Insurgent by Veronica Roth {Divergent #2}

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. {Synopsis taken from Goodreads}

My thoughts:

Wow! Just holy freaking wow! I absolutely loved this amazing book. I was extremely skeptical because of all the reviews I had seen and thought it wouldn't live up to the first book. It. completely. did.

So many sophomore books don't live up to the first book but this was just not the case with Insurgent.  Veronica Roth's writing style is still amazing. I just devoured this book and loved the fact that it was over 500 pages. I could just keep reading and loving Tris and Four.  One of my worries was that the romance I enjoyed so much in Divergent wouldn't be present in this book, it was even better!  Tris and Four are definitely developing their relationship and it's growing to be more and I love being a  part of it. 

The only thing honestly that bugged me about this book was Tris.  I realize that she has just lost both of her parents so she's allowed to fall apart but she drove me a little crazy in this book but it worked really well.  Roth was able to tie up the broken Tris and make it a pretty amazing story.

Their are so many "holy oh my gosh's" in this book, some I just was not expecting and I just loved that.  I enjoy being shocked by a story and Insurgent definitely did this, especially the ending. Wow! What a cliffhanger. I just was not expecting that! 

I absolutely cannot wait to read the third book of Veronica Roth's.  She herself is evolving as an author and I'm just so happy to be reading her wonderful books.  Her next book cannot come out soon enough.

I give it 5 big fabulous rainbows!
