Waiting On Wednesday in a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we discuss an upcoming release that you’re…well…waiting on! And this seems like the perfect excuse to have mini fangirl freakouts over the books I NEED ASAP.
This week, I’m flailing over CARVE THE MARK
What You Need to Know
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
Published by HarperCollins on January 17, 2017
Synopsis: 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.
Why I’m Flailing
VERONICA ROTH IS WRITING A NEW BOOOOOOOOOOOK.
That’s basically it. That’s the main reason I’m excited. It also sounds very interesting and I’m currently on a sci-fi kick, so this might feed that need and I am really excited to see how Veronica Roth handles sci-fi vs. Divergent‘s dystopian – though I will admit I never finished that series. Basically, finale spoilers are bad and make people *cough*me*cough* never pick up the book because of anger and feels. Sue me.
But I am so excited for this and I need it like yesterday.
