Fight to stay alive.
The Gravelands are a dangerous place.
In a world of uncertainty, Cora Manning knows one thing without a doubt: getting into Genesis will offer her a brighter future.
When the intake coordinator agrees to let her in because of her genetic makeup, Cora discovers the promised city of utopia is nothing like she imagined.
The rebellion has begun.
“What do you want?” I didn't dare ask how he got inside the facility. Based on his clothes and the fact he could easily be my father, I knew he didn't belong inside our walls. Had the fence fallen? The office had no windows; I didn't have a clue as to the hour or how long I'd been asleep.
“You, pretty girl.”
My stomach lurched at the man's tone and his icy touch as he inched the barrel of the gun away only to caress my cheek with the pads of his fingers.
“Get away from me,” I said through clenched teeth and sat up, backing off the cot as I tried to out maneuver him and slip out of the room.
Faster and closer to the door, he blocked my escape. My heart raced and I wiped my sweaty palms against the front of my pants. “Let me go.” I held his stare and refused to show him how afraid I felt.
“Now why would I do that?” he asked, his smile crooked with his left front tooth missing.
My eyes scoured the desk, trying to find something I could use to defend myself against this monster. Did he do something to Noelle and Toby or had they gone home? I felt hot but I knew it was the adrenaline coursing through my veins.
Q&A with the Author:

Q: Will there be other stories in the Aberrant series to follow?
A: There is a fourth book due for release on June 29th, Refuge Forbidden. It follows one of our beloved characters in the Aberrant series, Adelaide as she grows up and struggles with the new laws of society and how the world has changed. It can also be read as a standalone story.
