Praise for Carve the Mark:

“Roth skillfully weaves the careful world-building and intricate web of characters that distinguished Divergent.” —VOYA (starred review)

“Roth offers a richly imagined, often brutal world of political intrigue and adventure, with a slow-burning romance at its core.” —ALA Booklist

Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth have grown up in enemy countries locked in a long-standing fight for dominance over their shared planet. When Akos and his brother are kidnapped by the ruling Noavek family, Akos is forced to serve Cyra, the sister of a dictator who governs with violence and fear. Cyra is known for her deadly power of transferring extraordinary pain unto others with simple touch, and her tyrant brother uses her as a weapon against those who challenge him. But as Akos fights for his own survival, he recognizes that Cyra is also fighting for hers, and that her true gift—resilience—might be what saves them both.

When Akos and Cyra are caught in the middle of a raging rebellion, everything they’ve been led to believe about their world and themselves must be called into question. But fighting for what’s right might mean betraying their countries, their families, and each other.

When the time comes, will they choose loyalty or love?

And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful follow-up novel!

    I read this book at least 10 times. You know it’s a good book when you can read it multiple times. Some of my friends in 7th grade say that this book is for middle schoolers (even though I read it when I was ten), but if you are a VERY mature reader, READ THIS NOW!!! (Also, the book makes more sense when you read it a second time)👍
  • Amazing!

    Love this book!! I really thought that everything went together perfectly and the characters are so cute.
  • Confusing

    By books and more books
    This book started off confusing and when I finished is I was still kinda confused. Also it was kinda boring that I felt like I didn’t really read the book. It felt like, when I was trying to remember what I just read, I was recalling a book that I read years ago. It was also very predictable. I didn’t like how it was written as well. First two chapter were the boy then BAMM!! part two and twenty chapters of only the girl. Then part three were it went back and fourth between the two sometimes I was confused who I was reading about. I would not suggest buying this, rent it from the library or something.
  • WAY better than Divergent

    It's a relief to finally have a Young Adult book that's more Adult than Young. This book does not shy away from death or violence, and can be rather brutal at times. The science fiction of it is also a welcome and refreshing break from the countless dystopian novels. A trend that irritates me in many YA books is that there's always a lot of nothing happening. That's not the case here. Carve the Mark is very well paced, every chapter and scene has meaning and purpose to developing the characters and keeping the story moving forward. I only have one complaint about this book: the last chapter should be removed. Don't worry, I won't spoil anything. The second to last chapter has a pretty significant ending, one the that would do a great job of leading you into the second book. And then you read the last chapter. It's not a bad ending in the way you might be thinking, it's humble and heart warming and gives you a sense of camaraderie amongst the characters. Sounds good, but not when it comes AFTER what would've made for a great ending, it completely downplays the events of the previous chapter as if they weren't that important. It felt like an ending to give you a sense of closure, but in doing so, makes you forget that you're only half way through the story.
  • The best way to get hooked on a book is to start in the middle..

    Said no one ever. Sample starts on Chapter 7. Enough said.
  • A game changer

    If you expected this to be a fast paced book it wasn’t.It sort of threw me off until i became aware that you had to swallow it bit by bit to actually engulf the book and understand it. The details were there beautiful and precise. It’s a story that you have pace yourself to actually enter it’s world and understand it. It’s intricate and reminds you of our daily challenges in today’s world society because we don’t understand cultures of different regardless of how close by borders we are and yet so different even if we live and breathe the same air. Roth did a great job. Can’t wait to read the Fates Divide!
  • Blah!!!

    I can’t believe I’m giving this book one star!! I’m a fan of VR and was excited to read more from her. She’s shown she’s a great story teller when it comes to books, but I’m so very disappointed with this story. It was completely painful to follow. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters or the story. It was very confusing at times. I agree with others that the whole thing needed more development. This is the first book I couldn’t wait to finish because it felt more like finishing a chore. The entire time my mind wandered: “can’t wait to delete this book from my iBooks”
  • Eh

    By MercedesLicerio
    It was mostly filler and it just wasn’t as engaging enough to deserve more than three stars. The characters were bland and predictable. This is the kind of book I’d read if I turned my brain off. If that were possible, it might’ve been worth five stars.
  • Incredible

    I read this book in a matter of 2 days, because I just couldn't put it down! The whole entire storyline and plot is thought out so well, and you can easily tell how much work was put into his novel. The book touches your heart with emotion and let's you see the perspectives of two different lives. I read the divergent series previously, and loved that trilogy! I heard a lot of people were afraid to read this book because of the ending of allegiant, but don't let that stop you! The ending of allegiant was insanely depressing, but I don't think it could've ended in a better way! Carve the Mark is worth it! Veronica Roth has never disappointed me before, and continues to thrill me with her amazing novels!
