Returning to Dystopian Chicago, immediately where Divergent left off, Tris is fighting for her faction, and her life. Unrest is prominent in the factions, and things are not quite what they seem. After Tris completes initiation and becomes a member of Dauntless, she is unable to even celebrate before all hell breaks loose in their compound.
An entire faction is under fire, and decimated. Secrets emerge. Tris still fights against the grief and guilt from incidents in Divergent, but must put them on the backburner to deal with more pressing concerns, like whether she will survive each day, how her family will fare, and what to do about her budding romance.
Yet another fantastic novel from Veronica Roth. I love that there was no time lost between Divergent and Insurgent. It picks up exactly where Divergent left off. The story line continues flawlessly, and it’s even more action packed than the first. If I had to choose, I would say this one was better than the first, and definitely didn’t fall in to that group of novels who’s sequel suffers from the ‘Sophomore Slump’. I can’t wait for the release of Allegiant!
