“Readers will not be disappointed by this follow-up to the #1 Indie Next pick Matched, as Cassia follows her forbidden love Ky to the outer edges of the Society, hoping to prevent what seems to be his inevitable death. In alternating chapters from each character's point of view, we are drawn deeper into the mystery of the Society, about which Ky knows much more than he's ever let on. Being banished to the outer provinces is actually a return home for Ky, and his previous experiences may be the best chance he and Cassia have to survive the rough terrain. For that to happen, though, Cassia has to find him, and if she finds him, will her sacrifices be enough to keep them together?”
