Note: This post reviews the third book of the Matched trilogy. You may like to read the first two books in the series, Matchedand Crossed, before reading this review.
Cassia, Ky, and Xander are now a part of the Rising, the resistance group that has been moving in secret for many years. They are each assigned to different roles, which leads them in different directions.
The Rising emerges at the outbreak of the Plague, threatening the masses. They provide the cure – not the Society. But when an unforeseen mutation caused by the cure begins to develop, neither the Society or the Rising has a solution. It is up to Cassia, Ky, and Xander to search for a final cure themselves. Some are immune to this mutation – but not all.
This conclusion to the Matched trilogy was the most exciting of the three books. I liked the series as a whole, and recommend it to readers of dystopian fiction.
