It has been a long wait for YA fans of Ally Condie but The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe came out in April. It was worth every moment of the wait. I absolutely adored it. Goodness gracious, it is so lovely. So, everything. The prose is elegant without being self-conscious or pretentious. The point-of-view never falters. The info-dumps aren’t even there, seamless, woven into the narrative with an invisible hand. I truly am in awe.
I thought I could only love one person. Call. I thought I could only make one thing. The armor, to kill.
What if there is more.
What if I can make something else.
What if I can love someone again.
The Voyage of Poe Blythe,311
An older City of Ember and more similar to her previous work Atlantia than the Matched trilogy. Voyage is an emotionally haunting story of grief and resilience and has enough mysteries to keep you reading to the very last page.
