Cassia’s journey began with an error, a momentary glitch in the otherwise perfect façade of the Society. After crossing canyons to break free, she waits, silk and paper smuggled against her skin, ready for the final chapter.

The wait is over.

One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most—family, love, choice. Her quiet revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion.

With exquisite prose, the emotionally gripping conclusion to the international–bestselling Matched trilogy returns Cassia, Ky, and Xander to the Society to save the one thing they have been denied for so long, the power to choose.

    What if there was a path where you could love who you wanted to and make your own decisions away from Society? That's what Cassia has chosen. She and her friends has joined the Rising, a rebellion group. Now Cassia is working for the Rising from Society. But there's a bad plague going around. There was a cure- but the cure for the plague backfired into something worse. And when some special people get the plague- this is a life or death matter. In the conclusion of the Matched series, Ally Condie does it one last time by twisting love, friendship, and adventure into a fantastic book. Happy reading!

      The bomb drops in the electrifying last book of the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie. Narrated by Cassia, Ky, and Xander, who are all now working with the rebellion nicknamed the Rising, the Society's position is more dangerous than ever. A Plague is spreading throughout the Society's cities, and the Rising has the cure. All seems well for the Rising: the cure is the perfect way to win citizens over. But what no one foresees is the Plague's mutation. Suddenly, a concrete cure is nonexistent, and the entire world is thrown into chaos. The Plague spreads like wildfire. The Rising and the Society race to find a cure. People of the Outer Provinces spill back into society. Meanwhile, the main protagonists of the novel are more separated than ever. Ky has fallen deathly ill from the mutated Plague. Battling heartbreak and duty, Xander helps to find a cure for the boyfriend of the girl he loves. And Cassia is a mess. Trying to balance her morals, Ky's life, and hopelessness in the palm of her hand, Cassia must realize that once again, there is more than meets the eye. In the riveting finale to Ally Condie's trilogy, readers will be again amazed at the beauty and shattered glass of this Society-distorted dystopian world.

        I read the first two books in the series about 2 months ago, when libraries weren’t open. I had accessed them online, but this one wasn’t there! I waited for 2 months to read this book, and I was wondering if it was even worth it. Boy was I shocked! This book is probably my favorite in the Matched series. It is told from the perspectives of Cassia, Ky, and Xander. They are all working for the Rising now, undercover in the Provinces. Then it is the Rising’s time to strike. A Plague has spread throughout the Society, and the Rising has the cure. But not for long. Everything is going well and people are recovering until there is a mutation. No one can find the cure. Cassia, Ky, and Xander search for the cure in the village of Endstone when Ky falls ill with the deadly mutation. Will Cassia and Xander be able to save him? Find out in this thrilling conclusion to the Matched trilogy!

            I have already read the first two books in the series "Matched" and "Crossed". Now I am about three fourths of the way through the last book. Ally Condie is a really great author and has amazing character developement. As I read this book, I find that I start to really feel what the characters are feeling. However, because of that, I would probably not recomend this book to someone with anxiety or depression because the book can be extremely stressful at times. Ohterwise, I think that everyonw should read this book. It is an amazing distopian story with complicated love. There are so many lessons that can be learned from this book that could help us to not make mistakes in the future. Anyone who has read "The Hunger Games" series and enjoyed it, would love this series and should definitely read it.

              It's worth reading. Awesome. And even thought there were somethings I didn't really like it is enjoyable and it was worth my time. I do not regret reading this book at all. I loved the ending and I was kind of sad that the world of Cassia, Ky, and Xander was over. And I also think that there should have been a fourth book. I mean, we got to see Cassia and Ky's love story. What about Xanders?
