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 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.
I finished reading this series last week and wasn’t completely blown away by it. It’s got the whole love triangle thing that I love, but the book seriously lacked pace and got incredibly boring at some points (please can we stop with all the describing of the canyons, and get back to the romance already?).
I never developed a feeling of attachment to any of the characters, and trust me, I get easily attached. Nor did I fall in love with Xander or Ky, and I found myself just wanting the series to end. I’m struggling to find something to say about the series because it really didn’t evoke any strong emotions, which is never a good sign, but hey – it’s not the worst thing I’ve read this year!
