Once reunited, of course there must be trouble in paradise in the second half of Crossed. Ky and Cassia find each other, only to have division sown between them. Cassia and Indy really want to join the rising; Ky really does not. Combine that and the fact that Xander is secretly part of the rising, and you have this week’s reading full of tension. Some of our mysteries continue to linger, and we are still vibing with the central relationship, so we still classify this series as a page-turner, but we are seeing the cracks and foreshadowing of future issues.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-32 of book 3 in the series, Reached.
