Did I enjoy this book: I actually think I like it better than the first book (you can see our staff reviews of Divergent HERE, HERE, and HERE). I suppose I got a bit tired of Tris’s depression, and there were a few last minute rescues that were just a *bit* too convenient to be exactly believable, but it was a good read and  a great second installment. I’m going to start Allegiant just as soon as I can!


Would I recommend it: Yep. If you liked the first book in the series, just keep on reading, friends!


About the book – from Goodreads: 
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.
