Cassia and Ky, now separated and placed in unsure and extremely dangerous settings by the Society, must escape and find each other in the wild and dangerous area known as The Carving (a.k.a. SE Utah). And don't forget Xander, Cassia's best friend and official match. who forms the third point in the love triangle, even though he only gets about 7 pages of "screen time" in this volume.

Was it just me, or did 4 out of 5 chapters end with a metaphor, or some other Artistic and Meaningful Author Moment? After 53 chapters, that got almost laughably predictable, not to mention distracting. This book may have suffered from being sandwiched between two Printz contenders in my To Read pile, and I read it with very high expectations. Whatever the reason, it was enough to cool my interest in finishing the series as it develops.
