Veronica Roth is best know for her Divergent trilogy which were adapted for the silver screen: Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant, the first of which she wrote whilst in her final year at college. Her lastest work comes in the form of a duology, Carve the Mark, which takes place 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.
Cyra and Akos grew up in enemy families in a war-torn universe ruled by fate. In Carve the Mark, they fell in love despite the odds – but in The Fates Divide, the fight against their unforgiving world continues.
When Cyra’s father, a soulless tyrant who has been presumed dead for ten years, returns to claim the throne and ignite a barbaric war, Akos and Cyra must overcome the chaos that surrounds them – even as the shocking truth about their fates threatens to divide them.
