REVIEW:

Moirai is a second book that is not to be missed!  I can say that I enjoyed it a little bit more than the first book because of the way it had me on the edge of the seat. Moirai is action packed from the first page to the last, ending with a very emotional and upsetting cliffhanger.  This goes without saying but I need Isaura now!  Is it December yet?
Joshua and Olivia’s characters really develop during the second book.  Their understanding of one another deepens while continuing to make decisions for the greater good.  I have been rooting for them since the beginning and I really enjoyed seeing them grow in this book.  I also really liked the way that the romance between them did not overshadow the plot, I am all for romance but action will keep me reading past my bedtime!  
The world building was very consistent between the two books and the story was taken in some very unexpected directions.  My only negative about the story was that time moved extremely fast when Olive is back in Genesis.  I would have liked to know more about the time she spent their before the fighting began.  
Overall, I would recommend this book to any dystopian lovers or anyone that loves YA!  I read both books in one sitting and simply can’t wait for #3!!!!!!!

Title: Aberrant (Aberrant #1)
Author: Ruth Silver
Published: April 17, 2013
Publisher: LazyDay Publishing (eBook) & Patchwork Press (print)
Genre: YA, Sci-Fi, Dystopian

Synopsis:
In the future dystopian society of Cabal, the government instills equality for all and offers its citizens the perfect system. There is food, shelter and jobs for everyone. The one requirement is to follow the rules without question, including the government’s match in marriage and “The Day of the Chosen”, a lottery that randomly selects families to conceive children as natural means hasn’t existed in generations. Following her eighteenth birthday, Olivia Parker accepts her requirement to marry her childhood best friend, Joshua Warren, and is eager to start her work assignment and new life when it all comes abruptly to an end as she’s arrested and thrown in prison. The only crime committed, her existence.

Olivia is unlike the rest of the world born not from “The Day of the Chosen.” The truth haunts the government and puts her life in grave danger as one simple fact would destroy the perfect system. With Joshua’s help, Olivia breaks free of prison and is forced on the run. Together they set out to find the promised rebel town in search of a new home and new life together. Their situation seems less than promising as they reach the town of Haven. New rules and customs must be adhered to in order to stay. Leaving would mean most certain death in the large expanse of the Gravelands. Time is running out as the government mounts an attack to destroy Olivia and bury her secret with her. Thrown into a world unlike their own, they must quickly adapt to survive.
