worthy sequel

First there was DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth, a stunning debut novel about a dystopic society where people live in factions: Candor, Amity, Erudite, Abnegation, and Dauntless. Roth takes the story to its next phase in INSURGENT (HarperCollins 2012). Many times a second book in a trilogy is rather a let down. I am pleased to say that is NOT the case for INSURGENT (though the ending will leave readers screaming for the third book NOW). Tris and Four are both Divergent, humans who show talents in more than one faction. because of their abilities, they are both valued and feared. As a ressult, Tris does not know who she can truly trust, even Four, her romantic interest, might be compromised. This story of betrayal, of battle, and of belonging is a perfect accompaniment to DIVERGENT. <254>
