Selection Series – Aspen wasn’t my favorite character and was hoping to see if the author could redeem him in my eyes.

We do get some great insight into Aspen’s head… although it did not make me like him any more than I already had. I understood him better – his affections, but still there was something missing, especially when he flirted with the maids while he was supposedly so devoted to America.

I loved the behind the scenes information we garnered of life at the Palace and some of the gossip around the major events America and Maxon lived through in The Selection Series.

It’s very short so there isn’t much else to add. It added another layer to my experience with Cass’s novels, but something I’d only recommend to mega fans.

Overall reaction: Quaint
