{Synopsis} –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.

{My Thoughts} – This book left me in awe. I mean real awe. Tobias and Tris and their relationship is on the fritz. Caleb and Tris are learning the true meaning of Faction before Blood. Tris is still trying to work through the loss of her parents, Tobias is trying to learn how to accept his father being back in his life even if it isn’t a long term situation. We get to meet a lot of old characters and some new ones in this book. We also got to see what some of the main characters are really made up of and how well they can handle the situations that have been thrown at them. How well they can deal with the things that they are forced to deal with.

Tobias is a character that always wants to do what is right no matter what. He however always puts himself above others in some situations, it is how he has learned to survive. This is all a great part due to the turmoil his father had put him through as he was growing up. Tris acts and then thinks later. She has a lot of problems with thinking things through clearly. She may think she has thought it through but eventually she realized some of her choices could have used a lot more thought then what she had put towards them. Caleb is a whole different category. He thinks things through rationally and then acts on the best case scenario even if it means he has to hurt people that love him and or have cared for him in the present and past. I want to say there is hope for him but I am unsure at the current time.

I am always skeptical about reading the next book in a series when I fall in love with the very first book in the series. I must say I was not disappointed at all. This book was exactly perfect and I couldn’t have asked for more. It was well written, the story flowed seamlessly and I just all and all enjoyed every bit of it. I look forward to reading book three, well starting it as soon as I post this!
