Veronica Roth is releasing a Four-focussed short story We Can be Mended as a part of promotions for her upcoming book Carve the Mark. Find out how to get your copy!
Initiates, I know the whole Ascendant TV movie situation is creating some uncertainty (though, I feel optimistic that it’ll work out… read more HERE); however, today, Veronica Roth gave the fandom a massive reason to celebrate.
Earlier this year, Queen V announced her new science-fiction fantasy series, starting with Carve the Mark, coming January 17, 2017.
It’s great news to hear we’re getting something new from Veronica, but Divergent will always have pride of place in my heart.
So to get fans even more excited, today she announced that she’ll be releasing a never-before-seen epilogue to Allegiant called We Can be Mended! Anyone who pre-orders a Carve the Mark will receive an exclusive copy of We Can be Mended, too.
We Can Be Mended takes place five years after Allegiant, and tells us what Four has been up to.
Are you flailing yet?!
If you’re a resident of the U.S. or Canada, to get your copy of the short-story:
First, pre-order Carve the Mark online or at your local bookstore or purchase it the first day of on sale (January 17, 2017).
Next, upload a photo or screenshot of your receipt and submit the information to CarveTheMarkBooks.com. You must do this by January 17, 2017.
(***According to Epic Reads, this campaign has been offered to all Carve the Mark translation publishers globally. Once they have details for non-U.S./Canada publishers, they’ll post the information HERE. Otherwise, check with your local translation publisher.)
Then, a mini-book containing We Can be Mended will be mailed to you AFTER January 17, 2017.

I’m so excited to hear from Four, but I’m also nervous too. I want him to be happy, truly… but if Tobias has a girlfriend that’s not Tris? What do we do?
Regardless, pre-order Carve the Mark right now so you can get We Can be Mended ASAP. I know I will!
For more information about Carve the Mark, check out the book trailer and summary:
On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored 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.
