WoW: Carve the Mark by @Veronica_Roth

 
This is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating. 
 
 
 
Here is mine:
 
 
 
Expected Publication: January 17, 2017
Katherine Tegen Books
 
 
Blurb from Goodreads:
 
Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.

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 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.
 
 
 
I happened to come across this online and was immediately intrigued by the book cover. I then read the blurb and I'm not sure how it will go. It could be either good or bad. I really liked the Divergent books, so I'm really looking forward to giving this a try!

  2. I never read Roth's previous trilogy, but I did enjoy the movies. She seems to write action-adventure and I'm always up for those kind of stories. This one sounds pretty good too. Love the cover and the fact that it's sci-fi :)

    Happy Wednesday!

  7. I'm curious about this book! I didn't like Roth's last two books (Divergent was great for me, books two and three were not). Hopefully this one lives up to expectations. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous week. =)
