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 best-selling 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.

I was expecting a disappointing sequel as I read some reviews before getting into this novel. Many, as I was, annoyed with the high school like relationship between the protagonists, but this story is so much more than that element. It actually makes the first novel just seem like an appetizer to the real "meat and potatoes" of the story.
There are excellent twists that fit the plot well. The characters are developed further, but I became confused who to cheer for throughout the novel. Not predictable, and I applaud the author for that.
I did not think there would be enough momentum for me to read the third novel in the series, but I am pleasantly surprised. Buying allegiance now...
This was a fun book to listen to during a long road trip. Complete with a lot of action and adventure, Roth does a great job keeping you hooked all the way through. Looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy.
It took me so long to get into this book. Months really of starting and stopping. It picks up the last 4 hours of it though. Haven't heard the greatest reviews about The next book either. Up in the air as to if I will read it.
I will admit that it took me a while to get into this story. I listened to the first hour and a half or so and then dropped it because nothing had happened to grab me. Picked it back up about a month later on a long car ride. Was a good story to pass the time in the car and by the time the trip was over I was hooked!
