Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature. -Goodreads-

My Thoughts:

I did it!!! I read the book that I was anticipating the most!  And boy did it live up to its standards and more!!    I knew this book was going to be so much better then the first, but I did not know that it was going to be that much better!  

Last weekend while I was at RT Teen Day in Chicago, I saw some of my great blogging friends.  It was so nice to finally catch up with them.  But then I spotted it a mile away!!!  My friend DJ had INSURGENT!!!  I couldn't believe it...  Then after some talking, :), he let me borrow it in exchange of me getting it signed when I meet Veronica in May!  Boy was I so happy!  I couldn't put it down!  I couldn't believe that I was going to be able to read the  ONE book that I could not wait to read.  And was it worth it!!!

Tris is back and ready for action!  But a lot as happened since the first time  we met her.  Her are Four are still together and waiting to see where their life is going to take them.  But little do they know, that what lies is going to bring them closer then ever!!!  Now I don't want to give too much away but I do want to tell you this...THIS BOOK IS SO WORTH IT!  And I just want you to know that this book is defiantly so far book of the year!!! I know it!  

Please, when this book comes out go and buy it!  You will not be disappointed.  This book has everything a book in this genre needs.  It as some of the greatest actions scenes so far, and just the right amount of romance in it.  Oh and please if you have read this book, go to page 301 and read it...this is the turning point for the book.  This part made a good book, one hell of a book.

My Rating:

I am giving this book 5 out 5 stars only because I can't give it like 1,000,000 stars out of 5...:)
