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.
First off, let me just say, this is going to be a rave review because I absolutely loved this book! It was fantastic! And hopefully I'll be able to tell you all the reasons why I think this book is phenomenal.
This book is the sequel to Divergent, and it is the second in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I really liked Divergent. I think it is one of the best books I have read. A wonderful dystopian, action, romance, and suspense novel, it brings about so many emotions in just one book. It blows my mind. So I wasn't really expecting this book to be so overwhelmingly amazing. But it was, oh boy, it was.
The story follows Tris, and Tris is dealing with a whole lot, as you know after reading Divergent. The five factions have now split apart, and the world is now a place of segregation, disagreement, and danger.
Tris is thrown into situations that are completely terrible and horrible, and she deals with things that no one would want to deal with. But all this makes her a better person, a better friend, and a better character. There is so much character development in this book, its so wonderful. Friend is turned against friend, enemies are confronted, and trust is broken. This book is in every way, an epic novel.
Overall, I loved this book. The plot, the writing, the characters, were all amazing in this wonderful action packed, dystopian book.
Five out of Five stars.
