InsurgentInsurgent by Veronica Roth
$17.99 hardcover, $9.99 ebook
Buy now: print » or ebook »

It seems like it would be tough to compete with her debut bestseller, Divergent, but luckily Veronica 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, you'll find that Roth has created a masterpiece. She brings real emotion and strong determination into the world of the Factions—the five clans the populate her combative society. This second book brings stronger character development, more plot twists, and a deeper picture of the factions that were only glimpsed in the first installment. The action raises your pulse, the secrets become deeper, and the suspense will leave you breathless! —Krysten
