Veronica Roth
“Though I had already read all those books, I wanted to open them again just to search out the parts he most treasured; I wanted to read them as if immersed in his mind.”
“I didn't choose the blood that runs in my veins, any more than you chose your fate. You and I, we've become what we were made to become.”
Een boek van Veronica Roth? Dat ook nog eens uit kwam op mijn verjaardag? Dat is natuurlijk een must have! Om in het verhaal te komen was niet zo makkelijk, maar als je eenmaal leest, ga je als een tierelier! Het verhaal is mooi, de personages zijn goed en sterk neergezet en je verdwijnt weer in een andere mooie wereld.

In a galaxy powered by the current, everyone has a gift.

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 the son of a farmer and an oracle from the frozen nation-planet of Thuvhe. Protected by his unusual currentgift, Akos is generous in spirit, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get this brother out alive — no matter what the cost.
The Akos is thrust into Cyra's world, and the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. Will they help each other to survive, or will they destroy one another?
Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth's stunning portrayal of the power of friendship — and love — in a galaxy filled with unexpected gifts.
