INSURGENT by Veronica Roth (Kindle Edition)

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.

I finished DIVERGENT yesterday and immediately continued with INSURGENT. The second book of the dystopian Divergent series was great and just like the first book, it was hard to put down. I devoured it over the weekend. I'm glad the book picks up exactly where Divergent ended and the author wastes no time in moving the plot into full swing. Lots of action, more blood bath, and more hard choices. I'm going to jump straight into the third book ALLEGIANT! Updated: I'm not too sure I'd continue reading the third book after reading all the negative reviews about it. It may seem that it's best I let the wonderful impressions from the first two books stay with me than to have the third book "kill" the good stuff. I'll ponder and decide later if I want to risk it.

Have you read the Divergent series? What are your thoughts?
