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.

So i cant really say too much about this book because i don't want to spoil the first one for those very few who haven't read it.
I will just skip to my opinions..
I was quite disappointed with this book, it seemed to me to be a filler book (a book that is necessary to take the story line into the next book). No questions were answered it only created more, and i feel like we should have got at least some answers.
Also there was still no real back story. I want to know how and why their society is like this, and although they did touch on it at the end it just wasn't enough for me.
It was just kind of bland and i had little motivation while reading it.
Things did happen in this book but it wasn't the gripping story line we got in Divergent.
Oh and the romance fell extremely flat for me, it was pretty much non-existent, like it was hardly a focus at all and i was hoping to see things blossom a little more. If you know what i mean ;)
Overall pretty disappointed, hopefully the next book can pull it together and rescue this series for me.

Three stars
