I read this book AS SOON as I finished Moirai, I just had to know the conclusion to this amazing series, and I was very grateful that I had this book on hand to read right away after Moirai.

I knew right away from book 2, that Isaura was not going to be a person that I liked very much, and I was correct. Just at the very end, we are introduced to her, and obviously based on the book title for book 3, I knew she was going to be a major player. She is not a good person, shes written very well, but man o man did I not like her.

Olivia and Joshua sure do rescue each other A LOT in this series, and most of it seems to be in book 3, but that is okay because I love seeing their devotion and dedication to each other. In book 3 we are taken to different cities we heard about in the past books but never went to. We meet Henry, who I love right away, and worry about his intentions, but turns out to be a great ally.

The scenes between Isaura and Olivia are the best, and what she does to Olivia really scares me, but what happens in the end is just truly amazing and I just loved this whole series!!! The action and suspense and drama that happen throughout this whole series just make it a fun exciting ride. Thank you for this series Ruth!!!


It was dark inside and I wished I’d had more light, a candle, something to help me maneuver through the floors.

“Olivia?” I heard Henry's voice calling out from the entranceway.

“You're blocking my light,” I called, glancing back at him. “Do me a favor and check out the building across the street.” I gestured towards the other similar structure left standing. “If he's anyplace, it'd be somewhere he could lock Joshua up.”

“Sure,” Henry agreed and disappeared. I breathed a sigh of relief, finding a little more light as I wandered through the building.
Joshua? Again there was no response. I hadn't had an answer from him for hours now. I'd hoped as we reached Haven we'd be in close enough contact to connect. It worried me now that I hadn't heard from him and he didn’t respond.

“Joshua?” I whispered, trying to keep my voice down but unsure what else to do. Maybe he couldn't speak with me telepathically. I walked from room to room, searching the entire building, careful as my arms gripped the wall as the building slanted and I slid further downhill. “Joshua?” I called again, this time louder. I heard a creak and glanced around, wondering if it was the building making the sound or me.

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.
