Jessica's Waiting on:

Title: Carve The Mark
Author: Veronica Roth
Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books 
Publication Date: January 17th, 2017

Summary: 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. 

I was a huge fan of the Divergent series, so I'm so super excited to get my hands on another Veronica Roth book! If she writes this one as well as she did the Divergent trilogy, it's going to be fantastic. *heart eyes and grabby hands*

What are you waiting on this week? Leave your links so I can stop back!
