Product description


Praise for The Fates Divide "The expansive world Roth introduced in the series opener gets even bigger in this sequel, with a bevy of additional characters, deepened secrets, and complex interplanetary politics."--Booklist Online

"If you enjoyed Carve the Mark and this intricate world that Veronica Roth created, you'll definitely be a fan of The Fates Divide. This sequel...[gives] the reader a closer look while also setting parts of what we thought we knew about the world and the characters aflame."--Hypable

"The Fates Divide features themes like hope and resilience and is told from four perspectives, as the lives of its two heroes are ruled by their fates spoken by the oracles at their births. Of course, a little romance gets in the way as well."--Entertainment Weekly

Praise for Carve the Mark "Roth skillfully weaves the careful world-building and intricate web of characters that distinguished Divergent, with settings that are rich with color, ripe for a cinematographer. Readers will be anxiously awaiting the sequel."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review)

"Brimming with plot twists and highly likely to please Roth's fans."--Kirkus Reviews

"Roth offers a richly imagined, often-brutal world of political intrigue and adventure, with a slow-burning romance at its core."--Booklist

"Roth's worldbuilding is commendable; each nation is distinct, interacting with the current in ways that give insight into her characters' motivations. Roth thoughtfully addresses substantial issues, such as the power of self-determination in the face of fate."--Publishers Weekly

"This duology offers shades of George Lucas sprawl and influence, Game of Thrones clan intrigue, and a little Romeo & Juliet-style romance."--USA Today

"Roth's stories are compelling, emotionally evocative, and satisfying. Riveting."--Kirkus Reviews

"In these stories, Roth invokes romance, action, family, revenge, and loss. They serve as an introduction to Roth's work and a showcase of her versatility, though existing fans will get the most out of these offerings."--Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover


Within this masterful collection, each setting is more strange and wonderful than the last, brimming with new technologies and beings. And yet, for all the advances in these futuristic lands, the people still must confront deeply human problems. In these six short stories, Veronica Roth reaches into the unknown and draws forth something startlingly familiar and profoundly beautiful.

In “INERTIA,” friends Claire and Matt stopped speaking six months ago. When Matt gets into a car accident and his end looks certain, he requests a visitation, a procedure that allows him and Claire to revisit shared memories—and a chance to discover what went wrong.

“THE SPINNERS” follows bounty hunter Atleigh Kent as she tracks and kills leeches—a predatory extraterrestrial race that illegally absorbs human host bodies. But death begets death, and Atleigh is relentless in her search for revenge.

Imagine a unique symphony, a slow ode of aches and joy, notes created by each body as it lives and as it dies. In “HEARKEN,” these songs are heard by a select few. As Darya makes a difficult decision between her role as a recorder of life songs or death songs, she discovers where the two merge.

“VIM AND VIGOR” explores fandom, anxiety, and female friendship through Edie’s choice to use the Elucidation Protocol, a simulated reality technology that reveals the likely outcomes of difficult decisions.

In “ARMORED ONES,” Teka has one mission while working undercover with the Storyteller: kill Cyra Noavek. Akos, on the other hand, must prove his wit and mettle in a rite that will likely kill him.

“THE TRANSFORMATIONIST” delves into the psyche of Otho—a prisoner in jail for a crime he never intended to commit. His honest story is all it would take to release him, but he refuses to speak.

This collection has something for new and old fans alike. Divergent’s globally bestselling author, Veronica Roth, weaves tales that begin with a hope for a better end, but always end with a better understanding of the beginning.
