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.
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!
