Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her, so when Xander appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows he is her ideal mate--until Ky Markham's face appears for an instant before the screen fades to black.
Little by little, Cassia discovers the ugly truth behind her carefully constructed world and the cost of her “perfect” life. The more she learns, the more she realizes that her choices have a bigger impact than the ones that are made for her. The story will keep you guessing and questioning the Society’s motives until the end. Watch as Cassia’s world crumbles around her, including the ones she loves. Will she be too late to save them?
From the enticing cover to its entrancing story line, Condie’s first volume in a series will grab a hold of you from the first page. It is great for those who loved the action and tension behind the Hunger Games trilogy. As well as, those who loved the romance and love triangle of the Twilight saga.
This is a very fast and easy read! A great blend of dystopian fiction with a romantic twist. I couldn’t put this one down. I was only disappointed to discover that the book’s ending was not the end. Now I have to impatiently wait for the next installment ;-)
