    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.

    Story

    I'll admit it, I didn’t know how this would go. Would the author be able to keep up the pace of the last book?

    My doubts are laid to rest! This was just as fast and intense as the first book! This is a very strong second installment. If you liked ‘Divergent’ you’re going to be a very happy reader!

    It’s not just the action that moves the story, either. Tris and Tobias are becoming more and more complex as characters. You could say that one becomes visibly more divergent, while the other almost seems to become less. All the characters start out bruised and battered, and there isn’t time for physical or emotional healing. Amidst the action and chaos, we watch as Tris uncovers “layers upon layers” of the people around her. Inner strengths, secrets, and betrayals lie waiting in unexpected places.

    You get to see more of the city in this book, and get to know a little more about what goes on in different factions, which I really enjoyed. The whole concept of factions is so unique that it was exciting to check out the inner workings of those beside Dauntless and Abnegation!

    ‘Insurgent’ also filled in some places I had wrongly thought were weak points in the overall storyline. Not all my questions are answered yet, but it’s obvious now that the author does have a big picture clearly in mind! We'll have to wait until next year to see how things end, but now I have even more faith that it'll be worth the wait.

    Emma Galvin narrates beautifully. She truly gives Tris her voice. I can’t imagine anyone doing it better.

    Overall this was wild, intense, and often surprising. Seriously, for anyone reading this who likes action, YA, and dystopia who *hasn’t* started this series yet… Be dauntless. Just jump in!
