"Insurgent" by Veronica Roth - A Book Review


    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you.
    But every choice has its 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' 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.

    Wow, wow, WOW! Insurgent by Veronica Roth, book to in the Divergent Series, was AMAZING! It was full of amazing twists and turns that I didn't expect, emotional, physical, and mental turmoil on the main character's, Tris', part. The second installment is action-packed and will draw you in from the start.
    Contained within its pages is mystery, adventure, and romance.
    Tris is constantly having to make choices that will affect her future, and the future of her friends and family. Throughout the book, she is struggling with loss of one of her best friends, the deaths of her parents, and the betrayal of a family member. She also has to balance her relationship with her mentor, and boyfriend (two years, her senior).
    There are constant struggles of ethics as Tris has to decide what is right and what is wrong.
    There is mild language use; "h*ll" is used a few times, as is "s*cks"; a fictional insult, "Stiff" is used for the members of the Abnegation faction.
    Tobias and Tris kiss multiple times, as well as lay on Tobias' bed together, though they go no further than kissing and hugging. Tris has a constant battle and fear with this throughout books one and two.
    Violence is mild. Multiple people are either shot, or stabbed. A faction is mind controlled, though they are not aware until afterwards.
    All things considered, this book was simply amazing and my only regret is that I must now what a year for book three!

5 of 5 stars.

God bless,
