Bestselling Divergent and Carve the Mark author Veronica Roth delivers a stunning collection of novella-length stories set in the future, illustrated with startling black-and-white artwork.

No world is like the other. Within this masterful collection, each setting is more strange and wonderful than the last, brimming with new technologies and beings. And yet, for all the advances in these futuristic lands, the people still must confront deeply human problems.

In these six stories, Veronica Roth reaches into the unknown and draws forth something startlingly familiar and profoundly beautiful.

With tales of friendship and revenge, plus two new stories from the Carve the Mark universe, this collection has something for new and old fans alike. Each story begins with a hope for a better end, but always end with a better understanding of the beginning.

With beautifully intricate black-and-white interior illustrations and a uniquely designed package, this is the perfect gift for book lovers. (Goodreads)

It’s been too long since I last read a book by Veronica Roth, so when I discovered The End and Other Beginnings, a collection of short, futuristic stories, I knew I would have to check it out.

The End and Other Beginnings has six stories, all with different characters, and interesting futuristic storylines. Two of the stories are set in the Carve the Mark universe, which is a series I have not yet tackled, yet I am now super curious to check out. All of the stories were interesting, and definitely futuristic, which was pretty cool. (I think the first story in the book was definitely my favorite.)

Though I had an e-arc of the book, I decided to listen to the audiobook, which is narrated by Emily Rankin and MacLeod Andrews, who did a fantastic job telling the story. Though I definitely will be going back to check out the book soon, as I hear it has some pretty awesome illustrations as well.

Overall; reading The End and Other Beginnings was a really interesting read, and has definitely made me curious to pick up more by Veronica soon! As I mentioned above I have yet to tackle the Carve the Mark series, so I definitely plan to read that soon. I am also excited to check out her newest book, Chosen Ones, which just recently released, as well!
