Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched trilogy, returns in an emotional and tensely plotted novel about revenge, grief, and self-reliance.

Who do you become when you have nothing left to lose?

There is something Poe Blythe, the seventeen-year-old captain of the Outpost’s last mining ship, wants far more than the gold they tear from the Serpentine River.


Poe has vowed to annihilate the river raiders who robbed her of everything two years ago. But as she navigates the treacherous waters of the Serpentine and realizes there might be a traitor among her crew, she must also reckon with who she has become, who she wants to be, and the ways love can change and shape you. Even—and especially—when you think all is lost.

Intricately crafted and emotionally gripping, The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is the compelling story of one young woman’s journey to move beyond the grief and anger that control her and find the inner strength to chart her own course.

RETURN TO YA: Poe Blythe is Ally Condie’s first new YA title in almost five years, and the story instantly reminds why so many passionate fans have come to the Matched series. Ally’s beautifully crafted prose is filled with emotion and tension as she tells us the story of a young woman waking up to the realities of her flawed world, and discovering her strength within.

STRONG HEROINE: This is not only the story of self-discovery in the face of emotional turmoil, but of a young woman thrust into a position of leadership, who must use her grit and determination to survive. The stress and duality of a hardened exterior that masks a still-vulnerable interior is relatable, honest—and needed.

GRIEF & REVENGE: Poe’s grief proves to be her catalyst, propelling her into revenge against Call’s murderers at any cost.

A NEW GENERATION OF MATCHED READERS AND FUTURE POE FANS: Matched has consistently remained one of PYR’s top titles since it was first published in 2010 and it remains an ever-present, evergreen title for all-new generations of readers introduced to Ally through all-school reads, classrooms, libraries, and bookstores.
