The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered, fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature, and of herself, while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Rating: 5/5

My thoughts:

Disclaimer: I will be talking about events that happen in the book, so spoiler alert. You've been warned!

So this books format was a bit different then the first two in that each chapter isn't just told in Tris's P.O.V.,  but in every other chapter switches off between her and Tobias's P.O.V. Which I'll admit that took some getting use to, as I had gotten so use to Tris's perspective that I often forgot whose POV I was reading. But eventually, you get use to it and I ended up liking it that way. I enjoyed finding out Tobias's perspective on what was going on.

Overall, I really enjoyed the series! I'm very eager to see the next two movies.

MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!

I started to getting a sinking feeling that either Tris or Tobias was going to die, especially after the part where they were saying goodbye. I just for some reason thought it was Tobias! I think because of the book of short stories about Four that was released. I don't know why I just thought it was because he died in Allegiant.

Boy was I wrong!! But the moment she decided to go to the Weapons room instead of Caleb, I knew it was her. When I finished the chapter where she dies, I had to put the book down for a moment and go for a walk around my house because I knew what was coming next; Tobias finding out. That was devastating! It was just so heartbreaking, and my heart just felt so heavy throughout the remainder of the book.

Good book, good way to go out and I really like the way everything was tied up.

Before I go, here's the official Insurgent movie trailer that was released today!! So excited for this movie!


Looks good!! Can't wait!
