#1 New York Times Bestseller!

In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally bestselling Divergent author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. The Fates Divide is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives.

The lives of Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth are ruled by their fates, spoken by the oracles at their births. The fates, once determined, are inescapable.

Akos is in love with Cyra, in spite of his fate: He will die in service to Cyra’s family. And when Cyra’s father, Lazmet Noavek—a soulless tyrant, thought to be dead—reclaims the Shotet throne, Akos believes his end is closer than ever.

As Lazmet ignites a barbaric war, Cyra and Akos are desperate to stop him at any cost. For Cyra, that could mean taking the life of the man who may—or may not—be her father. For Akos, it could mean giving his own. In a stunning twist, the two will discover how fate defines their lives in ways most unexpected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A story of fates and how they can be changed The Fates Divide by Veronica Roth is the second and final book in the Carve the Mark Series. I give it 4.5 stars because although the plot is genius, I found the names of the characters and places hard to keep track and had to make a list of names and characteristics, as well as a map of planets and cities to follow the story. Veronica Roth portraits very strong female role models in this book and is not afraid to go outside the stereotypes associated with female heroes. This YA book is a story of fates and how they can be changed. Great series!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disapointed I had high hopes for this book, I was really excited to get my hands on a copy and thought I would devour it like I had with Carve the Mark. The plot is waaaay too similar to Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen series,so much so that at times I was expecting to read "Rise Red as the dawn"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome read! This book is a great sequel to Carve The Mark, lots of character development and overall a good read. Also, the plot twist is INSANE. 10/10 would recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Developed Characters, But A Lacking Plot It took me a week to read this book, which, for me, is quite a long time. In all honestly, it’s not that I didn’t enjoy it. It was dark and delved deeper into war, fate, love, family and blood that I ever imagined it would, and definitely better ‘Carve the Mark’ in many aspects. It was a good book, basically, but for the three problems I had with it: 1) THERE WAS SO MUCH FILLER. Travelling to new planets and getting SO caught up in the life there, that their mission, whatever it was, seemed forgotten. Basically, filler, and a lot of places I didn’t care about. 2) I JUST WASN’T INVESTED? I cared about Cisi, Akos, Cyra, Isae and the rest, but I didn’t care ENOUGH to sit at the edge of my seat and wonder if they would survive. 3) WHERE WAS THE PLOT, REALLY? I struggled with this concept so much, because there was SO MUCH description about medicine making and Ogran lifeforms (a planet in the galaxy) but the actual WAR SCENES and the CONCLUSION were so rushed that I was left… stranded? Wondering WHAT HAPPENED because The Fates’ Divide totally glossed over the most important parts of all. *SIGHS EXASPERATEDLY* There were a lot of things I LIKED about the book as well, including: 1) THE DIFFERENTIATING VIEWPOINTS: I absolutely loved that this book was told from five different viewpoints – Cyra and Akos, from book one and also Isae Benesit, Cisi and Eijeh Kereseth. It really showed you what was happening from different corners of the galaxy and I loved, especially, the three new POVs. 2) EIJEH KERESETH: I LOVED HOW Veronica Roth wrote this boy (no spoilers, don’t worry), especially after everything he endured at the hands of the Noavek family in book one, and I really looked forward to his viewpoints. 3) ISAE BENESIT: We knew (or I remember) almost nothing of Isae Benesit from Carve the Mark, but I loved her story, as we saw her navigating political alliances and the Assembly of the nine planets. I loved learning about her through both her and Cisi’s points of view. And that’s it, I guess. I thought The Fates’ Divide was better than Carve the Mark, but I’m not the BIGGEST fan of the series as a whole. I definitely felt it could’ve been better in terms of plot, especially at the important parts and that there was LESS FILLER. 3 stars. *waves goodbye*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A worthy follow up Enjoyed this one more than the first, more political but also carried over a lot of what made the first book so good. Slower in some spots but when it picks up it does so very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slower pace, but a satisfying finish... I am glad this book wrapped up all the questions remaining from the first installment of the series, but at times, it did seem to drag on, as other readers have mentioned. Waaaay more politically oriented than the previous book.

Editorial Reviews

“This duology offers shades of George Lucas sprawl and influence, Game of Thrones clan intrigue, and a little Romeo & Juliet-style romance.  There are cliffhangers aplenty and dangling plot lines to lure us to the next book.”
