There’s something incredibly satisfying about coming to the end of a trilogy; sad, but deliciously satisfying. This is why I’m glad that Ally Condie doesn’t plan to take her fantastic YA series beyond the final book that will hit shelves next November. Readers will get definitive answers to the numerous problems that the books’ main character, Cassia, faces.
Cassia is in the rare class of heroines that follow in the fearless footsteps of Katnis Everdeen (Hunger Games series, holla!), like Divergent’s Beatrice Prior and Across the Universe’s Amy. Similarly, Cassia is someone who you do not want working against you — as the government of her dystopian society soon discovers ...
Cassia’s tale started in December 2010 with Matched. In her society, the government decides everything about citizens’ lives, including marriages. But when two faces flash on Cassia’s matching screen — her best friend, Xander, and the class loner, Ky — what unfolds is an adventure the likes of which readers will not soon forget. In the series second, 2011’s November novel Crossed, Cassia and Ky have both been exiled to the outer provinces, but they can’t fight the tide of revolution that is sweeping them (and their repressive society) toward an unexpected discovery. Add this to some surprising revelations about Xander, and Cassia is really in a confusing place. Which is why readers, myself included, cannot wait for the trilogy’s final tale, the upcoming novel Reached.
