Okay, so this is the second time I’ve read this book and I still love it!! My heart still raced, I sighed in anticipation and the end still got me railed up.
 
This is such a good book!
 
Okay, so the plot is this: Cassia Reyes has just turned 17 and in the Society that means she has to be Matched; a process where the Society calculates her perfect mate. In the beginning she is very excited, this is a new and important step in her future, and when it turns out that she’s Matched with her childhood friend, the smart and handsome Xander she couldn’t imagine a more perfect night. But later on when another face flashes across the Matching screen Cassia is forced to rethink her place in this “perfect” Society as she chooses the perfect Xander and the mysterious Ky.
 
Doesn’t that sound awesome?
 
As I started in my review of Crossed Condie is talented with words. The way she has Cassia describe things is interesting and vivid. And the way she has written this story makes it so hard to put the book down. You’re in suspense waiting for so many things to happen; you just have to know the answers! (Fun fact: When I first read this book I finished it in seven hours).
 
Since this whole book is told from Cassia’s perspective we don’t get that much deep detail about other characters; we see them how Cassia sees them. If she doesn’t like them then the reader doesn’t really like them either. Two examples I can think of right now are Xander and how you get a sense of how smart he is because Cassia (among other people) mention it multiple times. The other example is Ky (of course). The way Cassia talks about Ky’s balance, the way he moves and speaks; the reader falls in love with Ky because Cassia does.
 
This book is beautifully written and a real page turner that gets you excited for the second book (too bad the second book doesn’t live up to expectations.)
 
My Rating: 5/5
