Series: Book 3 of Matched
The Good: I was highly impressed with how much Cassia has grown up since Matched. I suppose a lot of that was caused by the happenings in Crossed, which proves that the book was slightly more then filler after all. I loved that Reached returned to the society we learned about in the beginning. That the inevitable battle, The Rising, was happening from the inside - sort of bringing the trilogy full circle. I found myself wavering back and forth between Ky and Xander, sort of wanting Cassia to pick both but knowing she couldn't. I really liked that I had trouble deciding.
The Bad: It's over and I'm sad. I wish Cassia had wavered as much as I did in choosing which guy to be with. And the ending - while more realistic than most, it didn't really give a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.
