Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow
I really liked the way that this book was written. The chapters were short, and the story flowed nicely. It wasn't choppy, and the ending didn't seem too soon. The world that the characters live in is also very creative. The way that the Society runs things is very imaginative and fun to read about. I enjoyed reading it so much that I read the whole book in two days! I liked this book a lot and am definitely going to read teh rest of the trilogy. If you choose to read it, enjoy!
