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.

Oh, wow. Okay. Let me start this review off by saying this: I had seen Aberrant floating around the internet, seen Ruth post snippets from 5 star reviews, and have wanted to read it for a VERY long time now. I saw that Ruth was holding a book tour for the sequel, Moirai, and couldn’t help myself. I ...
There is a scene in Aberrant that is NEARLY identical to a scene in Divergent, that I had to reread it just to make sure that I had actually read what I had just read! (A few things are switched, but it is basically the same set up). It’s so ridiculously similar that I was literally narrowing my eye...
