Third and final book in the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie.
This book is told from the point of view of all three main characters: Cassia, Ky and Xander. The book starts in Xander’s POV, and he is a medic in Central helping to cure people from the Plague, as he is an Official. He is with his friend, Official Lei. They are administering the cure for the Plague with others, in the Central Hospital.
Ky is with Indie, and they are flying together. They are working together for the Rising, following orders of the Pilot. When they are put together, Indie rightly guesses that it is time for them to do their job for the Pilot.
Cassia is with the Rising. She is wearing a red dress she traded with the Archivists, and is waiting by the river for Ky to come meet her at night, but as Ky has now got his job, he never comes.
All three are part of the Rising, and are working to bring the Society down.
When the three are reunited, the Pilot takes them to work with some Anomalies to cure the mutation of the Plague that has broken out. On the way, Ky finds out that though Cassia and Xander are immune to the Plague mutation, Ky is not.
Shortly after they reach, Ky gets the mutation and falls into the immobilized state. Xander and Cassia begin to work on the cure, Xander in the actual making area and Cassia helping in the sorting work. They try many cures, and none of them work. This only causes them to redouble their efforts, and they come across many potential ingredients, but they seem to be missing one. One thing, an unknown flower, which will cure the Plague mutation.
They know that if they fail, Ky’s and thousands of others’ lives will pay the price…
This is a good, realistic end to the Matched trilogy. It, like Crossed, can’t compare to Matched, the best book, but unlike Crossed, this one was really enjoyable to read. It’s the longest of the books by far, and the second best of them. The trilogy is good for ages 11-14.
