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.

As soon as I finished Divergent I had to pick up Insurgent. It continues exactly where the first book left off.

Tris changes a lot, throughout this book. It was interesting to see how she changed and when she decided to fight. A lot happens in this book and I’m trying not to give it away with this review.

Four changes too, but not necessarily for the better. His feelings clouded his judgements on occasions. He should have known better in certain circumstances and he trusted to easily because of his past.

This book has so many twists and turns I wasn’t very good at guessing what would happen next. I was constantly shocked throughout the book. I am very intrigued where the last book will go.
