Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favoured 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 Thuvhe, 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.

Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.

Peer & Press Reviews

Roth offers a richly imagined, often-brutal world of political intrigue and adventure, with a slow-burning romance at its core.  Roth’s fans will be happily on board for the forthcoming sequel.


Roth skillfully weaves the careful world-building and intricate web of characters that distinguished Divergent, with settings that are rich with color, ripe for a cinematographer.  Roth fans will cheer this new novel with its power to absorb the reader.

Voice of Youth Advocates (starred review)

Brimming with plot twists and highly likely to please Roth’s fans.
