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!… (mer)

2.5 stars

I listened to the audio so spellings of names may be off: Akos and Cyra (Sirah, or likely any other number of spellings) are the main characters. They are in space, not sure if they live on different planets, maybe? They spend some time on a spaceship. Cyra’s world is quite violent, but Akos’ isn’t. Somehow they meet. Cyra and her brother are not getting along (can’t recall his name, but starts with an R); he seems to be a king or some kind of leader of his world.

This one got my interest (a little bit) about half way through, but even so, it’s fantasy, so names, places, hard to understand or remember. I don’t like trying to learn different fantastical worlds (it takes way too long to get to the story as one tries to puzzle out all those weird names). Oh, yeah, I hated that they referred to ages by various numbers of “seasons” – when I hear “season”, I think four seasons in a year, so divide that number by 4 and you’ve got years (but then, maybe this isn’t the case on the planets these kids live on). I don’t think that’s what the author meant (four seasons in a year), but it bothered me. The book did get the extra ½ star for catching my attention at least through some/part/more of the second half. ( )

Couldn't finish this one; too many good books and not enough time for those that can't hold my interest. Perhaps I've been reading too much of this genre (teenage sci fi with an organic touch?). ( )

DID NOT FINISH AT CHAPTER 4.

Just not my sort of book,
sounded like it had a promising concept, but futuristic ships travelling through time blah blah blah. You lost me.

It was like reading through quicksand for the first 4 chapters for me anyway. It is now back in the library waiting for its next victim. ;)

Unfortunately I put this down to pick up Obsidian instead. -sigh-

Full Review on my blog!

Wow!!! Veronica Roth is back with a bang. And better than ever.

“Honor has no place in survival.”

Carve The Mark is an deeply riveting sci-fi thriller with non-stop action, heart-breaking betrayal, and an intense survival story that will keep readers flipping pages right up until the captivating ending. Carve The Mark is one of the most highly anticipated books of 2017…..and it without a doubt lives up to the hype! I devoured Carve The Mark and cannot wait for readers everywhere to read this fantastic book!

“You’re a Noavek,” he said stubbornly, folding his arms. “Brutality is in your blood.”

The pace was perfect, the world-building, which was CRUCIAL in this book, was flawlessly done. The visuals, as in Divergent, are very vivid in this book too. The point where I found out the reason for the name of this book; I think my parents thought I was going crazy the way I was jumping and squealing.

“He would die for his loved ones….
She has to kill for hers…..”


Veronica Roth also has a wonderful way of developing side characters without boring the reader. I love the complexity of the characters in this book. Each character has there issues/flaws and neither is all good or all bad. I want to keep this spoiler free, so that’s all I’ll say about this. Let’s just say, there is a lot of character growth throughout the whole book. This is the type of book that swoops in and steals your attention from the first page.

“Akos touched her face. When he first met her, he thought she was this fearsome thing, this monster he needed to escape. But she had unfurled bit by bit, showing him her wicked humor by waking him with a knife to his throat, talking about herself with unflinching honesty, for better or worse, and loving- so deeply- every little bit of this galaxy, even the parts she was supposed to hate…..”

Overall, I think this is a book you should DEFINITELY read if you are into YA. There’s romance, friendship, family bonding, and a whole new galaxy waiting for you. I’m excited about this novel and where it’s going and I can’t wait to jump on the next Sojourn ship she puts out for this series. I highly recommend it!
