Book Review: Reached

Reached is the third installment of the Matched series by Ally Condie.  And let me tell you something.... I loved it!

There are not too many series that are out there that you kind of like the first book but absolutely love the third.  Usually it's the other way around.

We follow the lives of Cassia, Xander and Ky.  They have now joined the Rising and are in their assigned places waiting to take down Society.  Cassia is sorting in Central, Xander is a medic in Camas and Ky is training as a pilot.  Each has their part to play and each is is waiting for instructions on what to do next.

The Rising seems to have finally gotten it's chance to show their strength when the Plague attacks.  No one in Society is safe.  But the Rising has the cure and is willing to share.  They began administering the cure but soon find that there is a mutation of the Plague that they do not have a cure for.  The Rising is about to fall.

Xander, Cassia and Ky each have their roll to play.

This story flowed well.  I enjoyed every single page.  I read all day long and it was so worth it.  I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good solid story.
