Page turner

Sequel to Divergent. Another page turner! Exciting, action packed, dystopian society . . . leaves you needing the 3rd book in the series, Allegiant.

Who is telling the truth?

What is the secret people are willing to die for? Who is telling the truth? Who will come out the winner in the rebellion? Read and find out!

Divergents and Factionless

This book takes of right were Divergent left off.  A battle of factions in this dystopian society leaves characters deciding on how to choose sides and what to do now.

There's not much of a recap, so if it's been awhile since you read the first book, it might seem a bit confusing at first.  In this second book of Roth's trilogy we learn more about the Divergent (people with the traits of multiple factions) and about the Factionless - those who belong to no faction.  They move from the background into prime-player status. (Roth also focuses a bit more on the Candor and Amity factions.)

This book is darker than Divergent. Tris deals with guilt, grief and betrayal while sorting out what needs to be done. There's a secret. Should it be kept or revealed?  There's a nice cliffhanger at the end. Good, face-paced read.
