Moirai Excerpt

My feet crunched on weeds as I pushed my way through the waist-high grasses towards the river. It was rare anyone ventured outside of Shadow. In most cases leaving wasn't permitted. Was I breaking the rules by being here? I didn't know the answer to that question and hoped I wouldn't find out. Bending down, my body hid among the grasses as I dipped my bare feet into the water. I shivered and grimaced, scrunching my nose from the sensation. As quick as my feet had dipped into the icy cold water, I pulled them out. With a slight splash I heard a rustling in the distance.

“Who's there?” My voice echoed as I stood. I wasn't afraid. Shadow was my home. Although I'd ventured from the town, it wasn't far. I glanced in the direction of Shadow and could barely make out the community. Perhaps I'd traveled further than I thought.

The grass shifted in the distance and I felt my heart skip a beat. My eyes widened as I quickly took off for town. I ran as fast as my legs would take me. Gasping for breath, I refused to slow down. Whether it was an animal or an outlaw, I wasn't waiting around to find out. Swiftly, I headed for Shadow. My knees lifted higher off the ground with each bare step I took. I didn't turn around but I could hear the pounding of weight against grass. Whoever or whatever was behind me wasn't small or light and they were gaining on me. I didn't have time to scream as I felt a large body coming down hard on top of me. My face slammed into the grass, scratching my cheek as I gasped for breath. “Help!” The words barely left my lips as my head lolled up from the ground; someone ripped at my hair and slammed me fast back into the grass. I bit my bottom lip, tasting dirt as I jammed my elbow behind me. I had to think fast. I'd spent months in Shadow training and now was the time to use it!

“Having fun yet?” the voice echoed into my ear. The whispered breath made me shudder. I didn't recognize the voice. Was I supposed to? I couldn't turn my head around, no matter how hard I tried.

My Review
 
Oh, how Ruth never seizes to disappoint! Moirai was everything I could of hoped for and more! Ruth took angles that I never excepted, and it was a wonderful surprise to have this book go in a totally different direction then I thought!

First, the writing was hypnotizing. The characters felt like they had their own voice in this book. Not only was the main characters well developed, but the side characters had their own way to express themselves. And that was a big plus in this book!

The Plot:

Olivia and Joshua are back, and they've never been stronger, In this heart-pounding second installment in the Aberrant trilogy.

Olivia and Josh are still battling for their lives, and for the future of not only their world, but the rest of the cities combined!

  After going on the journey of their lives in the first book, Olivia and Josh find themselves into the rebel alliance in a small town called Shadow. Its a secret, secluded and undisclosed, rebel town, that's preparing for an uprising to take down the government and everyone in it.
 
But that's not all this little town has to offer. Olivia and Josh are tricked into a procedure called mindonsiphan. It gives them enhanced supernatural abilities, to become stronger, faster, smarter, and more capable of having the skill and power to take down the government and win the war they've been so desperately fighting for.  With these new abilities and their new alliance with the town of Shadow, Olivia and Josh might just be able to have the lives they've also hoped for!

But all is short lived as everything comes crumbling down around them as bombings and death create chaos in their once little peaceful town of shadow. To help with the cure to their problem with infertility in woman, and search for answers to the rebellion, Olivia and Josh travel to the rebel City of Trov. But what they find there will rock Olivia's world to the very cure, and change everything she once knew!

Secretes will be revealed, alliances will be formed, lives will be lost, betrayals will be made, and lines will be crossed, as Oliva and Josh fight they way through the war to bring freedom and independence back to their people.

But do Olivia and Josh have what it takes to lead an uprising and win? Will their love make it through this battle and survive? But most important, will Olivia and Josh have the will and strength not to give up?

Oh, yeah, that was such an awesome ride! I can't even begin to form the words to describe how I felt about this book! Ruth Silver has come out of no where and blown up the pages with magic and emotion that sweeps you off your feet and has you demanding more!

The third and final book is right around the corner and I can't wait to dive back into Olivia and Josh's adventure to see how their battle ends and if they will have the happily ever after I so desperately crave!

Overall, this series rocks, and book 2 brings more action and adventure to the Aberrant series, that you don't want to miss. I thought the writing was intense and amazing, the action and adventure was more then enough, and the romance left me craving more! This series will go down as one of my favorites ever! Now Ruth, bring on book 3...lol!

Title: Aberrant

Publisher: Patchwork Press
Genre: YA, Dystopian
Published: April 17th, 2013
Pages: 250



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.
