This book didn't really work for me and there are, on the surface, a lot of reasons why it should have. Firstly, because I love dystopians. And I also love mystery and intrigue. I love friends-to-lovers, and I love YA. What I don't love are books that feel like they're trying to cash in on a popular genre, rather than adding something new or dynamic to it.

ABERRANT tries to be everyone's friend. Kinda like those people you meet who seem to change and morph into a completely new personality right before your eyes depending on what crowd they're in or who they're speaking to, but otherwise seem devoid of their own authentic personality. Maybe they had one once, but they've been pretending to be so many other people for so long in order to fit in, they've forgotten.

You can't please all of the people all of the time. And you can't fool all of the people, either. Adding lots of different (and familiar) ideas from the dystopian genre all into one book, didn't make this the Über Dystopian the author was probably hoping for - the one that has it all, the best bits from all the bestsellers. No, no. It really didn't. It just made a mish mash, a hodge podge of different individual stories that did not, in any way, work as a whole.

As the characters moved from location to location it was like moving through each familiar book. "Oh, look! Now we're in the Hunger Games section!" Or like the author wasn't sure which story she wanted to tell, so she flitted and drifted and refused to settle on one idea. I haven't recapped the plot in my review for this very reason; it was too messy. It would take too long to explain all the little mini stories.

So, this one wasn't the book for me, sadly, but I do love that cover...

I really, really loved this book! The pages are loaded with emotion from start to finish and the imagery and narrative are so strong that you can imagine yourself in every scenario.

Ruth Silver is one talented lady! With a believable concept which in all honesty doesn't feel that far from home, our main character, Olivia, guides us through the beauty, horror and struggle, that is life in her world. The book opens with so much emotion that I was sucked in within the Prologue. This is very rare for me and I have been tempted to skip that part of a book before. The book is paced perfectly for its story and doesn't seem to keep all of the action for the last chapter, something is always going on without a need for force.

I will admit there are some errors in the book, which I will discuss with the author soon and see if it's something which can be fixed for future readers, but even with the errors (there's only a couple) it doesn't detract from the story. I still absolutely loved it! I even went up to bed and huddled under my covers to read just that little bit more! Once you pick this book up you will never want to put it down. The story will be etched into the back of your mind begging you to allow it "just another 5 minutes".

The book is available on Kindle and paperback - both available here on amazon!

You can also find Ruth on twitter @writeawaybliss or at her blog; http://writeawaybliss.com/

This absolute gem of a page turner demands your attention and rightly so! This book deserves a comfy sofa and only the very best coffee you can lay your hands on! You're in for one hell of a ride!

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

I was contacted by Ruth Silver, the author of this book, to promote Aberrant. In my blog there is an interview, spotlight and giveaway. She gave me a copy of the book to read, but it goes without saying that this review is honest.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was thrown headfirst into the action, first meeting Olivia when she is preparing for her wedding day. This piqued my interest, which was held right the way to the end. It was a brilliant dystopian plot, full of turns that I wasn't expecting. It reminded me a bit of The Hunger Games and Brave New World, in that the government was very much in control - so much so that it could control the most intimate of features in its inhabitants' lives. There's a lot of uncertainty throughout the book as to what will happen to Olivia. She's often not as safe as she would like to be, and feels the weight of expectation, the latter of which is something I think a lot of young adults can relate to.

I think what enhanced the book for me was Olivia and Joshua. Their relationship is written really well; as best friends with a complicated aspect thrown in, there's the right touch of familiarity versus the unknown. Throughout, they work as a team, the realism of which I liked - it makes a change to the power games that appear in other YA books where sexual tension is at the forefront. Josh and Olivia have been raised in an environment where conception - and therefore sex - doesn't happen, which made a really refreshing change. Even though they're 18, the reader is able to see certain realisations bloom in their minds, and that was great to read!
