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 Thuvhe, 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. 


Why I'm excited for this book:

A new book from Veronica Roth! This looks like such a cool book, and it looks like A oath also drew inspiration from the Middle East for it as well which also adds to the cool factor. It looks like this is going to be a dark science fiction/fantasy book where the stakes are higher than risk. While I must admit I didn't like Allegiant, I do like Roth's writing style and I'm sure this is going to turn out to be an amazing book. I have so many questions above it this world and I am looking forward to reading this!
