Carve the Mark follows the life of Akos, who is kidnapped with his brother on a planet ruled by dictatorship. Everyone in the planet seems to be favored by fate and powers meant to shape the future but Akos and Cyra are unfortunate. Their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control.

The brutal tyrant ruling the Shotet people is a brother to Cyra. He manipulates Cyra’s ‘currentgift’ that gives her pain and power and uses her to exploit and 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.

Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

The Lost City of the Monkey God: A True Story

The Lost City of the Monkey God book cover

The book is written by Douglas Preston, and published on 3rd January, 2017 by Grand Central Publishing.

It is 336 pages long, measures 6.4 x 1.1 x 9.4 inches and weighs at 1.8 pounds.

It’s a true story based on American history but is full drama and suspense.

This novel is the absolutely true, eyewitness account of one of the great discoveries of the twenty-first century made by Douglas Preston alongside some scientists. The Lost City is believed to have a lot of wealth hidden in it but anyone who goes to explore it would fall ill and die. This assumption could have been right because in 1940, journalist Theodore Morde returned from the rainforest with hundreds of artifacts and an electrifying story of having found the Lost City of the Monkey God-but then committed suicide without revealing its location.

In 2012, Douglas joined a group of scientists who went to explore the city. Venturing into this raw, treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful wilderness to confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quick mud, disease-carrying insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. But it wasn’t until they returned that tragedy struck: Preston and others found they had contracted in the ruins a horrifying, sometimes lethal-and incurable-disease.
