Following Ky’s banishment to the deadly outer provinces in MATCHED, Cassia sets out to reunite with him, risking her both her life and status. Told in alternating chapters, the story reveals much more about Ky’s early life. As Ky, narrator Jack Riccobono solidly portrays a young man who is forced to face too much death. Upon reconvening, the teens sadly realize they want different things for the future. Ky wants nothing more than to live quietly away from the Society while Cassia is determined to join the Rising’s rebellion. Kate Simses’s breathless portrayal of Cassia often sounds younger and less confident than the character is written. Unimpressed listeners may find themselves reaching for the printed book rather than the audio to discover how Condie finishes this dystopian trilogy.
