A review by twilightfanboy
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

adventurous dark emotional tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I found the book only really got intresting/better towards the end so I hope the 2nd book will be a bit better i did first notice the 2nd book at the library then realised its a duology so i of course then read this one first. The 2nd book just seemed a bit more interesting so im hoping it'll be better. The writing in the beginning also just seemed a bit off?
Overall i wouldn't say it's a bad book just got a bit boring at times and felt a bit slow.
Also possible spoiler but not really <in the description of the book they say that they are enemies and somewhere in the book say akos and cyra hate each other but there were never any signs of that and I never felt like they were enemies or hate each other which didnt bother i just found it weird that they said they were enemies and wrote they hate each other when they very much did not?>
