Review - Moirai (Aberrant, #2) by Ruth Silver

Blurb from Goodreads:
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.
My Review:

2/5 stars
Months after the end of Aberrant, Olivia and Joshua have made a home in Shadow and are training for the planned uprising. When circumstances mean that Olivia has to go to Torv, a rebel city, she realises that her life may be in danger unless she hides her new special skills.
I found Moirai confusing in places when characters said something odd or reacted in a way that I found strange. I also found myself losing interest at several points and didn't get on with the writing style which seememed disjointed in places.
The idea for this story was good but unfortunately my overall feeling for the book is that it's okay but a bit dull.
