Descrições do Produto

Contracapa

In a galaxy powered by the current, everyone has a gift.

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 the son of a farmer and an oracle from the frozen nation-planet of Thuvhe. Protected by his unusual current-gift, Akos is generous in spirit, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. 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.

Then Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, and the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. Will they help each other to survive, or will they destroy one another?

Carve the Mark is Veronica Roth’s stunning portrayal of the power of friendship—and love—in a galaxy filled with unexpected gifts.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Personally I love the genre 23 de janeiro de 2017
Por David Maldonado - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
Veronica Roth's new book Carve the Mark takes a dive into the sci-fi realm. Personally I love the genre, and often read books from it. I was so excited to read her new book, despite the mix reviews I've seen on Goodreads. I will do my best to discuss what others have criticized and why I believe those criticisms are very narrow-minded. Roth completely hit this one out the park for me and I have quite the book hangover.

Carve the Mark is set in outer space in a world that is unique and dark. Our main characters Cyra and Akos are from opposing groups of people; Cyra is Shotet, a tyrannical nation that seeks to conquer the rest of the planets in the galaxy. Akos is from Thuvhe, a community of morally straight and narrow people, who are gentle and hate violence. In Cyra's and Akos' world, a magical current flows through the galaxy which contributes to every individuals "current gift". Cyra's current gift is dealing out pain with just a touch, a pain she also has to endure every minute of her life. Akos' current gift is his ability to negate other's current gifts. While others would see their current gifts as useful, Cyra and Akos believe theirs to be a great burden. Others seek to use them for their own gain. Cyra in particular is used as her brother's torturer and executioner to any who go against his tyranny.

What I found most refreshing was the gender role switch between Cyra and Akos. Cyra is the strong and fierce one of the two. Her current gift has turned her into a fierce individual, one who has no qualms with taking matters into her own hands, even if it means a fight to the death. As the title Carve the Mark suggest, Cyra's people, Shotets, "carve a mark" into their arms for each life they take. While some do it as a show of strength and pride like Cyra's brother, others like Cyra do it as a reminder of the evil deeds they have done.

Akos is the opposite of Cyra because he's gentle and cringes at the thought of violence. Thrust into Cyra's world, Akos is forced to betray those beliefs and turns to violence to survive. You see, in their world certain people are born with "fates" that oracles like Akos' younger brother can see. Not everyone has a fate, but those who do can't escape them. It's due to Akos' fate that is forced into Cyra's Shotet world. Both characters struggle to deal with their fates and their own personal demons. I found Cyra and Akos to be authentic and raw. Their budding romance has not come easy and I loved that it didn't. It was real and honest. Each found something in the other that they benefitted from, and they ultimately changed each other. Cyra learned that she could be more than just a weapon that's used by her brother. Akos taught her that she could rise above her gift and that her gift does not define her. Akos learned that the Shotet people he's grown to despise all of his life are not as black and white when it comes to their brutal nature as he thought.

Veronica Roth has received some harsh criticisms in two areas of her book. Many believe that her story is racist in terms of the portrayal of the Shotet and Thuvhe people. In some areas she describes the Shotet's as bronzer skin and their language sounds "harsh". Thuvhesit's are painted to be of fairer skin and their language is more softer and graceful. People feel this is a depiction of Blacks and Whites, and due to the language of Shotets being described as harsh, they feel it has racist undertones. I will speak out against this claim because if people read more closely, Cyra's brother is described to be of lighter skin with lighter eyes and he's Shotet. Here's a case where people are reading too much into it and blowing smoke when there's no fire.

Another major critique Roth has received has to deal with Cyra's current gift. Although she can dish out pain, she lives with that same pain every day. Roth has spoken about knowing people in her immediate social circle who live with chronic pain in their daily lives, and wrote about a character that deals with the same issues. However, some people feel like she's an ableist because they feel she makes Cyra's pain define her. Veronica Roth did an interview with NPR and discussed how her character was inspired by people having chronic pain. The interviewer says that pain could be a gift, and Roth agrees. The transcript can be found HERE . Again, people are not understanding Roth's intention with Cyra as a character and the message she is sending. Veronica blatantly states how chronic pain is underestimated often by doctors, statistically more so in women. Cyra has to find ways to act and react despite the constant pain she endures. That pain has made her into a stronger individual, therefore able to withstand every curveball that has been thrown at her. Cyra goes through some traumatic things at the hands of her brother, and I believe Veronica Roth intended to portray Cyra as someone who can handle it because of her endurance of daily chronic pain. Once again, I feel that people were critiquing something and forming assumptions based on a misconception of Roth's ideas and intentions. Cyra is indeed tough, even admirable, and while her chronic pain has shaped her into this fierce individual, no way does it define her. Roth clearly makes a point of this when she has Akos tell Cyra she can be more than just her pain. I don't understand how people could totally misread these two elements of Roth's book and furthermore rate it 1-2 stars, but now that I have debunked these "critiques", let's move on.

Roth's characters were dynamic, diverse, and intense. Each one had a distinct voice and none of her characters were cookie cutter. I loved the balance between the build up and the climax of the story. We get a perfect blend of character and world building, and also some very great action scenes. Roth did an amazing job at describing the cultures of her world, and while some people have also critiqued that her world isn't realistic and that some of it doesn't follow the laws of science (i.e. a planet full of mainly water yet inhabitable), at the end of the day it's fiction.

Carve the Mark is gritty, dark, and encompasses all the elements that make a book fantastic. Characters that deal with issues that are relatable to the reader, a romance that is organic and stays true to characters involved, and a spell-binding story about a galaxy of people that are divided and on the brink of war. If you love Science fiction with some dystopian elements sprinkled on top, this book is DEFINITELY for you.

Happy Reading!!!!!

4.0 de 5 estrelas Highly Enjoyable Sci-Fi Novel 14 de fevereiro de 2017
Por Kyera - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Carve the Mark is a science-fiction novel told from two different perspectives. Akos is from Thuvhe, the ruling half of the planet and Cyra is from Shotet, the half that longs to be recognized in the system as legitimate and take Thuvhe's place. At some point as the people of the system make the journey from adolescence to adulthood, they come into abilities. Cyra's harnesses the current, which feeds and surrounds everything but it causes her and anyone she touches unbearable agony. Akos is like her counter-balance since he can disrupt the current. This means it doesn't harm him to touch Cyra and he is able to dampen her pain. Although they are from the same planet they were raised in two very different worlds until Akos is kidnapped and thrust into a culture of people he doesn't understand. Despite what the Shotet put him through, he is still capable of being curious and kind.

It is a wonderful example of history being written by the victors. We don't know exactly what happened, but each party has a different story. Each side is at fault in some fashion and the Thuvhesit people are not as guiltless as they proclaim.

Akos immediately was my favourite character and continued to be throughout the novel. He is likable and cares deeply for his family. While he has to reason to treat Cyra with kindness when they first meet, he takes the time to get to know her. Initially, I did not care much for Cyra but as her character grew and developed I liked her more. She learned that she did not have to be defined by those who raised her and had the ability to change.

It only took a few chapters before I was completely engrossed in the book. There are a few aspects that could have been improved in the book. The author seems to be a lover of the comma. As a writer who personally overuses it myself (and am trying to get better about), I noticed that so many of her sentences had numerous commas. It made parts of the text more difficult to read and complex than the needed to be. The other odd writing choice I noticed was her choice of point of view. She switched between Cyra and Akos' perspectives, which is not unusual - but she used the first person for Cyra and the third person for Akos. That was a different choice than what I'd experienced in books before and I'm not entirely sure if I enjoyed it.

The world we find ourselves exploring is vividly and beautifully described from the icy cities of Thuvhe to the watery Pithe, the vast reaches of space, and the ever-changing coloured current that binds it all together. While we are not given the opportunity to explore all 9 planets of the Assembly and the smaller bodies, I hope that we shall see more of them in future novels. Each culture and people we encounter is so unique and fascinating to explore more of.

Highly recommended to young adult/teen readers who enjoy science fiction books. I enjoyed that the title of the book was really meaningful to the overall narrative and journey that the characters go on. The book was wrapped up in a way that leaves you satisfied for now, but always wondering what comes next. It is another great series start for Veronica Roth and I can't wait to see where she takes us.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Starts off slow, but gets better 17 de fevereiro de 2017
Por M - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
The first several chapters were painful to read. I had no idea what was going on, there were so many characters, but as the book goes on it started making more sense and I started to enjoy the book. I thought the story itself was interesting, and I really liked Cyra's character. What I disliked the most about the book is the switching between first and third person (it seemed Cyra's POV was first person, while Akos' was third person). I don't know if there was a reason for this, but it really irritated me. I will likely read the sequel since it ended on a cliffhanger, but I probably won't rush out to buy it when it's released.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Reads Like a Film Script 3 de abril de 2017
Por Morgan Powers - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I don't know if it's because her previous book series became a movie series or if she just didn't have as much passion for this story but this reads like a film script not a book. The details of emotion and experience are lacking. I like the concept of this series and I like the characters but there just didn't seem to be a big commitment to the plot. Climax moments were short and rushed.
Generally disappointing.
3.0 de 5 estrelas Fantastic story, but editing needed 9 de abril de 2017
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This story is FANTASTIC!! omg, I love the characters and the plot and the settings! But the writing could be a lot tighter. Especially in the first few chapters. The writing was so disjointed and bland that I almost put the book down. But I'm glad I didn't because once I got into the story and it's plot I realized how deep it is and I became hooked! So, great idea but I hope that with book 2 in this series more attention is paid to the writing/editing.
