Waiting on Wednesday (52) Carve the Mark

 Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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 am Waiting?

I want to know that their gifts are. I want to know if they escape her brother’s rule. Most of all I want to know how their gifts interact with each other.


  1. This sounds really good and I love the cover. Sci-Fi is not really my thing but I have read some very good ones in the past so will definitely give this a try.

  2. I featured this a few weeks go in my WoW post :) It looks SO good and I'm so excited for it too! Hope we both enjoy! Here's my WoW

  3. I'm actually curious about this one! I loved the Divergent books despite Allegiant's ending. So I might just check this one out!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I'm debating on reading this one myself, it sounds really good but I don't trust the author after Allegiant. I hope we both enjoy it.

  5. I have this one! I liked Divergent, but didn't like the other two. This one, I'm nervous to read it, but still very excited to start it. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it, Angela! =)
