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.

The Short
Insurgent was AMAZING. I thought it was incredible, but it certainly differed to Divergent in a few areas. There was a darker undertone to Insurgent, as Tris struggled to come to terms with her previous losses and actions. Understandably, some people may not be as interested in this, however I loved the realism of it and furthermore, Tris' character development.

And of course, Tris and Four's relationship. It was a little rocky, but their bond continues to grow deeper and stronger.
*sidenote* Four is as sexy as ever.

The Long

The Good
Action-packed, more exploration of the city and factions, great character development, realistic romance progression, FOUR <3.

The Bad
... haha
