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’ 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.

    " Dystopian has been done to death now, but I want to see where Veronica Roth takes this. Comparisons to The Hunger Games are inevitable, but the different factions are realised extremely well. "

    " Can't wait for the third book!!!!! "

    " Not as good as Divergent - but enjoyed it enough to go on to the next. Love the Chicago references. "

    " Riveting! I could not put this book down... I love the progress that Tris has made in trusting people and accepting who she is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci | 1/23/2014

    " Favorite dystopian yet. Couldn't put it down last night. Read it over to cover in 1 night. Worth the yawning I've been doing today. Can't wait for the 3rd and final book coming out 10-22-13 :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 1/17/2014

    " Wow, this book totally blew my mind. This series has easily become my number one series. I just cannot describe my love for these books for there are no words in existence that even come close to my feelings of love towards Tris and Tobias, my hatred towards the Eritrude leaders, and my feelings to everything else. This series is one of the very few ones that I can honestly say that I can read this everyday till the end of time and still be swayed by the emotional trauma Tris goes through because I can easily relate. This is a definite read for all those who enjoyed Hunger Games, Eon, and Across the Universe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Caffrey | 1/11/2014

    " Fantastic dystopian series, doesn't dissapoint. Action, Rebellion, Love, fighting, bravery, etc. Awesome "

    " Sorry, but I just couldn't get through it. It REALLY lacked the qualities that Divergent had to keep people's attention. I don't think I'll read #3. "

    " I want a Tobias Eaton in my life!!! This second book of the Divergent Trilogy is full of truths, and revelations which cause trust issues between Tris and Tobias' relationship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E.A. | 12/20/2013

    " I didn't like this one as much as the first. I get really tried of teenage angst. I am curious to see what the third one will bring, but I am worried about it. "

    " Guilty pleasure. No literary quality, but fun. A necessary treat because I was also reading The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen. I didn't like this as much as Divergent though. A little disjointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kiwi | 9/6/2013

    " This book, without a doubt, lived to the high expectation set by the first book :) I feel sad that this series is only a trilogy, but I can guarantee that the third book with start off brilliantly based on how Insurgent ended "

    " Now, I love this more than Hunger Games. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Eriksson | 8/23/2013

    " This book is amazing! I love the fact that Four-Tris relationship develops without any interference of any other guy, just them, no jealous drama. And that ending... OMG. Totally unexpected. I loved it! Can't wait for the next one! And Veronica Roth is now my inspiration :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bree | 8/23/2012

    " Not as good as Divergent, I think because it takes a bit of getting in to. However, the ending is great. I can't wait for Allegiant to come out! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave N. | 8/12/2012

    " I loved Divergent and its unique story of a future dystopian society and after finishing it I awaited the follow-up with great anticipation. My patience was greatly rewarded as Insurgent is every bit as good as its predecessor and takes the story in a fascinating new direction. I won't say anything else about that as I hate spoilers but suffice to say I'm now itching to get my hands on the 3rd book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 S.K. | 7/30/2012

    " I really liked the first book and expected to feel the same about this one. Sadly I was sorely disappointed. The beginning of the book just drags and takes what feels like forever to get going. Also I didn't care for the new direction that the author has taken with the main character Tris. I hate to see a series that started off so well run out of steam so quickly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Art Franklin | 7/10/2012

    " I liked this audiobook for the most part but it wasn't nearly as engaging as the first novel. It still made for a pleasant weekend diversion though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crushed Red Velvet | 7/4/2012

    " This series is so addicting, and now I have to wait until October for the third book >_< "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.C. | 6/29/2012

    " With Insurgent Veronica Roth's dystopian vision picks up where the previous book left off and capably takes things in exciting new directions. Although it takes a little while in the beginning to pick up steam once it does it excels in its engagement of the reader. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric W. | 6/13/2012

    " I thought that this was one of the most exciting books I've read all year. Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.H. | 5/22/2012

    " Very enjoyable and continues the series quite nicely. Some will compare it to The Hunger Games but it's quite different while being just as exciting as that series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jasper Ng | 5/22/2012

    " Genuine page-turner. I love the smooth storytelling amidst the complexity of the plot. Can't wait for the third book to come out! "
