She’s right. We would compose poems about love and tell stories that have been heard in some form before. But is would be Our first time feeling and telling . . . Every person might have a way to fly, a line of poetry to put down for others to see, a hand to heal.
- page 508, Cassia.
“I can’t help but glance down, greedy, to read a bite, a bit of the poem . . .”
- pg 227. Cassia
I remember what Anna called the three of us. The Pilot. The Poet. The Physic. They are in all of us. I believe this. That every person might have a way to fly, a line of poetry to put down for others to see, a hand to heal.
"I love you, and I always will, but things can't hold like this....Because we've done too much waiting in our lives, Xander. Don't wait for me anymore."
If you let hope inside, it takes you over. It feeds on your insides and uses your bones to climb and grow. Eventually it becomes the thing that is your bones, that holds you together. Holds you up until you don't know how to live without it anymore. To pull it out of you would kill you entirely.
"You cannot change your journey if you are unwilling to move at all." pg. 232
SummaryAdd a Summary
In search of a better life, Cassia joins a widespread rebellion against the Society where she is tasked with finding a cure to the threat of survival and must choose between Xander and Ky.
After leaving Society and desperately searching for 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 has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.
In this gripping conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.
