Book Review


Publisher: HarperTeen

Date Published: March 5th, 2013

Author: Kiera Cass

Genre: Young Adult

Format: Ebook


This book is in Maxon's perspective, and it takes place before "the Selection." But it also takes place during 'The Selection', where America first met him, including what Maxon thought about America! Maxon's thoughts about the other girls are in this book, too.


The main characters in this book are Maxon, America, and Daphne. Daphne is an old friend of Maxon's. She lives in France, so they don't really see each other, only on big events. They've been friends ever since they were kids. And of course, there's America from the first book. She's the same way, and Maxon seems to like her because she is different, He seems intrigued by her, so he lets her stay. Maxon is the main character in this book, and it's in his point-of-view.


This novella is really good, and it's short! It's an e-novella that is 64 pages long. And It is nice seeing Maxon in his own state of mind, reading about his perspective during the selection process, because he may confident and polished on the outside but in reality he is genuine and caring. He is a normal guy and he just wants to find the love of his life, or at least someone that he can tolerate being with for the rest of this life.

And one part that grabbed my attention was how Maxon didn't want to have to choose his wife by The Selection, but he had to because it was a family tradition, and there's no way his father would let him not do it.

And the only bad thing about The Prince was that it was too short. It should have been longer, or at least 100 pages.

      The Prince is awesome. I really liked the first book, The Selection so that's why I loved this book. :) I really liked The Elite, so I can't wait until The One comes out next year :)

      The Prince is definitely on my list of books to read. It looks like most of the new books I'm waiting for won't be out until fall, so I will probably read it sometime this summer.

      Cool! I really liked this, even though it was only 64 pages. I've never read The Siren, though. I have to check it out. :)

      I did read the first two thanks to your review and this one is next on my list. I love her writing style! Even read The Siren. :)
