Genre: YA Dystopian/Science Fiction
Cover Review: I believe that this series has some of the best covers. On this cover, Cassia is finally breaking out.
Tag Line: N/A
Series: Matched #3
Main Characters: Cassia Reyes, Ky Markham, and Xander Carrow
After leaving Society to desperately seek The Rising, and each other, Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again. Cassia is assigned undercover in Central city, Ky outside the borders, an airship pilot with Indie. Xander is a medic, with a secret. All too soon, everything shifts again.
This book is told with mulitple point of views. We finally get to see the world through Xander's eyes! I always wondered what it would be like to see the world through his eyes. We also get a closer look at his feelings and everything with Cassia and Ky. Cassia has definitely changed and grown as a character since the first book. She is so much stronger now. She can stand up for herself and she doesn't care if she gets in trouble for it, because she knows that she will be okay in the end.
Ky is probably still my favorite character in the series. He is the best character because he has a history that is unknown and different from everyone else's. We also get a deeper look into that during this book. I definitely think that this was the best ending that Condie could have given us. Everything was wrapped up rather nicely. The Matched trilogy will always have a place in my heart as a favorite, and I'll definitely purchase any of Condie's books if she writes anything else.
