Having read The Divergent Series by Veronica Roth, I decided to give Carve the Mark a read. This is an entertaining story with fantastically dramatic and flawed characters. Even better is that every person living in this universe develops powers when they reach puberty, and some are favored by fate. But all is not well on one planet. Cyra and Akos live on the same planet, but in totally different worlds. With their nations constantly at war, the two seem like an unlikely pair. But fate, it seems, has thrust them together. Sacrifices are made, and lines are crossed in this story.
