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 reading the first book in the series, Divergent, and being blown off my feet, I was expecting no less from the sequel. I have one word for it…AMAZING!
The changes that this book is filled with and all the new information that one could never get enough of is what pulled me deeper and deeper into its pages. I wanted to keep reading and had dreams of it never ending but sadly it did.
I loved seeing the characters grow so much throughout this book that I barely recognized them from before. Being put up against new trials and new enemies, these characters are really in for it. With dangers increase throughout this book and finding information is no longer a safe thing. They are put to a test, and boy do they bring it. I just couldn’t stop I needed more.
Okay for the love interest. Everything is as you would it expected it be. They are put to the test that will challenge their love for one another but overall the happy moments where one would go “awww” it still happen.
Insurgent is an action pack novel that will leave the reader breathless. If you thought Divergent was worth reading, well put all your reading materials away, pick up this book, and be prepared for Veronica Roth to leave you only wanting more. Leaving you with a cliff hanger that will bring frustration of all levels to you, Insurgent is one that will take you on an adventure that will surely blow your mind away.
I give this book 5 souls!
