Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth

The author of Divergent has come out with a new series, Carve the Mark being the first. It is happily different from Divergent, though just as riveting! It is a mix of fantasy and science fiction, set in a galaxy different from our own. The planets are powered by the current, and each person has a gift, and some a fate. While there are many versions of the future, there is no escaping your fate.
