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.


There's never a dull moment...Tris finds a way to to conquer her fears through her initiation but has she conquered her fears when it comes to the Truth Serum? Four or now known as Tobias has secrets, ones he wishes for no one to know yet it seems Tris finds her way under his skin slowly but surely.

When Tris discovers the urgent need to follow her instincts -- stopping her is not an option.  She must find a way to hide her fears of the unknown and take a leap of faith even if it means her life.  Four's responsibility just multiplied and now he must lead a group of fall outs into the outside world.  Taking refuge in another district in order to try and stay alive.

There's no stopping what's coming, there's no turning back... By now those that follow both Four and Tris know what they must do to fight the battle before them.  When I finally started this book there was no way I could put it down, action around every corner and more questions than I can even find answers for.  By the time I finished the last sentence I had to move on to Allegiant for the hanger at the end...well let's just say that for those of you that have put down book 2 not wanting to move on to book 3 -- I couldn't do it!
