Like a lot of middle books, this one wasn't quite as good as the first, but informative and set up the scene (at least I think) for the last book. I am happy though that she added a little of personal conflict with the main character so that you could relate with her even that much more. Not a lot of people go through scenarios like Tris does in the book. War and such. But everyone has personal conflicts with family, friends and relationships. So it was nice to see the complexity of a personal life continuing even through this massive community wide conflict. I am really excited to continue reading and find out what happens in the last book as well as other books that this author has written.
Amazon: 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.
