         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.

first of all I have never read anything like this book before, there was just so much. Think Armageddon meets forbidden love meets hunger games. It had non stop action and adventure, twist and turn on each page. I was on the edge of my seat until the very last page, you just could not guess what was coming next. 
Things on earth are no longer flourishing after world war 3&4 a plague and a deadly vaccination; so we can say earth is pretty much in rewinds. Town are now run by the government with stick rules and harsh punishment. Can you believe they flagged people, I was shocked. 
Imagine all that we take for granted taken away no choice in what we do or even who we marry. 
Olivia Parker 
Babes are now made in labs, relationship are forbidden until the age of 18 when the government choose who you marry. That was the case for childhood best friends Olivia Parker and Joshua Warren. 
They could not be more over joyed by the news however their joy is short lived....and that my friends is the start of one of the most action packed suspense fill stories I have ever read. 
Joshua Warren 
Their journey of discovery off all thing forbidden was just amazing. Not only that but they have to fight for each other and to stay alive.
They face such adversity, but that did not affect their bond or sense of humor. 
very well written and fast pace. 
If you liked the hunger games you will love this

4.5 page turning stars for all the suspense and drama
