Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best seller!

In the second book of the Carve the Mark duology, globally best-selling Divergent author Veronica Roth reveals how Cyra and Akos fulfill their fates. The Fates Divide is a richly imagined tale of hope and resilience told in four stunning perspectives.

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.

Okay..... Not as good as the First

Loved the first book in this series. I found that this one took a long time to get going and was not near as attention grabbing.

Great second in a series

This book has great characters, and the writing is substantial. Keeps you guessing and there is good action to follow. I love listening to books! #Audible1

Needed to know

Glad to have the tale complete though a little too “happy ending.” Good YA/Adult crossover appropriate for all—vey little objectionable to younger readers.

Worth your time if you read book 1

It definitely falls short of the quality of the first book story wise, but I found the narration entrancing.

I love anything she puts out

The first book was a little confusing in the beginning but this book was amazing from start to finish. It even had something that surprised me, and im good at guessing plots. The only thing i did not like was how it went from first person to third. I would have loved for both point of views to be in first, but i understand the need to do what was done. Overall this book was amazing, and i will re-listen to both of them every few months. I highly recommend you listen to this book.

A mistake in the audio (possibly in the book)

In the Chapter 53, Cisi is reciting her fate but the voice actor for Cisi says it incorrectly. She says (something to the effect of) “the first child of the family Noavek will succumb to the blade” but the fate is actually “the first child of the family Kereseth will succumb to the blade”

Great end, albeit to short for my liking. I hope to see a continuation in the story.

First of all, I loved the book and the narration was done very well for the most part. As I stated in my review for the first book, I believe that Emily Rankin is a bit overdramatic when doing some of the male voices. I feel that she was trying to speak lower than her voice allows. Aside from this one downside, I loved the book. I would love to see her continue the story in some way.
