Crossed

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.


I want to eloquently explain how I felt about this book, but frankly, all I can really say is that it was a hot mess.  There were some good parts to it, but overall, next to nothing happened, the characters are as flat as ever, and the world-building is so poor that it makes me want to cry. This is a dystopian, woman.

I'm still going to read the third one because I want to know what happens so I can have some closure. And hey, you know what would be crazy? If Condie finally explained who the fuck "the Enemy" is.

Two stars.

So...waiting for the paperback of this is a good bet, then? xD

Most definitely. This book isn't worth $17.

I read Matched and really disliked it. I'm not going to read this one.

Better books out there. xD

Wise choice, my friend. Wise choice. :P
