Goodreads Summary:

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky – taken by the Society to his certain death – only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander – who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart – change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

 My Rating of this Book – 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

Crossed is an incredible journey of love and survival. In this dual point of view, two individuals take the same path to find each other, but also discover themselves. Cassia’s story was amazing, but it was actually Ky that captured me. In Matched, you never really get to see Ky except through clues and bits and pieces he reveals to Cassia. But, in Crossed, you actually get to see things from his point of view and learn how he became who he is.

I was only disappointed, however, in the final twist. After everything that the characters went through, I really didn’t expect the book to end the way it does. But I am anxious for the next book to come out!

Overall, this is an awesome book and a wonderful sequel to its predecessor, Matched.
