Calling all fans of Veronica Roth!
The trailer gives us hints that it’s possible that in the world of this new series, certain people have special abilities and whether those abilites are used for good or evil is something we, the audience, will have to find out when we read the book. The color scheme throughout the 1 minute trailer alternates between blue and red (a possible foreshadowing to a fight between good and evil, fire and ice/water or maybe it foreshadows an internal conflict with one of the main characters.)
The trailer is narrated by a female voice, presumably Cyra, who is one of the two leading characters in the duology. in her narration, she talks about a current that runs through everyone which gives them their gifts, but while some abilities benefit the beholder, others have their abilities exploited by others. “The current gives him his armor, but it’s my curse,” is the last sentence spoken in the trailer which, sums up Cyra’s dilemma with her gift being exploited by her brother who is the brutal tyrant of the Shotet people and uses her gift to torture his enemies.
Take a look at the trailer below and see for yourself.
