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 Thoughts:
I had really high hopes for Reached, but I was thoroughly disappointed.

Xander is [highlight for spoiler: an Official, but part of the Rising]. Cassia is [back in Society, waiting for the Rising to give her something to do]. Ky is assisting [the Rising by piloting airships to drop medical supplies to various places in the Society].

For much of Reached, the Plague is a major part of the plot. However, it is drug out so incredibly much that it made it hard to read. Then when it mutates, the mutation portion is drug out so much. I think this book could've been half as detailed about the Plague and mutation while still including much of the information and not ruin the actual story.

The ending is what made me give this book 3 stars. It was a good enough ending for the trilogy. Whilst I'm not happy who Cassia ended up was still a good closure to the trilogy. However, I'm really bummed that while Matched was incredible and had so much potential, the other two books were lacking.
