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.

Dystopian is becoming my new favorite genre. There are so many different things you can do with this genre and I think that is why I like it. So many stories can come from it and they are all completely different. With Aberrant I almost got a Hunger Games vibe, only in the fact that they were chosen to do something that they had no choice in.

I liked Olivia and Josh straight away from the beginning. You could feel a connection through them and even though they weren't completely honest at first with how they felt, deep down, I think they both knew. After the marriage ceremony this book picks up super fast and keeps going. It is a fast and adventurous ride. Right when you feel something needs to happen it does, it is both expected and unexpected. But it happens at the right moment so you are not bored at all with the book.

The different trials and places both Josh and Olivia go through do not sound like anything fun, but they make it through with each other in hand. In Haven, I was a bit scared how things were going to turn out. I didn't like Haven right from the start. You could feel something sneaky going on there and it honestly wasnt that different then Genesis. The gravelands didn't seem to bad, but after Haven was the first time I really understood how ruthless they can be.

I am all ready to read the second book in this series. This is by far my favorite dystopian book of 2013, and Ruth Silver is one of my new favorite authors!! Pick this book up!!! I love love loved it!!
