In Cassia's society the Officials decide everything, including who you will be matched with for life.


Within the Oria province the Officials control every aspect of life for the members of the Society. They are the ones who decide your job, when and who you marry, and when you will die.

Cassia Reyes: A seventeen year-old good girl who believes in the Society and is anxious to see whose face will appear at the Matching Banquet.

Xander Carrow: Cassia's thoughtful and caring best friend since childhood. The boy every girl dreams of being matched with.

Ky Markham: A bad-boy who lives near Cassia. Outcasted by the community because of his father's actions.

The lives and futures of these three teenagers will become dangerously entwined with one another. Unravel the secrets of the Society and find out the truth about being Matched.


Every minute you spend with someone gives them a part of your life and takes part of theirs.
