My Review
Olivia must now face her biggest enemy ever. Joshua has disappeared and things just get even worse from there. She has helped take down an evil government but now is hunted by that same government when her secret powers are revealed. She has to show she isn't the bad guy, find Joshua and help the world get to a normal state. That may be hard to do when she is being chased and hunted by a crazy power hungry person with powers of her own. The secret is out and no where is safe.

Wow this book takes so many twist I never saw coming. You learn so much more about the powers what effects it has and why Olivia and Joshua seem stronger than others. There is lots of tragedy in this book as well as hope. I love how Olivia even scared does whatever she can to keep her friends safe. She is thrown into some hard times and has to fight to get back to those she loves. While she has to do some hard things that do haunt her she just wants people to know she isn't a monster. She has many trials to go through in this book and the author does a great job wrapping it up. At times I wish it was more detailed as it skips forward a few times but other than that it is a wonderful book and series.

4 out of 5 Stars

“I'm fine!” I pushed harder on the gas. “They can't be that far ahead of us.” I just hoped we were headed in the right direction.
We drove another twenty minutes north as I moved off the dirt road and onto grass. I glanced back at Rane. “Do you think Craynor could have found a place in Haven to keep Joshua?” “I don't know. Not much was left. There could have been a cellar or basement abandoned that didn't get struck. That's how I survived,” Rane admitted. It at least gave me hope. As we drove north, the rain stopped and the clouds parted. Cresting a hill, I slammed the brakes as we jolted to an abrupt halt. “What the hell?” Gavin's voice echoed as the seatbelt restrained him and his arm shot up on the dashboard to steady himself. A few feet away, I saw outlaws with weapons pointed in our direction. “Hurry up!” His voice threatened in my ear as I slammed on the gas, but our car wasn't going anywhere: the tires had blown from spikes in the road. Locking the doors hadn't helped. They busted the car window and flipped the lock, opening the door, dragging all three of us out.

Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance
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 prepare for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months. With new abilities and special talents from Mindonsiphan, Olivia learns she can do more than most ordinary eighteen year olds. Learning both to hide and perfect her skills will be one of the biggest challenges she’ll be forced to face.
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
Olivia is working on her abilities and trying to be a part of the plans for the uprising. She has to becareful as it seems everyone wants a piece of her. Being a natural born female she is in great demand. Living in Shadow with Joshua she finds they both have many obstacles to face. When she goes back to Genesis she has to confront her mother and learn just how strong she is. Just when they think things will get better something happens that will send Olivia into a fight for more than her life.

Olivia and Joshua learn more about the powers they have gain in this book. While Olivia wants to just be normal she learns that may never happen. They both still love each other just as much and they have become stronger in many ways. I loved seeing different sides of Olivia. She may be young but she shows a protective and caring quality more than once. She also shows she can e a rebel and wants to make the world right again. She doesn't back down and doesn't want to be on the sidelines. I felt sorry for her a few times on how she was treated especially by someone she loves. I was also shocked a few times at all the twist the book takes as I didn't see them coming. The ending had me dying to see what would happen next as it seemed everything was going good then you get hit with a whammy. I was so glad I had the third book so I could read on. If you like a dystopian book that will keep your interest be sure to pick this one up. It is fascinating.

Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance
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.
