Book Summary:

After leaving Society to desperately seek The Rising, and each other, Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again. Cassia is assigned undercover in Central city, Ky outside the borders, an airship pilot with Indie. Xander is a medic, with a secret. All too soon, everything shifts again.

Finally!!  I finished this series and can cross it of my to read list.  Reached took me a while to get through.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked it, it was just a book I could put down and not have to rush back to.  The story line was kinda slow moving for me at times but I think the writing itself was beautiful.  The first book Matched was my favorite of the series but Reached was a good series wrap up.

The story didn’t play out quite how I thought it would.  This was one series where I actually would have been ok if the love triangle play out differently.  This was a series I was comfortable letting my tween daughter read as there was nothing I found objectionable.
