Insurgent is 23-year-old Veronica Roth’s sequel to the quick-selling Divergent. It seems like it would be tough to compete with her debut bestseller, but luckily Roth doesn’t disappoint. Insurgent picks up immediately where its predecessor left off, and whether you are a lover of dystopian novels or feel completely over the genre after the heat of The Hunger Games, there is no mistake, Roth has created a masterpiece. Roth brings real emotion and strong determination into the world of the Factions - the five clans the populate Roth’s combative society. The second book brings stronger character development, more plot twists, and a deeper picture of the factions that were only sketched out in the first installment. The action raises your pulse, the secrets become deeper, and the suspense will leave you breathless. - Krysten
