This book was more about Tris and Tobias’s relationship and the struggles they have with a battle of wills and a sense of what is right and wrong. Tris struggles with the darkness threatening to overtake her at the loss of a dear friend at her own hands. In the previous book Divergent, Tris looses practically everybody that she cares about and that leads her to want to just give up and to die feeling that death would atone for her actions and the deaths that she feels are on her hands even if she had no control over them.
This was another quick read for me. I enjoyed seeing how Tris and Tobias develop as a couple and the struggles they encounter throughout the book. The chaos that befalls the factions as they are forced to choose sides, each fighting for what they believe is right no matter how twisted their thoughts and reasons may be. From Jeanine craving the power and control of keeping the people in the city in the dark to Evelyn wanting to destroy all factions but still keep everybody in the city where she can keep control over them.
I would recommend this book to readers of all ages and so far as a whole I would recommend the series. I just started the third and last book last night so I should hopefully have a book review up for that shortly!
