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.
Cruelty does not make a person dishonest, the same way bravery does not make a person kind.
People, I have discovered, are layers and layers of secrets. You believe you know them, that you understand them, but their motives are always hidden from you, buried in their own hearts. You will never know them, but sometimes you decide to trust them.
Insurgent, he says. Noun. A person who acts in opposition to the established authority, who is not necessarily regarded as a belligerent.
Okay, so this second book was fantastic! It was a great installment to the trilogy. Veronica Roth is amazing at what she does. She definitely knows how to make her readers have the ride of their life. This book was definitely one of those roller coaster rides. I’m not disappointed at all.
I’m not going to do any spoilers in case there are some people still out there who haven’t read the second book yet. But just know that if you loved Divergent, you need to read the second book! You learn more about the factions and the factionless! Plus, you learn more about both Tris and Four/Tobias’ lives.
I fell in love with Tris and Tobias even more than I already was. Plus, the rest of the characters are great too. Then there is the ending. The ending that totally leaves you hanging and needing to read the third and final book. It’s been half a year since I read Insurgent and it has been over a year since Allegiant has come out and I haven’t read Allegiant yet. Why? [Possible Spoiler]: I’m scared. I already know what is going to happen (my boyfriend spoiled it for me thinking I already read it) and I really don’t want it to happen. So, I haven’t read it yet. But I’m going to have to read it before the third movie comes out. So, I guess my happiness is going to be squashed.
Anyways, if you’re a fan of Veronica Roth and/or Divergent. Read this book, if you haven’t already that is. 🙂
