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.Divergent left off with the notion of a rapid war that will eventually affect all factions. There is no time to waste. Tris and her gang find solace for a while in the Amity headquarters, but peace can’t last with war on their doorstep. Choices and sides need to be decided. It comes down to believing in the truth or doing what’s right. Tris has to make a choice or she will lose everyone she loves. Insurgent is a fast-paced, emotional roller coaster filled with adventures you don’t want to forget and keep thinking about long after you put it back on your bookshelf.
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.--Goodreads
Sequels usually start with a little catch-up but Veronica Roth dived into Insurgent like it was real life. There was no slowing down, no back story and I liked it better that way. That made the plot even more interesting, when there was loads of action in the beginning. However, for those of you who’ve read Divergent a while ago, I do suggest that you might want to read the last few chapters before falling into Insurgent.
“I wake with his name in my mouth.”-Insurgent by Veronica Roth, p. 1
Rated PG-13 for nonstop action, steamy scenes, heartbreaking emotions, blood and gore, and violence.
