Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)

Rating: 5/5

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.

In Insurgent the chemistry between Tris and Four is not as good as in the first book. As expected in Insurgent the plot gets more and more complicated by every page turned. This leads the characters to hide secrets from one another and not trust each other. I was a little disappointed by this. I love Tris and Four together and witnessing their relationship shaken by all the events occurring in the book hurt. This doesn't mean Insurgent wasn't as good as Divergent. It was excellent in its own way.

Where Insurgent lacked in romance it compensated in action and twisted secrets that readers won't see coming
in a million years. I didn't know who Tris could trust. Reading Insurgent was definitely an adrenaline rush. At the end I was very satisfied. I waited 1 year for Insurgent and I'm glad that wait was not in vain. The ending of Insurgent was shocking. I have no idea what's going to happen in the third installment and I can't wait for its release!!
