The highly anticipated second book in the Matched trilogy!Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky--taken by Society to his certain 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 rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices everything to reunite with Ky, ingenious surproses from Xander may change the game. On the edge of Society, nothing is as expected, and crosses and double crosses make Cassia's path more twisted than ever.
Separated by the dictatorial Society that rules them, Cassia has been searching for Ky while suffering the harsh conditions of labor camps far from home. About to be sent to the Society's biggest city for her permanent work assignment, Cassia instead grabs an opportunity to reach the war-torn Outer Provinces, where she finally gets a lead in tracking Ky. Ky has survived being used as a pawn in the Society's war against a nameless and faceless enemy; he and two companions have escaped into a no man's land, and Cassia follows. As Cassia and Ky hike through dangerous territory in search of a rumored rebellion and the freedom to be together, the specter of Cassia's betrothed, Xander, hangs over them. Narrated from Cassia and Ky's viewpoints, Condie's sequel to her acclaimed Matched is very much a middle book, centering on a transformative journey and setting up the finale to come. Newcomers will need to read the first book for background, but vivid, poetic writing will pull fans through as Condie immerses readers in her characters' yearnings and hopes. Ages 14-up. (Nov.)

Posted November 27, 2011 by Maddi , San AngeloWhen I saw this one on the homepage of the eReader site, I initially opened up the page to view it. Now, I just love when a book does that to me. I know they say don't judge a book by it's cover, but the cover is about 15% of the initial value in a book. If you can not tell if the book is decent enough to read the description by the cover, then you don't read the book. End of.
However, that might just be me.
To say this book was boring was a bit of an overstatement. It was somewhat lagging in plot, but I think this series is going to be like most great mystery books of the time: slow, but full of hints that lead to a grande finale. This was not only well-written, but just overall amazing. I can not think of a better way to read off a rainy night than this series so far.
