Waiting On Wednesday: Carve The Mark

Waiting On Wednesday
which is hosted by Breaking The Spine

This weeks highly anticipated book is "Carve The Mark"

I didn't fall in love with reading YA until after Hunger Games, which was released around the same time as Divergent. I LOVED the series. And recently got into a conversation with an equally big Divergent lover about the abomination that was the last movie. I didn't even go see it. But I wouldn't dare hold that against Veronica Roth.

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.
