- - -So I am a little late to the bandwagon, but I just read Divergent by Veronica Roth this past week. It was a very quick and thrilling read (although I did have small issues with the world-building). Those gripes gripes aside, words cannot describe how much I am looking forward to Insurgent! It is the sequel to Divergent, which had quite a cliffhanger ending (the good kind). Also, I am SO looking forward to finding more about the factions of Candor and Amity.
Here's the summary for Insurgent:
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.
And let's just "ohhh" and "ahhh" over the cover, shall we? Yes. Also take a look at the TRAILER recently released for the book:
Yup. This is a book I am DEFINITELY looking forward to reading. No doubt about it. Check it out come May 1, 2012.
