Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.
I ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY love this story! Ally creates a very imaginative yet believable dystopian world. To be honest, it wasn't a "hooked by the end of the first page" kinda book, but by the end of the first chapter she had me captivated! I fell in love with all the characters immediately & really did struggle w/ Cassia's decision probably a bit more than she did! I was torn.....my heart was torn....♥
Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky--taken by the Society to his sure 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 a rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices every thing to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.
Well, once I was hooked reading Matched this was a super easy read. (Yes, just took me one day, no I do NOT have a life!) I was glued to the book from the first thrilling word! The non-stop action/adventure were super fast paced & I think I held my breath for most of this book. The worst part of the entire book was that it ended & the way it ended.......(but that will be remedies soon....see below)
