Fans of Veronica Roth’s first title, Divergent will certainly enjoy its sequel Insurgent! I had been anxiously awaiting the release of this book to find out what becomes of Tris and Tobias.
Divergent ended on initiation day for Beatrice “Tris” Prior. Initiation Day should have been filled with celebration and jubilation; instead it was filled with overwhelming suffering and confusion. Tris witnessed her parents’ deaths, was forced to murder a beloved friend Will who was following commands to kill her and others, and watched her Dauntless friends betray everything she knew about them..
Insurgent continues with the end of initiation day. Tris and Tobias as well as Marcus, Tobias’s father and Caleb, Tris’s brother are making their way to Amity with the hopes of recovering from the horrors they have witnessed. Tris is filled with overwhelming grief. Her emotions are in free fall.
War looms as the factions face off over what has just happened. Who does one trust? Can Tris ever fully believe in Dauntless as she remembers how her fellow initiates just turned on her? Erudite seem to be the least trustworthy. Is anyone left from Abnegation? Will Candor rise to help battle the foes? What about the faction less? Who will lead them? Will they play a prominent role? Read this dystopian sequel to find out.
