Why I Started This Book:

I’ve read some many good things about this series that the week I bought it, I started to read. I like cientific fiction and other realits so dystopia books are really something to look at.


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.


My Thoughts:

I thing the story was ok. I didn’t hate it, cause the book keep me going, luckly the past was fast. Cassia was not a great caracter for me, I know the Society keep them pretty locked, but she could have chosen differently sometimes.

Ky is a important piece in this book, so I think the author could use him and his story a little better. His family almost didn’t apear, but there’s a story from the past that they’re connected with, it would be nice to know a little more.

Xander is the lovely guy. He follows the rules, know he’s place, and doesn’t do anything wrong. But when Cassia needs he’s help, he shows a different side. I didn’t expect that part actually. This was a nice part. I like to see him more on the next book, but not so sure this is gonna happen.

This book end in a cliffhanger so I’ll definelly read the next one.

You Might Enjoy This Book If:

You like a different society books, cause we all know dystopia is quite strange.

Favorite Quotes:

“Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.”

I know which life is my real one now, no matter what happens. It’s the one with you. For some reason, knowing that even one person knows my story makes things different. Maybe it’s like the poem says. Maybe this is my way of not going gentle.
I love you. (Ky Markham)”
