Fate brought them together. Now it will divide them.

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.

With the addition of two powerful new voices, Veronica Roth's sequel to Carve the Mark is a chorus of hope, humor, faith, and resilience.

My thoughts…

I really enjoy reading the first book Carve the Mark. The Fates Divide, not so much and I am so disappointed. By Chapter 8, I was so bored and by Chapter 21, I was I was ready to quit reading, but I carried on and finally finished it. Cyra and Akos were wonderful in the first book, the author ruined the excitement I had for them in this sequel.

The first few chapters of The Fates Divide pick up where Carve the Mark ended. The author killed off the villain in the opening chapters and it was so uneventful. Most of the book is all talking about the future, fates and families. Then when it seemed like the war was going to happen, everything was over in a few pages, and once again was uneventful.

I really wished that I liked this more. It had an interesting plot but as the story went on, it became predictable, anti-climactic, and BORING. I didn’t appreciate the new addition of two new POV’s, it took away from Cyra and Akos story!
