Insurgent (Divergent) by Veronica Roth



Insurgent, is the second book in the, Divergent Trilogy. You absolutely, must read, Divergent before reading this book or you will be lost. It does not stand on it's own.

It picks up right where, Divergent left off, which is excellent since gaps can be a bit annoying. There is tons of character development and story building. More action. Yes, more action! There is a lot that happens in this book and I don't want to give anything away! There is a huge, huge, climatic revelation. Your jaw will drop and you will be left in anticipation of what is to happen next. There are tons of twists and turns!

Tris and Four have quite a bit to deal with in this book. Things are messy, chaotic and each character has to fight there inner demons and guilt in order to move on. There are secrets that lay beneath the surface, that when emerge can destroy relationships.

This is an amazing sequel. I only wish, I didn't have to wait another year to see what transpires.

Grade: A+


Overview [B&N]

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
