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.
My Review: When I first started reading this I wasn't quite sure what to expect but, as I got more into the story I was pleasantly surprised. Aberrant is a story of truth friendship mixed with a little bit of how the truth isn't always what it seems. I enjoyed reading this book it did remind me a bit like Hunger Games which was just fine with me as I loved that series. Aberrant takes the two main characters Olivia and Joshua's and turns their entire world and existence and turns it upside down. They are left not knowing what is truth and what is lies as they embark on a journey for their lives. Along the way they discover hidden secrets and lies that only leave them wondering who they can and can't trust. I was overjoyed to read this story and I have high hopes that the rest of the series will only heighten my experience.

Olivia has been on the run from the government of Cabal since the marriage ceremony. Finally settling in and finding herself a place to call home, in Shadow, Olivia and Joshua are preparing for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months.

A constant rollercoaster of emotion and adventure await Olivia and Joshua, as they embark on a journey to the rebel city of Torv, and what was once home, Genesis.
My Review: Moirai did not skip a beat it picks up right where Aberrant leaves off and what a start it is. As Olivia and Joshua uncover more truths about their lives and their home it leads to them running from the government trying to find a safe place to hide. As the story starts unfolding deaper you learn that Olivia isn't like everyone else and has to decide ti stand and fight for what is right or let the government find her and use her as a lab rat to discover her differences. Olivia and Joshua are in for the fight of and for their lives as the uprising begins. They both discover what is really worth fighting for and what is just more of the government trying to enforce more lies than truths on the people they care most about. I was totally blown away by this the second book in the Aberrant series and am so looking forward to the third in hopes to find how it all comes out in the end. Ruth Silver has spun an amazing series that leaves me yearning to know how it all will cast it's web for Olivia and Joshua.
