About the Author

VERONICA ROTH is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Divergent series (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four: A Divergent Collection) and the Carve the Mark duology (Carve the Mark, The Fates Divide). Divergent received the 2011 Goodreads Choice Award for Favorite Book, Publishers Weekly's Best Book of 2011, and was the winner of the YALSA 2012 Teens' Top Ten. The trilogy has been adapted into a blockbuster movie series starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James. Carve the Mark published in January 2017, debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, and remained on the list for eighteen weeks. The Fates Divide, the second installment of the Carve the Mark series, also debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.

Though she was born in Mount Kisco, New York, Veronica's family moved to Hong Kong and Germany before settling in Barrington, Illinois. In elementary school, Veronica read constantly, but it wasn't until she got a "make your own book!" kit from her mother as a gift that she thought to write anything of her own. From that time on, she knew she would write for the rest of her life, whether she was published or not. She wrote the manuscript that would become Divergent in her free time while attending Northwestern University, where she graduated magna cum laude with a degree in English Literature with Creative Writing in 2010.

She is a board member of YALLFest, the biggest YA book festival in the country, and YALLWEST, its sister festival. She currently lives in Chicago with her husband and their dog, Avi, whose adorable existence is well-documented on Instagram.

Reviews

Praise for The Fates Divide "The expansive world Roth introduced in the series opener gets even bigger in this sequel, with a bevy of additional characters, deepened secrets, and complex interplanetary politics."--Booklist Online
"The Fates Divide features themes like hope and resilience and is told from four perspectives, as the lives of its two heroes are ruled by their fates spoken by the oracles at their births. Of course, a little romance gets in the way as well."--Entertainment Weekly
"Brimming with plot twists and highly likely to please Roth's fans."--Kirkus Reviews
"Roth's worldbuilding is commendable; each nation is distinct, interacting with the current in ways that give insight into her characters' motivations. Roth thoughtfully addresses substantial issues, such as the power of self-determination in the face of fate."--Publishers Weekly
"If you enjoyed Carve the Mark and this intricate world that Veronica Roth created, you'll definitely be a fan of The Fates Divide. This sequel...[gives] the reader a closer look while also setting parts of what we thought we knew about the world and the characters aflame."--Hypable
Praise for Carve the Mark "Roth skillfully weaves the careful world-building and intricate web of characters that distinguished Divergent, with settings that are rich with color, ripe for a cinematographer. Readers will be anxiously awaiting the sequel."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review)
"Roth offers a richly imagined, often-brutal world of political intrigue and adventure, with a slow-burning romance at its core."--Booklist
"This duology offers shades of George Lucas sprawl and influence, Game of Thrones clan intrigue, and a little Romeo & Juliet-style romance."--USA Today
"In these stories, Roth invokes romance, action, family, revenge, and loss. They serve as an introduction to Roth's work and a showcase of her versatility, though existing fans will get the most out of these offerings."--Publishers Weekly
"Roth's stories are compelling, emotionally evocative, and satisfying. Riveting."--Kirkus Reviews
"Roth is a remarkable storyteller. Her latest offering is yet another testament to her incredible talent--and a definite must-read."--Courtney Summers, New York Times bestselling author of Sadie
"Each story in Roth's timeless collection--like all great science fiction--is about humanity, how technology can transform our relationships with each other, how it can highlight love and joy and grief, and the delicate web of all that makes us human."--Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Warcross Series
"A marvel of genre dexterity. From world to word and character to character, Roth displays her signature hand for world building, and, above all, compassion for people at ends and beginnings."--Somaiya Daud, author of Mirage
"Roth once again challenges readers' imaginations with her divergent thinking. These delicately crafted slices of future life are filled with characters you truly care about, in situations that bend your mind in all the right ways!"--Neal Shusterman, author of Challenge Deep and Scythe
"Each story here is its own unforgettable constellation of imagination and aching humanity. They will burn bright in your heart for years to come."--Alexandra Bracken, author of The Darkest Minds
