Reached (Matched #3)

YA Dystopian

After leaving Society to desperately seek The Rising, and each other, Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again. Cassia is assigned undercover in Central city, Ky outside the borders, an airship pilot with Indie. Xander is a medic, with a secret. All too soon, everything shifts again.

My Review:
**3 Stars**

A disappointing end to the series. It left a lot of questions unanswered, yet it wasn't open enough for the reader to create their own ending. I just wish there was a little more. Not another book more, but another couple chapters just to finish everything up.

I really liked how Xander's point-of-view was added in. It gave Reached something that Matched and Crossed seemed to have been missing. My complaint about the switching POV's is similar to my complaint about Crossed; you really had to pay attention to the name at the chapter's head. Even though the characters' locations were different, it was easy to get confused as the POV's were all similar in tone. This mad it a little hard to distinguish between characters.

It had the potential to be a fantastic ending to the trilogy, but the ending of the book just fell a little short. There were a lot of things answered, and a lot of things left too open. I do plan on reading what ever Ally Condie decides to write next.
