Book Review - Insurgent

It's been a little while since my last post, hopefully you're all still keeping tabs on me :)

I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things and see if we can't get you all some more great book ideas! By now you've probably all read Divergent, the amazing novel by Veronica Roth. If you haven't read it, I strongly suggest you get your hands on it, both for the intriguing story and because it's the first book in the series. Don't worry, I'll keep this review spoiler free!

At the end of the previous novel, Tris found herself in a bit of a predicament. Not only was the city under duress from a particular faction, but she was in the midst of what some might call a family crisis. Insurgent is the first step towards a solution to the problem created in Divergent. At this point, the factions are becoming increasingly divided. Tris and Tobias are on the run with enemies right on their heels. As their hopes for a safe haven and a solution continue to dwindle, Tobias springs a surprise on Tris. There is someone they can go to, someone who can help. And most importantly, someone who can fight.

Tensions rise and the factions throw everything they've got at the problem. But behind the scenes, Tris is on a secret mission.. A crucial piece of information that could change their world and everything they know about it. The mission, is for Marcus, Tobias' father.

This was a great read, I thoroughly enjoyed it. For those of you enjoying this series as much as I am, I think we'll be seeing some more of Tris and Tobias in the near future! Whether it's on the big screen or in book number 3, the Divergent series is one to watch.
