Book Info-
By Ruth Silver
Ebook Publication Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Designed by Lazy Day Publishing

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.

My Review:

Aberrant kept me on the edge of my seat! It was like watching a movie when all you want is for a happy ending but there is danger everywhere they go. I think I held my breathe til the very end.
Olivia and her best friend,Joshua, have been lead to believe they are the only city/town left.The government feeds them,shelters them,provides jobs for them,and tells them who they will marry.No worries right?
Well not exactly,Olivia knows she should care who she marries but she does.She has read illegal books with romance in them so she knows there is more to marriage then the picture government has painted.She knows there is another way of making babies besides a lab, but no one is fertile.
when her mother gets caught in an act of treason,Olivia must flee for her life.
To her surprise Joshua flees with her.But just as she feels she is free from the government's control,the rebel forces want to control her.She is humanity's last hope.She has a gift that everyone seems to want to exploit.
After the city they're in is attacked,they must flee again,into the unknown Gravelands. Can they survive on their own? Will they ever be free to live as they choose?
