  Booklist Review

Readers will find themselves worlds away from the pristine confines of the Society in this sequel to Matched (2010). In her search for Ky, Cassia follows his trail to the wilds of the outer provinces, where death and unpredictability greet her at every turn. Ky is determined to find his way back to her, even if he has been condemned to death in service to the Society. By splitting the narration between Ky and Cassia, Condie delves into the inner lives of her characters, plumbing their pasts, confronting their beliefs, and preparing them for a final stand that's sure to come in the next book.--Jones, Courtney Copyright 2010 Booklist

  Kirkus Review

Matched (2010), this volume has its own boons, including non-linear travel through a rough canyon and critical interpretations of Tennyson's symbolism, which could change their world. Questions--about Cassia's vulnerability to the Society's pills, about the Enemy's identity and the Rising's true nature--hover for next time. Both rich and easy to digest, this will leave fans hungry for the third book. (Science fiction/romance. 13 up)]] Copyright Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
Summary
The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy <br> <br> 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.<br> <br> 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.
