Insurgent by Veronica Roth
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.
After getting through Divergent so quickly had immediately got Insurgent for my Kindle. I am sooo glad I did! I found myself again reading late into the night and finishing this book in about two days. Tris goes through more life changing events in Insurgent. To me it seemed like she had a harder time dealing with her parents deaths they she expected to. Insurgent brings up a lot of important issues when it comes to war. Tris also has to deal with those closest to her bending the truth. This goes to show that no matter the faction everyone has secrets. Especially those you love and trust. No matter how perfect a society may seem there is bound to be conflict. It is human nature. Tris had to decide where her loyalties are and sometimes it is against those you love.
Tris and Tobias are having some trouble with their relationship through Insurgent. Loyalties and trustworthiness are tested. Tris came into her own person in Insurgent. Even to the point where it scared her. I felt the same way Tobias did in that regard. She was continually throwing her life into dangerous situations. I was like NO! Stop doing stupid things!!! I felt for Tobias, he was really worried about her. It will be interesting to see where things go from here.
The ending was definitely a cliffhanger! Some major information was released at the end of the book and things are about to change forever. So many questions are in my head and I need answers! So book 3 can come out any time now!!!
