A good book for all dystopian novels followers...Dont waste your time on reading summaries,just jump into the chapter already.

Choose wisely, which by the way means read the chapter already!!

Spoiler Alert but significant people are often told their unltimate demise when they are young. Most of them are still alive at the end of the novel despite the feel that the novel should be finished! Ryzek makes revelations which no one knows about almost at the end of novel. A very clever device to make the reader want to carry on reading the series to see how the foreshadowing comes to pass.
I really enjoyed the audiobook version with actors who really made the narrative live. I hope they are the same for the next novel too.
A well-crafted new fantasy series by a proven sci-fi talent.
I was given a free copy of the novel for my fair and honest opinion through Instafreebie.
I pre ordered that book after reading this
I expected more from this book, and perhaps my assumptions were unfair. Carve the Mark took a lot of getting used to; the world is so different from ours, and at first all the references to items of their world are only confusing. The new information seemed to stop for a bit, then start again, a slower trickle which is how it should be. Facts were cleverly repeated many times to ensure readers would remember it.
Cyra's currentgift causes her pain and allows her to inflict in on others. Her brother uses her as a weapon and torture tool. I like how currentgifts can change, evolve as the person does and they have a direct connection to their owners' personality. Akos's gift's reasoning is yet to be revealed, but I'm curious nonetheless. The second half of the book fared a lot better than the first because it contained much more action, plan devising and conflicting matters.
The introduction is conducted poorly, but Carve the Mark is very enjoyable once you've figured out what's happening and what these terms mean. And if in doubt there is a glossary provided at the back of the book. These characters and their 'sealed fates' only make the story more interesting. I was able to predict part of one major event, due to clues hidden in the first chapters. Science fiction, advanced technology, different beliefs and environments... Carve the mark.
