I love this series. The second book is usually the book where everything slows down. The action still was there and the conflict was kept fresh. There were some slow down moments and you got to know the main players better. Tris makes some very difficult choices and risks the budding friendships and romance to do what’s right. You get a few shocks throughout the book that make this book a successful continuation of “Divergent.” Ms. Roth really impressed me with some of her decisions. The story would be very different without the plot twists. The ending is masterful causing readers to crave her next book.
