Let me make something perfectly clear. This book advertises something completely different than what it delivers. Rather than telling us the love story that developed between Aspen and America, this book is merely a retelling of some of the events that happened during The Elite, from Aspen's point of view. It does not even tell us about how Aspen and Lucy fell in love. I feel that was a very missed opportunity. This book feels like a money grab, asking the readers to pay more money for most of the same story through someone else's eyes. I thought I was going to get more back story but that didn't happen. Very disappointed. I already read and loved The Elite. Enticing me to pay a few more dollars for the same story through someone else's eyes felt cheap and disrespectful.
This is the first novella I've read in quite some time that was more than just an over-hyped short story. It was a good length, added to the books I've already read and worth what I paid to read it.
After reading The Elite, I was super excited to see that Kiera Cass was about to come out with this novella to give us Aspen's point of view. What a great way to tide us over while waiting for The One to come out!
The Guard was a really exciting and satisfying read if you have already read both The Selection and The Elite (Books 1 and 2). This novella won't make any sense if you haven't read those books first. Like her first novella, The Prince, which repeated scenes from The Selection in Prince Maxon's view point, The Guard repeats several scenes from The Elite in Aspen's view. I had been really curious about what Aspen thought about some of the climatic events of The Elite and Ms. Cass delivered! The novella reads just as well as her full length novels and gives you further insight into some of the events going on in the palace that America isn't privy to. The only downside is that it's just long enough to whet your appetite!
