Deep in the Nevada desert is the most secure compound in the United States: Area 51. The most chilling experiment of all time is about to begin there. The president doesn't know about it. Just a few scientists and military personnel working for Majestic-12 do, and they are about to make a very big mistake.

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

Would you consider the audio edition of Divergent to be better than the print version?

I think the audio edition added to the story because of the awesome job of the narrator Emma Galvin. I only wish there were 3 or 4 more books written to continue the story!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Divergent?

All of it.

What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Emma Galvin brought the characters to life! She did a wonderful job!

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

This book was timeless and mysterious. I was hooked from chapter 2. When I finished I wanted a sequel, but could not find it. Hopefully the author will keep the story going, and going! I love the characters and the plot. I am waiting to find out where Dianna and Mathew takes us next!!
