Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)Insurgent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Insurgent picked up right where Divergent left off. In the continuing story of Tris and Four, as they deal with a chaotic society at war with itself, they struggle to understand and accept each other, and navigate their way through the challenges of guilt, forgiveness and trust needed to move forward. Veronica Roth gives us a sequel that is fast paced and compelling. Friendship, love and betrayal are mixed up in a jumble of relationships torn apart and thrust together by the war that has broken out among the factions. Struggling with the shock and trauma of watching her parents die and overwhelming guilt from shooting a close friend, Tris decides to sacrifice herself to save the others, and comes face to face with the cold calculating leader that started all the strife, Jeannine, and the author doesn't disappoint, showing us Tris' inner strength. Tris depends on her intuition, making alliances that seem to defy logic. The story includes shocking betrayals and surprising moments of kindness and charity. Once again, I am usually frustrated by books in a series where the ending is left somewhat unfinished, creating the interest for the third book, and although Insurgent gives an interesting ending, it clearly leaves a big question mark too, requiring us to read the third book for resolution. I did enjoy the book and would recommend it.
