It’s been recently published, so no spoilers. I’ll come back and update it in a few months with specifics for anyone who’s interested. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth definitely earned a 5 out of 5 with me. I enjoyed the Divergent trilogy, but found the writing just okay. The ending of Allegiant I won’t bother getting into with this post because there’s just so much that could be said. The writing in Carve the Mark showed definite improvement. I wasn’t distracted from the story, it flowed cleanly between the different viewpoints.
