My Rating: 4-Loved it
1st sentence/s:  "I wake with his name in my mouth.  Will.  Before I open my eyes, I watch him crumble to the pavement again.  Dead.  My doing.

My comments:  It took me almost three weeks to read this, but I had a lot going on and looked forward to every time I could sit down with it. The biggest problem was there were a LOT of characters from the first book that I didn't really remember and they were treated as if I really should know who they were. It sure does leave you hanging, waiting for the next installment.....

Goodreads Review:  One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of 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 and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
