SummaryAdd a Summary
"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 his brother out alive—no matter what the cost.
Then 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"
When the prophecy of his fate is broadcast to the universe Akos and his brother are captured and taken by the Shotet where they are enslaved by the Shotet leader who himself wants to overcome his own fated future. When Akos is forced to serve Cyra, the Shotet leader's sister and weapon, he is surprised by what he discovers about this monster. Wrestling with unexpected gifts and unavoidable fates two enemies find themselves working together to overcome the pain that they and their planet must face.
