Waiting on Wednesday: Divergent #2: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

"Waiting on Wednesday" is weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases we're excited for. I always love reading the WoW posts from other bloggers and this is the first week I'm participating myself - please be nice ;)

For this post I've chosen Insurgent by Veronica Roth, the second title in the Divergent series. Divergent (see my review here) is one of my favourite books of 2011; a surprisingly original Dystopian novel that is engaging from start to finish. And so of course I can not wait to read what happens next, even if the release is still well over six months away!

Details: Expected to be published May 28th 2012 by HarperCollins, 496 pages.

Description: 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.

  11. Roth opens up a new world where war had caused a system to emerge that seemed flawless then corruption set in as it always does with humans. She takes you through the story as a young Abnegation girl getting ready for her choosing ceromony for what faction she wants to be in and the rest goes on to all the obsiticals that face the heroin. This book sucked me in from chapter one and I strongly feel that it is a must read of anyone who enjoys a good adventure, some romance, and the underdog coming out on top.
