Waiting on Wednesdays: Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

Publish Date: January 17, 2017
Publisher: HarperCollins

A new Veronica Roth! The plot doesn't actually catch my eye that much, but I do like Veronica Roth so hopefully she'll impress me.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power — something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive — no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another.

  5. I've only read a couple of Veronica Roth's books and I've enjoyed them! She has an awesome writing style. This book, while not something I would generally pick up, has had so many positive reviews, I may have to give it a chance! Plus, the cover is gorgeous! Awesome pick :)
