  • Khurram
    I got this on the strength of Divergent not the last book in this series. This was a lot better then the first book. I wanted to give it 3.5 stars but is it such an improvement on the last book I thought it deserved a round up rather then down. It is still very slow paced, and there are probably less fights in this book then there were in the last book, but the story is much better and fills in many of the holes/problems in the first book. There ...

    As I was one of the few who actually liked the first book Carve the Mark I am really excited for this continuation of the story!Edit 16th April - ThoughtsI enjoyed The Fates Divide more than the first one. This was a good continuation of the story. I felt immersed into it right away - Veronica Roth didn't take long to get right to business. The characters and their relations felt more flashed out - it was like a game of chess and we saw every pie...

    I actually really loved the completion of this duology! I remember being hesitant about reading the first book when it first came out because of the mixed reviews but I usually don’t let that prevent me from checking out a book, and I actually did enjoy the first. But in my opinion, this second book was even better! There were so good twists and yeah someone does die in the first 20 pages, but the story just keeps you interested. I honestly pro...

    While the first novel was very much a world-building novel that focused on just one or two specific locations, The Fates Divide is somehow more of an introspective character piece that spans across different planets. It focuses less on the larger world and more on how the characters perceive it. The world-building in Carve the Mark was done through the characters of Cyra, Akos, and company, but the world-building in The Fates Divide is what compl...

    I was lucky enough to read The Fates Divide early. Not only is it filled with the kind of wonder and inventiveness that makes sci-fi a joy to read, it's a thoughtful, clever exploration of strength through its characters--particularly its female characters--that asks us to think differently about how we are strong and how we can be strong in the face of unimaginable odds . . . and to never, ever underestimate ourselves. On top of that, the worldb...

    “When it comes to life, we spin our own yarn, and where we end up is really, in fact, where we always intended to be.” ----Julia GlassVeronica Roth, the international bestselling author, is back with a bang and with her new book called, The Fates Divide that marks the end of this fantastic duology named, Carve the Mark. Up in the galaxy of stars and lives, two major planets are at war, and the fates of two teenagers who also happen to be in ...

    The fates divide 3.75⭐The first book was more political which is why i wasnt a fan but this book (after having the world and political details already formed) was alot better. I love the friendships and how each character has their own personality and attitude that shines through so clearly without having to directly say it but how they say it. I like that they needed to ration and fight through the days it was realistic for a dystopian. If you...

    No spoilers in this review of The Fates Divide. I give it 3 stars. Unlike many readers, I enjoyed Carve the Mark, the first book in this series. Even though the subject matter was much different than Roth’s Divergent series, I saw similarities as far as how both series progressed. They started off with a bang—a promising story with some mysteries about which I was dying to know the answers—but in the end, Roth couldn’t quite deliver.This ...

    Guys the day is here! I was so pumped and excited to read this book and since finishing it this afternoon I'm still struggling to believe that it's finally over. If you're not familiar with the story behind Carve the Mark it follows two people, Cyra and Akos, as they are thrown together by the ruling family of their nation. One the daughter of the man once in charge and now the sister to the one who replaced him. Akos a boy with a gift of being u...

    3.5 ster. Op sommige momenten kon het verhaal mij niet bekoren, terwijl sommige stukken juist fantastisch waren. Recensie volgt op mijn blog!

    The Fates Divide was spectacular
  • Binta Userkaf
    This. Book. I had been anticipating it so much that i reread the first one so the story would be fresh in my mind just in time for this one. I got it on the day of, read it in 6 hours and let me tell you - it was a ride. I was scared half the book for my feelings and that of the characters and just it blew me away. Beautiful scenery, powerful quotes and jarring plot twists, this book definitely makes the list of my favorites. Thank you Veronica f...

    Alright Ms. Roth, you have redeemed yourself with that ending!!! All I wanted was for my babes to be together and thank God she delivered this time! All in all I really liked this series but I did like the first book better. There were some great one liners though and I felt the way the story developed wasn’t too far fetched 😊
  • Rebecca (areadersrambles)
    3,5/5Hoewel ik geen al te grote fan was van het eerste boek in deze serie, heb ik echt van dit boek genoten. Omdat dit het tweede en laatste boek in de serie is, was er niet zoveel world building meer als in het eerste boek, waardoor je je helemaal op het verhaal kunt focussen! 😍 Cyra en Akos leggen beiden een belangrijke, emotionele weg af, terwijl ze ook nog eens hun wereld proberen te redden van een gevaarlijke tiran die schijnbaar uit de d...

    Chyba jestem jedną z nielicznych osób, którym się podobała pierwsza część a Niezgodnej nienawidzi. I słuchajcie, kontynuacja. JEST. TAK. DOBRA. ŻE. MUSICIE. PRZECZYTAĆ. Po tej powieści widzę, że Roth to mistrz. Świetna seria, jedyna w swoim rodzaju!

    *Source* Library*Genre* Young Adult / Fantasy*Rating* 3-3.5*Thoughts*The Fates Divide is the second and final installment in author Veronica Roth's Carve the Mark duology. In addition to Cyra Noavek and Akos Kereseth's point of views, the author has added in two new alternating perspectives: Eijeh Kereseth and Cisi Kereseth. Each have their own unique powers—and their own agendas and are probably the two least likeable characters in this entire...

    Rating: 4.5I waited 1 year for this book and i was a little scared of starting it when i had it in my hands.Why?Allegiant.If you read the book you know what i mean.-Cyra fucking Noavek is with you.- -How did you know my middle name?-Like always i loved Cyra. Shes fierce, smart and strong. She's my perfect heroine.This book is written from 4 different prospective; Cyra, Akos, Cisi and Eijeh.I didn't enjoied very much Cisi parts just because i hate...

    I was so excited to start this conclusion, and I'm happy to say I'm not disappointed. Even though I would've preferred an ending with more closure, I can't say the ending Roth wrote was bad. I'm glad she didn't do an Allegiant ending this time. I liked the growth of some characters and the introduction of new ones. Some characters that were just okay in Carve the Mark now really grew on me. The plot twists weren't as shocking as I expected them t...
