"Roth offers a richly imagined, often-brutal world of political intrigue and adventure, with a slow-burning romance at its core."--Booklist
"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
"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
"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
"This duology offers shades of George Lucas sprawl and influence, Game of Thrones clan intrigue, and a little Romeo & Juliet-style romance."--USA Today
"Roth's stories are compelling, emotionally evocative, and satisfying. Riveting."--Kirkus Reviews
