Veronica Roth

A two-times winner of the Goodreads Choice Award, Veronica Roth is the author of the bestselling Divergent series - the young adult books that inspired the hit films starring Shailene Woodley as Tris Prior and Theo James as Tobias (Four) Eaton. Born on 19 August, 1988 in New York, Veronica was raised in Barrington, Chicago - the city in which the events of Divergent take place - and was the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors.

After the success of the Divergent trilogy, Veronica wrote a number of short stories from Four’s point of view, rather than the initial protagonist Beatrice Prior. Inspired by the likes of Ender’s Game and Animal Farm, Veronica also enjoys cooking, poetry and studying biology and poetry.

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.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favoured 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.
