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.
This is the follow-up novel to Divergent. I liked it. But I like Divergent a little better. It continues exactly where the first left off. You find out more as to why the takeover has happened. Everyone is on edge the entire book. It's not dull by any means, but I don't believe I would read it again. The one thing that irked me was the "I'll die without your love" thing. It just seems a little much for a couple who wasn't together THAT long and therefore it is cheesy to me. I look forward to the last in the series to see how it wraps up. To see how the information that is learned in this book unfolds. If you liked divergent read this. It will leave you ready for the next.
