A Review of Carve the Mark

Initially, I had no idea that Veronika Roth was the writer of this series. I had seen the second book of this series on display in my local Indigo and thought, “This looks pretty!” A somewhat shallow first reaction to the book, yes, I know. Most often, though, it is the cover that catches my eye…
