Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
In Roth’s new stunning science-fiction fantasy series, we follow two protagonists from warring clans whose fates are deeply intertwined. The worldbuilding that surrounds Cyra and Akos is breathtaking. The cultures are brutal and compelling while the superpower-like currentgifts (something like fates) pull readers into the story. We enjoyed the themes of gender equality, bravery, loyalty, and self-determination in the face of fates.
