Goodreads Blurb:  Rules Are Different Outside The Society

Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky–taken by the Society to his sure death–only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life and the enthralling promise of a rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices every thing to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.
Narrated from both Cassia’s and Ky’s point of view, this hotly anticipated sequel to Matched will take them both to the edge of Society, where nothing is as expected and crosses and double crosses make their path more twisted than ever.

Quick Review:  Well maybe I should say thoughts.  I only gave this 3 stars because I did not like it as much as I loved Matched.  There wasn’t really a high point until the end.  There is a twist I didn’t see coming.  I think the basis of this book was to set up for Reached. (Which I can’t wait for.)  I wish we could have seen a little more of Indie also.  She is such a unique character, and I want to know more of her story. Maybe she’ll make an appearance in Reached.  Ky has many of his own secrets, but I realized just how selfish he has been with sharing them.  He only likes people to know what he thinks they should.  I think this trials in this book make Ky & Cassia’s relationship better.   I’m pretty sure there are many more secrets and agendas that have yet to surface, and I’ll be impatiently waiting for the conclusion to this journey.

  1. I know. I can’t wait for Reached. I’m not sure why I didn’t care for Crossed… Maybe because it was so anti-climatic??? I just hope Reached is everything I want it to be. lol
