WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

I adored Roth's YA series so it's no wonder with that gorgeous cover and tempting description that this drew me in as well. It does sound a little more sci fi fantasy than I normally read but I'm willing to give it a try.

Book Description:

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not — their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

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 from the peace-loving nation of Thuve, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, 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. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive — or to destroy one another.

  4. I'm willing to read anything by Roth. The risky ending she took with Allegiant made me respect her even more. Story comes before potential fan outrage and I'm so glad she stuck with the story she was telling and the publisher stood with her.

    1. I agree, it was a risky move. I can't wait to see what else she can do with a series.

  7. I didn't read The Divergent series (gasp! shock!) This doesn't really sound like something I would normally read, but I hope you enjoy it, Ali.

    1. I only read the first book but my daughter read them all and told me about them so it was like reading them. I loved the first book even though I know a lot of people didn't like the others. I have high hopes she will do well with this one.
