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 18th 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. Times 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.

I was excited when I read the premise for the book, but it just didn’t measure up. Grammar was awful and it just wasn’t well developed. It’s like several people wrote pieced that didn’t fit together.

Don't read if you can't finish series
Loved it but now I have to finish the series. At first I was afraid it was another Hunger Games but it quickly showed it wasn't. It is a love story in the future world with rebels fighting the governments control but other then that it is different. I know I'm hooked and handing it to my twelve year old to listen to also. The reader was awesome ....enjoy
