One choice can transform you — or it can
destroy you. Tris Prior’s initiation day should have been marked by
celebration, victory, and the thrills of being ranked first among the
initiate class of her chosen faction, Dauntless. Instead, the day ends
with the unspeakable horrors of Erudite simulation attacks, and while
Tris survives thanks to her Divergent nature, many she loves do not.
War now seems inevitable. Though the Dauntless have been freed from Erudite mind control, conflict between the factions and their ideologies is only beginning. And in war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable — and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief, radical new discoveries, and a fast-deepening romance, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
