I like that Tris and his group of friends are slowly growing into their skills as they bond together as a group. The story has a good pace with action as well as story and character development.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It follows the same type of storyline. The main character is wronged and leads a group of friends to rise up and crush the ones that are abusing them. Plus, the main character is coming into his powers like Tris.
They are able to bring depth to all of the players in the story that I wouldn't have been able to do had I read the book.
This book is a sequel to THE SUMMONER.
The book itself keeps you intriged for the most part, however, you can skip some entire chapters without missing anything. The book seems to add chapters for clarification, but the author gets side-tracked frequently.
4/5 for a successful sequel but it continues in the same vain as the first book to the point of repetition.
