The Rising is upon us as we cover the first half of Reached. Cassia, Ky, and Xander are placed throughout the society at key points and watch from different angles as the Rising easily takes over the society through a plague that they alone had the cure to heal. Obviously, we have a long discussion on that and its functionality as a plot device. But of course, since the Rising and Society bear many similarities many things are not fixed and this only continues as a variant of the plague comes along and causes more trouble. Cassia, Ky, and Xander are forced to dive head first into the love triangle of it all and work together to survive. Oh joy, another love triangle.
Next week we will be reading chapters 33-63 of book 3 in the series, Reached.
