Reached is the 3rd and final book in the Matched series, after reading the wonderful first book I knew sucking sequels are on the way. ”Reached” was nothing like an ending, in a word it was dull. Dull and boring, as soon as I started reading it I knew, and just wanted to get over with the series. At first I thought my book was missing few pages then I realized that no, this is how the story is. After the second book I didn’t care about Ky, Xander, or Cassia, although it all ended rather predictably for all three of them. Still I don’t know why a sorter is needed when computers can do that job better and the special bonding between Kay and Indie was something I still don’t get.I wonder how they both became best trained pilots there ever was or how Xander got medical training so quickly.
After leaving society and facing so much of trouble Cassia and Kay are landed in the raising. But again they have to be separated to work for the raising. Cassia has to work in society where she can be useful sorting things and helping the raising when the need arises and Kay has to work with Indie as pilot. Xander is also working for society which is a bit of secret for Cassia but soon everything will shift as the raising is planning to take over but this time with the help of plague. Will Cassia and Kay be together? Will Xander be able to confess his love to Cassia? What will happen to this society and the raising issue?
My rating: 2 out of 5. Sorry, but I really didn’t like how the series ended. 2nd and 3rd book were boring and there was no real story like the first book. But still I recommend this to teenagers who like dystopian series, but be warned about lousy ending.
