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.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian DIVERGENT series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
Tris Prior is supposed to be celebrating her initiation into Dauntless; however, that is not the case. There are other nations, besides her own, to contend with. There is Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent).
A war is brewing among the nations over the issue of Divergent. Four and Tris must decide where they stand on the issue, or risk being caught in the whirlwind that comes with war.
Will Four and Tris’ attraction for each other survive what's to come with the threat of war looming above them? Who will go to war? Your answers await you in Insurgent.
I loved seeing the growth of Tris and Four's characters! Tris is a strong and determined person. The story continues to be compelling and intriguing. The characters continue to show depth, honesty, and fascination. Definitely looking forward to the next installment in the series.
