And when Cassia discovers Ky has escaped to he wild frontiers beyond the Society there is hope.
But on the edge of society nothing is as it seems . . .
A REBELLION IS RISING.
And a tangled web of lies and double-crosses could destroy everything.
I absolutly love the book crossed, from start to finish, knew as soon as i read matched the next book had to come next.
As i read page by page lifting my head from the book was not an option, to me it was like watching a movie seeing and feeling everything Cassia did becuase of the great explaination that the author Ally Condle put across word by word making even more eye catching.
I can say this now i am looking forward to the next book being on my reading list!!!!!!
I loved Matched. When this book came out, I was anxiously waiting for it to come and fall into my hands. The waiting was cutting deep, but that's what happens when you basically live in the middle of the ocean :/ (Australia) We get most things last, yet expect them so soon because of everything we hear. I couldn't wait to get back into this story, I loved the concept of it, and the idea of it.
We are touch by Cassia's struggle and determination to find Ky, as well as her loyalty to Xander and her friends. We get anxious about what Xander's secret is and it shows us a different side of Ky as well as brings out a side of Cassia that we don't see very often. A side where she is still innocent in the eyes of the Society and what they tell them and what they do. She doesn't yet realize the full extent of what they do as well as their control over everyone, as well as her ever-flowing curiosity over everything seems to spill out whenever she discovers something new and wild.** In the final chapters we do see a side of Cassia that is learning and is growing up.
This book makes you want to power through, turn every page, read every word and feel what they feel. We go on the journey with Cassia and Ky to find each other as well as to find ourselves, and everything we would do for someone we love.
**the Rising is one idea that she believes because it is something that is completely out of her comfort zone. We see from her belief of the blue tablets that she still is in some belief over the Society and the Rising seems like something that will help her grow as a person from her innocence over life. She likes the idea of the Rising, not the action that comes with it and the beliefs
