Second book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth
The inter-faction war has started and the country is in chaos. Tris, Tobias, Marcus and some other members of Abnegation are on their way to Amity Headquarters to try and find refuge from the battle. They soon reach Amity, and are told by their faction leader that they can stay in Amity for as long as they wish, as long as they give up all of their weapons and not start fights. Tris and Tobias agree.
Later, Tris overhears Marcus and the Amity leader, Johanna, discussing something strange, and she corners Marcus and demands to know what they were talking about. Marcus confesses that Abnegation’s leaders died to protect a secret, but he tells her nothing else. This angers Tris.
Meanwhile, Tris is having nightmares about how she killed her friend, Will, while he was under a simulation, always realizing how she could have done something else to stop him killing her. This is made worse because she hasn’t confided in anyone, not even Tobias.
Soon, the Eritude arrive at Amity with the Dauntless traitors. Tris tells everyone to dress like the Amity so they won’t recognize the Abnegation with Tris and Tobias, but Tobias’ tattoo gives them away, and a gunfight starts. In the confusion, Tobias, Tris, Susan and Caleb manage to escape, and they head to Candor. Upon arrival Tris and Tobias are subjected to truth serum, where they have to tell the truth to any question asked. When she goes under, Tris blurts out her darkest secret…
She killed Will.
What happens now?
This book was pretty good, though it did get very confusing at one point, and I had to read it a few times before it made sense. Definitely not as good as Divergent, but it’s worth a read.
