Carve the Mark merupakan seri science-fiction tebaru dari Veronica Roth setelah merilis Allegiant 2013 lalu. Tapi kalian harus bersabar karena buku pertama dari seri yang rencananya bakal menjadi duology ini baru akan rilis 17 Januari 2017 mendatang.
Fans berharap seri ini bisa mengobati kecewa mereka sama buku terakhir dari Seri Divergent: Allegiant yang dianggap kurang sukses dibanding kedua buku pertamanya, Divergent dan Insurgent.
Sampul Carve the Mark berlatar batu hitam dengan beberapa sayatan melintang yang mengucurkan emas ber-tagline “Honor has no place in survival".
"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 Thuvhe, 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."
Selain itu Veronica juga membocorkan bab 7 kepada Entertaiment Weekly yang bisa kalian baca di sini.
