Read in a certain order. But great companion book to the series.
Verified purchase
The book is great but you have to read it in a particular order with the other books in the series. Please look below for that because two of the stories should be read before the first book. The second could be read before or after depending upon the reader.

The Queen (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
The Prince (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
The Selection
The Elite
The Guard (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
The Favorite (Happily Ever After Companion Book) Pt 1 This takes place before The One
The One
The Favorite (Happily Ever After Companion Book) Pt 2 This takes place during the book The One so better to read after this book is done.
Scenes From Celeste (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
The Maid (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
After the One (the Epilogue) (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
Where are they Now? (Happily Ever After Companion Book)
The Heir
The Crown

This book might repeat certain scenes but its great to see it from someone else's POV.

Happily ever after with magnificent drawings!
Verified purchase
For years now, I have read this series so many times, SO MANY TIMES in both Greek and English. There are not enough words to describe my long lasting love for the Selection series. It will always remain my most favorite YA series ever. So romantic, so heart warming and heart wrenching at the same time. The covers are always wonderfully colorful and eye-catching! This one in particular has gorgeous drawings and a beautifully designed map of the Selection world.

It was a welcome change to read the point of view of many different characters and the way they interpreted the same events America had narrated in the main Selection books. We even saw a glimpse of some other couples: Clarkson and Amberly, Aspen and Lucy, Carter and Marlee.

Very fluffy, very easy to read and finish. No strong violence (except during Marlee's canning), no swearing, no sex scenes. Suitable even to 12 years old readers.

More Is Always A Bonus!
Verified purchase
Happily Ever After: Companion to the Selection Series (HarperTeen, 2015) is a compilation of previously published novellas and new bonus material, all pertaining to The Selection series by Kiera Cass.

*See my full reviews of The Queen, The Prince, The Guard, and The Favorite on the Royally Reviewed blog*

The bonus material was a nice touch. I loved the scenes from Celeste’s point of view; those were definitely the highlight. I feel like I could read the whole series from her perspective, as she was certainly one of the most surprising and lovable characters with her arc in the final book. We also get some scenes from Lucy’s point of view, although I still would’ve hoped for more for her and Aspen. They both deserved so much more passion than what we ever get to see. This compilation also includes a bonus epilogue to The One, a “Where Are They Now” of the surviving Elite, as well as original sketches of the main characters, and a very neat map of Illéa which would’ve been helpful if inserted in the previous books.

If you haven’t read any of the novellas yet, this book is well worth the money. You get four full novellas, plus the artwork and bonus content. The bonus content is probably not worth a full-price purchase on its own, but like I said, if you’re new to the novellas and want to grab all four in one fell swoop, then this is definitely the way to do it. Overall, from cover to cover, a very enjoyable read!

This book goes into what Queen Amber's life was like before she met the King, what Prince Maxon's life was like before he met America. It has two sections that are only available in this addition: The Queen and The Favorite. It also contains The Prince and the Guard so you don't have to purchase them separately from this book.

This is a perfect companion book to go with The Selection. It fills in the blanks on what all is happening to the Prince and Aspen as America goes through the Selection. If also gives you a look at the Queen before she was Queen, and what America was like as the Prince's favorite during the Selection.

I highly recommend this book over the Prince and the Guard alone.

buy it!!!!
Verified purchase
This is a time that I really wish that I could give half star reviews. Personally I really feel like this book was saw great. Amazing but not quite fabulous.
Reasons why it was great;
I loved all the novellas. Personally I am just one of those fans who would be super happy if Keira kept the series going just for America. So because of this I really liked getting the extra scoop on all the other characters.
I also believe that the after scene (for America and Maxon) was worth the ten dollars in itself. It was one of my favorite parts along with Celeste scenes.

The only thing I had an issues with was the illustrations. They were great, but nothing special.

So I think that this is a great buy and you should definable get it if you love the selection as much as I do!

shallow people doing shallow stuff
Verified purchase
I could have sworn I've seen this before but nothing in the film jolts my memory at all. Perhaps because it is so not memorable? Charlotte Gainsbourg is always worth watching, but the character played by actor-director Yvan Attal, and his gang of friends and coworkers, would have been called "toxic" today. The film-making itself, the shot selection etc., isn't bad, but the ending though veers towards Claude Lelouch at his most loopy. Anouk Aimee's cameo appearance must have been there to remind us of Lelouch? Claude Berri and Aurore Clement also have cameos, which don't quite succeed in saving the film. _Love etc._, starring Gainsbourg and Attal, is a much better film; I look forward to watching that DVD which I just bought!

It explains soo much! Plus we finally get a map!
Verified purchase
It gets 5 stars because we finally finally have a freaking map! This was soo needed when reading the original books. I truly enjoyed getting these back stories especially The Queen and Marlee's. Marlee's was absolutely everything I was missing missing from the book once the bad times happen. The Queen's explains so much about how and why King Clarkson is so awful. Just a lovely wrap up of the series. I also enjoyed getting to see how the Elite ended up.

I absolutely LOVE these novellas
Verified purchase
I absolutely LOVE these novellas! It was great to read from the different character’s perspectives! I was worried about where Kiera would go with it all (not wanting to spoil my love for the series so far) but, all in all, I was utterly impressed. I especially enjoyed her prefaces to each novella that explained exactly the essence she intended to present with the beloved characters.
Here my individual novella reviews:
-The Prince-
I very much enjoyed reading from Prince Maxon’s point-of-view. Reading through some of the reviews, I realized that many were disappointed in the fact that it only shows a small portion of his perspective compared to the whole Selection series. I mean, c’mon, who wouldn’t want to spend more time in the mind of *sigh* Maxon Schreave?? However, you must note that this is, in fact, a novella not a novel. Overall, I am extremely happy with read and appreciated seeing exactly what Maxon faced during the whole Selection process.
-The Guard-
I was slightly disappointed with this book. I did, of course, love getting the opportunity to see things as Aspen did during the Selection. Nevertheless, I was frustrated by his view. Aspen was selfish and childish when it came to his and America’s relationship. Don’t get me wrong, I really like Aspen’s character as a whole, but after reading this I jumped completely onto the Team Maxon bandwagon.
-The Queen-
Reading about Queen Amberly and King Clarkson’s Selection process was nothing short of interesting. I liked the portrayal of Amberly pre-royalty. Nevertheless, I CANNOT say the same for Clarkson. The best term, however childish, I can find to describe him is a complete jerk. I was hoping there would SOME redemption for him considering how hated he is in the original series. But no. absolutely not. Yeah yeah, he grew up in an abusive home. Whatever. Look at Maxon! I realize that it’s not condoning abusive relationships per say, but really? How could Cass put someone as sweet as Amberly with someone as controlling and abusive as Clarkson!
-The Favorite-
YES YES YES. Marlee was already MY favorite; this book did nothing but help that! I love her and her adorable love story with Carter. They’re love story (despite the caning part, of course) is total -im sorry in advance- GOALS.
-Celeste’s POV-
I’m glad I got to read this. It was nice to see her side of things. She is still portrayed as the same manipulative person; however, she does receive a bit more redemption.

As for the other short stories, I am glad I got to read them. I hate when things are left unsaid… these certainly covered all the bases.
