My Aberrant Pre-Reading
My Aberrant Review

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 are preparing for the uprising that they and the rebel alliance have been planning for months.

With new abilities and special talents, from Mindonsiphan, Olivia learns that 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.

Why?: I read Aberrant not too long ago (the link for my review is above), and I enjoyed it quite a bit more than I expected to. It ends right in the middle of everything though, so of course I jumped at the chance to get my hands on Moirai! 

Expectations: I expect this book to quite a bit more intense than Aberrant, but to still have the same suspense and excitement and world-building that the first book had. I have higher expectations now that I've read some of Ruth's work, so I'm really looking forward to diving into this one. 

Judging a book by its cover: This cover is really similar to the first one, but I love how the model changed to reflect the changes that Olivia made in Aberrant. It's the same model, but her appearance is slightly different, just like Olivia. Based only on the cover though, I'm not sure if I would pick this up. The girl on the front is so stereotypical YA that I'm afraid it would just blend in with all of the other books out there.
