Divergent Series by Veronica Roth

Anyone heard of the Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth? It’s only the most popular, most anticipated movie to come out this year. There’s two books in the trilogy currently, Divergent and Insurgent, with another coming out October 22, 2013 to be named Allegiant.

The series follows sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior who lives in a society where people are divided into factions. There’s Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the peaceful), Candor (the honest), Dauntless (the brave) and Erudite (the intelligent). When Beatrice takes the aptitude test, she finds she doesn’t fit into just one faction, but three (Abnegation, Erudite, and Dauntless). She is called a Divergent and to never tell  anyone. When Choosing Day comes around, Beatrice must leave her dull life in Abnegation and Beatrice decides to join the Dauntless. Nicknaming herself Tris, Beatrice tries to fit in and survive the hardcore, dangerous initiation of a Dauntless initiate. Tris must push herself to place higher in the ranks of initiates so she doesn’t get cut before being named a full-fledged member. Along the way, she must keep her secret hidden even from the boy she falls in love with. Tensions heighten between the factions, and Tris sees what being divergent really means.

The divergent trilogy is one of the best apocalyptic series out there right now. I love the action scenes that Tris and the Dauntless bring to the book. It keeps the reader begging for more but also worrying for Tris’s safety. The relationship between Tris and Four is unstable but sweet nonetheless. Despite all the obstacles, their love survives. Likewise, the enemy faction  in the book definitely threatens the main characters of the book, but Roth creates an amazing ending filled with loss and love.

Anyone who likes the Divergent Trilogy would like the Matched trilogy and the Hunger Games trilogy.
